<solved> Debian 10 vhost [closed]

Greethings,

several years ago a collegue of mine installed OCS in our company. Sadly nobody accualy used it till 3 months. Now i recognized the Version is pretty old and even it's OS is no longer supported.

So i decided to install a new one.

Therefore i've chosen an allready existing Debian 10 Webserver.

My VHost is called "ocs.localdomain.tld".

It's location on the server itself is "/opt/ocs.localdomain.tld/ocsreports"

I wanted to cut off the "/ocsreports"-suffix from the url wich acctually works, i guess.

But my agents aren't able to connect to the server.

Here is a short snippit from it's logfile:

I thought the "/ocsreports" - suffix could be a problem so i improvised a litle ;)

I created a symbolic link inside the VHosts root directory wich points to itself, so it should work even if it's hardcoded somewhere. And i modified the ini file of the agent itself so that it connects to the "ocsreports" suffix.

And yes the agent log looks better, but it still wont work:

Hi,

This definition is not correct => Server=http://ocs.localdomain.tld

You must have this => Server=http://ocs.localdomain.tld/ocsinventory on all the clients.

Make the change, save and restart the service, then send an inventory

Hi Frank,

i fixed it.

I've read through the errors of other people and recognized my error wasnt cuz of the vHost.

It seems like a common issue.

The installer asks for Credentials but didn't wrote it in all files down.

Sometimes it will wrote down the default values.

I checked each directory (etc/apache, /usr, /opt/) for wrong database strings by executing

$ grep -r "ocsweb" <path>

After this i updated the Connections and reinstalled the Agent.

Now it works.

I also used the ur url.

Thanks.
