@madeyem THANK YOU !! That saved my bacon! So let me ask this to all who answered do you have a password on your sql? Seems to be a problem with ‘no password’ mysql installations…
Again Thank you for this…it is now working.
When I try to run mysql -u root -p and I set it up with no password it doesn’t work. Then when I try the password for the adminuser I have that is tied to root it doesn’t work either…before it did…does it reset the password or something?
I did a sudo apt-get upgrade and let ubuntu do its thing but didn’t upgrade to the latest still on the same before issuing the command.
Now after restarting the server I try to go to the web gui and get
Database connection unavailable
What changed and how do I fix this so I can get back into my fog installation???
Help? Kind of a noob when it comes to linux but can limp along with it if get a little help.
Thanks for any help out there…
OK Well I solved my own issue. Had to retrace my steps and go all the way back to the beginning. When I set the IP and everything in the cfg file I had a dash instead of a equals sign next to the gateway.
My bad but glad I caught it. This only goes to show that you should not work in linux until the coffee has kicked in… So this is solved.
I just installed CentOS7 in my VM server and followed the instructions on how to install it and get it ready for FOG install.
All seems fine and dandy until I go to the fog install and I run into a problem with it installing what it needs to…
SO when it says installing package like mariadb or php it sais Failed! (Will try later) on most of them and it will not install…
I thought CentOS7 was one of the best to install on? What is causing this issue. And I already have it in my DNS and also put a exception in my firewall to allow all traffic to and from this server until it is done being setup, so it is not getting blocked for any reason.
What am I missing?
I appreciate any help or insight as to what I may be doing wrong or have not done.
Thanks for your time
OK I will do. Thanks for the quick reply and the down and dirty on how to… Being 1 of 2 techs in a district and the other tech is on vacation for 3 weeks :eek: helps me out greatly with the quick run down. I will try it later on Today and let you know what comes about.
I appreciate the information and yes I will have to bite the bullet and install .32 and then upgrade. Do I just go from .23 to 1.2.0? Or go through the steps of certain versions like from .32 to 1.X then from there to 1.2.0?
Can I uninstall the FOG 1.2.0 from my VM and install the .32 to it without loosing my clients I have already registered to it?
I know I am being kind of a wanny, but just want to do this as painless as possible, if it is at all possible. And yes I did have that same setup where I created the images in Virtual Box and then did a snap shot before I syspreped the machine just in case something happened, then did another snapshot after the sys-prep when I imaged it down to a machine and all went well.
However the machine I had that on the HD drive crashed and I lost all my images for it. I mean dead as a door-nail. AH well so goes the life of a techie…always telling people to backup, backup, backup and the one thing I forget to backup…well lesson learned. Yeah I was a idiot on that one. Let the insults commence
If you can give me any kind of quick step by step to either reinstall on my VM with the old then upgrade or what i would appreciate it. If not I understand and can muddle through it, just got a lot going on here and the less I have to muddle the better it would help…;)
