Normally, to get to the FOG web interface, you have to type

x.x.x.x/fog/management

This works fine, but if FOG is the only thing your Linux box is running, you can simplify this with a redirect so that simply typing the x.x.x.x into a web browser takes you to the FOG login page.


On your FOG server, we will create a file called index.php using vi.

vi /var/www/html/index.php

Instructions on using Vi: vi

In here, you'd write (or copy/paste) this:

<?php
header('Location: http://x.x.x.x/fog/management/index.php');
exit;
?>

Save this file.

Permissions on this file should be set as:

chmod 744 /var/www/html/index.php
#If CentOS, Fedora, or RHEL:
chown root:apache /var/www/html/index.php
#If Debian or Ubuntu:
chown root:www-data /var/www/html/index.php

Now, when you go to x.x.x.x you'll be taken to the FOG login screen! How cool is that?!?
