01:44<TeddyR>Anyone here having issues with kernel panics recently? In the past 3 weeks, I have had my L512 hang at 100% CPU and then the log shows (unfortunately I do not know how to read these yet).. Dont know if I am running out of RAM or if there is something more serious going on.... This node has alot running, but is not full production (its my "allinone playground")...
01:44<@akerl>TeddyR: What kernel?
01:45<TeddyR>This has happened at least twice a week in the last 3. its on Fedora 15, 3.2.1-x86_64-linode23
01:46<XReaper>TeddyR: 3.2.1 is bad
01:46<XReaper>bo back to latest 3
01:46<XReaper>We know of those issues
01:46<KyleXY>bo back, sounds fun
01:46<@akerl>A) Fedora >.< B) "Latest 3.0" is your friend
01:47<XReaper>Yeah... TeddyR, some other people have posted logs of death from their servers running 3.2.1
01:47<XReaper>3.1.8 is a good kernel
01:47<Kyhwana>hmm, im on linode 3.2.1 linode 40
01:47<XReaper>yeah, those kernels are bad
01:47<KyleXY>I'm still on 2.6, heh
01:48<EugeneKay>2.6 4 lyfe
01:48<XReaper>i don't know
01:48<KyleXY>EugeneKay: I just haven't bothered rebooting
01:48<@akerl>XReaper: 3.0.18
01:48<EugeneKay>A good reason
01:48<XReaper>missed a 0
01:48<KyleXY>EugeneKay: Which reminds me, I really should make a damn init script to make my life easier
01:49<KyleXY>Then I could reboot easily
01:49<TeddyR>ok. will try 3.0/3.1 ... thing is that this only started 3 weeks ago... before that it (3.2) had no issues..
01:49<EugeneKay>KyleXY - Upstart or traditional SysV?
01:49<XReaper>3.2.1 is dodge (i've had no issues tho...) but i do run arch...
01:49<linbot>The Romans used Arch. Worked out GREAT for their civilization.
01:50<KyleXY>EugeneKay: Considering last I checked debian didn't have upstart, (unless memory is bad), traditional
01:50<Kyhwana>no problems on mine
01:50<Kyhwana>uptime of 71 days
01:50<EugeneKay>KyleXY - here's a shell of one I cobbled together to autostart my ZNC.
01:50<XReaper>Upstart is ubuntu
01:50<KyleXY>XReaper: somewhat
01:50<KyleXY>XReaper: others adapted to it too
01:50<XReaper>Install systemd!
01:51<@akerl>systemd = evil
01:51<XReaper>akerl: apart from the fact linode is set up to use sysv-init why so evil? :P
01:51<@akerl>i just didn't have a good experience working it
01:52-!-TeddyR42 [] has joined #linode
01:52<jed>XReaper: many distros provided by linode come with upstart
01:52-!-TeddyR [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
01:52<XReaper>upstart works in with sysvinit doesn't it?
01:52-!-sivy [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:53<jed>no, upstart replaces sysv init
01:53<XReaper>and provides a compatibility layer
01:54<@array>jed: imposter
01:55-!-Boohemian_ [] has joined #linode
01:55<jed>array: no u
01:55*XReaper gives array some values
01:56*array doesn't fear the reaper
01:58<XReaper>I wonder if the arch kernels will work with pv-grub...
01:58-!-Boohemian [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:58<KyleXY>So tempted to make an alpine linode
01:59<dwfreed>XReaper: one of those Linux distros you've never heard of
01:59<XReaper>oh cool
02:01<jed>i'm about to drop my nick on dalnet
02:03<KyleXY>neat little distro, though
02:05<igufi>Is there such a thing as a trusted PPA for Ubuntu?
02:05<rnowak>ha ha PPA
02:05<@akerl>haha trusting PPAs
02:05<igufi>I'm trying to find a easy way to get vim 7.3 installed
02:05<Zr40>ubuntu doesn't offer 7.3?
02:06<igufi>I'd like to use "set relativenumbering", among other things
02:06<igufi>10.04 doesn't have it
02:06<@akerl>You could try Arch?
02:06<rnowak>ha ha trusting arch is like trusting random PPAs
02:06<StevenK>7.3 is in 11.04+
02:07<igufi>will I break everything if I add 11.04 repository and install vim via that?
02:07<igufi>would that even work?
02:07<Zr40>can't you just upgrade to 11.04?
02:07<rnowak>so what feature from 7.3 is it that you want?
02:07*EugeneKay tries to decide between adding a third Linode or using his referral credits to pay the bill
02:07<Zr40>rnowak: he said it was relativenumber
02:07<bob2>yes just installing the binary package from 11.04 will be troublesome
02:08<igufi>bob2: ok .. I won't try that then
02:08<rnowak>Zr40: are you igufi?
02:08<Zr40>rnowak: no, but igufi literally said he wanted that
02:08<igufi>I did, yes
02:08<rnowak>Zr40: "among other things"
02:09<Zr40>rnowak: then, s/what feature/what other features/ :)
02:09<rnowak>Zr40: I'll tell you if I want a summary
02:11-!-EugeneKay [] has quit [Quit: ZNC -]
02:11-!-EugeneKay [] has joined #linode
02:11<igufi>so what else? :later :earlier .. set colorcolumn would be nice too
02:12<igufi>anyway, I'm just going through my options on how to get 7.3
02:12<igufi>I could also wait for the next LTS release .. it's coming out this month, I believe?
02:13<rnowak>well, it is likely going to be a one-off installation considering how many patches vim receives
02:13<igufi>and I'm sure there will be good guides on how to upgrade from one LTS to the next
02:13<rnowak>compile yourself, checkinstall it, and you'll have a nice .deb
02:15<igufi>I would yes, but then I would have to patch it myself in the future
02:15<vodka>new vim releases stopped being exiting when I realized I didn't even use 1/10th of its current features anyway ;p
02:16<vodka>insert missing letters to taste
02:16<retro|blah>As much as I love vim I do value the ability to exit it
02:16<rnowak>so what you're saying is that you're a dirty emacsos user+
02:17<Zr40>emacs users don't even pretend to have the need to exit their OS
02:17<vodka>nah I am saying all I use is open file, go to line, change line, :wq
02:17<jed>:%s/blargh/bling/g <-- your pal
02:17<EugeneKay>sed -i s/blargh/bling/g
02:17<jed>'re already in vim
02:18<jed>why do I even bother
02:18<amitz>did someone say...oh, it's just a text editor, never mind.
02:18*vodka should have a look at vims features and learn to use more of them ;p

02:28<Phr34Ck>Hello, I have bought I went to DNS manager and created new master zone using and my email address. Where should I specify that this domain is pointing to a specific ip address where the web application is hosted? I want to point to that ip address.
02:28<Phr34Ck>I looked into A records, but they require a hostname (like www)
02:28<@akerl>A) A/AAAA records B) I doubt you bought domainname.come
02:29<KyleXY>don't we have an alias about nerfing configs?
02:29<KyleXY>Close enough? heh
02:29<KyleXY>Phr34Ck: the hostname can be blank
02:29<KyleXY>Phr34Ck: not "required"
02:29<Phr34Ck>KyleXY: ahhh, that's why it took it empty when I put !
02:30<Phr34Ck>thank you
02:30<Zr40>!to KyleXY redact -- this one?
02:30<linbot>Please don't redact or change things when you pastebin your configs. It's a lot easier for us to debug if we're seeing the same thing you are.

02:32<Kyhwana>Phr34Ck: A/AAAA records
02:33<Kyhwana>then you need to setup virtualhosting on your webserver

02:59<KyleXY>I might just kill whoever adapted their ascii script for that
03:00<linbot>STOP TOUCHING ME
03:00*KyleXY kills dwfreed?

03:09-!-hipsterslapfight [] has joined #linode
03:09-!-Boohemian [] has joined #linode
03:12<gylt>jed: eheh, so, what does that do exactly? < IFS=$'\n' > wha?
03:13<@akerl> <-- potentially useful
03:13<js_>tells bash which delimiter to use
03:14<KyleXY>jed: heh, yay exec/eval
03:14<gylt>ah ok. and the variable argument, 'figlet hello'?
03:14<KyleXY>gylt: bash command,
03:14<KyleXY>not command
03:15<KyleXY>just a call to another program
03:15<KyleXY>figlet makes ascii art
03:15<gylt>ah, ok, I haven't heard of it :(
03:15<jed>this one will blow your mind:
03:15<KyleXY>Bah, screw it, time for bed, I'm apparently too exausted.
03:15<jed>figure that one out
03:16<KyleXY>jed: pulls stuff in from the file stuff?
03:16-!-Bdragon [] has joined #linode
03:16<jed>yeah, inline
03:16<jed>for i in $(<dork); do # is a common way I work
03:16<KyleXY>Kyles-MacBook:~ kyle$ echo $(<stuff)
03:16<KyleXY>woo for guesswork
03:16<jed>there's easier ways, but sometimes I have to build a command in there and it's easier
03:16-!-Boohemian_ [] has joined #linode
03:16<jed>for i in $(awk ... < stuff); do for example
03:17<jed>bash-fu makes life good.
03:18<gylt>if I'm understanding it right, ultimately, its usage in that construct is limited to filtering files?
03:18<jed>it's just redirecting stdin, and without a command it becomes a "slurp"
03:20-!-Boohemian [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:25-!-vodka [] has joined #linode
03:25<gylt>so, I guess I just changed IFS's value. should I change it back, or should I not worry about it?
03:25<jed>it's reset at shell startup, and weird things happen if you leave it something nonstandard
03:26<KyleXY>wee #bash, oh wait..
03:26<gylt>< See the discussion below (if possible avoid modifying IFS):
03:26<jed>there's also OFS
03:27<gylt>ok, I guess you addressed that, nvm

03:46<Zr40>slap all the things!
03:48<gylt>wow, one should really use > with caution
03:48<gylt>(e.g., $ >somefile just erases somefile very conveniently)
03:49<jed>that's a pretty common admin tool
03:49<jed>erase a log? >bam
03:49<gylt>any examples of how a command may start with <?
03:49<Zr40>the log writers don't even need to get a new fd when you do that, right?
03:50<@akerl>Zr40: Why are you using > onto your log files?
03:51<Zr40>akerl: I'm not
03:52<gylt>I went to a meetup today, and I was just blown off my feet seeing a guy on the command line. I mean, with all of these nifty tricks and all.. besides the readline shortcuts, using simple things (like the < or > operators) very cleverly. I wish someone would compile a list of "things that sysadmins do often" somewhere so I don't have to quiz people "heyyy how'd you do that" so much :D
03:53<@akerl>gylt: Have you heard of the internet?
03:53<@akerl>It's full of useful tips and tricks
03:53<jed>I showed someone ^A and ^E
03:53<jed>and they were like :O
03:53<Zr40>hey, nice. Didn't know "< foo" would write that to stdout
03:53<Zr40>jed: what does that do?
03:53<jed>this was, of course, after watching him hold down -> to get to the end of the line
03:53<jed>^A, move cursor to the front, ^E, move it to the back
03:53<Zr40>like, home and end?
03:53<jed>(for most things readline, and others)
03:54<gylt>do you know of ^? to undo?
03:54<jed>yeah, but I tend not to use it
03:54<jed>I stick with ^A/^E/^W
03:54<KyleXY>jed: heh, quite honestly I almost forgot about those
03:55<KyleXY>jed: I hardly use them because of screen making me have to do ^A a
03:55<dwfreed>^U will clear the line
03:55<jed>I just do down for that
03:55<jed>or ^C to abort entirely
03:55<dwfreed>KyleXY: and because just hitting home is easy
03:55<@array>^R is worth a mention
03:55<KyleXY>dwfreed: no home on my keyboard :p
03:57<Zr40>KyleXY: what keyboard is that/
03:57<dwfreed>array: holy crap that's handy (and I'll forget it in 5 minutes :))
03:57<KyleXY>Zr40: macbook keyboard
03:57<Zr40>KyleXY: fn-left
03:57<@array>dwfreed: hah, yes :)
03:57<@array>dwfreed: it's a real time saver
03:57<KyleXY>Zr40: Yeah I know, too far to reach with fingers though
03:58<dwfreed>yeah, beats history | grep by a long shot
03:58<jed>^R is the best thing ever
03:58<Zr40>KyleXY: end: fn-right, and I think you can guess page up and down
03:58<jed>once you get ^R down, you are hot shit
03:58<KyleXY>Zr40: I just use irssi's built in stuff honestly

03:58<Zr40>KyleXY: I fn-up/down in irssi. What stuff are you referring to?
03:59<KyleXY>Zr40: alt+p alt+n
03:59<Zr40>option*, since you're on osx
03:59<KyleXY>I left my option keys mapped to their respective things :p
03:59<KyleXY>ñ wee
03:59<gylt>to complete username, do esc~, to complete command (instead of file) do esc!, to complete hostname esc@, etc.
03:59<KyleXY>Just so I can do stuff like that
03:59<Zr40>though indeed I do have 'Use option as meta key' enabled
04:00<KyleXY>Zr40: I hardly use meta in irssi,
04:00<gylt>(of course, I don't use esc -- I use alt, more ergonomic. I've got a habit now of doing alt+shift+{`,1,2,3} now a lot for no reason)
04:00<Zr40>KyleXY: not even to switch between irssi windows?
04:00<KyleXY>Zr40: 260? pssh
04:00<KyleXY>Zr40: /w for the win
04:01<KyleXY>260 different windows.
04:01<Zr40>that's... a lot.
04:01<KyleXY>or somewhere around there, probably more now
04:01<jed>introducing: /wc
04:01<KyleXY>jed: I have a /qc for queries already heh
04:01<KyleXY>sad thing is a majority of them I actually talk in
04:01<gylt>oh, and use ^p and ^n to go up and down the history in the term (instead of up-arrow down-arrow)
04:01<Kyh_>aww, got some hits on the honeypot, but nothing interesting
04:02<EugeneKay>Which honeypot?
04:03<Kyh_>looks like scanning bots, they login and then just disconnect
04:03<EugeneKay>Yeah, botnet.

04:12<XReaper>heh i watched an attack on kippo once
04:13<XReaper>kept trying usernames as passwords
04:13<jed>which, sadly, works
04:14<XReaper>Kay... So if i want to hide the real ssh, should i run it on a port <1023?
04:14<jed>without question, and consider what you're gaining
04:14<XReaper>Ability to run kippo
04:14<EugeneKay>Use ratelimiting with a redirect
04:14<XReaper>nehow, i can make avail via a redirect
04:15<EugeneKay>If a source IP attempts >5 connections/min, forward them to kippo
04:15<gylt>why on a port above 1023? what's so special about that number?
04:15<jed>any user can bind to ports > 1023
04:15<jed>only root can bind to ports <= 1023
04:15<XReaper>nmap only searches up to 1023
04:15<jed>if you let it choose defaults
04:16<EugeneKay>There's a question - does PREROUTING support rate-limits?
04:16<jed>-m limit should be available everywhere, I would think
04:17<XReaper>my vps is obvs the firewall :/
04:17<EugeneKay>What about -m connlimit
04:17<XReaper>had to write my own ip6tables rules on my dd-wrt
04:17<XReaper>that was fun...
04:18<EugeneKay>I think I need booze.
04:18<XReaper>should make an automated vending machine that uses a linode :D
04:18<EugeneKay>Ah nvm that's only available by patch

04:22<gylt>I notice a lot of folks in this channel use dd-wrt
04:22<EugeneKay>I don't; I use an i3-540 with 5x2TB drives and two NICs. ;-)
04:23<gylt>well, actually 2, but stilll... anyway, I'm surprised dd-wrt is more used than openwrt, considering dd-wrt's interesting history

04:29<gylt>this is quite a relevation -- knowing about figlet. I always thought that it was just some weird fetish of some people to meticulously craft ascii logos for their leet hacker groups and whatnot. Wow, this changes things quite a lot, heh

04:31<XReaper>gylt: dd-wrt has more support then open-wrt
04:31<XReaper>Plus, it is commercially backed
04:32<gylt>isn't tomato also commercially backed? some buffalo routers come with it iirc

04:34<gylt>how does that tie into the situation. Your router and home.. and linode?
04:34<gylt>between putty and my linode, everything else is immaterial so long as I have a working internet connection. What fun stuff do you do that dd-wrt is of any important?

06:35<Kyh_>What do you mean?
06:35-!-Boohemian [] has joined #linode
06:35<Patel>I mean i want to operate MySql from server...
06:35<chesty>i think Patel means from their desktop, not through ssh command line
06:36<Kyh_>operate? there's mysqladmin which you run locally..
06:36<LiquidAtom>Patel: Do you mean access the mysql server externally.
06:36<Kyh_>Isn't there that gui thing people use?
06:36<LiquidAtom>MySQL Admin or something like that (I think).
06:37<LiquidAtom>MySQL Workbench
06:37<Kyh_>nah, there's some windows gui client thing that you can use, though it's recommended you use it over a ssh tunnel
06:38<Kyh_>yeah, that was it
06:38<LiquidAtom>It's got an EOL announcement as well :o
06:38<Patel>Currently I am logged in my Linode server....but I can't see any link or tab for Mysql...
06:39<Kyh_>uh, logged into your linode how?
06:39<LiquidAtom>Patel: I would seriously recommend heading over to the Linode Library.
06:40<Patel>Not getting
06:40<Kyh_>Patel: how are you logged in? via ssh?
06:41<Patel>I am logged in from browser
06:42<chesty>logged into what from browser?
06:42<Kyh_>OK, logged into what using your browser? Do you mean the linode dashboard? (That isn't logging into your linode, it's the dashboard that controls it, overall, not whats running on it)
06:42<Patel>I am on my linode DashBoard
06:42<Kyh_>Patel: you can't control stuff running on your linode from there, that's just for doing things like rebooting it, etc.
06:43<Kyh_>It's not a control panel for your VPS, in the usual sense you're thinking of. If you want a control panel, you have to install one on your linode.
06:43<Patel>got it..
06:44<Patel>How to install control panel?
06:45<Kyh_>Someone else can answer this one :P
06:45<@akerl>apt-get install gui-all-the-things ?

08:34<BenOvermyer>Anyone from Linode itself here?
08:35<linbot>Users with ops are employees of Linode, and know what they're talking about. The rest of us are the ever-so-helpful(?) community. Official Linode contact information:
08:37<BenOvermyer>Maybe I don't need a Linode staffer for this, though. If I import a 2GB .sql file into my Linode server, does that count against my traffic limit?
08:38<DrJ>BenOvermyer: no
08:38<BenOvermyer>Also keen.
08:38<DrJ>a few months ago all incoming traffic was made free
08:38<BenOvermyer>That's slick.
08:38<BenOvermyer>How do you guys use Linode?
08:38<DrJ>only outgoing traffic counts against quota
08:38<DrJ>you what what do we use it for?
08:38<DrJ>*you mean
08:39<DrJ>that would be a different answer from just about anyone
08:39<BenOvermyer>Haha, fair enough. I'm just curious, since we're a very new customer.
08:40<DrJ>I use mine to run websites, but mainly a police scanner stream site
08:40<BenOvermyer>Oh? Isn't streaming bandwidth-intensive?
08:41<DrJ>I have 400GB/month for my quota
08:41<DrJ>I usually use 300GB of it
08:41<DrJ>its just a 32Kbit audio stream
08:41<DrJ>one user listening 24/7 all month only uses 10GB (roughly)
08:42<BenOvermyer>We're using it to move our company's database and web servers into the cloud instead of our server room.

11:54<hawk>Narasimha: With _luck_: pulling the plug, booting finnix and trying something like could help
11:54<@caker>Narasimha: if you don't have backups, then you lost the filesystem structure. You may be able to find the data still using a tool such as ext3grep -
11:55<MaZ->note: dont shut down
11:55<MaZ->or write anything to the disk :V
11:55<hawk>Would shutting down actually make any difference?
11:55<hawk>Writing to the disk clearly is a huge no-no...
11:55<MaZ->depends if the shutdown process ends up writing stuff to disk
11:56<@caker>I'd pull the plug (issue a shut down job or disable Lassie, and immediately issue a Lish destroy)
11:56<Narasimha>IN fact, I came to know about that through reboot only..after reboot...I could not find it :(
11:56<Narasimha>does it help?
11:57<EugeneKay>In a nutshell, you're boned.
11:57<hawk>Did you store all your mission critical files in /tmp ? :P
11:57<EugeneKay>"If your data isn't backed up off-site, you didn't really want it."
11:57<Narasimha>I am sorry, not :(
11:58<EugeneKay>Sorry, but a reboot means that your chances are essentially nil.
11:58<EugeneKay>(lots of disk I/O over the journal)
11:59<MaZ->btw hawk im guessing even the act of flushing logs to disk on shutdown could be enough to screw up recovery chances
12:00-!-saikat [] has joined #linode
12:00<hawk>MaZ-: Quite possibly. I wasn't strict enough about my interpretation of "shutting down".
12:01<Narasimha>If I try with above tools, will it help?
12:01<MaZ->Narasimha: after rebooting? the chances are pretty much zero
12:01<hawk>Narasimha: Probably not, I suppose you could try anyway
12:01<MaZ->but i mean... no harm trying
12:01<MaZ->did you like... delete /boot or something

12:21<MaZ->nicinabox: could be hitting maxclients, or your machine could be spawning too many apache processes to serve requests, running out of ram and starts paging until the machine catches up
12:21<MaZ->2 of many many reasons it could become unresponsive :V
12:21<EugeneKay>DOn't forget gardwn gnomes.
12:21<EugeneKay>They're always an issue.
12:22<MaZ->(or the OOM killer is nuking your apache processes ¬_¬)
12:23<nicinabox>MaZ-: thanks, I'll check there
12:23<MaZ->nicinabox: are you running mod_php or something?
12:23<MaZ->because that will spawn a ~30mb min usage process for each concurrent request
12:24<MaZ->with apache default settings of 150? iirc maxclients, thats a possible ram usage of 4.5GB
12:24<MaZ->so unless you have a large linode... :>

12:25<nicinabox>MaZ-: yikes! yes, using mod_php
12:26<MaZ->right so mod_php runs the PHP interpreter inside each apache process
12:26<MaZ->which boosts their memory usage pretty massively
12:27<linbot>New news from forums: I need help with the configuration of my magento in Web Servers and Web App Development <>
12:28<nicinabox>MaZ-: is overall memory usage a useful indicator? (it seems normal)
12:30<MaZ->it'll be normal right up until the point you get a load of requests at once, then the machine will crap itself :p
12:30<MaZ->but bear in mind this is only 1 reason it might happen
12:31<MaZ->the other "way" of running php is to do it via fastcgi, so you use something like php-fpm to control PHP processes (so you can set a min / max and php-fpm will control the number of processes which are spawned) and then set apache to use it via fastcgi
12:31<MaZ->but it's a bit of a ballache to setup with apache at least
12:31<MaZ->benefit is it gives you more control over apache and php memory usage
12:31<XReaper>on nginx its awesome
12:32<MaZ->its like a 5 line setup on nginx
12:32<MaZ->but then you lose .htaccess and have to rewrite your httpd config :)
12:32<nicinabox>i wish we were using nginx, but alas
12:34<MaZ->well if that IS whats causing your responsiveness issues, you should have a look at the apache section
12:34<nicinabox>Ahh, i am hitting max clients. should I bump it up?

12:36<nicinabox>MaxClients currently at 19. Should I go lower?
12:36<@caker>is 19 between 15 and 20?
12:36<nicinabox>it is
12:37<@caker>did you disable keepalives yet? :)
12:37<nicinabox>i did
12:37<@caker>ok - you'll be fine!
12:37<@caker>if that doesn't solve the problem, then it's something else
12:37<nicinabox>okay! I'll keep an eye on it
12:38<nicinabox>you guys are the best
12:39<MaZ->cakif you hit maxclients but the server still has enough memory that it doesn't fall over, do you get a 503 or somesuch?
12:39<@caker>requests beyond MaxClients queue
12:41<MaZ->nicinabox: its basically a balancing act - you want to have your maxclients high enough so that everyone coming to your site can load the page without being queued, but you want it low enough to never spawn enough apache processes to cause an OOM on the linode
12:41<nicinabox>ahh okay
12:42<MaZ->and if you're unable to get your maxclients high enough with the amount of memory you have on the linode, you either need a larger linode or do some magic with load balancers and multiple linodes
12:42<MaZ->by turning off keepalives you basically state that each http request closes as soon as it's complete, which leaves more apache processes free to handle new requests
12:42<MaZ->(can you tell im bored at work and waiting for 6pm?)
12:43<nicinabox>i'm glad you're bored at work :P
12:43<@caker>KeepAlives off on low memory rigs is good stuff

15:13<Evocore>sure thing
15:13<rnowak>(not sure if that's all there's to your issue, but openssl does change how it works depending on specified endings)
15:13<JoeSa>caker: So what do I do if 'dig' gets the correct IP, but even with using a browser I haven't used before, the wrong page is displayed?
15:14<Ecksley>Should I be mindful of anything other than 'upload_max_filesize' and 'post_max_size' if my site if having trouble upload a 3mb file?

15:14<@heckman>JoeSa: /etc/hosts ?
15:14<@heckman>Also, are you digging on the same box you are viewing the page from?
15:14<Katana>JoeSa: you are doing both dig and chrome views from the same system,
15:14<Katana>close chrome, reopen it.
15:14<Katana>it maintains a local dns cache.
15:15<JoeSa>heckman: Katana: Doing everything from the same system. Didn't restart Chrome, but I opened and closed and re-opened Firefox and got the same results.
15:15<JoeSa>Katana: Oh, so I need to restart _every_ web browser?
15:15<Evocore>rnowak: still says Begin Certificate at the top
15:15<Katana>no, just chrome
15:15<Katana>or try opening up: chrome://net-internals/#dns
15:15<rnowak>Evocore: paste the command you run again
15:15<Katana>make sure you're on the dns tab, then click "clear host cache" button
15:16<Evocore>sudo openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -out /etc/ssl/localcerts/apache.csr -keyout /etc/ssl/localcerts/apache.key

15:17<Katana>JoeSa: if dig is giving you the right ip though, that should mean that it's a dns caching issue with something system level or application level, anyways
15:17<rnowak>Evocore: remove -x509
15:17<JoeSa>Katana: Pressed the button - Chrome has the same result.
15:17<Katana>windows or *nix system btw
15:17<JoeSa>Katana: Right. So it's a problem somewhere on my system. BLEH, I have TTL. I guess restarting everything should fix it up fine?
15:18-!-jbw [] has joined #linode
15:18<@heckman>Have you checked the network tab of Chrome to see where it's connecting to?
15:18<JoeSa>Katana: hate*
15:18<Katana>JoeSa: or *nix system?
15:18<Evocore>rnowak: it now says begin certificate request, looks like it might work
15:18<JoeSa>Katana: I'm on OS X
15:18<rnowak>Evocore: that's what it is supposed to say
15:18<Evocore>its strange the differences between the 2 docs
15:18<JoeSa>heckman: It does that? I'll take a look
15:18<rnowak>Evocore: huh?
15:18<Evocore>i originally followed the subjectaltname docs
15:18<Evocore>which had the -x509
15:18<@heckman>JoeSa: there's some network extra info tab somewhere, yeah. I forget where it hides.
15:18<rnowak>Evocore: `man req`
15:19<Katana>heckman: settings button on the lower left maybe
15:19<rnowak>Evocore: adding -x509 signs the certificate, so you create a self-signed cert instead of a request
15:19<JoeSa>heckman: It's the same IP that 'dig' gets me - I think that's the right IP, lemme just double check
15:19-!-Drone4four [] has joined #linode
15:19<Evocore>well thank you very much for your time, i appreciate it

15:20<JoeSa>heckman: caker: My bad, 'dig' gets me the WRONG IP [and hence Chrome is using the wrong IP]
15:20<@heckman>And now you know. :)
15:21<JoeSa>So it's an ISP thing?

File permission are 777 on destination folder. I'm wondering if there is something Nginx related I should do differently? And thank you. I really do appreciate you time and help.

16:22<Ecksley>After letting the wheel spin for a ver long time and trying to save the node I received the following nginx promt: 413 Request Entity Too Large. The file is a 3.3MB PDF.

16:23<rnowak>ok, so change client_max_body_size in nginx to something a bit larger than 20MB
16:24<Ecksley>Max_execution_time was 30. I changes it to 0 which I understand is unlimited?
16:24<rnowak>nginx buffers the upload, your script isn't hit until it is done
16:24<rnowak>ok, so change client_max_body_size in nginx to something a bit larger than 20MB

18:33<bdfoster>is the private network supposed to be slower than the connection to the internet?
18:34-!-Bryen [~bryen@] has joined #linode
18:34<bdfoster>i.e. i grabbed a test file on linode one, at 7mbps, and then grabbed the same file from linode 2 off of linode 1 and it's about 50 percent slower
18:34<@caker>We rate limit outbound to 50Mbps at the NIC level - inbound is not limited. If you need higher bps file a ticket
18:35<@caker>you grabbed that file from a remote server to a Linode = inbound traffic which isn't limited
18:35<bdfoster>not really a limiting factor, just curious
18:35<linbot>Outbound bandwidth from your Linode is capped at 50mbps to keep you from eating your entire transfer quota in an hour. You can have this limit raised by submitting a support ticket with appropriate justification.

21:06<purrdeta>it isnt, why disable it though?
21:06<retro|blah>Disable in what sense?
21:06<purrdeta>well that too
21:06<Kyhwana>griz: why?
21:07<griz>I was trying to set up an additional ip address and static networking, thought I'd enable ipv6 while I was at it, then found out there's a lot more to it than just pressing that button. Now I'm facing problems and I don't know what the cause is. I'm trying to isolate it.
21:08<griz>Should have done my reasearch :/

21:12<griz>thanks caker. Not sure anyone can help right now... I've also been having trouble with backups recently and I can't even restore anything atm. I have nothing to work with and I'm waiting for post processing to finish on the last snapshot before trying again.
21:14<griz>It's wierd because if I enter the FQDN of my server I get the single html page that's hosted there, but nothing on aegir works after I've gone through the static IP guide.

21:37<Kyh_>fix it so you can't break it
21:37<bob2>yeah, ipv6 is not the problem
21:38<griz>Yeah, I can see that now. I was just bricking it because I changed too much at once and in this case there's no undo button.

21:49<rnowak>I take my coffee vrysrs
21:49<purrdeta>I am so hungry.
21:51<griz>purrdeta, you have the internet... so many ways to fix that problem.
21:51<griz>the horror...
21:51<@Perihelion>papa johns has a 25% coupon today :3
21:52<purrdeta>hah. I am in class, however. So it must wait
21:52<rnowak>I more than once left a class because I wanted to nom, fuck class, give me my noms.
21:52<purrdeta>I agree. But he hasnt taken attendance yet and I've put in this much time, I will get recognized for it. :P
21:53<purrdeta>I just want to graduate. Soon enough, I suppose.
21:53<griz>Ah, I hate that. All our lecturers take the register at the start except ONE. And everyone knows why.
21:53<purrdeta>griz: what are you studying?
21:54<griz>Because he's so boring that if he didn't take it at the end everybody would leave.
21:54<griz>Sound engineering.
21:54<rnowak>lulz attendance, like kindergarten
21:54<purrdeta>griz: this is a 3 hour class. People leave in the middle otherwise. So I dont blame him. He took attendance at the beginning for a bit and now at the end :)
21:54<rnowak>don't wanna be there -> your problem
21:54<griz>This man makes the most fascinating subjects mind-numbing.
21:54<purrdeta>This is the USA, we must be babysat :)
21:54<purrdeta>griz: interesting
21:54<purrdeta>at least for me, it is the USA
21:55<rnowak>how are you in class right now in the US?
21:55<rnowak>night skewl?
21:55<purrdeta>It's almost 9PM :)
21:55<@Perihelion>None of my professors took attendance
21:55<purrdeta>sorta. 6:30-9:30PM :/
21:55<@Perihelion>they were just like "youre an adult, make your own decisions"
21:55<purrdeta>Once a week, yay
21:55<rnowak>Perihelion: that's how it goes here
21:55<purrdeta>Perihelion: most of mine are. some arent. Some give extra credit of sorts if you come
21:55<rnowak>except for classes which do not have a written exam; those require attendance to pass, which is pretty obvious
21:56<Nivex>my profs were all "You paid to be here. I don't care if you don't show up."
21:56<@Perihelion>yeah exactly
21:56<@Perihelion>Where is mein pizza? :<
21:56<rnowak>nommed it
21:56<purrdeta>I get annoyed at people who pay for a class and then never show up and also complain about how poor they are and how tuition is so high and shit :/
21:57<griz>I wish the magic Linode monkeys would hurry up Process my Post.
21:57<rnowak>well, it depends on lecturer -- some you're better off without
21:57<Gshock>Make people take a bunch of bullshit classes they dont want for a bullshit degree and its easy to see how things get that way though
22:00<Nivex>only one of you got that over IPv6.
22:00<praetorian>Perihelion: Si
22:00<purrdeta>Everyone always told me... "When you get to your major classes you get to take ones you want!" Partially false. I still have to take several classes I dont want as it is required. :)
22:00<@heckman>Nivex: what's the IP?
22:01<rnowak>IPv6 is a fad
22:01<Nivex>rnowak: just like the Internet
22:01<@heckman>hrm, my PTR record for that IP looks messed.

22:02<@heckman>griz: which IP?
22:02<Nivex>that's a Dallas pool
22:03<retro|blah>Enclose them in []s if you're pasting into a browser
22:03<@heckman>Also, there's no web server running on my MacBook
22:03<rnowak>heckman: there should be!
22:03<griz>thankyou retro|blah

22:08<griz>how long does post processing usually take? I know it'll be dependent on the amount of stuff backed up. This one only took 7 mins... been waiting for pp for about an hour now.
22:10<griz>Ah, n/m. I know that's not an answerable question.
22:10<griz>but... is it queued up with other ppls?
22:11<griz>yeah, must be. doesn't use the server's cpu so...
22:12<griz>frack. I can't go to bed with my server not even booted. I suck at this almost as much as I suck at telehack.
22:12<@akerl>Why isn't your Linode booted?
22:13<griz>I lasted about half an hour and started reading an essay on star wars vs star trek.
22:13<griz>Because I can't restore any backups.
22:14<griz>and I deleted my other filesystem before restoring. So many lessons in such a short time.
22:15<griz>spsoe I could restore to another linode
22:15<griz>or... not?

22:36<@heckman>Sell em on eBay
22:37<MTecknology>no thanks, makes food awesome
22:39<rnowak>because it is totally sane to add pure capsaicin crystals to cooking, what a stupid thing to do
22:39<MTecknology>it's not pure cap...
22:39<rnowak>then it isn't capsaicin crystals
22:40<MTecknology>only 15,200,000 SHU, pure is 16,000,000
22:40<rnowak>still retarded
22:41<rnowak>are you seriously asking why it is stupid to be cooking with near-to-pure capsaicin? nevermind, continue, I guess darwin needs his game to play out
22:41<MTecknology>The dumb part is rubbing your nose and sniffling. The amazing part is adding it to food.

22:47<rnowak>I work as an organic chemist, I know what capsaicin is, thanks
22:48<rnowak>and if you don't notice pure capsaicine, why don't you try inhaling some
22:48<mbreslin>i'm familiar with grain and hops
22:48<mbreslin>not sure if that helps
22:48<mbreslin>just putting it out there
22:49<MTecknology>I didn't say I don't notice it. I enjoy the heat.
22:49<@heckman>I set some stuff on fire once.
22:49<avenj>I killed a man in Reno.
22:49<MTecknology>I ate a brownie once.
22:49<mbreslin>that was dumb, probably be caught
22:49<mbreslin>should have killed him in vegas
22:50<avenj>I'm not sure that "stays in vegas" applies to warrant extradition for first degree murder, mbreslin
22:50<avenj>but I'll keep it in mind
22:50<rnowak>MTecknology: you said you wouldn't notice it if you ate it pure

22:52<pharaun>then dissolve it on your tongue
22:52<MTecknology>it won't
22:52<rnowak>ha ha
22:52<pharaun>lemme guess, you need to dissolve it with the heats of a thousands SHU >:3
22:52<MTecknology>needs to be disolved in things like butane, alcohol, or some oil
22:52<MTecknology>pharaun: ha!
22:52<pharaun>olive oil it is then, drink that and take some
22:52<rnowak>I'll dare you, crush it up into a powder, and inhale it. Disclaimer: I will have no liability. Also, you may want to call for an ambulance.
22:53<pharaun>double dare
22:53<mbreslin>do you think if i was the single winner and won the 346 million or whatever i would have any pull in getting diablo3 before the may 15th release date?

23:47<auraka>Peng: out of curiosity try
23:47<daftspunk>hey guys need some help with vsftpd , i installed and set up successfully, when i log in via a client and do "ls" it just sits there
23:47<auraka>daftspunk: first question...did you google?
23:48<rnowak>zeroth question: why ftp?
23:48<daftspunk>auraka: ofc
23:48<Kyhwana>daftspunk: you want passive mode. Also, don't use FTP
23:48<daftspunk>SFTP too slow
23:48*rnowak blink
23:48<auraka>daftspunk: do you have a firewall?
23:48<daftspunk>PASV invalid cmd
23:49<Peng>auraka: Wilco
23:49<Peng>auraka: It accepted and ::/0
23:50<auraka>Peng: there ya go
23:50<Peng>auraka: We can see in 10 minutes if it *works*...
23:50*SleePy is a ram newb.
23:50<SleePy>Should I go with 667MHz or a "800MHz CL6"?
23:50<Peng>auraka: I also tried leaving it blank in another zone.
23:51<rnowak>SleePy: depends on the latencies, but tbh, you won't notice a difference
23:51-!-wkl [~wkl@] has quit [Quit: wkl]
23:51<Peng>auraka: Wait, now it just accepted "any".
23:52<@heckman>Peng: what's your question?
23:52<SleePy>rnowak: I will with a 800mhz. My current ram it appears is only 400mhz. I need to get an upgrade on this system :D
23:52<Peng>heckman: 03:46:36 < Peng> "• The AXFR IP 'any' appears to be an invalid IP address." What.
23:52<auraka>daftspunk: maybe I'm stupid but for some reason I thought ftp servers used the dir command instead of ls? Probably my stupidity
23:52-!-vraa [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:52<@heckman>Peng: that should be fixed...
23:52<Peng>heckman: Within the last 5 minutes?
23:52<rnowak>SleePy: there's more to it than just frequency, CL and other latencies among other things
23:53<@heckman>Few hours ago.
23:53<Peng>heckman: Oh, huh. Maybe it didn't deploy to all of the servers?
23:53<@heckman>Might not be totally patched until the A.M. Sorry bout that.
23:53<rnowak>SleePy: and those frequencies are for single channel operation mode, you'll likely have a dual channel memory controller, so double that frequency
23:53<Peng>heckman: I did it again in a different zone and it worked...
23:53*heckman submitted the fix
23:53<@heckman>Peng: has to do with whitespace.
23:53<auraka>heckman: make them do it right....
23:53<Peng>heckman: I shall survive. Thanks for fixing it. :)
23:53<Peng>heckman: Ah. I probably did the whitespace differently.
23:54<SleePy>rnowak: True. I'm not good at this thing. Just looking to get some more ram into my desktop. Its swapping a lot when I try to run too many apps or some games
23:54<Peng>auraka: Shush
23:54<daftspunk>auraka: both work
23:54<@heckman>Peng: no worries. Was definitely fun devving that feature. :p
23:54<daftspunk>so why is FTP bad? security risk, 3rd party ppl sniffing my data?
23:54<auraka>daftspunk: did you try the dir command
23:54<linbot>Please use SSH/SCP/SFTP/rsync-over-ssh instead of FTP:
23:54<@heckman>daftspunk: plain text
23:54<SleePy>Will just go with the 800mhz. If I won't notice much of a difference and they are the same price why now
23:54<rnowak>SleePy: well, unless you will be doing computationally heavy stuff, that has to move around a lot of data in RAM, you won't notice the difference -- just add more RAM and be happy :p
23:55<Kyhwana>SleePy: moar ram is moar better
23:55<daftspunk>auraka: ya
23:55<Kyhwana>SleePy: Is this for a P4 or something?
23:55<SleePy>I will be happy when my system doesn't slow down while it swaps
23:56<rnowak>and you're sure your computer can take that RAM?
