    Fog installations woes :(

    /Hi folks

    Ive been trying to setup and test Fog to see whether it would be a suitable replacement to what we currently use for imaging (ghost) how ever i have thus far been unable to get it to install.

    I have installed Fedora and have followed the install instructions to the latter but when it comes to installing fog i get the following...


    Installation Started...

    Installing required packages, if this fails
    make sure you have an active internet connection.

    * Skipping package: httpd (Already Installed)
    * Installing package: php
    * Installing package: php-gd
    * Installing package: php-cli
    * Installing package: mysql
    * Installing package: mysql-server
    * Installing package: php-mysql
    * Installing package: tftp-server
    * Skipping package: nfs-utils (Already Installed)
    * Installing package: vsftpd
    * Skipping package: net-tools (Already Installed)
    * Installing package: wget
    * Installing package: xinetd
    * Skipping package: tar (Already Installed)
    * Skipping package: gzip (Already Installed)
    * Installing package: make
    * Skipping package: m4 (Already Installed)
    * Installing package: gcc
    * Installing package: gcc-c++
    * Installing package: htmldoc
    * Skipping package: perl (Already Installed)
    * Installing package: perl-Crypt-PasswdMD5
    * Skipping package: lftp (Already Installed)

    Confirming package installation.

    * Checking package: httpd...OK
    * Checking package: php...Failed!
    [root@fogserver bin]#

    this happens every time, php seemingly will not install so fog wont.

    any ideas

    oh and im completely new to linux so a bit of a learning curve for me

    cheers

    I had simelar problems using fedora when I first tried setting Fog up. I switched to using Ubuntu to host it on intead and it installed first time on there.

    run the following commands as the root user -
    yum install php
    yum install php-mysql
    yum install php-gd
    yum install php-cli

    then run the fog installer.

    Obviously its ISA thats blocking it, however when i browse to the url via firefox it opens fine as i was asked to authenticate when i opened firefox the first time, however going through the terminal doesnt, is there anyway to resolve this?

    apt-get is the ubuntu packages installer

    have you set the proxy for yum?

    the easiest way to do this is:

    Code:
    http_proxy=http://your.proxy.tld:port
    export http_proxy
    then use yum as normal

    Tried that and it made no difference



    Do you have your DNS servers listed in /etc/resolv.conf ?
    can you give me an example of what this config should resemble?



    thanks for the help so far guys very much appreciated, please bare with me, like i said im new to linux and still finding my way about.

    cheers

    how have you set your IP?

    is it still set to DHCP?

    /etc/resolv.conf should contain the IP of the DNS Servers on your network

    Apparently, if you need to authenticate, you need to use this format:

    Code:
    http_proxy=http://user:pass@proxy.example.com:8080
    export http_proxy
