06:59internat any ppl good with apache in here?
07:03internat anyone?
07:05BurtyB why not just blurt out the question.. you never know someone might answer..
07:06internat ok
07:06internat can anyone help me quickly with apache and virtual hosts? i thought i had it downpat but i dont
07:06internat <internat> basicly i have 2 ip addresses, and i want any webpage connection to goto /home/nf/www except if i have a diff virtual host, like that i want to goto /home/maven
07:06internat multiple different domain names point to the box
07:08BurtyB and do they point on different IPs?
07:08internat no
07:09BurtyB in that case make your virtual host entry for whatever site goes to /home/nf/www first in the list and put the rest after it and it should do that
07:10internat err.. shouldnt i do it the other way arround?
07:10internat /home/nf/www should be like the catchall
07:11BurtyB if you think that then try it....
07:11internat im just trying tos ave myself time by asking, i thought it would be logical for the catchall to be at the end..
07:12BurtyB *shrug* it works the way I said it works for me.. ymmv
07:12internat ymmv?

07:25tjfontaine you're mileage may vary
07:26tjfontaine the first is the default, you need at least two vhosts for resolution to work

15:11eurozip caker you here?
15:13@mikegrb I am
15:13eurozip any way you can block all incoming connections except from my ip on my linode?
15:13@mikegrb not really
15:13eurozip process "pwned" running :)
15:13@mikegrb you can though
15:13eurozip 12 is load level
15:13eurozip can't do anything
15:14eurozip I just shut it down
15:26eurozip mikegrb, can you or caker modify files on my uml node?
15:27eurozip like /etc/shadow, ha
15:27eurozip seems pw has been changed
15:30kvandivo good thing you had backups
15:30eurozip yes, I do
15:30eurozip however, without root I can't put the old /etc/shadow there
15:31tsi lish, boot single user
15:31eurozip will try, thx
15:32@mikegrb tsi: thanks
15:33tsi i hate hackers
15:33fo0bar reformat, install windows xp
15:35eurozip yea, then I won't have to worry about anything
15:35eurozip lish goes through a kernel loader, like lilo?
15:36npmr uml kernels are not loaded by a loader like lilo
15:36fo0bar eurozip: not exactly, to boot in single user mode, log into the web interface, open the current profile, and there's a radio button for single user mode
15:36npmr a uml kernel is simply a program on the host machine
15:36tsi (or make a new one, and name it "single user mode")
15:36npmr lish just gives it the right command line arguments
15:38@caker being able to do "boot single" or "boot init=/bin/bash" via Lish would be cool
15:38@mikegrb it would
15:38* caker adds to the to-do
15:38@mikegrb I should get on that
15:38@mikegrb shouldn't be too dificult
15:38fo0bar mikegrb: was there any serious issue with 2.6.10-linode11?
15:39eurozip thanks
15:40fo0bar caker: be careful to screen the input for something like that... it would be too easy to do "boot single ubdc=/linodes/mikegrb/grbpr0n.fs"
15:40@caker fo0bar: no, linode12 has mppe-mppc and policy-map added
15:40npmr boot ubdh=/etc/passwd
15:40@caker fo0bar: yeah, it wouldn't actually pass values, just check against a list
15:40* mikegrb boots npmr
15:41fo0bar caker: cool... was the "load !< 1.00" problem fixed?
15:42@caker fo0bar: no -- Blaisorblade is working on it:
15:42eurozip that worked, pw back to normal
15:42fo0bar caker: ok, thanks
15:42eurozip I wonder what was used, time to look
15:43eurozip guess I need to emerge sync...
15:43* fo0bar should reboot one day... new kernel... and there's 1.5GB not being utilized on the running system's partition
15:44fo0bar though space is no longer an issue, I found out what was eating up all my disk... I turned on query logging on named one day, and forgot to turn it off :)
15:44adamg hah
15:45adamg some people have turned on mysql query logging, and wondered why they are out of disk space within a day
15:45fo0bar imagine trying to shave off a couple hundred MB here and there, then noticing a 3.5GB log file :P
15:47adamg that could be a tad annoying
15:51encode hahha

16:06jotun is there a page that lists uptimes and other stats for hosts?
16:06eurozip I forgot I had that running on 1 virthost
16:07eurozip going to stop it now, ha

16:38@caker One of my old XO colo boxes wrapped Linux's uptime
16:38@caker and then some
16:38@caker I think it wrapped around 471 days er something?
16:38@mikegrb mmm bacon tomato pizza
16:38@caker but, that box just sat there and did nothing (it was a backup box)
16:38@mikegrb homemade sauce with fresh herbs
16:38@mikegrb mmmmm
16:39@mikegrb mmm cake
16:39Surferdude better than cake mikegrb? :P
16:39@mikegrb close
16:40Surferdude Call me a noob, but is cfm a real programming language
16:40jotun i think it's coldfusion
16:40Surferdude Ah
16:41Surferdude I was wondering what language caker used to code the LPM
16:41eurozip perl
16:41fo0bar COBOL
16:41@mikegrb cfm
16:41@caker Surferdude: ColdFusion on the web side, perl on the host side
16:41@mikegrb backend is perl
16:41Surferdude Ah
16:46Surferdude Behold my lazy coding skills
16:47Surferdude I got a freelancing job... just starting it now

18:41@mikegrb er
18:41@mikegrb one moment and I'll make it so
18:42@mikegrb done
18:42@mikegrb if you are currently logged into the member's site log out and back in to see your new space
18:42mcowger damn. Quick. Will I get and invoice?
18:43@mikegrb at the end of the month
18:43mcowger Awesome. Thanks mike.
18:43@mikegrb you are already payed up until then so you will be billed on the first for a full year
