02:19You_Wish nyx
02:19nyx yo
02:19You_Wish you know about setting up vhost on apache
02:20nyx i know enough :)
02:20You_Wish can i bug you a little about it
02:20nyx maybe :)
02:20You_Wish i am having problem
02:20You_Wish example
02:21You_Wish www.test.com and test.com dont give me the same site when i have more than one site
02:21You_Wish you know what can cause that
02:22You_Wish i have like 4 sites on one ip
02:22You_Wish all of sudden they stopped working properly
02:23nyx http://httpd.apache.org/docs/vhosts/name-based.html <=- looked thru there?
02:23You_Wish yup
02:23nyx its just really hard to help without configuration blocks and stuff
02:23nyx did you see the ServerAlias option explained?
02:23You_Wish i look thru that alot
02:24You_Wish never used serveralias before
02:24You_Wish maybe that would be better for me
02:24You_Wish let me check it
02:24nyx well if you use a server alias, it will allow you to serve www.test.com and test.com from the same document root.
02:24nyx so they would both run out of one virtual server config and one directory root.
02:25nyx ServerName test.com
02:25nyx ServerAlias www.test.com
02:25nyx or even
02:25You_Wish ah ok
02:25nyx ServerAlias *.test.com
02:25nyx which means anything at all before test.com even dsfhsdkjfsd.test.com would be served from that vhost block
02:25You_Wish i never new i could use alias for that
02:25You_Wish thanks
02:25nyx nps :)
02:25nyx if you still have issues, come prod me later :)
02:25You_Wish k
02:29tizen One of you happen to know where the mysql log settings are?
02:29nyx usually in my.cnf
02:29tizen I have a log with all commands that have been sent it seems
02:29tizen yeah, it only defines the logfile in there
02:30--- ---> rafx [~rafx@adsl-68-75-184-209.dsl.emhril.ameritech.net] has joined #linode
02:31You_Wish in root has also logs
02:31nyx im almost positive that mysql loggin is configured out of my.cf, what distro?
02:31tizen anyways
02:32tizen i've been working too long
02:32tizen debian
02:32You_Wish root just has actual commands given to mysql
02:34rafx odd. can't boot anymore. not seeing anything in Lish (never connects console). tried single user mode. tried booting from backup disk image. tried booting via lish command & website. website says booting/running, then it goes down to poweroff again immediately.
02:34rafx !seen caker
02:34linbot rafx: caker was last seen here 7 hours, 30 minutes, and 44 seconds ago saying: * caker reaches through the phone and strangles the USAirways on-hold chick
02:37@caker rafx: one sec
02:37nyx mmmm on-hold chick
02:38rafx caker: fyi, tried booting brand new distro (80mb debian). fails with 'Linode already running' message showing up in the job queue.
02:38@caker rafx: you're back in business
02:38@caker (that was me)
02:38rafx thanks
02:39@caker JobID: 126004 - System Boot - My Debian 3.0r1 (Small) Profile - Success
02:39@caker JobID: 126005 - System Boot - Sarge-Kernel-2.6 = Failed Linode already running == me
02:39rafx previous attempts at booting didn't show any failure messages, just successes but went poweroff immediately.
02:40@caker somehow the 2.6.10-linode11 kernel entry wasn't pointing to any binary, but "Latest 2.6" was
02:40@caker fixed now
02:40tizen hmmm... Anyone know where the program 'dig' is in debian's apt?
02:41nyx bind-utils or dns-utils

02:56nyx 53 tcp
02:56nyx for bigger packet responses
02:56tizen yeah

12:14@caker it's got a freaking circuit board inside, so I can't hardwire it "ON", either
12:14optikal_ faulty new fans are really the big sucko

12:40npmr linode backups are do-it-yourself
12:40wade so, you would have to have a remote location to backup to?
12:41tsi or another linode
12:41tsi ;P
12:42wade wow, that seems strange that tape backups, or a second hard drive or something isn't available

12:43npmr the linode host machines use raid-1 storage
12:44npmr so your disk images are already on a mirrored device
12:44wade so they raid to themselve?
12:44wade themself
12:44npmr the host machines do
12:44wade so if a HD fails, you're okay?
12:44npmr yes
12:45npmr unless the other also fails before the first is replaced
12:51tsi are there hot spares?
12:51tsi or even warm spares or chilly ones?
12:57npmr i don't know
12:57npmr i'm pretty sure the host machines do not have hot spares
12:58npmr and i do know that the dcs have stocks of spare parts
12:58npmr parts, generally, that is
12:58npmr not just replacement drives
12:59@caker mmmm
12:59@caker http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=259-132
12:59* caker orders 10
13:00adamg you going to get them before you fly out?
13:00@caker Yeah
13:00@caker Looks like I'm leaving Thursday
13:01adamg k, thought you wre going tomorrow
13:04npmr caker, what's the typical wait for a replacement drive when one of the host machine's drives fails?
13:04@caker npmr: thus far, I've just moved everyone off that machine onto a new host, and kept the machine with the faulty device as a dev box
13:04@caker One in each datacenter
13:05@caker but, I have replacement drives here which I'll ship up to the DC and just have their techs install it
13:09rafx hi caker, thanks for the help lastnight.
13:10npmr weren't there several hosts running on one drive a month or two ago?
13:10@caker yeah, but due to a kernel bug
13:10@caker rafx: no problem
13:10--- ---> tierra|w [~tierra@dsl093-225-126.slc1.dsl.speakeasy.net] has joined #linode
13:10npmr oh, so the drives were actually fine?
13:11@caker npmr: which I've been waiting for a stable host kernel to upgrade, which will happen in the next week or two (I swear this time)
13:11@caker 2.6.9 as a host was fubar-ed, and I'm happy with 2.6.10 and the cfq-ts stuff, so it'll happen now
13:12npmr excellent
13:12rafx which host kernel is host41 running?
13:12npmr i still have 2.6.4 running on oz
13:12@caker yeah, sometimes a drive gets kicked out of the raid, and 2.6.4, 2.6.7 bombs when you try to add it back -- which is what happened to host24 two days ago
13:12@caker rafx: cat /proc/cpuinfo
13:12npmr [inkblot@oz:~]$ uptime

23:02@caker very narrow chance of that happening, of course -- but that was one of the last things the host was doing at the time
