00:00<XReaper>doing the maths wrong
00:00<@Praefectus>more like 2.50 or 3
00:00<XReaper>Oh ok
00:00<@Praefectus>once you take fees into account
00:00<XReaper>And paying bi-annually...
00:00<jchen>paypal fees yeha
00:00<@Praefectus>which still doesnt make it worthwhile
00:00<@akerl>jchen: boo paypal
00:00<XReaper>Praefectus: oh yes, they get their cut
00:01<jchen>2.9% + 30 cents per transaction doesnt sound much beter than paypal fees
00:01<@Praefectus>paypal, cc fees, or merchant account costs, any way you look at it, its not worthwhile
00:01<@Praefectus>paypal is 3%
00:02<jchen>not that much better
00:02<@akerl>jchen: Except stripe is less likely to decide you're a risk and lock your funds
00:02*jchen srugs
00:02<@akerl>where less likely == not gonna happen
00:04<@Praefectus>given the amount of your average transaction running gameservers, stripe costs more
00:04-!-endzyme [] has joined #linode
00:05<@akerl>I'd still stripe over paypal. If the increased fractional percent in cost were a deciding factor, I'm not making enough to turn a reliable profit anyway
00:06<@Praefectus>i rarely use paypal anyway
00:07<XReaper>then what do you use instead of eBay? :P
00:08<@Praefectus>you buy your parts off ebay?
00:08-!-desc|zenbook [] has joined #linode
00:08<XReaper>why would i do that
00:08<@Praefectus>iunno, why do you kiwis do anything?
00:08<XReaper>cos i'm not a kiwi?
00:09*Praefectus cant tell

01:55<@akerl>The default username is "root". If you've made another user, you can use that user, but we don't have a log of users you've created
01:55<XReaper>mo: once you ssh in, you can create your own user
01:56<XReaper>i'd suggest putting a complicated password on root or have it key-only. (you can also disable root logins :/)
01:56<ghosticus>why the :/
01:58<@heckman>root logins using pubkey-only auth <3
01:58<@akerl>single packet auth + 2 factor

02:05<@akerl>mo: I can provide help equal to the overlap of the information you provide me and my own knowledge. You have provided 0 information, so I can provide 0 help

02:06<Kyh>mo: for what?
02:06<allandavao>akerl: operator is not a human right?adm and gopher

02:06<@akerl>mo: What user/IP are you connecting to?
02:06<Kyh>mo: ... what user? to your linode?
02:07<allandavao>akerl: this one is blue vcsa:x:69:69:virtual console memory owner:/dev:/sbin/nologin
02:07<allandavao>blue moon or color blue
02:07<@akerl>allandavao: I have no earthly idea what you're asking me
02:07<mo>this is IP
02:08<@akerl>What user?
02:08-!-Dedalo [~Dedalo@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:08<@akerl>And you're using the root password you set in the rescue tab?
02:09<Kyh>mo: using the root password you set in the linode dashboard? (and then rebooted to have it set)
02:09-!-Dedalo [~Dedalo@] has joined #linode
02:09<@akerl>Kyh: Rebooted for what now?
02:09-!-Dedalo [~Dedalo@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
02:09<mo>yes just now i done
02:09<allandavao>akerl: i mean, there's no bad hacker people in my list?coz i just add user "allan".
02:09<Kyh>akerl: hrbhg? don't you need to reboot to change the root password?
02:10-!-Dedalo [~Dedalo@] has joined #linode
02:10<@Praefectus>Kyh: no, you need to shut dowm, change root, then boot
02:10<@akerl>Kyh: If you aren't powered down already, the reset job will fail. His IP is responding now, so if the job suceeded, he's booted back up since
02:10<Kyh>Ahh ok, right.
02:10<@akerl>allandavao: What "bad hacker people" are you talking about?
02:11<mo>what is the solution for that??
02:11<Kyh>mo: type in the correct password
02:12<Kyh>(what if the previous admin set public key only root login/no root login? LISH?)
02:12<@akerl>mo: Either you're typing the wrong password, and you should type the right password, or you did something to prevent root password logins over SSH, in which case you should LISH and fix that
02:12<linbot>LISH allows you to perform certain actions without having to log in to the Linode Manager. LISH's primary function is to allow you to access your Linode's console, even if networking is disabled.
02:12<mo>yes type i am copy and paste the apssword
02:14<allandavao>akerl : just want to ask if noe one is accessing the box.or other people entering the box.coz i just added user just "allan"
02:14<@akerl>allandavao: There is no way for me to answer the question you're asking
02:15<@akerl>Whether or not you've been hacked is not dependent on the contents of your user list
02:16<allandavao>sorry and thanks.i just want to lock it down.
02:17<mo>i was enterd corrct pasoowrd
02:19<@akerl>Is that not a good thing?
02:35<chesty>is that not a fantasy?
02:36<@akerl>Are we human?
02:37<chesty>do you like guns or are you human?
02:37<@Praefectus>i like guns

02:40<chesty>it's unbelievable the kinds of guns are legal to own in usd, like wtf do you need that cannon for?
02:40<@Praefectus>zombie defense!
02:41<@akerl>chesty: Go troll elsewhere, kthnx?
02:41<chesty>i hear #tardigens is a good place
02:41<XReaper>akerl: who said it's trolling
02:41<@akerl>"wtf do you need that for" isn't a legitimate case for the owning of something being illegal.
02:42<Peng>chesty: I need my cannon in case of British invasion, duh.
02:42<XReaper>akerl: is it illegal to own an ICBM?
02:43<chesty>XReaper: join #tardigans
02:43<@Praefectus>you can even buy decommissioned missile silos
02:43<@Praefectus>(to store your icbm)
02:43<EugeneKay>Or urmom's marital aid
02:43<@heckman>Which I guess if you're storingan ICBM in it, makes it no longer decommisioned?
02:44<@Praefectus>well, decommissioned as far as the military is concerned
02:44<@akerl>Is storigan like a toboggan?
02:44<Peng>It's like a toboggan for an ICBM.
02:44<XReaper>Should turn an icbm into a datacentre
02:44<EugeneKay>It's been done
02:44<XReaper>cops come, you launch it
02:45<XReaper>linode + an orbital data centre? why not!
02:46*Praefectus already has an orbital attack platform nearing completion
02:46<mo>i changed password in dashboard

02:47<mo>i have 3 site in linode
02:47<KyleXY>Did you start the box up again..?
02:47<@Praefectus>Peng: no, this is my first one, some parts are operational, kinda like the death star, but its not complete yet
02:48<mo>box up ?
02:48<XReaper>mo: did you boot it again
02:48<Peng>Praefectus: ...Isn't there someone named Luke at Linode?
02:48<Peng>I see...
02:49<@Praefectus>he isnt a pansy like mark hammill though
02:49<@Praefectus>he took the offer to join the dark side
02:49<mo>please help me ASAP to
02:49<@akerl>mo: LISH
02:49<linbot>LISH allows you to perform certain actions without having to log in to the Linode Manager. LISH's primary function is to allow you to access your Linode's console, even if networking is disabled.
02:49<@akerl>Use it
02:49<@heckman>Love it
02:49<Peng>Lish is the force?
02:50<Kyh>mo: find out why your webserver isn't up, check your logs (/var/log/) etc
02:52<mo>how ?
02:52<mo>oh shite still not laoding site
02:52<Kyh>.. look in your logs and find out why your webserver isn't coming up?
02:53<@heckman>Could also try starting it. Maybe you didn't configure it to start at boot?
02:53<linbot>New news from forum: apache-mpm-event: optimizing for linode-512 in Performance and Tuning <>
02:53<@heckman>Your Lish console may have some insight as well.
02:53<mo>i clike reboot button
02:53<mo>i clikced
02:54<@heckman>Right, that reboots it. But your web server/web apps still need to be started by the operating system.
02:54<mo>how long time get that?
02:55*XReaper compiles linux-next for his linode
02:55<@heckman>One of two things happened: 1.) Your web server was never told to start (which means you misconfigured something with the init scripts. 2.) You hit some sort of error when the software tried to start, whhich is most likely a configuration problem as well.
02:55<@heckman>mo: I'm not sure I understand your question.

02:56<mo>every options are SUCCES in --Host Job Queue
02:56<KyleXY>As far as I'm aware, from his previous dwellings in the channel, he might be running cPanel, but at this point I'm really not sure
02:56-!-Ehtyar [] has quit [Quit: Never look down on someone unless you're helping them up.]
02:56<@Praefectus>hes workin on another kick for ban evasions again too
02:57<@heckman>mo: yes your Linode started, that has absolutely nothing to do with the software within your Linode.
02:57<@heckman>mo: the Linode Manager can only tell if the Linode kept running (and didn't power itself off due to error). It is unaware of what's running within your Linode.
02:58<linbot>New news from forum: caught SIGTERM, shutting down? in Web Servers and Web App Development <> || My server is spamming, need help in Email/SMTP Related Forum <>
02:58<mo>yeh server Status is Runinng
02:59<@heckman>Yes it is.
02:59<mo>then why sites are not loading
02:59<@Praefectus>mo: are you reading anything anyone is telling you?
02:59<@heckman>Because *something* within your Linode isn't running.
02:59<@heckman>mo: it's like your desktop being turned on, but Google Chrome is closed. Your system is still running, just your web browser isn't.
03:00<@heckman>In this case, it is your web server that isn't running. The system itself is. You need to go in there and figure out why it's not behaving as expected.
03:00<@heckman>First step would be to log in and try to start the web server manually. If you get errors, Google search them.
03:00<@heckman>If it fails to start but there are no errors, check your logs for any messages and then Google those.
03:01<@heckman>ugh, chair's gas cylinder is going bad
03:01*heckman sinks to the floor
03:03<Peng>heckman: ....Chrome? Not Firefox. :(
03:03<Peng>...I don't know why I said that. Software arguments are boring.
03:03<@heckman>That would be the equivalent of your system OOMing. "Your system is on, and Firefox is running..."
03:03<Peng>Except for distros and web servers.
03:03<@heckman>Also, Chrome's dev tools = <3
03:04<mo>i am closed google crome

03:05<Kyh>Praefectus: you're my hery
03:05<Kyh>I don't know what a hery is, you might not want to be it
03:05<@Praefectus>i was tryin to give him a chance, not anymore
03:05<@heckman>What was he banned for in the first place?
03:05<chesty>asking questions
03:06<Kyh>heckman: ignoring answers
03:06<@heckman>I'm pretty sure that's not a reason to ban someone.
03:06<Kyh>Praefectus: well ok then
03:06<@Praefectus>he was getting ignorant and cussing at people
03:06<Kyh>heckman: what if they repeatedly ignore answers and start swearing at people?
03:06<@heckman>That makes for a fun experience.
03:07<chesty>there's that parrot again
03:07<KyleXY>Just looked into it
03:07<KyleXY>He didn't have cPanel at all, was just a web server
03:09<KyleXY>Of course, unless he had a illegal copy :p

05:42<rkrk>Can I create a new linode as a clone from an existing one, and pass that linode to another user account?
05:42<rkrk>How do i do that?
05:42<Kyh>I think you both have to open tickets with the various details
05:42<XReaper>submit a support ticket from both ends to confirm receipt of the linode
05:43<XReaper>like account names etc
05:43<rkrk>OK, so first to clone the linode in one account and then open ticket to transfer it
05:43<@Praefectus>rkrk: or use
05:43<XReaper>Oh, haven't seen that one
05:44<rkrk>thank you very much guys
05:44<XReaper>rkrk: doing it that way won't cost you any $$ on your account :P
05:45<XReaper>so technically i could make a freebsd xen-pv image and dd it onto a linode :P

11:25<boose>is nginx's rewrite engine as powerful/flexible as apache? i would consider switching to nginx iff it can handle logic in rewrites, and isn't too terrible to set up (the rewrites)

13:40<MajObviousman>Peng: you're using urandom, which is overflowing int fields and not cannibalizing your entropy
13:40<MajObviousman>for the latter you'd use /dev/random
13:41<Peng>MajObviousman: I thought it cannibalized most of my entropy first, though.
13:42<MajObviousman>hmm, you might be right
13:42<MajObviousman>A counterpart to /dev/random is /dev/urandom ("unlocked"/non-blocking random source[4]) which reuses the internal pool to produce more pseudo-random bits. This means that the call will not block, but the output may contain less entropy than the corresponding read from /dev/random. While it is still intended as a pseudorandom number generator suitable for most cryptographic purposes, it is not recommended for the generation of long-ter

13:59<MajObviousman>a lot of them are OpenVZ
13:59<Surz>Peng, never mind. they are getting changed because I got the owner messed up
13:59<boose>that's a slow virtualization set, right?
13:59<MajObviousman>and while we could quibble semantics over the definition of VPS
13:59<MajObviousman>it's your own OS without guaranteed resources
13:59<MajObviousman>usually heavily oversold
14:00<boose>i looked at one from that link, it said 128MB guaranteed, with burstable to 256
14:00<boose>i guess that's the fine print
14:00<Peng>boose: It's not that it's slow, it's that it's basically a chroot jail, and it's easy to oversell RAM, and a lot of sucky VZ providers do that.
14:00<Peng>boose: So, yes, the experience is frequently awful. But it's not really VZ's fault.

14:38<bacon>iteye, AFAICT CPU is oversold, but not excessively so.
14:38<boose>i want to use php-fpm rather than php-fastcgi for handling a php app. says, "PHP-FPM is now included in PHP core as of PHP 5.3.3." and packages.debian says that for debian squeeze (stable), the package of php5 is "5.3.3-7+squeeze14" - does that mean i have php-fpm built in??
14:41<iteye>My VPS 1.7Ghz+1024RAM by hetzer is veeeryyy slow, i search some solution.
14:41<@caker>iteye: you have found it. :)
14:42<iteye>And I'm worried about whether it would be the minimum plan is bad for me. Sorry for google translate.
14:43<boose>iteye you can upgrade if necessary
14:43<bacon>Hetzner is great for lower-level hosting. I moved from them here.
14:44<iteye>Ok. I think i can test it.
14:44<boose>iteye :) good luck
14:44<Nightmare>Yup, should certainly find yourself s good place here with Linode. :)
14:44<sean>boose: in testing fpm comes as a separate package, i'm not sure if it's in the php5-cgi package in squeeze
14:45<boose>sean i just realized it is not :(
14:45<iteye>But the cost of a Hetzer for VPS 2.4 $ =)
14:45<boose>so i'm stuck either compiling from source or using dotdeb's repos, which i hear is not a good thing
14:45<bacon>iteye, and you get what you pay for.
14:45<boose>but i'm afraid to compile by source, miss a security update and get hacked... :/
14:45<sean>boose: or bumping up to wheezy
14:45<boose>iteye if your business model can't sustain $20/month to host your business, something is wrong
14:45<bacon>iteye, sign up for a linode and play for a few days. If you aren't taken, you can cancel your account and get a partial refund (Yes?)
14:45<boose>sean wheezy isn't stable though?
14:46<sean>boose: you can run php5-cgi in a very similar way, with php actually doing the sub process management
14:46<boose>sean can you explain?
14:46<@mikegrb>mmm bacon
14:46<hawk>bacon: "Oversold" in what sense? The actual spec doesn't even cover cpu and what the faq says is just that you are guaranteed an equal share but can use more if others idle.
14:46<sean>boose: with debian's release cycles sid is almost stable :-p
14:47<bacon>hawk, "can use more if others idle" implies oversold.
14:47<boose>sean i run on a production server, so i can't take the chance on having a server down

14:47<@mikegrb>mmm bacon
14:47<hawk>bacon: "Oversold" to me implies that if everyone can't get what they were promised at the same time. WHat you were promised was an equal share.
14:48<iteye>Where i can find more info about linode plans?
14:48<bacon>hawk, overselling is done at a specific ratio. ISPs for example oversell their bandwidth. The bad ones do 1:20 or 1:50 even, and the good ones 1:10.
14:48<bacon>* or less.
14:48<iteye>There just price, storage, transferan RAM
14:49<bacon>iteye, you can run whatever linux flavour you want.
14:49<@mikegrb>mmm bacon
14:49<hawk>bacon: Yes, but if all the ISPs promised was an equal share, then they wouldn't be overselling. Right?
14:49<bacon>hawk, if the ratio was 1:1, yes, but that's not sustainable.
14:50<sean>boose: look at part 2 of this
14:50<@mikegrb>mmm bacon
14:50<hawk>bacon: How would it not be sustainable? It would just mean that they would only guarantee very low speeds.
14:50<sean>boose: and then throw something like this in your apache config, "FastCgiConfig -idle-timeout 500 -maxClassProcesses 1"
14:51<bacon>hawk, sure, but if an ISP advertised 100kbps, they wouldn't sell anything.

14:51<sean>boose: what that will do is tell fastcgi to launch one php processes and give all of the requests to it, then the php cgi will launch sub processes up to the limit you set to deal with requests
14:51<boose>sean thanks
14:52<@mikegrb>mmm bacon
14:52<hawk>bacon: Yeah, but that's beyond the point. And that is essentially what Linode appear to be doing wrt CPU, they barely promise anything but in practice it works out pretty well.
14:52<sean>boose: that also makes it easy to run the whole thing through suexec which has other benefits
14:52<boose>sean i hear suexec isn't trivial...
14:52<bacon>hawk, you seem to be taking the concept of overselling negatively. I'm not using it in a negative light in this case. From what iteye describes, hetzner oversells their CPU at a higher ratio than linode.
14:52<sean>hawk: to a certain degree you can see what's being "stolen" from you cpu wise
14:53<iteye>and what about bandwidth ?
14:53<sean>boose: you just have to set the cigWrapper and make sure your stuff has the right permissions
14:53<@mikegrb>mmm bacon
14:53<hawk>bacon: No, you're not getting my point then. I'm not even defending Linode or anything, I just don't see how "overselling" applies in a scenario where the spec just says "you are only guaranteed an equal share".
14:53<boose>i see, okay
14:54<boose>alright, i'm off for the day. have a great rest of the day #linode and sean!
14:54<sean>boose: so i guess if you don't have a good idea behind how permissions work, then it might be non trivial, but in principal it's not that bad
14:56-!-andyboot1 [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
14:57<@mikegrb>mmm bacon
14:57<hawk>bacon: At least in my book "overselling" is about the difference between what is promised/advertised/whatever and what you will actually get worst case. In this case there are no fancy promises made, hence I don't see how it applies.
14:57<bacon>hawk, worst case being everyone using 100% CPU
14:58<@mikegrb>mmm bacon
14:58<hawk>bacon: Yes
14:59<EugeneKay>The fact that Linode gives you >1 core to abuse when nobody else is using the host's processors makes them about 9000% better than every other VPS host
14:59<bacon>And if that worse case scenario were to happen, everyone wouldn't get the same performance as under normal circumstances
15:00<bacon>I forget what we are debating about. I suggest we agree to end it and that I win this round.

15:04<bacon>yes, even is better than odd.
15:04<@mikegrb>mmm bacon
15:04<hawk>bacon: I get a feeling you are trying to read something between the lines of what I'm saying. I meant exactly what I said, ie, I don't see how "overselling" can be applied in a situation where you were sold the crappy 1:1.
15:04<bacon>'cause bits are measured in even numbers, you'd want to guarantee that things align correctly.

15:24<sean>calimike: one would argue that you will know when you need a cdn
15:24<Peng>calimike: A CDN might be nice, yeah, but Fremont and Tokyo aren't exactly the opposite side of the planet, so they shouldn't be necessary for performance.
15:24<calimike>Has anyone had experience setting on up with Linode? Is it relatively straightforward?
15:25<Peng>Setting what up? A CDN?
15:25<Peng>If so, yes and yes.
15:25<calimike>Ah, and is it expensive?
15:26<calimike>Basically I'm on the fence between Linode and AWS. I've heard some amazing things about Linode. For AWS, it is a well recognized standard. I am also considering ease of scaling and also performance internationally.
15:26<sean>calimike: i use for cdn type stuff
15:26<@caker>Linode is no harder to scale than an EC2 instance is
15:27<Peng>calimike: Linode sells transfer at $0.10/GB. Depending on your usage, and assuming you're not Netflix or YouTube, CDN transfer will probably run you $0.05-$0.35/GB, perhaps with some meager storage costs.

15:33<sean>calimike: 24/7 nodes are often cheaper on linode, consistent disk io profiles are better on linode
15:34<Peng>AWS is super-complicated.
15:34<sean>calimike: dynamicly adjusting node counts is slower (imho) on linode, cloning nodes is also much slower
15:35<Peng>sean: Since Linode pro-rates to the day, adjusting them frequently is not cost-effective.
15:35<sean>Peng: depends on what you're doing, but often yes
15:35<sean>Peng: i wasn't even takling about cost, i was talking about node spin up speed
15:35<Peng>sean: Sure, but cost is relevant too.
15:36<sean>sure, fair enough

15:39<Peng>My original /dev/urandom thing is working again o_O
15:39<sean>calimike: and a bunch of stuff still on linode
15:39<eyepulp>so I just upgraded a node from ubuntu 11.04 to 12.04 - and upon restart I'm no longer in the sudoers file. I've previously disabled the root password on this box, so I'm starting to think I'm pretty screwed. I was following the linode upgrade guide, but I'm stumped. Any thoughts?
15:40<Peng>Ohh. Duh. It's blocking, so it can only support one concurrent request. Duh.
15:40<eyepulp>joining #ubuntu to ask a similar ? wish me luck
15:40<sean>eyepulp: boot into recovery and change what needs to be changed?
15:41<eyepulp>sean - can I boot into recovery when the root account no longer has a PW ?
15:41<@heckman>eyepulp: did you go from 11.04 right to 12.04? Or did you stop at 11.10 in the middle?
15:41<@heckman>!to eyepulp finnix
15:41<linbot>eyepulp: Finnix --
15:41<eyepulp>heckman: went to 11.10, then to 12.04
15:41<eyepulp>heckman: sudo was working @ the 11.10 point
15:42<@heckman>You can edit the sudoers file in Finnix. You could also enable the root user again, too.
15:42<eyepulp>thanks for the link - reading now
15:44<eyepulp>I see there's a reset root password option directly on the linode rescue interface too - that would actually be enough to get me going I think

17:45<kyhwana>scale all the things!
17:45<davehewy>I've shopped around and tried numerous different solutions out and tbh nothing quite fits.
17:46<davehewy>I like EC2 but don't really love that there's no support at all!
17:46<talntidd>are you capable of doing your own apache configuration, davehewy?
17:46<@caker>Cloud/Linode/AWS/Rackspace all are not magically scalable. You still need to architect things correctly and work at it
17:46<hays>davehewy: Im hosting a wordpress blog using the smallest linode with a LEMP stack on Debian testing (mine probably won't get a lot of traffic until it goes stable)
17:46<hays>davehewy: setting it up was pretty easy, had help here, and I am happy with it.
17:46<encode>the only thing linode fails at, is the lack of an australian datacenter
17:46<davehewy>Capable of setting up a linux server.
17:46<eyepulp>davehewy: Maybe linode won't fit either. But if you're on the fence between AWS & linode, I can say our company has used both, and continues to use both (one for s3, and now linode for all our fps servers).

17:50<@caker>Tea: doesn't apply .. and really that's just there to prevent people from wasting our time wanting $0.12 back (which has happened)
17:50<davehewy>nope your right
17:50<Tea>caker: Ohh okay
17:50<davehewy>you can do a little with caching etc to make it better though
17:50<Tea>davehewy: Well there you go. If you're not happy in 7 days, you get it all back.

23:10<zweckdev> * zwecksrv - (9118291) Lassie initiated boot - Completed Tue, 16 Oct 2012 02:56:23 GMT
23:11<@heckman>zweckdev: check your logs / any open support tickets.
23:11<zweckdev>heckman: which log should i check?
23:11<@akerl>Lassie initiated reboot means your Linode stopped running. Generally, that is caused by something internal to your Linode. If it wasn't, you'd have a support ticket opened
23:12<zweckdev>heckman: i just checked /etc/messages and nothings strange happened

23:46<trav>kyhwana, here is updated:
23:47<trav>still redirecting to other website
23:49<trav>kywana, here is my sites enabled folder:
23:49<trav>it looks like is a redirect, and it is smaller than the rest....
23:49<dcraig>sites-enabled should contain symlinks to things in sites-available
23:50<kyhwana>trav: now what does apache2ctl -S say?
23:50<dcraig>you can create the config files in sites-available and then use a2ensite to add the symlinks
23:51<trav>thanks kyhwana!
