00:28<Chris93>So, I'm wanting to install PHPMyAdmin but I didn't want to install it in an area which can be accessed by the public. Is there a place I can install phpMyAdmin but still access it through the browser, say by my IP/phpmyadmin instead of
00:28<opello>setup a directory with some apache access rules that only allow your ip to get to it?
00:28<bob2>install using apt
00:28<bob2>change the config to only allow access from localhost
00:29<bob2>use ssh forwarding
00:29<bob2>drink beer
00:29<opello>(or localhost, and use ssh dynamic forwarding to setup a socks proxy)
00:29<Chris93>Is there an article on this?
00:29<Chris93>apt-get install phpmyadmin ?
00:32-!-Turl [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
00:32<amitz>I never tried phpmyadmin before, but I have this feeling that your time spent on learning on how to install phymyadmin is better spent on how to configure php :-p
00:33<Bdragon>Or using the command line client
00:33<Chris93>Sounds confronting. lol.
00:33*Bdragon is MUCH more comfortable at mysql> than in phpmyadmin
00:34<amitz>Bdragon: I'm much comfortable with urmom
00:35-!-Dan- [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:35<bob2>sudo nano /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf, add "Allow from localhost", "Deny from all", in the Directory block - two lines, no quotes
00:35<Chris93>I know all the commands for MySQL etc, I just wanted something visual
00:36-!-mathew [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:36<Chris93>Okay, wait so first I need to install using apt, is that apt-get install phpmyadmin?
00:36<bob2>aptitude, yes
00:36<Bdragon>Had a blast watching earlier.
00:36<Chris93>Alright, that seemed to work
00:37<amitz>bob2: look at the bright side, in exchange Chris93 will be well versed in the art of apt instead. ;-)
00:37<Chris93>Do I chose apache2 or apache-ssl? or something else?
00:39<bob2>don't you already have a web server
00:39<Chris93>I just chose to install it for apache2
00:40<Chris93>bob2, I updated the apache.conf
00:40<Chris93>so now I need to forward it or something?
00:41<bob2>just restart apache
00:41<Chris93>You said I needed to use ssh forwarding?
00:41<bob2>since it's ana apache config file
00:41<bob2>now only localhost can use phpmyadmin
00:42<Chris93>Okay, it's restarted
00:42-!-sorressean [~notI@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:42<Chris93>So how do I get to phpMyAdmin now?
00:46<Chris93>bob2, are you there?
00:46<bob2>ssh forwarding
00:47<bob2>then configure your browser to use localhost:9853 as a SOCKS proxy
00:47<bob2>in firefox this is in settings -> advanced -> network -> proxy or so
00:48<bob2>if you have a static ip at home, you might like to just allow that instead
00:48<bob2>then you don't need to use putty
00:49<Chris93>I have a dynamic IP
00:53<Chris93>Okay, trying to follow those steps
00:58<Chris93>bob2, so I've gone into options > advanced > network > proxy, which radio button do I choose?
01:01<amitz>Chris93: what are they? So some others not really remember can help.
01:01<Chris93>No Proxy, Auto-detect proxy settings for this network, Manual proxy configuration, Automatic proxy configuration URL
01:03-!-mau2 [~Cookie@] has joined #linode
01:03<amitz>Perhaps you want manyal.
01:04<Chris93>Not really sure what to enter in there - I THOUGHT that would disable my Internet access if I did such a thing
01:05<amitz>but you need to change it if you ever need to change.
01:06-!-Clooth|away is now known as Clooth
01:06<Chris93>Nevermind, found a link on the page that bob2 sent that explains what to do
01:06<amitz>no harm to try anyway but no.
01:06<Chris93>thanks anyway amitz :)
01:06<Chris93>Thanks bob2 as well :)
01:07<Chris93>I'll catchya later, gotta go.

01:21<bob2>that's not a useful description of the problem man
01:21<bob2>explain EXACTLY what you did
01:21<bob2>specifically what your firefox proxy settings look like
01:21-!-Clooth is now known as Clooth|away
01:23<Chris93>Ahh nevermind...
01:23<Chris93>This isn't even that way that I explained I wanted to go about it... I don't exactly know why I was linked to that page earlier... oh well
01:23<Chris93>I'm going to find another way to do it
01:25<bob2>I didn't see you explain it anywhere
01:26<bob2>however, that page explains how to allow only you, via ssh to login to phpmyadmin
01:26<bob2>16:48:20 < bob2> if you have a static ip at home, you might like to just allow that instead

01:37<Chris93>Sorry, I was AFK
01:38<Chris93>I have a dynamic IP... sorry, I've got a really bad headache at the moment.. lol.
01:39<Chris93>Argh.. so I'm reading this:
01:39<Chris93>I've done all of what was stated to do... but I don't know the URL I need to type in to access PMA
01:39<bob2>that's the same thing I told you to do
01:40<bob2>you need to a) have putty proxy requests to your linode and b) tell your browser to use that proxy
01:40<bob2>then you access
01:41<Chris93>When I tell my browser to use that proxy, I can't access the Internet
01:41<Chris93>Let me try again
01:41<bob2>then your browser was misconfigured, or putty was misconfigured or you have a bizarro firewall on your lindoe
01:42<Chris93>can you see me?
01:42<Chris93>Yeah, I tried the proxy thing again in FireFox just as the guide you linked me to states, it screws up
01:42<Chris93>I get this error
01:43<Chris93>Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at
01:43<bob2>as above man
01:43<bob2>then your browser was misconfigured, or putty was misconfigured or you have a bizarro firewall on your lindoe
01:43<bob2>perhaps put up screenshots of your browser and putty
01:45<Chris93>Wait, one thing before I continue
01:45<Chris93>I use mod_rewrite to rewrite my URL's... will this prevent what I'm attempting to do?

01:47<Clorith>Clooth, go shoot some "röligt" into your brain

01:49<Chris93>bob2, is there any other way to go about phpMyAdmin?
01:50<SelfishMan>don't use phpmyadmin?!?
01:51<Chris93>SelfishMan, ???
01:51*SelfishMan fails to see what was unclear about that
01:51<Chris93>Was that a question o..
01:52<SelfishMan>The effort you put in to secure phpmyadmin (as if that was possible) could have been applied to learning the mysql shell and still had time to spare
01:52<Chris93>I see
01:52-!-Clooth is now known as Clooth|away
01:53<Chris93>So through shell, am I able to import exported data from phpMyAdmin?
01:53<Chris93>do I need to upload that to the server and import it locally?
01:54<Chris93>How can I uninstall phpMyAdmin through shell? x_x
01:54<Thor_R|Away>very carefully
01:54<Chris93>lol, sounds confronting yet again
01:55<Chris93>uhm.. so "very carefully phpmyadmin" ?
01:55-!-Clorith [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:56<Thor_R|Away>man apt-get
01:56<Thor_R|Away>man yum
01:56-!-MrGlass [] has joined #linode
01:56<Chris93>That sounds dirty
01:56<Thor_R|Away>manual pages are your friend
01:57<Chris93>so, apt-get purge phpmyadmin?
01:57<Chris93>I got two faileds
01:58<Chris93>ah, nevermind
01:59<Chris93>Okay, so using MySQL in shell... how can I import my database from my old host that used phpMyAdmin?
02:00<Thor_R|Away>did you export it as a .sql file?
02:00<Chris93>I'll do that now - I guess that I pop the .sql file onto the server?
02:01<Thor_R|Away>Yes export it as an sql file, then you can use mysql command line to import it
02:01<Chris93>Okay, cool :).
02:02-!-kronos003 [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
02:02<Chris93>So, I'm saving the .sql file, does it matter which encoding I chose?
02:04<Chris93>I saved it as a UTF-8
02:05<Thor_R|Away>I do not have this option in the version of PHpmyadmin that i have.
02:07<linbot>amitz: [dig] status: NOERROR | ;; ANSWER SECTION: 7200 IN A | ;; AUTHORITY SECTION
02:07<Thor_R|Away>once you have uploaded the file to yoru server: mysql -u username -p databasename < exportfile.sql

02:10<Thor_R|Away>well what are you trying to do? take your database from one server and put it on another one?
02:10-!-Thor_R|Away is now known as Thor_R
02:10<Chris93>Well, I've got the exported .sql file now saved in public_html on my domian on my linode
02:10<Chris93>I just want to import all that data
02:11<Thor_R>yes you can specifi the full path in that command
02:11-!-stanix [] has joined #linode
02:12<Chris93>I guess it worked?
02:12<Chris93>I have no idea
02:12<Chris93>I think it did actually

02:13-!-RossH [] has joined #linode
02:14<Chris93>How can I find out if it worked?
02:15<Thor_R>mysql -u username -p
02:15<Thor_R>enter password
02:15<Thor_R>then type: use databasename;
02:15<Thor_R>next: show tables;
02:15<Chris93>Database changed.
02:15<Thor_R>and you should get all t he tables that are there
02:16<Chris93>Empty set
02:16<Chris93>I think I imported it to the wrong user
02:16<Chris93>I imported it to root
02:16<Chris93>How can I delete the imported database from root?
02:16<Thor_R>well did you login as root just before?
02:17<Chris93>Before when I imported it I did, I don't know why - that was stupid.
02:17<Thor_R>when you did "mysql -u username -p" did you use root?
02:17<Chris93>no, I used my proper username
02:17<Chris93>but before that I used root
02:18<Chris93>Apparently root doesn't have the database
02:18<Chris93>no, wait, it does
02:18<Chris93>How do I delete a database?
02:19<Thor_R>drop database db_name;
02:20<Chris93>I was close
02:20<Chris93>so now I need to import that .sql properly
02:21<Thor_R>you must create the database first btw
02:21<Thor_R>sorry if i did not mention that
02:22<Chris93>Haha, that might help :p
02:22<Thor_R>and you should also set up a user account other than root
02:22<Chris93>Did that :)
02:22<Thor_R>with priviledges
02:22<Thor_R>to that database
02:23<Chris93>so I logged in
02:23<Chris93>created the database
02:23<Chris93>now how do I import that data?
02:24<Chris93>import exported.sql; ?
02:24<Thor_R>mysql -u username -p databasename < exportfile.sql
02:24<Thor_R>same as i said b4
02:24<Chris93>whilst I'm logged in?
02:24<SelfishMan>grant urmom on urmom.* to 'urmom'@'localhost' identified by 'urmom';

02:26<Chris93>might be the encoding?
02:26<Thor_R>If you have shelll access to the old server you should use mysqldump to get the export file
02:26<Thor_R>instead of phpmyadmin
02:26<Chris93>I'll see
02:27<Chris93>Okay, yep, I do.

02:29<Thor_R>everyone has to learn theese things at some point
02:30<Chris93>I get an access denied.
02:30<Chris93>I'm on a shared host, don't know if that means anything
02:30<Thor_R>shared hosts usually have the form of username_databasename... etv
02:31<Thor_R>so make sure you enter the proper info...
02:31<Chris93>one sec
02:32<Chris93>think it worked that time
02:32<Chris93>I have no idea WHERE the file saved though LOL!
02:32*Chris93 searches
02:32<Thor_R>in your working dir
02:33<Chris93>got it
02:34<Chris93>awesome :D
02:35<Chris93>I give you all 100 internets
02:35<Thor_R>there is also another utility you might want to google a little, 'mysqladmin' it has it's uses

02:38<Chris93>Pizza too :p
02:38<Chris93>Earlier when I was trying to setup phpmyadmin, I did something in shell.. not EXACTLY sure what I did (lol). I believe I opened a port or something
02:39<Thor_R>look at your command history
02:39<Chris93>I did ssh -L 8080:localhost:80
02:39<Chris93>do I need to worry about that?

03:43<Clorith>I'll give it a shot
03:43<Clorith>if it's jsut /logs/ as I suspect, I will scream, hehe

09:07<atula>hello. if I have 1 linode hosting a few webapps (small ones anyways) with different domain names. I would like the server to be able to send out email from these webapps to my users. I closed port 25 already. I believe I could "masquerade" 1 domain, but what about multiple domains (since I have more than 1 webapp on the linode).
09:08<HoopyCat>usually, you'll set the outgoing e-mail address from the application sending the mail; using the MTA's masquerade function won't let that work
09:08-!-thegodlikehobo [~thegodlik@] has joined #linode
09:08<atula>I see.
09:08<atula>so all I need to do is get sendmail to start working. with no real config
09:09<atula>since I am only using it to send email
09:09<HoopyCat>i'm rusty on my sendmail, but roughly yes
09:09<atula>HoopyCat: cool
09:09<atula>HoopyCat: btw why are you always online ? are you a bot?
09:10<atula>Anna Botem ?
09:10<thegodlikehobo>so is a server failing to boot after a reboot initiated via the command line expected behavior?
09:10<atula>oooh good question. it happened to me last night.
09:10<HoopyCat>atula: i'm not always online, but i'm on vacation right now and in the middle of triaging e-mail and waiting for the clothes dryer and mailman
09:11<atula>you do vacation at home ?
09:11<atula>where are you based in?
09:11<HoopyCat>thegodlikehobo: is lassie enabled? there's no difference between a reboot and a halt; both should trigger lassie to insert a boot job
09:11<atula><-- Boston, MA here... so it's freakin' cold
09:11<HoopyCat>atula: it's less "vacation" and more "inter-semester break", but rochester, new york; it's not terribly cold here any more
09:12<atula>aah new york
09:12<thegodlikehobo>HoopyCat: no, lassie is not enabled. and last i checked, reboot is quite different from shutdown -h, unless linode does things differently :(
09:12<mwalling>linode does things differently
09:12<HoopyCat>thegodlikehobo: the kernel exiting is the kernel exiting
09:13<mwalling>you could always alias reboot='ssh reboot'
09:14<HoopyCat>"Halite RS25 25-Pound Bag Of Premium Ice Melting Rock Salt"... premium?
09:14<thegodlikehobo>HoopyCat: well, i expected the server to *re*boot after issuing reboot. :p and thanks mwalling, i wasnt of the slight linode quirk.
09:15<thegodlikehobo>wasnt aware, rather.
09:15<mwalling>thegodlikehobo: how would the hosts know? like HoopyCat said, kernel exits are kernel exits
09:15<HoopyCat>so, $30 for a 25-pound bag of premium rock salt, or $1.49 for a 10-pound bag of rock salt at the supermarket
09:16<thegodlikehobo>well linode is the first of three xen-based vps services i've used when server doesnt come back up after a reboot is all.
09:16<HoopyCat>there's a sucker born every minute
09:16<HoopyCat>thegodlikehobo: that's because you've disabled lassie
09:16-!-linville [] has joined #linode
09:17-!-chemosh [] has joined #linode
09:18<thegodlikehobo>HoopyCat: reboot should reboot. if lassie is a requirement for reboot to work properly on linode, then ill enable it.
09:18<mwalling>[01-15] 09:13:26 < mwalling> you could always alias reboot='ssh reboot'
09:19<thegodlikehobo>mwalling: i know mwalling, i did make an alias, thanks again
09:19<mwalling>all lassie is is a check if your kernel exited without a host job to stop your kernel
09:19<mwalling>so when you stop your machine without telling the host, lassie will start it
09:20<mwalling>(where stopping can be intentional, like poweroff or reboot, or accidental like reboot_on_panic)
09:21<HoopyCat>lassie is, however, usually NOT fast enough to catch a HCF instruction before the fire spreads to the paper tape
09:22<HoopyCat>i'm pretty sure only the dom0 can execute a HCF anyway
09:23<HoopyCat>!f hcf instruction

11:12<amitz>well, in the movie they always say "this is not a training" or something like that. So perhaps assume omission of that statement means it's just a drill? :-p
11:12<JshWright>or it could have been burnt toast
11:13<mwalling>if the smoke ejectors arent running, its not a real fire
11:13<mwalling>then again, i'm a muster coordinator for my floor...
11:13<amitz>about fire alarm... do you know melinjo, or gnetum gnenom JshWright? ;-)
11:13<mwalling>i'm supposed to be a role model

11:14<@Perihelion>Our system turned everything on/off as needed regardless of whether or not it was a drill :<
11:14<mwalling>i know, right?
11:14<amitz>mwalling: you mean a smoke sucker then throw the smoke away? interesting, first time I heard about it :-p
11:15<@Perihelion>We had a haylon system too that they tested once
11:15<@Perihelion>(at my old job, btw :P)
11:15<mwalling>Perihelion: we have a 5 story atrium with a wind turbine inside it, they dont run the ejectors unless they have to
11:15<@Perihelion>That seems sensible
11:15*amitz googles.
11:15<@Perihelion>I'm not sure what the point of running everything in a drill is
11:15<mwalling>too hard to not run it
11:16<JshWright>mwalling: my first day at $CURRENT_EMPLOYER we had a smoke condition in a kitchen (burnt toast), as I stepped out of my office to head outside, two employees come marching down the hall with a fire extinguisher. At that point I decided I wanted nothing to do with $CURRENT_EMPLOYER's "incident response team"
11:16<mwalling>the panel trouble light has been on for a couple months now
11:16<@Perihelion>Well, if they would turn the keys as necessary on the panel it would be quite easy to disable some things
11:16<@Perihelion>Like they did with the gas :)
11:16<mwalling>JshWright: ha, we have fire protection, and their unioned, and non-union employees cant touch the extinguishers
11:16<atula>btw. do I need to setup anything after I install sendmail? I just need it to send webapp/server's email out.I don't need a full mta. I just need it to send out the emails.

11:17<mwalling>amitz: welcome to $megacorp
11:18<mwalling>you have to be trained in the use of extinguishers
11:18<JshWright>mwalling: I've often thought about getting a private fire gig, seems like a nice easy ride
11:18<mwalling>but they wont train non-union employees... and exceeding your level of training is grounds for termination
11:18<JshWright>can you use the AED?
11:19<@Perihelion>So they'd fire you for putting out a fire?
11:19<mwalling>Perihelion: in theory, yes
11:19<JshWright>jed: yes
11:19<@Perihelion>That seems silly \o/

11:21<mwalling>$Chief'sKid says that since i wasn't told i failed, i passed, and so $Chief appointed me ems coord
11:22<JshWright>that's an elected position for us (which means I get to decline the nomination ;) )
11:25<JshWright>that's a hard test to fail anyway...
11:25-!-JM [] has joined #linode
11:25<Guspaz>Aren't EMTs private companies in the US?
11:25<JshWright>in fact, it's a little frightening how hard it is to fail
11:26<JshWright>Guspaz: there are both public and private EMS agencies

11:26<atula>quick question: do I need to setup anything after I install sendmail? I just need it to send webapp/server's email out.I don't need a full mta. I just need it to send out the emails.
11:27<Guspaz>Ours used to be private companies contracted by the crown corporation in charge of EMS, but now I think they all work directly for the crown corporation.

11:29<JshWright>EMS servies are provided by a couple different companies, depending on where you live. Some are for-profit private companies, some are non-profit's with paid staff, and some are non-profit volunteer organizations (actually, most of them nowadays are a mixture of paid and volunteer)

11:30<JshWright>there's also a difference between transporting ambulance agencies, and Fire/Rescue first response agencies
11:31<jackson_>atula, I know on suse the sendmail is pretty well locked down by default
11:31<JshWright>in the suburban/rural communities around Syracuse, the ambulance agencies tend to cover large areas, so often a closer fire/rescue unit is dispatched as well to initiate care prior to the ambulance's arrival
11:31<atula>I am using centos. lemmme ask those guys
11:31<JshWright>atula: I outsource my e-mail to Google, so no help from me
11:32<atula>JshWright: me too with Google Apps. But I need to send message/updates to my user and tha tmay go above 500 per 24 hours
11:33<atula>which is a limitation on google Apps
11:33<Guspaz>Ours are all paid. And like everything in Quebec, they're unionized.
11:33<jackson_>yeah i have the same issue
11:33<Guspaz>Everything is unionized.
11:33<Guspaz>Single most unionized state in the entire world :(
11:33<Guspaz>Only place to have had a unionized walmart. Twice. I think you can guess what happened to them.

11:45<compwhizii>Hi, a linode user SSH bruted my linode, can I talk to a staff member. I have logs.
11:46<JshWright>pharaun: old news
11:46<pharaun>a friend just linked to me recently
11:46<pharaun>what was the deal?
11:46<sorressean>ssh bruted?
11:46<sorressean>learn to secure your ssh? :o
11:46<compwhizii>JshWright, I'd rather hand over the IP and info to staff directly, I don't seem to have much faith in abuse emails.
11:46<pharaun>oth are currently pointing to IP addresses owned by Linode, a US-based company that offers Virtual Private Server hosting. The IP addresses in question are within the same subnet, and they are six IP addresses apart from each other
11:46<sorressean>compwhizii: submit a ticket then
11:47<pharaun>that was in the article made me wonder what was up
11:47<compwhizii>jed, Alrighty then.
11:48<Guspaz>You print out your abuse e-mails? :P
11:48<JshWright>Guspaz: that wouldn't be completely absurd
11:48-!-JasonF [] has joined #linode
11:49<Guspaz>It would be a waste of paper, though.
11:49<JshWright>Guspaz: courts like paper, I find CYA type documents are always best kept on dead trees
11:50<Peng>pharaun: There hasn't been an official statement about it. It's not a particularly interesting situation for Linode. Every host gets abuse.
11:51-!-Turl [] has joined #linode
11:51<pharaun>Peng: ah, so linode won't be going away cos just about every host has a chance of being used for something "bad"
11:52<Peng>pharaun: What do you mean?
11:52<pharaun>Peng: what i mean when i saw the article i was a bit worried that it would give linode a bad rap
11:52<pharaun>or what so not, but i guess in hind sight, just about all hosts would be vulternable to someone buying their services and using it for an attack
11:53<JshWright>pharaun: it's also important to note that the dynamic domains are "currently" pointing...
11:53<pharaun>good point
11:53<compwhizii>jed, typical abuse email sent
11:53<Peng>pharaun: Well, sure, it is bad press...
11:53-!-neilio is now known as zz_neilio
11:53*Peng shrugs.
11:53<pharaun>but it won't make the company fold overnight
11:54<pharaun>so haha yeah i guess i'm worrying about silly things :)
11:54<Peng>I already like Linode, so it doesn't bother me. If I had never heard of Linode before, it would probably make me uneasy.
11:54<pharaun>yeah, i like linode too, got a host with them, it has been *great*
11:54<pharaun>jed: thanks, reading
11:54<Peng>jed: There's a difference between "following" and "actually reading" .:D
11:55<ericoc>nice, got the fail whale
11:56<pharaun>yeah bad press ut, dyn dns, that's good point
11:56<pharaun>about it "pointing"
11:56<compwhizii>"The chinese attack on google was using linode VPS machines? Chinese government black ops hackers use the same VPS provider as me?" he says it like if it was true it would be a bad thing
11:56<compwhizii>i concur

12:00<compwhizii>compwhizii's method for dealing with SSH bruteforcers. Step one: Look through auth.log, look for mass denies.
12:00-!-grawity [] has joined #linode
12:01<compwhizii>Step two: WHOIS the IP. If it's american make a note of the IP and abuse email, otherwise forget it.
12:01<compwhizii>Step three: Add to iptables via webmin, sync to all servers.
12:01<sorressean>compwhizii: any reason why your sharing your amazing knowledge with us?
12:01<compwhizii>I'm bored.
12:01<ericoc>eric's method: iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j DROP
12:02<pharaun>this is kind of a stupid one
12:02<pharaun>but i move my port to a different one
12:02<pharaun>it gets rid of all of the stupid script kiddies
12:02<compwhizii>that works well too
12:02<ericoc>security by obscurity
12:02<pharaun>sure it does not work for "nmap'd"
12:02<sorressean>well, now that you've enlightened me with your way to detect hackers, I shall have another cup of coffee to aid in my comntemplation.
12:02<pharaun>but i use ssh key
12:02*sorressean wants to set up a honeypot on 22
12:02<pharaun>so i don't wory about password brute forcing *anyway*
12:02<pharaun>but i just don't want to have to filter or see 2000000 lines of brute force attempt
12:02<pharaun>a day in my log
12:02<ericoc>pubkey auth+ i tend to use ssh over openvpn anyways
12:02<pharaun>yeah i don't have password auth at all
12:03<pharaun>its a purely lazyness move
12:03<pharaun>my concern about using "rate limit"
12:03<sorressean>I'm curious about something
12:03<pharaun>is locking myself out
12:03<pharaun>if someone is "brute forcing"
12:03<ericoc>my friend used to lock himself out like every day
12:03<ericoc>he wasn't so bright though
12:03<sorressean>if I switch to public keys, can I put two keys in for my auth? and yeah, I tend to lock myself out sometimes. <3 lish
12:04<Pryon>you can use eleventy keys
12:04<ericoc>you can put two pubkeys in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
12:04<ericoc>as many as you want, yeah
12:04<sorressean>awesome. you just put them on their own line, no?
12:04<sorressean>cool. my scp and ssh clients don't use the same key-types, so... I have to use two. :(
12:05<pharaun>question with rate limit
12:05<pharaun>is this "global" or is it like per ip>
12:05<sorressean>it's global I believe.
12:06<sorressean>well, there goes that "believe,"
12:06<pharaun>i've been avoiding rate limit cos i don't want to "lock" myself out cos some script kiddie was brute forcing the machine
12:07<pharaun>never thought about that one
12:07<pharaun>jed: yeah i'm more used to PF myself
12:07<pharaun>but yeah
12:07<sorressean>is there a way using iptables to get a list of the rules it's got applied? I'd like to toss arno-iptables for my own config.
12:08<sorressean>yeah, I figured that's what it was. translating would be easier than reading through that script, though
12:09<compwhizii>why does it seem that I've locked myself out with iptables again

12:35<Guspaz>Fremont is full, it seems.
12:36<axod>hmm odd then, unless I misread, it was late...
12:36<rawrwx>Atlanta is barren

12:36<rawrwx>anyone on an Atlanta linode?

12:42<Guspaz>Mibbit also works rather well in Chrome when you appify it; no browser UI means the window looks like a "real" app.

12:43<axod>java is great IMHO, big corporations misuse of it is the problem.
12:43<Guspaz>I would like, though, for Chrome to have an option to not use the primary browser UI process for appified sites.
12:43<Guspaz>As in, double click the mibbit icon on my desktop, and it doesn't share the UI process with my web browsing.
12:43<@Perihelion>Well, ever since they fixed the garbage collection issue it runs much better
12:43<axod>don't they each use different processes?
12:43-!-vomitsonyou [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:43<Guspaz>They all share the UI process, unfortunately.
12:44<Guspaz>So, mibbit gets its own process for most things, but you still can't restart the UI process (say, memory bloat) without killing mibbit.
12:45<Guspaz>I've managed to trigger race conditions where it did, though, by starting up mibbit and chrome at the same time.
12:45<Guspaz>I've seen occasionally two browser UI processes get spawned.
12:45*rb thinks time to call switchanddata/palo alto

13:02<Guspaz>_Scott_: Possible, but I didn't notice a netsplit.
13:03<Peng>If the connection wasn't down long, it may not have timed out.
13:03<Peng>If you don't actually send any traffic, it's not like TCP will notice.
13:04<Pryon>Dean: you might already have a NameVirtualHost directive in ports.conf (unless ubuntu does it differently than debian)
13:04<Peng>Also it said "some routes".
13:05<axod>do linode have any specific stuff for datacenter->datacenter routing I wonder
13:05<axod>maybe that plays some role
13:05<axod>ah well, all is good in the world now, and it's friday!
13:05<wrkq>Besides, why are you putting your vhosts in httpd.conf instead of useing the sites-available / sites-enabled system?

14:07<Nivex>just stay away from these guys:
14:07<Nivex>we had a free cert through them because we're a .edu

14:07<ericoc>i actually had Comodo telemarket me because my cacert was expiring recently

14:24<xpurple>I need advice. I setup an xserver on my linode and I can vnc in and use it, but for some reason my keyboard doesn't work right. It's like its all mapped wrong. Any advice?
14:24<mwalling>dont use X
14:24<JshWright>use SSH and a terminal?
14:24<xpurple>In general, yes.
14:24<xpurple>But there are a few applications that are X only.
14:25*Guspaz prefers NX to VNC. Much faster.
14:25<xpurple>I only want it for light use.
14:25-!-KHobbits [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:25<Guspaz>NX is lighter than VNC and allows you to run a single application without a desktop environment or window manager.
14:26<xpurple>I will look into that.
14:26<_Scott_>why not just use ssh?
14:26<xpurple>Because I want to run X.
14:26<Nivex>for quick and dirty: ssh -XC yourlinode xapplication
14:26<Guspaz>You could, for example, run uTorrent on a Linux box with NX, connect to it from a Windows box, and you'd be hard pressed to tell that uTorrent wasn't running locally on the Windows box.
14:26<Guspaz>It'd have a task-bar entry, it would have an icon in the sys-tray and could be minimized to sys-tray, etc.

14:27<Nivex>I've never been able to get nx working, though admittedly I haven't tried lately

14:28<Nivex>I want to be able to "apt-get install freenx" on ubuntu and just have it work
14:28<Nivex>it's not there yet
14:28<Guspaz>It's more like RDP than VNC. It takes X and does compression/caching, but most of the savings are from eliminating most round-trips.
14:29<Guspaz>I've never used freenx, only the closed-source version.
14:29<wrkq>From what I heard freenx isn't quite up to par with the commercial one...

14:33<Guspaz>That's client-only.
14:34<mwalling>unless LTS stands for longhorn terminal services...
14:35<Nivex>it would be nice if you could somehow wedge some of the dxpc type stuff into ssh -X
14:35<rogi>freenx is really significantly faster than VNC?
14:36-!-Clooth is now known as Clooth|away
14:36*Dianoga knows nothing of the above, but found it using google
14:36<wrkq>VNC sends you a bitmap.
14:36<wrkq>Remote X sends you only the Clib stuff, and keeps most of the stuff on your (Xserver's) end.
14:37<wrkq>NX also send only the updates, like X, but at the same time keeps enough state at the other end that it can remove most of the extremely delaying roundtrips.
14:37<wrkq>grr, Xlib.
14:37<rogi>ok. sounds interesting.
14:37<wrkq>Remote X would be fast enough, if modern apps werent written and tested only on local machine where XShm is available.
14:38<jimcooncat>I've heard the Ubuntu devs have been using Neatx, but I don't know if there are regular packages for it yet
14:38<rawrwx>does anyone here remote X into their linode?

14:38<jimcooncat>Neatx is Google's version of nx

15:16<rawrwx>Guspaz: for instance?
15:16<@caker>rawrwx: how to reproduce an OOM? that depends on what services are causing it to go over...
15:16*rawrwx is just curious
15:17<Guspaz>Understand that there will be some downtime while the image copies to the new host, and file a ticket.
15:17<rawrwx>take apache2 as a case study
15:17<rawrwx>just take the LAMP stack
15:17<jeremiah_>caker: How do I go about that? Fill out a support ticket?
15:17<Guspaz>rawrwx: Install PHP in Apache. Get some decent load on your website. Apache spawns a zillion processes and consumes all RAM. OOM.
15:17<@caker>rawrwx: for instance, if you configure Apache to idle at 10 processes, but then have MaxClients set to 150 -- as soon as it needs them it will balloon up - pushing into swap and ultimately bringing the box down
15:18<@caker>rawrwx: and that can be caused by web crawlers, a popular link, whatever
15:18<Guspaz>Doesn't MaxClients default to something stupidly high?
15:18<wrkq>It does.
15:18<@caker>Guspaz: in almost all distros, yes

15:41<rawb>so for an idiot who knows nothing about paravirtualization or what it does, should i stick with 2.6 stable or 2.6 paravirt?
15:42<Peng>Guspaz: But NTP is unnecessary on the non-paravirt kernels, unless you set a sysctl.
15:42<Guspaz>It's not necessary, but it's not useless. I've experienced annoying clock drift on non-paravirt kernels.
15:42-!-Guest2283 is now known as dcraig
15:42<Guspaz>Installing ntp is a good catchall for "making sure your clocks never drift".
15:42-!-gmcharlt [~gmcharlt@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
15:43<Peng>Guspaz: The hosts run ntpd, and without xen.independent_wallclock = 1, the non-pv domUs tie their clock to the host's.

15:43-!-dcraig is now known as Guest2287
15:43<Peng>Guspaz: Sure, occasionally the host's ntpd explodes, but that's just as likely to happen inside your node.
15:43<WoodWork>jed: Centos?
15:43<Guspaz>peng: There is no guarantee that any given VPS host's hardware runs ntp.
15:43<Peng>Guspaz: Linode does. You can ask your other VPS hosts.

15:51<Peng>And because I don't care. >.>
15:51<_Scott_>I never realized how accurate GPS was..
15:51<Guspaz>caker: The host decided to move all harware to another DC in a different city. Only, he never told us customers he was planning this. And didn't tell us when things went wrong. And when he eventually let us know what was going on, communication was incredibly sparse.
15:52<Guspaz>It was super frustrating.

15:53<Guspaz>If GPS wasn't stupidly accurate, it couldn't tell you where you were.
15:53<Peng>Nivex: Oh, neat. I wonder why they didn't leave the old IP up?
15:53<Guspaz>All GPS satellites do, IIRC, is broadcast what time they think it is, and GPS hardware uses the difference in time as heard from various satellites to calculate how far away they are, and hence your position.
15:54<_Scott_>I didn't think it was so accurate it would pinpoint where in my house I was.
15:54<Nivex>Peng: looks like they switched from GPS to CDMA
15:54<Smark>Anyone have a good resource for just computing videos in general? Not necessarily how-to's but like informational videos? Some of the Google I/O Keynote videos were good, as was one I just watched on x86 CPU architecture. Anyone have a favorite site (other than YouTube)?
15:54<Peng>Fun article about GPS:
15:55<Peng>_Scott_: Unless you have a really large mansion, your average GPS receiver won't be able to do that.
15:55<_Scott_>well blackberry managed to.
15:56<Peng>_Scott_: Now, a military receiver, or maybe an expensive civilian one...
15:56<_Scott_>Wheres My Phone Pro is the app I was testing lol
15:56<Peng>_Scott_: Probably using Assisted GPS.
15:56<_Scott_>It's pretty nice though.
15:56<_Scott_>I can email my blackberry if I loose it and it will reply with it's location.

16:37<MonkeyIsland>is it normal php-fastcgi gets around 5 mem?
16:38<_Scott_>i dun wanna reboot it =/
16:38<jeremiah_>MonkeyIsland: hard to say - it depends on what it is doing.
16:38<jeremiah_>MonkeyIsland: You should probably do some benchmarks yourself,
16:38<Element>so.. I'm thinking of wiping my 'disk' should I use 32bit or 64bit ?
16:38<jeremiah_>Test with a fresh reboot, see what the memory consumption is
16:39<Guspaz>5% of RAM on a 360 is 18MB, PHP's default max RAM per script is 16MB, so 18MB makes sense with overhead.
16:39<jeremiah_>Element: Are you going to run 64 bit apps only?
16:39<Element>I don't really *need* to but I was wondering if there was a performance increase or not?
16:40<MonkeyIsland>my linode is getting slow again to hung -.-

16:40<Guspaz>Not really.
16:40<officer>Hey folks
16:40<_Scott_>mysqld is probably being an idiot again :/
16:41<Guspaz>64-bit mode is almost never worth it unless you have multiple gigs of RAM.
16:41<Guspaz>Usually it just ends up making everything consume more RAM without really providing any other benefit.
16:41<jeremiah_>Well, yeah. There is no point other wise.
16:41<getsmart>mhh, like no more virtual memory? fork fails?
16:41<jeremiah_>I mean, the point is to have > 4 Gigs
16:41<officer>I'm going to be setting up a couple photo-upload blogs and was wondering if starting out with a VPS is a bit overkill?
16:42<getsmart>usually cen be a process that allocates memory dynamically, and not release (free syscall) it
16:42<getsmart>memory hog
16:42<jeremiah_>Honestly officer I just had one beer two hours ago.
16:42<officer>I don't expect traffic to be huge initially and I'm not the most knowledgeable about sysadmin stuff.
16:42<officer>hah jeremiah
16:42<getsmart>jeremiah_, so plenty of memory.
16:42<laser`>Guspaz: Even in those cases there are PAE kernels to provide more than 4GB RAM on 32-bit systems
16:42<getsmart>there is a ps flag that gives you memory size of a process
16:43<getsmart>so, *may be* you can identify the hog, and kill it
16:43<jeremiah_>oh, that is cool
16:43*jeremiah_ does a 'man ps'
16:43-!-Guest2287 is now known as dcraig
16:43<getsmart>let me see, may be I remember such a flag
16:43<Guspaz>laser`: PAE is rarely usable.
16:43<jeremiah_>v display virtual memory format
16:43<jeremiah_>Is that it perchance?
16:44-!-dcraig is now known as Guest2292
16:44<Guspaz>laser`: Virtually all 32-bit systems and even many 64-bit systems from around the transition period shipped with memory controllers that couldn't address more than 32-bit of RAM regardless of PAE/CPU.
16:44<jeremiah_>Looks like it is
16:44<Guspaz>My laptop, for example, a Core 2 Duo. I run a 64-bit OS on it. That OS can see 3.3GB of RAM out of 4.
16:44<jeremiah_>officer: A VPS _may_ be overkill, but it gives you room to grow and the price is right. :)
16:44<laser`>Oh heh, that's awesome :P
16:45<getsmart>may be find it: ps -eal| less
16:45-!-rawrwx [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
16:45<laser`>PAE's pretty usable on modern systems though, surely?
16:45<Guspaz>I mean desktop-oriented systems. Server chipsets probably shipped with less crappy memory controllers.
16:45<getsmart>just look for 'SZ' field jeremiah_
16:45<Guspaz>Well, I don't know. I've never tried PAE because I have 12GB of RAM on my desktop and just run a 64-bit OS.
16:45<jeremiah_>getsmart: okay
16:46<getsmart>it should be something better
16:46<laser`>I only run a 64-bit OS because I use Windows and MS doesn't deem their consumer OSs fit to ship the Windows PAE kernel with
16:46<Guspaz>pparadis... spokesman? What's the world coming to.
16:46<getsmart>another idea: top, %MEM
16:47<MonkeyIsland>jeremiah_: how to find out what is consuming my mem?
16:47<getsmart>now I remind: if get samples of process SIZE ps field, let say, every 5 minutes, you can follow the memory trend
16:47<jeremiah_>MonkeyIsland: Did you try 'top' and then press 'M'?
16:48<jeremiah_>That will sort the processes by memory usage
16:48<getsmart>so, if a process has a augment trend SZ bigger in the more recent samples
16:48<getsmart>that's the hog
16:48<jeremiah_>So the one that uses the most will be at the top
16:48<getsmart>yeah, but on top you have just a snapshot
16:48<getsmart>you need the trend, say, in 20/30 minutes
16:48<getsmart>so like 4/7 samples
16:48<getsmart>at least
16:48<getsmart>or more
16:49<getsmart>it depends
16:49<getsmart>hope make it clear
16:49<jeremiah_>Well, using 'top' and 'M' is a good start.
16:49<MonkeyIsland>jeremiah_: always php-fastcgi with 5.0, 5.1, 5.2, and mysql around 7.1
16:49<jeremiah_>MonkeyIsland: That is not that bad.
16:50<jeremiah_>What are your load averages?
16:50<MonkeyIsland>which one is load?
16:50<getsmart>sz SZ size in physical pages of the core image of the process. This includes text, data, and stack space. Device mappings are currently excluded

16:53<mwalling>you also issued a reboot, which probably didnt help matters
16:53<brandl>hi all, going to sign up for a linode account and was wondering if there were any promo codes the company is sharing right now?
16:53<mwalling>brandl: nope
16:53<getsmart>better way : a shel script like : ps el > /tmp/results; sleep 3600*5;
16:54<@tasaro>brandl: just the prepayment discounts which do not require a code
16:54<brandl>mwalling okay thanks
16:54<getsmart>you can write much good then this, just the idea

17:04<adalric>hey all, wanting to put my database on a separate linode, do i need to keep that server at the same datacenter to use the private ips?
17:04<adalric>cool thanks _Scott_
17:05<adalric>and the other question, is it worth it to have an additional IP address for the production and database servers?
17:06<_Scott_>Do you need more than 1 IP?
17:06<jeremiah_>It is kinda good if you are going to pass a lot of traffic between nodes
17:06<jeremiah_>Because it goes on the private network and so is faster and doesn't count against your quota

17:07<jeremiah_>adalric: Do you have two nodes on linode?
17:07<jeremiah_>That you control?
17:07<adalric>Yeah at the same datacenter
17:07<jeremiah_>Because if you do, then the two private IPs are the way to go
17:07<jeremiah_>Yeah, do it.
17:08<jeremiah_>One of the cool features of Linode I think is the private ip
17:08<adalric>yeah that was one reason i chose them
17:08<jeremiah_>Me too. :)
17:09<adalric>okay so i don't need to worry about the extra public IP address
17:10<jeremiah_>adalric: I really doubt it, it will be some thing like
17:10<jeremiah_>That is a local adress space
17:10<jeremiah_>So I can almost guarantee that no one wil be able to see that from the outside
17:11<jeremiah_>I think they have some kind of article on this in their library
17:11<adalric>yeah just saw it
17:11<jeremiah_>ah, okay
17:11<adalric>looks like i'll need to go the static route

18:10<Peng>njs: Which version?
18:10<WoodWork>You'll have a lot, lot better performance on xen, and the staff do all the work for you. Nothing is required from you - apart from a support ticket.
18:11<Peng>njs: 9.10's udev requires a newer kernel than you can get on UML, fyi.
18:11<WoodWork>Guess.. around 10 - 15 times better IO.
18:12<Peng>More recent hosts have better hardware, too.
18:12<WoodWork>You'll need to change the kernels AFAIK, and boot back up - and you're good to go.
18:13<Peng>And you get access to 4 CPU cores on Xen.
18:13<Peng>And you get access to modern kernels, if you want.

20:42<Arimoto>Do I just select the "deploy a distribution" option or do I need to delete the disk images for the old OS?

20:43<HoopyCat>Arimoto: you can also resize the old image down and make room for the new one, if you want to keep it around for any reason
20:43<pardom>is apt-get usually more up to date than yum? that's what I'm reading
20:43<Arimoto>HoopyCat: won't be doing that, but good to know in general.
20:44<bob2>question's a bit silly
20:44<bob2>ubuntu and debian tend to have faster release cycles than rhel, though
20:44<bob2>(and include far far more software)
20:44<Arimoto>HoopyCat: so I guess that means that a Linode can have two configuration profiles as well?
20:44<pardom>a bit silly how?
20:45<bob2>because apt-get and yum are just package installation tools
20:45<bob2>used by multiple distributions
20:45<pardom>i know
20:45<bob2>also apt was ported to work with rpm

20:48<HoopyCat>Arimoto: only one can run at a time, of course, but that's fine as i was using it as a bit of a save-game function while trying to avoid turning something into spaghetti :-)
20:49<pardom>radiant cms won't work for me cause of 1.8.6

20:50<HoopyCat>Arimoto: the duplicate image button may be your friend :-)
20:51<rmayorga>can i haz one imaginary free linod?
20:51<Arimoto>HoopyCat: ooooooo duplicate image!
20:51<pardom>so the recommendation is ubuntu 8.04 LTS 64bit?
20:51<Arimoto>pardom: why not Ubuntu 9.10?
20:52<_Scott_>I use the latest 32 bit.
20:52<pardom>bob2: if you're going to use ubuntu, use lts
20:53<bob2>why would you use the amd64 port on a machine with 360MB of ram ;)
20:53<bob2>(you might have a reason, but I don't think it'd be a good default)
20:53<Arimoto>Interesting that Fedora 11 isn't on the distro list
20:53<Arimoto>*I meant 10
20:54<pardom>bob2: no reason... i'm here for help
20:54-!-Tobarja [] has joined #linode
20:54<_Scott_>would anyone advise against rsyncing the entire file system?
20:54<pardom>bob2 why use 8.04 LTS over 9.10?
20:54<bob2>don't rsync /proc or /sys or /dev
20:54<bd_>_Scott_: mount --bind / /mnt and rsync /mnt, that way you don't pick up virtual filesystem mounts
20:54<bob2>pardom: do you want to have to upgrade in 18 months?
20:55<HoopyCat>pardom: see
20:55<_Scott_>10.04 will be out in a few months
20:55<bob2>also lts means less bling, ideally
20:55<_Scott_>so i don't see why you shouldn't use 9.10.
20:55<_Scott_>10.10 will be LTS right?
20:55<bob2>not sure it's been set in stone
20:56<pardom>ahh.. so tl/dr version: 2 year support vs 6 month support
20:56<BarkerJr>_Scott_, I usually just rsync /etc, /home, /root, /usr, /var, and any other directories I created
20:57<HoopyCat>_Scott_: 10.04 will be LTS, but 9.10 is not, and it is currently january 2010
20:57<HoopyCat>pardom: 5-year support vs. 1.5-year support
20:57<pardom>okay... i'm sold
20:57<_Scott_>right so why shouldnt he just use 9.04 since he will be upgrading in in the near future to 10.04?
20:58<pardom>however, i've only had centos for a year and i'm "upgrading" to ubuntu ;)
20:58<BarkerJr>y'all should just use centos... it's so old, it'll never go out of style
20:58<_Scott_>i hate rhel
20:58<HoopyCat>_Scott_: if 10.04 turns out to be contraindicated in his configuration, and/or there's no compelling reason to upgrade, it'll save a buttload of work

20:59<Arimoto>I get ansi and want to reinstall stuff every year or so, I think it comes from using Windows as a child

21:00<BarkerJr>I want a centos 5.4 image in linode

23:41<mikegrb>! people still use slackware?!?!
23:41<sorressean>um, I just deployed a slackware distro. I was going to rsync the packages as it doesn't seem to have slackpkg, but there aren't any compilers for me to build with. how do I at least get a compiler going?

23:55<mikegrb>! people still use slackware?!?!
23:55<HedgeMage>mikegrb: don't knock slackware! It was my first distro some 15+ years ago, and it wants you to get off its lawn :P
23:56<HedgeMage>@#$% him and his autoresponder nonsense :P
23:56<sorressean>o. did he provide any useful info? I've got mikegrb on ignore because of that retarded lolz script thing.
23:57<HedgeMage>sorressean: no, no useful info. Just a Slackware-triggered autoresponse I didn't realize was auto at first
23:57<HedgeMage>I'm on the edge of /ignore-ing him myself.
23:57<sorressean>o. what a fag.
