Hi @liuyanagit,

glad that you fixed your issue. Just a note on your solution:
There is always a risk that the code and configuration files in the master branch are more recent than your deployed version for example. So to avoid issues due to mismatches here I would recommend to refer to the file on your server.

You should find it here: /usr/share/icingaweb2/etc/schema/mysql.schema.sql

This way, you can always be sure that you create exactly the schema that is expected by the running icingaweb2 version. :slight_smile:

Thank you very much for your reminder. I’ve tried to find the file locally, but i cannot found. Therefor ,i copy the file from git.
I don’t know why this file is not available locally.

There is no “etc” folder in this directory.

but ,the file is empty!:slightly_frowning_face:

And that is why the installation failed. I am guessing corrupt package but could be anything.

yes, it is possible that the package is wrong. I install icinga_web by ‘yum install icingaweb2 icingacli’, maybe something else is wrong.

Could be a glitch in remote server or your internet connection.
Try to clean up yum cache and fetching the file manually:

yum clean all
yum --download-only icingaweb2

and examine how big is the RPM and the contents if you have the time.

Actually that’s a problem with Docker where the base image for Centos disables the entire content for packages populating /usr/share/doc. I’ve been debugging this for hours in the past.
