00:00<dcraig>woohoo, I love when the point is in the unit circle
00:03<encode>Ankit: to avoid the annoying case where people feel compelled to type "first post" or some similar variant, when chanlog rotates the log files
00:05<bob2>also sometimes it is because people you have on /ignore trigger it
00:07<Ankit>ah, didn't know it was linked to VS_ChanLog

00:13-!-DrJ [] has joined #linode
00:13<DrJ>what is linode's "grace" period for payments
00:14<bob2>ime few days, file a ticket to discuss beyond that
00:14<bob2>in my experience
00:15-!-asedeno [] has joined #linode
00:15-!-Dwayne [] has quit [Quit: CGI:IRC]
00:16-!-newnick [] has joined #linode
00:17<@Praefectus>DrJ: suspended on the 10th, deleted on the 20th, you can put a ticket in if you need a few more days though
00:17-!-MTecknology [] has joined #linode
00:17<DrJ>I -might- need 3 days
00:17<MTecknology>k peeps- can we generate a little more often than ever 15min~?
00:17<@Praefectus>DrJ: jus put in a ticket if you do
00:18<MTecknology>taking longer than 1min is just unasseptible
00:18<Ankit>udderly unasseptible, I agree
00:18*Praefectus changes generation to 16 minutes
00:19<Ankit>generate what, anyway?
00:19<DrJ>Praefectus: if you put in a ticket do they make it so your not charged till then?
00:19*Praefectus has no clue
00:20<@Praefectus>DrJ: check pm
00:20<MTecknology>Ankit: dns
00:20-!-czr [] has joined #linode
00:21<MTecknology>Praefectus: I'm not serious- 15min is pretty good
00:22<@Praefectus>i know
00:22*Praefectus was serious about changing it to 16 minutes though
00:22-!-Liru [] has joined #linode
00:23<MTecknology>err... Ankit*
00:23<MTecknology>Praefectus: what would that change?
00:23<Ankit>it would blow your mind
00:23<Liru>Was there a major change in the way nginx is configured since it became v1.0.0?
00:23<Ankit>Liru the test page looks more like Apache's now :P
00:23<MTecknology>Liru: no
00:24<MTecknology>Liru: approximately two bugs resolved
00:24<Liru>Then I must be doing something very wrong since I can't seem to get multiple domains running on one node
00:24<MTecknology>1.0.3 just out today
00:24<Ankit>do linodes run on 1gbit pipes?
00:24<Liru>Anything in the default directory works normally
00:25-!-gadams [] has joined #linode
00:25<Liru>Anything outside of it, say /home/liru/www/<site>/, gives a 403 when trying to access it
00:25-!-sm [] has quit [Quit: sm]
00:25<MTecknology>Liru: pastebin your config
00:26-!-Corren [] has quit [Quit: Computer has gone to sleep.]
00:26<Liru>So I'm probably doing something stupid if not much changed
00:26<bob2>Ankit: believe so, but you're capped at 50mbit/s in one direction
00:26<Ankit>I'm pretty dumb/useless at this kind of thing but have you given /<site>/ the right chmod?
00:26<Ankit>bob2: got it
00:28-!-mathew [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:30<MTecknology>Liru: what isn't working?
00:30<Liru>Ankit: Just to test, I gave it 777
00:30<MTecknology>never ever use 777
00:30<MTecknology>Liru: ah... i bet i know
00:30<Liru>MTecknology: Attempting to access (not actually registered yet) gives a 403
00:31<Liru>And I also tried 744
00:31<MTecknology>Liru: line #1
00:31<Liru>And 755
00:31-!-nuclear [] has joined #linode
00:31<Liru>Yes? What of it?
00:31<Liru>I made an nginx user.
00:31<MTecknology>chown -R nginx:nginx /home/aoi/www/
00:32<Ankit>chmod, chown, I was on the right path :v
00:32<MTecknology>and make sure the nginx user can read /home/aoi/www too
00:33-!-newnick [] has quit [Quit: CGI:IRC (Ping timeout)]
00:34-!-nuclear- [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:36<MTecknology>what's funny... I don't even have irssi installed on the server I'm using irssi on
00:36<Liru>Still nothing.
00:36<Liru> is that possible?
00:36<MTecknology>and you checked your logs?
00:38<Liru>"/home/aoi/www/" is forbidden (13: Permission denied), client: <my IP>, server:, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", host: ""
00:39<MTecknology>su - nginx
00:39<MTecknology>cd /home/aoi/www/
00:39<MTecknology>it won't work
00:39<MTecknology>make it work
00:41-!-lakin [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:41<bob2>what on earth
00:41-!-nenolod [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]

00:45-!-Eman [] has quit [Quit: no]
00:45<Ankit>use /home/aoi
00:45<Ankit>not /home/nginx
00:45-!-Dreamer3 [] has joined #linode
00:45-!-Eman [] has joined #linode
00:45<MTecknology>Liru: I think you need a Linux primer session (no offense intended)
00:46<Liru>What, because I'm logged in as root?
00:46-!-andrew_ [~andrew@] has joined #linode
00:46<checkers>because you don't know how to fix a relatively trivial problem
00:46<Liru>Yeah, that too.
00:46-!-Edgeman [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:47<echoline>fighting makes baby jesus cry :'(
00:47<checkers>you need to give the nginx user permission to access the file mentioned in the error log line
00:47-!-Edgeman [] has joined #linode
00:47<checkers>echoline: crying makes baby fighting jesus
00:47-!-JoshMargulis [] has joined #linode
00:48<Liru>I'm going to try wiping and restarting. Maybe it will go better if I have to go from scratch again.
00:48-!-lunks [~lunks@] has quit [Quit: lunks]
00:48-!-eekTheCat [] has joined #linode
00:48<MTecknology>any ideas how I could sync all of my gmail data (contacts/email/folders) to another gmail account?
00:49<MTecknology>are contacts stored that way?
00:50<checkers>I don't think so, but there's a big 'export' button in the UI IIRC
00:50<checkers>you'll also want to handle filters in the same way
00:50<MTecknology>seems like there's some issues with the ubuntu repos and i can't install anything :(
00:50<MTecknology>no need for filters anymore
00:51<MTecknology>i'm moving away forever and ever
00:51-!-Dreamer3_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:51<Ankit>contacts in gmail are super easy to import/export
00:51<MTecknology>apparently so
00:52<MTecknology>last i heard it was a highly requested feature :P
00:52<bob2>protip: if you're doing 'su - nginx' you are likely on the wrong path
00:52-!-andrew [~andrew@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:52<Liru>Yeah, thought as much.

01:04-!-Newb [] has joined #linode
01:05<Newb>i installed railda django on ubuntu and get apache to run the .py or. rb files or even rhtl
01:06<echoline>Newb: i see i see
01:06<bob2>php is speshul
01:06<bob2>no other language works like that
01:07<Newb>unable to get apache to run .py or .rhtml or .rb files
01:07<@mikegrb>! people still use slackware?!?!
01:07<echoline>there are no stack scripts for slackware? :(
01:07<bob2>Newb: that's fine
01:07<echoline>mikegrb: i am leaning towards it for this, yes
01:07-!-Bali140 [] has joined #linode
01:07<bob2>Newb: django:
01:08<bob2>Newb: rails:
01:08-!-Gundam14 [] has joined #linode
01:08-!-BBHoss [] has joined #linode
01:08<Newb>i followed those instructions to the letter, but still no luck :(
01:08-!-gadams [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:08<Newb>have rebuilt the server 3 times even
01:09<Newb>php and htm files r fine
01:09<bob2>Newb: you don't need to rebuild the server even once
01:09<Newb>but py and rb, no luck
01:09<bob2>Newb: but again: no language works like php except php
01:09<Newb>true that
01:09<bob2>Newb: for rails and django, you configure apache for the application
01:09<bob2>Newb: you don't just throw random .py and .rb files on disk
01:10<Newb>i did configure apache according to the instructions
01:10<rnowak> \o/
01:10<Newb>r there and lines i should add in apache
01:10<Newb>so whats the missing step
01:11<bob2>the missing step is configuring things correctly for each app
01:11<Newb>to configuring apache for py and rb
01:11<bob2>stop it, please
01:11-!-bixgomez [] has joined #linode
01:11<Newb>i don't see anything in the docs for that step
01:11<bob2>you're not configuring apache to run .rb and .py files on disk
01:12<bob2>so, please stop suggesting that
01:12<Newb>i'm trying to execute them via the browser
01:12<Newb>but the browser offers to download them

01:12-!-tempesta [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:13<bob2>Newb: stop
01:13<bob2>Newb: you need to set the correct WSGIScriptAlias line
01:13<bob2>Newb: have you done that?
01:13<echoline>Newb: don't listen to these nerd bullies
01:13<Newb>yes, but when i do that, nothing works
01:14<bob2>Newb: your apache config file
01:14<rnowak>it will be a bit problematic for him if he doesn't have applications as wsgi wants them but just random py files
01:14<bob2>he/she mentioned django explicitly
01:15<linbot>Heck, man, what do I look like, a psëudøviking?
01:15<rnowak>bob2: oh, missed that part
01:15<bob2>but good point
01:15<bob2>Newb: you have a django app you're trying to run?
01:15<Newb>i'm trying to learn django w a test app
01:16<bob2>Newb: the app works on your desktop?
01:16<echoline>heckman: !!
01:16*echoline hugs
01:16-!-bixgomez_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:16<Newb>haven't got that far :)
01:16<bob2>do that bit first
01:16<bob2>no need to use apache for development
01:17<@heckman>How goes it echoline ?
01:17-!-synapt [] has joined #linode
01:17<echoline>heckman: good good, you?
01:17<Newb>whats easiest way to use it local, any local stack you'd recommend
01:17<echoline>heckman: got a linode today :)
01:17<bob2>Newb: none
01:18<bob2>Newb: django comes with a toy web server for development
01:18<@heckman>Pretty good. Working on some BASH script stuff for my IPv6 tunnel (in between tickets). Sweet, what distro you'd go with?
01:18<Newb>i'm on mac osx 10.4 tiger
01:19<Newb>i think ur idea is best, learn it locally

01:20<echoline>heckman: haven't even decided yet, but i am leaning towards slackware for ol' time's sake
01:20-!-tempesta [] has joined #linode
01:20<@heckman>Haha. I didn't know people still use slackware
01:20<echoline>heckman: yeah, been getting that :P
01:21<echoline>heckman: i am glad you offer it though
01:21<echoline>heckman: and, i haven't used it since slackware 11 or so
01:21<Newb>how about rails
01:21<@heckman>Seems Ubuntu has broken 50% for Linode.
01:21<echoline>for trains?
01:21<@heckman>57% of deployments are Ubuntu
01:22<Newb>.rb, .rhtml files not executing in browser
01:22<echoline>heckman: doesn't surprise me at all
01:22<k00pa>I dont get ubuntu on servers, why not just use debian instead?
01:22-!-warren_ [] has joined #linode
01:22<rnowak>I hereby declare today, the 26th of May, a Debian Appreciation Day! ... like any other day!
01:22<echoline>k00pa: ubuntu is what most linux users start with these days
01:23<echoline>rnowak: gnutard <3
01:23<k00pa>yeaah, but its just debian with better ui and stuff
01:23<k00pa>what advantages it has over debian on server side?
01:23<rnowak>"better ui and stuff"
01:23*rnowak facedesk
01:23<@heckman>k00pa: I mean, I'm not sure if it's a benefit but the packages are fresher.
01:23*heckman also has had Ubuntu eat itself on a few occasions
01:23<k00pa>hmm ye that
01:24<k00pa>but stability is more important imo
01:24<echoline>on a server... perhaps ;)
01:24<rnowak>I'd like stability on my workstation as well :p
01:24<@heckman>I use Ubuntu on my PCs at home just because the packages are newer. Server-stuff I try to stay with Debian. If I need a newer kernel (like I did on my IPv6 gateway project) I just backport.
01:24<k00pa>isn't that what we are talking about? :P
01:24<k00pa>well yeah on normal comp I use kubuntu
01:25<@heckman>I'm sticking with Gnome Panel for now.
01:25<rnowak>F*** YEAH UBUNTU UNITY!
01:25<@heckman>no mohawk
01:25<rnowak>heckman: come on, it brings me a lot of joy reading the ubuntu forums with people crying about it.
01:25-!-lakin [] has joined #linode
01:26<@heckman>rnowak: It's easy to turn off, just change your session at the GDM
01:26<rnowak>schadenfreude best freude
01:26<praetorian>hmm msn just died
01:26<echoline>rnowak: what's that
01:26<rnowak>heckman: it is indeed, and I told you that a few weeks ago ;p
01:26<@heckman>I know
01:27<rnowak>echoline: what is what?
01:27<@heckman>I installed 11.04 on my new netbook. Had some issues installing some software, but I appear to have got it all up and running.
01:27<@heckman>Needed a kernel patch tho
01:27<echoline>rnowak: i don't have a browser man
01:27<rnowak>then install one?
01:27<echoline>there is no decent one
01:27<rnowak>links2 superior browser #1
01:28-!-dvdm_ [] has joined #linode
01:28<echoline>links2 won't run on this bucket of bolts
01:28<echoline>too many dependencies!
01:28<rnowak>Either way, schadenfreude is a german word used as a loanword in english, and it means pleasure derived from the misfortune of others.
01:28*praetorian sings schadenfreude
01:28<echoline>let's see

01:29<rnowak>echoline: only particular misfortunes bring me schadenfreude though
01:29<echoline>football into nads?
01:30<rnowak>heckman: was it the netbook you wanted to initially install arch on?
01:30<@heckman>The one that's running Debian (now) was the one I had selected to run Arch.
01:31<@heckman>Arch stopped IPv6ing...I got frustrated and just used a stable distro
01:31<rnowak>Debian prevails yet again \o/
01:31<rnowak>How did you express your appreciation?
01:31<@heckman>echoline: no
01:31<@heckman>rnowak: by accouning in here that it was once again Debian appreciation day
01:31<@heckman>echoline: no candy
01:34<@heckman>MSN is back
01:35-!-dvdm [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:36<@heckman>Not really. I only use it to communicate with like... two people
01:37<@heckman>Primary methods of communication are XMPP (GTalk) or AIM
01:37<echoline>aim!? :O
01:37<echoline>but WHY
01:38<@heckman>I mean, if people are going to use AIM for their instant message communications I would kind of need to use it as well to communicate with them.
01:38<@heckman>Kind of like if I want to communicate with people in #linode on OFTC...I need to be in #linode on OFTC.

02:48<bob2>if you didn't actually bring someone to linode, don't be lame and try to get credit for it

02:49<@heckman>dr_jkl: normally placing ones own referral code in here is...frowned upon
02:49<marius>In al honesty, I sort of got one that way
02:49<dr_jkl>heckman: so ban me? i really don't care
02:49<marius>he joined here and was so amazed by my name (true story) he asked me for my referral code because the service had to be awesome if it had a Marius here
02:49*heckman doesn't swing the banhammer often
02:49*heckman personally doesn't care.
02:49<@heckman>I was just letting you know as some others do. :D
02:50<dr_jkl>linode's referral system makes it almost invisible to people that they're signing up with a referral code; i've missed out on three referrals so far because people i've referred 'weren't sure' if they were using the code properly or not.
02:50<pizzas>dr jekl has a spell on me....
02:50<dr_jkl>it has no actual place in signup for a 'referral code'. just a 'promotion code' box.
02:50<bob2>they visit the url you give them
02:50<marius>Granted he thought I used this nickname because of Marius from Les Mis, not because it was my name xD (But I do love Les Mis)
02:51<dr_jkl>bob2: but even that url doesn't make it obvious that a code is being used
02:51<marius>Worst case they could just open up a ticket and let'em know the yhad troubles applying the referral

02:51<pizzas>Les Mis is the best
02:51<@heckman>dr_jkl: at the bottom:
02:52<dr_jkl>heckman: that's new. kudos to linode for Doing It Right.
02:52<marius>How is that new
02:52<@heckman>Also, if something comes up where someone isn't sure they used your referral code, or forgot, simply have them open a ticket and we'll happily add the refferal.
02:52<marius>that's been there for as long as I've used linode I think
02:53<marius>any way :P
02:53<dr_jkl>there only used to be a promotion code.
02:53<dr_jkl>but whatever.
02:53<dr_jkl>i don't really give a shit; i pay linode just the same as any of you. :P
02:53<@heckman>In Southern New Jersey, Linode pays me!
02:54<@heckman>(horrible play on a Russian reverse joke)
02:54<marius>I think my UK link really is booched, I'm having a hard time maintaining ssh to it and loadign pages is slow as hell :s
02:54<pizzas>real question. I have been trying to get apache solr to work. I follow the tutorials and get nowhere. Is there something special about linode or is it just me who can not follow directions?
02:55<wjwoodward>@heckman: Seems as though you work for Linode or are a part of the company, are there any promotions at the moment?

03:08<wjwoodward>What is the difference between Ubuntu LTS and plain Ubuntu?
03:09<chesty>long term support
03:09<rnowak>LTS = Less Terrible Shit
03:09<chesty>will have package updates for 5 years
03:10<wjwoodward>so its better if you don't want to upgrade it through major releases, ie v10 to v11?
03:10-!-JSharp [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:11<bob2>also in practice they seem a bit more stable
03:11<bob2>because no one wants to maintain stuff they think may be dodgy for five years
03:11<dr_jkl>debian > 'buntu
03:12<chesty>every 2 or 3 years they release another lts, and lts to lts upgrades are supported
03:12<dr_jkl>ubuntu is too bleeding edge
03:12<dr_jkl>debian is stable
03:12<wjwoodward>that's what i've heard dr_jkl
03:13<dr_jkl>if you like the old text-based games like SUSPENDED, use gentoo. gentoo is like the ultimate text-based video game. if you win, you get to use the internet.
03:13<wjwoodward>ubuntu 10.04 LTS is the distribution that is automatically selected when you sign up
03:13<dr_jkl>speaking of text-based video games, i have to go punt my freebsd server. brb
03:14<wjwoodward>i have heard ubuntu is easier for newbs, which I am. what are your thoughts on this? @heckman what do you recommend?
03:14-!-narcan [] has joined #linode
03:14<@heckman>For newbs I recommend Ubuntu. Better community for assistance.
03:15<rnowak>wrt difficulty, you will unlikely notice a difference between ubuntu and debian
03:15*rnowak slaps heckman with a bat
03:15<dr_jkl>wjwoodward: if you can breathe on your own you can use debian
03:15<bob2>debian and ubuntu lts are pretty close in basically all these things
03:15<@heckman>I personally choose Debian systems for my stuff because I don't like the non-sense Ubuntu has sometimes.
03:15<chesty>don't listen to them, they get a sign up bonus for everyone they refer debian to
03:15<@heckman>They are pretty close, but there are plenty of Ubuntuisms.
03:15<bob2>real reason I use debian on servers is that I'm too old to learn things like upstart
03:15<rnowak>any guide you find for either will likely work on the other, with potential minor differences

03:32<Fox`>the source file providing side has given me full permission to distribute their work
03:33<purrdeta>If someone does complain about you, I hear Linode will open a ticket with you and try to contact you before simply giving you the banhammer
03:33<narcan>hmm ok, wiki says 10.10 is supported until april 2012. so won't that mean 11.04 if installed today will have support for longer ?

05:15<heyman>hi! I have a question about the largest linode plans.. how many other customers do you share the host with for the 8, 12, 16 and 20 GB plans? and how many CPU cores can you utilize on theses plans? is it 4 like the smaller linode plans?
05:16<wjwoodward>heyman: it ismentioned in the faq -
05:17<wjwoodward>How many Linodes share a host?
05:17<wjwoodward>Linodes of the same plan are grouped together onto a host. We adjust the number of slots on each host according to its resources and hardware specification. On average, a Linode 512 host has 40 Linodes on it. A Linode 768 host has on average 30. Linode 1024 host: 20 Linodes; Linode 1536 host: 15; Linode 2048 host: 10; Linode 4096: 5.

05:19<@heckman>There's no solid number.
05:21<JustinH>@wjwoodward Nginx was written to address the C10K problem
05:21<heyman>heckman: ok, so is there no way for me to know how many I will share the hsot with if I want to hire four 20GB plans? or how many cores I could utilize in the optimal vs the worst case scenario?
05:21<@heckman>Each Linode plan gets access to four cores
05:22<@heckman>Regardless of the size. And there is no solid number. As you see the number of Linodes on a host decreases as they get larger. And the number depends on a few things.
05:23<heyman>heckman: ok, so what is the maximum number of customers I could share a 20GB host with? (how much ram is there in the largest hosts?)
05:23<heyman>judging from the other numbers (if it scales linear), it seems that I would have a 20GB host for myself

05:24<@heckman>Unfortunately, detailed hardware specs is not something I have available.
05:25<@heckman>You're never alone on a host, however.
05:26<heyman>heckman: ok, that's unfortunate.. we're going to need a couple of large servers (12GB+) and it would be really useful to know these kind of specs when deciding on a provider
05:27-!-Tidemann [~Kasper@] has quit [Quit: Standby...]
05:27<@heckman>heyman: Here's the quick rundown. The hosts have 8 cores. You share those eight cores with other customers on the host.
05:27<@heckman>Each Linode has access to four of those cores at one time.

05:28<rnowak>oh god, endless loop
05:28<@heckman>Kirby? (>^_^)>
05:29<@ericoc>you're able to find the CPU specs with 'cat /proc/cpuinfo'

05:36<sheldon>Not sure why - I just scp'd my files from my old Slicehost slice to a new Linode, and booted up the apache2 server
05:36<bob2>back up
05:36<sheldon>It's happening just for .css and .js files it appears
05:36<bob2>what actual thing did ytou do and what did you see?
05:37<sheldon>Loading up a PHP app hosted with Apache2, saw the page without any CSS on it
05:37<sheldon>inspected the request for the CSS files after noticing an HTTP 416 error, which I've never seen before
05:38<sheldon>found a 'range' header specifying a fairly random value of 326-326
05:38<heyman>heckman: yeah, the CPU will probably not be the bottleneck, but it's just that I (and probably many others in my position) would feel much more comfortable making a decision with all info available.. thanks for the info and fast response though! :)

06:06<amitz>my linode doesn't behave that way.
06:07<JoFe>xt3mp0r: Are you using dhcp? Default setting is for dhcp to set the hostname (leasetime about 24 hours i belive) when it gets renewed

06:11<StevenJackson>hi there...
06:11<StevenJackson>question about Rewrite Rules...
06:11<StevenJackson>Before the script an receive an HTTP-POST here ==> http://myurl/resources/ Now the script it's moved there ==> http://newurl/resources/ It's possibile to make an Apache Rewrite that take in charge the HTTP-POST on "http://myurl/resources/" and Rewrite in "http://newurl/resources/"
06:11<@Praefectus>Redirect /resources http://newurl/resources
06:12<StevenJackson>uh? so easy?
06:12<StevenJackson>also for http-post?
06:16<JoFe>xt3mp0r: Well, if you have restarted dhcpcd there shouldn't be anything that (normally) sets the hostname, so no idea what could change it
06:17<StevenJackson>no it's look no so easy... :-(
06:17<xt3mp0r>JoFe: hmm, i have setup hostname again. let's see if this happen again.
06:18-!-JoshMargulis [] has joined #linode
06:20<@heckman>Did you restart DHCPCD after making the change/
06:20<JoFe>xt3mp0r: Only things that usually sets hostname is the bootprocess (from /etc/hostname or similar) and dhcp. I'm guessing it goes back to the normal dhcp-generated hostname
06:20<xt3mp0r>heckman: no, i just commented out a line from config.
06:20<@heckman>xt3mp0r: you need to actually restart the daemon
06:20<@heckman>Otherwise when the lease expires, and it grabs the IP again, the hostname will reset
06:21<xt3mp0r>heckman: hmm, i am new to all this. i should execute /etc/init.d/dhcpcd restart
06:21<xt3mp0r>right ?
06:21<@heckman>xt3mp0r: that looks about right
06:22<xt3mp0r>heckman: -bash: /etc/init.d/dhcpcd: No such file or directory

06:40<@heckman>ah good point. I didn't think about that in my update. Sorry.
06:40<Tiven_>anyway, i tried to apt update it gave error and said to run dpkg configure -a
06:40<@heckman>dpkg-reconfigure -a
06:41<Tiven_>so i run it, nothing happened, i control+c again and it asked me the last thing about securetty that got stuck :)
06:41<@heckman>How long did you let it sit?
06:41<Tiven_>long time
06:41<Tiven_>it was like it was waiting for variables
06:41<@heckman>It can take a few minutes to run as it has to reconfigure all packages installed on the system.
06:41<@heckman>It's quite possible the OS is completely hosed and you need to redeploy.
06:43<Tiven_>i did reconfigure again and now its doing some stuff
06:43<Tiven_>since in finnix it keeps complaining about /dev/null i guess thats not a problem right?
06:44<@heckman>What error are you getting?
06:46<Tiven_>that it cannot create dev null
06:46<Tiven_>now, dpkg: too many errors, stopping
06:46<Tiven_>and it gives me a list with packages

10:25<Tiven_>and then i manually removed apache, lighttpd, reinstalled nginx now and everything seems to be working fine
10:26<akerl>hersoy: I'm trying to understand. Do you want to get the rdns *back* to li***.members.linode, or to remove the rdns entirely, or to replace the li*** with something else, i.e. your own domain?

10:30<priyesh>when you first get a linode, are they assined a static IP?
10:30<@caker>they're always assigned a static ip
10:30<priyesh>so it'll never change? is there any need to set a static ip in the OS?
10:31<akerl>priyesh: You get one IP, which your node is configured to grab via dhcp.
10:31<priyesh>okay - makes sense
10:32<hersoy>akerl: I want to get the rdns *back* to li***
10:32<priyesh>would you recommend setting that IP in the /etc/network/interfaces ?
10:32<priyesh>also is a private IP automatically assigned, or you have to request one?
10:32<akerl>hersoy: For what purpose? I imagine you could do it, but I'm not sure where you'd find the correct id
10:33<akerl>priyesh: You can get a private IP automatically via the manager.
10:33<akerl>To use the private IP, you need to statically configure it
10:33<@heckman>hersoy: For that you'd need to open a ticket.

10:36<heylookanoob>hey all... question if anyone has a minute to help out a noob with what i think should be a basic issue
10:36<heylookanoob>i'm just getting started with my first vps... longtime shared hosting user...
10:37<heylookanoob>i set up a LAMP server and it's working fine except for getting additional domains to work beyond the default. see:
10:37<heylookanoob>error logs are indicating that access to files is being blocked by server configuration but i can't find the setting to change
10:38<priyesh>heylookanoob: could you do a 'ls -la' of the webserver directory

10:41<Yaakov>heylookanoob: Also, make one change at a time, and undo the changes if they don't fix things.
10:42<heylookanoob>so my assumption has been that the issue had to do with AllowOverride but i've changed that to All in the virtual host config
10:42<heylookanoob>no change
10:42<priyesh>heylookanoob: could you do a ls -la of the place where index.html is on the node
10:42<heylookanoob>and i'm not sure what else to do at this point... permissions on the public_html dir look fine
10:42<heylookanoob>yes one sec

10:43<priyesh>also, is this problem just affecting your virtual hosts?
10:43<heylookanoob>yep. the default domain works
10:44<priyesh>could you also paste your virtual host config ?
10:44<heylookanoob>will do. just posted the ls -la
10:45<priyesh>heylookanoob: could you do the following
10:45<heylookanoob>pasted config
10:45<priyesh>$ chown www-data index.html
10:46<heylookanoob>did the chown, no change
10:46<priyesh>how about:
10:46<heylookanoob>fwiw here's the default domain - it's just a new drupal install...
10:47<priyesh>so it shows as this now: -rwxr-xr-x 1 www-data root 7 2011-05-26 10:27 index.html
10:48<heylookanoob>yep that's what it shows now
10:48<priyesh>heylookanoob: do you know what user the webserver is running as?
10:49<priyesh>heylookanoob: is it www-data?
10:49<heylookanoob>i don't know... how do i find out
10:49<atula>hello. if I want a server to run a few small blogs (django) which node would be sufficient ? I currently have 512 which is a bit small I think
10:49<priyesh>heylookanoob: apache?
10:50<JshWright>I run several moderately heavy dnajo apps on a 512

10:50<JshWright>(on top of a few wordpress sites, a few static sites, MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc)
10:50<priyesh>atula: a 512 should be okay for that, what problems are you encountering?
10:50<JshWright>Django make caching really easy, be sure you make use of that
10:51<atula>priyesh: no no. no troubles... just thinking about what I need to do to make sure I don't get caught with my pants down in the future
10:51<heylookanoob>priyesh: pasting something to pastebin now
10:51<priyesh>atula: well if things start getting slow in the future, you can upsize the node... although there will be a 'little' downtime to do so
10:51<hawk>atula: Well, obviously you may have to upgrade in the future, but I think the point is that 512 may be enough for now
10:51<priyesh>heylookanoob: oaky
10:52<atula>I got to do a fresh thing to get Debian 6
10:52<atula>I am worried about the whole upgrade path
10:52<heylookanoob>i ran: ps aux | grep apache
10:52<heylookanoob>that's what i pasted
10:52<atula>actually... how is the upgrade path for debina 5 to 6 on the node?
10:52<heylookanoob>i THINK the answer's in there somewhere :)
10:52<JshWright>atula: are you using some off-the-shelf blogging app, or something you wrote yourself?

10:53<JshWright>Mezzanine should have caching built in... throw some memcached at it and you should be good to go
10:54<priyesh>heylookanoob: could you do a $sudo chown -R www-data:www-data ./
10:54<priyesh>inside the www dir for the Virtual Host
10:54<heylookanoob>ok, one sec...

10:54<atula>it might be Newark

10:56<atula>thank you for the resources though
10:57<JshWright>just in case I didn't make it clear, I'm promoting my own product there, nothing "official" from Linode
10:57<JoFe>heylookanoob: just a quick check, you have created the new virtualhost in a new file in /etc/apache/sites-available and symlinked it in /etc/apache/sites-enabled ?

10:58<akerl>heylookanoob: ^^
10:59<priyesh>akerl beat me to it :P

11:00<heylookanoob>do i need to add <Directory ... /> to the one that isn't working?
11:00<heylookanoob>with an Allow from all statement?
11:00<akerl>Why doesn't your working one have a ServerName?
11:01<heylookanoob>it's the default
11:01<akerl>Is it being loaded first?

11:24<Tiven_>i should reinstall it one of these days
11:26<pharaun>i like to recommend smugmug myself
11:26<priyesh>Tiven_: do you know if it supports S3 very well?
11:26<priyesh>i've found an S3 module for it
11:26<Tiven_>sorry no experience with s3, used it with my linode
11:26<Tiven_>but it shouuuuuld be ok i guess?
11:27<Tiven_>s3 is pretty much good for static stuff
11:27<priyesh>i might just fire up a VM and test it out
11:27<Tiven_>its crap when you use it as a filesystem though
11:27<priyesh>Tiven_: oh no! not for filesystem, just to put the photos on there
11:28<priyesh>wouldn't use it for file system any day

11:32<pharaun>gallery i suppose, i personally recommend smugmug
11:32<pharaun>there's always flickr
11:32<erik`>i stopped doing my own image hosting?
11:33<graq>I didn't say I should host them, just that it should work with my own web site.
11:34<graq>I'm mainly curious because there seems to be so much available that is a bit like that, but they all have querks.
11:34<pharaun>smugmug? but its going to cost $ but you can alter/tweak/beat on the theme to make it look like your own site and iirc you can do direct link to specific images in the blog i think
11:34<pharaun>i put it on its own sub-domain for my website so it looks like its part of my site

11:40<akerl>pilesofstones: Check out the Library.
11:40<@Perihelion>We have a whole library of documentation
11:41<D1Nk>pilesofst: bookmark this
11:41<pilesofstones>Any nice colourful videos for simpletons? :D I'll have a read through.
11:41<D1Nk>when i came to linode i knew nothing about linux. now im the "go to" guy and all i've done is read Linode's guides. <3
11:42<akerl>No nice colorful videos. But text tends to be better for snagging commands from
11:42<pilesofstones>That's true akerl
11:42<pilesofstones>So... is Linode an UK company? It's just so many devs I know over here all recommend it.
11:42<linbot>New news from forums: IP Swapping in Feature Request/Bug Report <>
11:43<akerl>Nope. They're US based. But they have a DC in London
11:43<D1Nk>pilesofst: true except most of the commands linode has in their guides dont have "sudo" :(
11:43<pilesofstones>I know you can set your nodes wherever...
11:43<akerl>D1Nk: That's because their guides are designed to be run as root
11:44<@Perihelion>Not everyone uses sudo even when they have the option either
11:44<D1Nk>akerl: blasphemy! i feel dirty when i am logged in (or even just su'd) as root
11:45<D1Nk>akerl: then again im paranoid when it comes to that kind of stuff
11:46<pilesofstones>Why would you be paranoid when you're in as root...
11:46<pilesofstones>I'd be more paranoid if I wasn't root making the changes
11:46<akerl>pilesofstones: Lots of the changes can't be made as non-root. But as root, it's much easier to break things on accident

11:52<Tiven_>fair enough

11:53<D1Nk>pilesofst: honestly I couldnt tell you to pick one OS over another cause i've only used Ubuntu/ Squeeze. As a new user to Linode though I would recommend Ubuntu mostly bc theres a lot of documentation by linode for Ubuntu
11:53<@mikegrb>! people still use slackware?!?!
11:53<akerl>pilesofstones: Either Ubuntu 10.04 LTS or Debian 6. I've heard people suggest Slackware also. I guess it depends on how much you need your server immeadiately operational
11:54<hawk>mikegrb: No, they don't. Don't be absurd.
11:54<pilesofstones>Most of the managed dedicated services I've used in the past have almost always been RH. But I imagine that the learning curve would be too great.

13:19<@Perihelion>I was both
13:19<Tiven_>hey heckman did u read before
13:20<Tiven_>i managed to fix my linode, i think there is no need to redeploy anytime soon
13:20<@heckman>Probably not. Was in VIM hacking on a script. Ah sweet, good to hear!
13:20<echoline>bjorne: why write socket code if you have xinetd? :D
13:20<vraa>should "ipconntrack" ever decrease over time? i'm afraid i perhaps have misconfigured my linode
13:20<vraa>over the last week it has climbed from 5 to 25
13:20<Tiven_>yeah, aptitude offered 12 solutions and every single one of them wanted to install apache for some reason. so i let it do its thing and then removed apache and nginx and reinstalled nginx

13:21<echoline>bjorne: hmm?
13:21<bjorne>echoline: maybe it comes from this bit on xinetd's homepage "xinetd is a secure replacement for inetd."

13:22<echoline>secure as in, does not work by default?
13:22<stokes>is there a timeout limit for ssh sessions?

13:25<stokes>pharaun: yea
13:25<pharaun>do you have um keep-alive enabled anywhere ?

13:25<pharaun>could be firewall/router dropping your connection

13:27<retro|blah>stokes: You might try changing ClientAliveInterval from 0 to 60 in sshd_config
13:28<stokes>retro|blah: cool let me try that
13:28<retro|blah>(And uncomment the ClientAliveInterval line, of course ;)
13:28<retro|blah>You'll need to restart sshd afterwards
13:28<stokes>yea :)
13:28<stokes>ok restarting now lets see if i stay connected
13:28<pharaun>yeah try that, it should send traffic every so often should help you could just have a router that is quick to drop connections

14:14-!-low- [] has joined #linode
14:14<@heckman>Big-Papa: You will need to definitely change to the latest Paravirt kernel as part of the upgrade. As well as enabling "devtmpfs" in your configuration profile after the upgrade is finished.
14:15<@heckman>Also, I meant 10.04 not 10.10
14:15<@Perihelion>I don't think you can skip
14:15<@jed>you cannot skip
14:15*Yaakov skips in defiance.
14:15<@heckman>Ah, so you'll need to edit the sources.list. Easy enough.

15:33<dand>what's the difference between Rebuild and Depoly a Linux Distribution?
15:33<@irgeek>Rebuild removes your existing images & profile first.
15:33<the|Navigator>Also, 116 is t in ASCII. t for "this has been waiting to launch for long enough."
15:34<TheFirst>ooo dallas has IPv6 now? suhweet!
15:34<xt3mp0r>anyone here uses cloudkick?
15:35<@caker>dand: rebuild blows everything away first. Deploy adds another deployment to your stuff
15:35<dand>caker: if I have one partition that is the whole disk size I have to rebuild?
15:36<Peng>dand: You could resize it down.
15:36<@caker>dand: no - you could resize that disk image and then deploy something next to it
15:36<dand>ok. thanks
15:36<Peng>OK, I'm sort of not fully awake. I should definitely work on networking! :P
15:36*heckman is too excited to sleep
15:36<the|Navigator>Peng: netwaking.
15:36<HIghoS>caker: I love that you guys are offering IPv6 now. I just don't want to reboot! 484 days and counting, although I guess a new kernel is in order not to mention I'd get more ram and could get more disk space if I resized considering you guys have upgraded my packages since then! <3
15:37<@heckman>I should have been asleep 4 hours ago

15:39<HIghoS>I was totally going to try it and move it via an UPS too but one of the guys helping me noticed it was running and turned it off. Grrr!

15:43<TheFirst>guess I'll finally get to use that extra ram the linode gods gave us a while back
15:44<HIghoS>(the only thing that would make it better is if they had an colo/datacenter location in Toronto at 151st Front)!!!
15:44<HIghoS>caker: ^ ?? I can wish :D
15:44<the|Navigator>HIghoS: I should sell you a box with a light in it. Minimal upgrades required, the uptime would be immense.
15:44<the|Navigator>HIghoS: I could offer you all kinds of upgrades, you'd shun them, simply ensuring that the light remains on.

17:42<nviror>but according to 'free -m', i'm only using 237mb rest is used by cache.
17:42<nDuff>nviror, ...and that's caching _your_ data
17:43<@jed>right - not all of it is made available to userspace by your kernel. the best explanation I have is that newer kernels set some memory aside
17:43<@jed>you definitely *have* the memory, but the kernel is hanging on to it
17:44<nDuff>nviror, ...if you want more of that to be directly used by applications (which may not be wise from a performance perspective), the kernel is yours to tune or replace.
17:44<nviror>ok, if i downgrade to say 512mb, will it affect my sites?
17:44<nDuff>nviror, depends on how much your sites depend on reading data out of that cache.
17:44<nDuff>nviror, ...if you're running a database server, for instance, cache is often essential.
17:45<nviror>I only use 2-3 wordpress sites with php-fpm, mysql behind it

17:52-!-blacktux [~blacktux@] has joined #linode
17:53<Jippi>then I shouldnt be able to echo append to the file either?
17:53<Papa_Stefano>i don't use pico, but maybe it's turning what you think is an edit/update into a create to do a backup or something.
17:53-!-user487293 [] has joined #linode
17:53<Papa_Stefano>in which case, pico needs write permissions to the parent folder
17:53<Jippi> /var is drwxr-xr-x 14 root root /var/www is drwxrwsr-x 9 www-data www-data
17:54-!-canton7 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
17:55<Papa_Stefano>so /var/www is 775, and if the user has 'newgrp www-data' to join that group in that shell, they should be able to write the file or create a new file
17:55<Papa_Stefano>what does user's 'id' output look like?
17:55<Jippi>uid=995(cw) gid=33(www-data) groups=1010(cw),33(www-data)

18:03<Papa_Stefano>is /var/www a mount point, or just a folder in /var?
18:03<Jippi>its a nfs mount point from glusterfs
18:04<Papa_Stefano>it may be a setting in /etc/fstab. the options need to allow you to write. should be somethin glike nosuid, nodev, natime, rw
18:05<nDuff>nviror, no, I don't mean CPU%. By "load", I mean workload.
18:05<Jippi>I'm using "mount -t nfs -o tcp,vers=3 $GLUSTER_SERVER_IP:/www /var/www"
18:05-!-whitebook [] has joined #linode
18:06<nviror>nDuff, got it. thanks.
18:08<Papa_Stefano>i advise looking at man for nfs and see what options are available. i've had mysterious permission problemns before due to fstab. but i can't be more specific. i haven't done nfs for years.
18:08<Papa_Stefano>because your file and folder permissions and ownership seem ok
18:09<purrdeta>pretty sure is broken...

18:12<pygi>quick question

18:14<Papa_Stefano>and Jippi, i run umask 0022 on debian, so my experience may be different anyway

18:29<Jippi>www-data and root is the only that seem to work
18:29<Papa_Stefano>and you don't want www-data to have write permissiosn in /var/www
18:31<Papa_Stefano>my gut tells me it has to do with the nfs mount, but i can't be specific. honestly, nfs mounting /var/www seems to be a poor-performance thing anyway, probably not wise for a production site.
18:31<Jippi>Papa_Stefano: it performs quite well :)
18:31<Jippi>and nfs / gluster is pretty much the only alternative when you have 10+ webservers

19:14<Newb>i have tried installing rails with their ubuntu 10.4, 10.10 guides with apache or nginx, same with debian lucid and squeeze w both apache and nginx
19:14<Jippi>yep, squeeze doesnt put the ruby into the path
19:14<Newb>the thing is rails commands are not being recognized in the terminal
19:15<@caker>Newb: because bash can't find 'rails' in your PATH
19:15*encode squeezes the path into ruby
19:15<@caker> /var/lib/gems/1.8/bin ?
19:16<Newb>would be nice if they put that little detail in the docs, i been at this 2 days now :(

19:57*caker is going to go with ..... 17 minutes
19:57<Peng>Awesome. :P
19:57<the|Navigator>Are those values (of 512s, 768s, etc) actually real values? I mean, are the servers already designated as to what will be on them, or is that just an 'even spread' and some are really empty and could have whatever is needed on?
19:57<Peng>...Not it matters, I suppose. I'm going to do it anyway.
19:57<bd_>usually less than 15, for that fs size, I'd think
19:57<bd_>but don't quote me on that
19:57<@caker>they're already designated. because we're awesome and group plans on the same host profile together
19:58<@caker>yeah I was trying to manage expectations :)
19:58<@caker>but I agree -- probably less
19:58<the|Navigator>caker: I expected some to be empty and thus be like wildcards so the stats could look more even than they really were.
19:58<bd_>could be longer if you have fs corruption
19:58<Peng>Don't worry, I won't scream at you if it takes 24 minutes. :P
19:58<bd_>Inode 183423 has invalid dtime. Fix?<y>
19:58<Peng>bd_: Let's hope I don't.
19:58<the|Navigator>caker: But I actually appreciate linode more for being true.
19:58<bd_>(repeats 10,000 times)
19:58<bd_>(over a simulated 8kbaud serial link)
19:58<@caker>the|Navigator: no. That would suck and mean a biggie Linode could be on the same machine with a bunch of smaller thrashers ... which is how everyone else does it
19:59<@caker>ergo: Linode is superior.
19:59<bd_>the|Navigator: a few years ago, the fremont availability numbers hit 0 on a regular basis. At those times, they did in fact sell out of the size in question :)
19:59<bd_>caker: How did you guys solve that, btw? Wasn't it DC power/cooling availability that was the bottleneck?
20:00<@caker>bd_: it primarily a capital issue
20:00<the|Navigator>caker: No, I mean you have a server half populated with 512s, a server half populated with 768s, etc and then some servers that are empty. The second one server is full of only its own type, the next empty server becomes designated only for that type of server.
20:00<HoopyCat>the|Navigator: there are also some number of new physical servers that are not yet designated to a plan type
20:01<@caker>the|Navigator: we stay many months ahead of demand in all facilities and have an internal procedure to assign hosts to a profile depending on its general availability
20:01<HoopyCat>(these become really handy on Bad Days)
20:01<bd_>caker: Really? huh. At the time I had heard it was a DC issue. Well, good to know it's fixed :)
20:01<the|Navigator>HoopyCat: Yeah, that was kinda my gist, except I was asking whether those undesignated servers manifested themselves in the stats as just a general bump to the lower digits, but redistributable well before anything actually is placed on it
20:02<@caker>bd_: it probably was that too, but what Tom and I struggled with mostly was capital. Our planning many years ago eliminated that problem over these past few years
20:03<bd_>congratulations :)
20:03<@caker>we were supplying the demand immediately .. and then the demand grew, rinse, repeat
20:03<@caker>thanks :)
20:03<the|Navigator>Linode isn't a bank, it's not a 'too big to fail' company, but it is a 'too essential to fail' to quite a few people, I feel.
20:04<the|Navigator>When we moved from a certain other large VPS provider just before a certain acquisition... I was stunned by how much better things were.
20:04<HoopyCat>the|Navigator: having been a long-time observer of the availability stats and the day-to-day emergencies and large-scale disasters that have occurred over the past few whiles, i'm pretty sure the numbers are accurate indicators of current availability (but do not account for future availability at all)

20:06<the|Navigator>If you got the one in CA, nobody else could have one.
20:06<the|Navigator>bd_: I mean in terms of closing, not in terms of server failure
20:06<@caker>there are more.
20:07<bd_>the|Navigator: also, I'm fairly sure linode has a pool of hosts that aren't yet assigned to any particular plan pool that don't show up in availability stats
20:07<bd_>What I don't know is if those spare hosts are automatically provisioned :)
20:07<the|Navigator>caker: We'll buy them all, and then drop them after you've gone to all the effort of assigning servers, so you're stuck with a load of empty 20s. Muahaahahaa
20:08<bd_>the|Navigator: also, you might be interested in my charts:
20:08<the|Navigator>And thanks to the billing structure, that'll be about $0.08
20:08<bd_>the|Navigator: minimum charge is one day ;)
20:09<the|Navigator>I'll buy them all under a pseudonym, and claim !7day
20:09<bd_>And the credit goes to your account, not your credit card. So linode gets a nice capital infusion, and then they go and manually deprovision them later
20:09<chesty>$5 fee to move the credit back to your bank
20:10<febits>bd_: nice charts

20:30<bd_>I'm running 12.0.742.68, for example
20:30<the|Navigator>bd_: But they have a timescale where on a given date, they will branch and call that the next major revision.
20:30<Peng>I thought that was an IP at first.
20:31<the|Navigator>bd_: Regardless of if the content actually classes as work that would bump the MAJOR or even the MINOR in normal software.
20:31<bd_>the|Navigator: Yes, because they need to stabilize major changes before pushing them out to everyone
20:31<bd_>And yes, they do bump the major then. Ie, the first version segment
20:31<bd_>12.x.x.x -> 13.x.x.x

20:32<the|Navigator>bd_: It doesn't feel right.
20:32<HoopyCat>possible names: Oom Killers, Colonel Panic and the Paravirtualists, Unified Rock Magnates Of Magnificence
20:33<bd_>the|Navigator: It's different, certainly. But I think the idea is the user shouldn't have to think about these things.
20:33<the|Navigator>bd_: I mean compared to other browsers that only bump MAJOR with reason, it implies a more stable, more tested, longer running browser, which isn't necessarily the case. I mean, they're the new guys, but they look like they've been around forever for those people that look at the version
20:33<bd_>The average user can just ignore the chrome version numbers. Every once in a while, new features appear.
20:33<bd_>the|Navigator: Comparing version numbers is inherently flawed.
20:33<bd_>I mean, between different products.

20:45<the|Navigator>Peng: Not quite
20:45<Peng>the|Navigator: It can also send back KoD packets, though anything that listens to a KoD probably isn't abusive in the first plac.
20:45<Peng>the|Navigator: What do you need that NTP's rate-limiting can't do?
20:45<the|Navigator>Peng: Yeah, but this checks every half hour. NTPd will have already had time to send a KoD to them
20:46<Peng>the|Navigator: Do you have it configured to do that?
20:46<the|Navigator>Peng: Yes.
20:46<Peng>Then never mind about me.
20:46<the|Navigator>Peng: But the rate limiting is every how often?
20:46<the|Navigator>Peng: a couple of requests in a second or something?

20:54<Newb>why doesn't linode put his in their docs?

20:59<HoopyCat>caker: Today, at my direction, the Documentation Team launched a targeted operation against that document in the Linode Library. A small team of Linodians carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No apostrophes were harmed. They took care to avoid comma-splice casualties. After an edit war, they corrected the oversight and took custody of the trouble ticket.
20:59<Newb>does that look right, is this referencing ruby or rails this dir /var/lib/gems/1.8/bin

21:02<the|Navigator>HoopyCat: Alright, I wasn't sure which was which
21:02<CuriousGeorge76>anyone got odds on rackspace buying linode and killing it too?
21:02<the|Navigator>HoopyCat: Since tiny sounds smaller, but basic sounds simplified, they both sound inferior. Like Diet Coke and Coke Zero.
21:02<Newb>the girls seem to like vim big
21:02<HoopyCat>Newb: actually, i think you might need to also add 'export' before that, so it is: export PATH="$PATH:/var/lib/gems/1.8/bin"
21:03<chesty>CuriousGeorge76: they already tried
21:03<Newb>lemme try right now
21:03*HoopyCat always forgets something or other
21:03<Newb>whats a quick command to test if terminal is recognizing ruby?
21:03<Peng>CuriousGeorge76: You do realize that Rackspace can't buy Linode unless Linode approves of it, right?
21:03<chesty>HoopyCat: you don't need to re-export an already exported variable
21:03<Newb>so that reveals version of ruby?
21:03<CuriousGeorge76>I know, I'm just venting because I'm moving everything over lol
21:03<HoopyCat>the|Navigator: vim provides /usr/bin/vim.basic, vim-tiny provides /usr/bin/vim.tiny :-) i usually EDITOR=/usr/bin/vim, tho, so it works everywhere
21:04<HoopyCat>chesty: cool
21:04<Newb>do i need to then restart the server?
21:04<Newb>or resatrt apache to load the change?

21:08<Newb>well i restarted the bash profile and apache
21:08<Newb>entered ruby as a command in the shell

21:21<Newb>if in stall mod_wsgi tho on the linode, and add the reference in the virtual host, it seems do to some screwy things in apache, i.e. file types don't get recognized anymore in the browser

21:59<febits>yeah - I've heard good things about linode
21:59<bikcmp>febits: yeah. i mean, like
21:59<bikcmp>the extra money is worth it.
21:59<bikcmp>i've NEVER had issues with them.

22:02<febits>rails/passenger is a little resource hungry. would a linode 1536 be good enough?
22:02<gadams>Is it possible to use SSH Tunnels exactly like a VPN?
22:03<bikcmp>gadams: ssh -D?
22:03<mwalling>febits: try and see, resizing is easy, espically if you're not in production
22:03<bob2>gadams: you need to define 'exactly' and 'vpnh'
22:04<bob2>-D and -w are pretty bloody powerful, though
22:04<Kyhwana>You can get wrappers that force packets through a SOCKS server (-D) per app
22:04<febits>mwalling: ok
22:04<Kyhwana>and I believe you can do that per process/user with iptables

22:05<febits>saw some nice munin graphs earlier on the channel. is it ok to run munin on the same host?
22:05<bob2>gadams: openvpn then
22:05<Kyhwana>gadams: hmm, go with OpenVPN then
22:06<mwalling>gadams: if you want a vpn, install a vpn
22:06<HoopyCat>febits: sure. how else would i monitor my munin collector? :-)
22:06<mwalling>febits: i run munin on my linode (which then reaches out to my other nodes and collects from them)
22:06<bob2>yo dawg

23:30<elkingrey>If I want to connect to my server through sftp, I can use filezilla, alternatively, I can issue the alt + F2 command. I am trying to do this same end around on a Mac OS X. Does anybody know the command for that instead of alt + F2?

23:30<@Perihelion>No clue D:

23:32<jj3>I am having trouble understanding file permissions. When I save a file via SFTP with filezilla client, the file is not part of the group that I set the user to. Thus the file is not writable
23:33<pharaun>jj3: there is 3 permission, you got user/owner, group, world
23:34<retro|blah>elkingrey: Not sure what alt+f2 does on what platform, but I do know there is a command-line sftp client on OS X...
