19:08<webtrog>r these ready to start hosting websites out of the box?
19:10<gpd>you need to setup your linux distro to do so
19:11<webtrog>is there a walkthrough somewhere? on the wiki?
19:12<kriby>the forums have guides. if you are just wanting a simple website, linode likely isn't for you. linode is a complete linux install that you have administer and manage.
19:12<erikh>yeah, it's probably a lot more work than you want
19:12<gpd>however - it does give you a great way to learn linux etc
19:13<erikh>eh, learn linux behind the nat, I'm tired of all the spam :)
19:13<webtrog>yeah i've got about 10 sites i need to move, im considering hosting my own but im not sure i like the idea
19:13<webtrog>its not a bad deal really for the price
19:14<gpd>webtrog: linode is more like a dedicated host than a regular hosting site (eg. cpanel)
19:14<erikh>you setup everything.
19:15<erikh>it's highly likely it's not what you want.
19:15<gpd>like having your own PC in a coloco somewhere...
19:15<gpd>fantastic -- if that is what you want :)
19:15<erikh>heh, yes
19:16[~]erikh returns to the lurk
19:16[~]gpd returns to the shizzle

19:20<Dreamer3>evening all
19:20|-|Referee [] has joined #linode
19:20<webtrog>after you set up apache, like in ubuntu, how do you make the link to the user's files?
19:20|-|Referee [] has quit [Quit: ]
19:22<gpd>what do you mean? user's files?
19:22<npmr>by "set up" do you mean "install"?
19:23<npmr>because it sounds like you have *not* finished setting it up
19:23<webtrog>don't you have to link the /var/www/site to their home/user files
19:23<webtrog>im trying to think through it lol
19:23<npmr>what's one of the domains?
19:23|-|Dreamer3 [] has quit [Quit: ]
19:24<webtrog>im in the process of buying one now, but i was trying to set it up on a laptop i have at home to make sure that i could do it
19:24<npmr>you said you had about 10 sites to move
19:24<webtrog>kk i have
19:25<npmr>that address currently resolves to
19:25<npmr>is that the address of your linode?
19:25<webtrog>i am buying one now, i have to transfer all of these
19:26<npmr>i see
19:26<gpd>webtrog: you are brave :)
19:26<gpd>you will need to setup apache for each domain - you can set the DocumentRoot to wherever you want
19:27<gpd>eg. /home/user/www
19:27<gpd>or you can do /var/www/domain/
19:27<npmr>yes, each domain you wish to host on your linode will require a VirtualHost definition in apache
19:27<gpd>if you use apache2 then the domains are all in sites-available
19:27<gpd>ubuntu 5.10 uses apache2 by default iirc
19:28<webtrog>yeah i read that
19:29|-|webtrog9 [~webtrog@] has joined #linode
19:35<Antitribu>anyone in here used quagga? (or zebra, or cisco ios)

19:53<Quizzer>is thier an rpm to install TCL 8 in centos
19:54<Quizzer>or a tutorial that will install it
19:58<npmr>are you sure you can't just use yum to install it?
19:59<Quizzer>dont know what to use as the package name
19:59<Quizzer>its not tcl
19:59<gpd>yum search tcl ?
19:59<gpd>yum apropos tcl

20:29<FireSlash>caker or mikegrb, are you around?
21:13|-|Dreamer3 [] has joined #linode
21:14<Dreamer3>anyone home
21:29<DarthClue>maybe, maybe not
21:41<DarthClue>see, caker never goes home.
21:44<FireSlash>You know you want to :]
21:44<@caker>10mbit is expensive, homeslice
21:44<@caker>so, I'll pass
21:52<FireSlash>I figured not, I just figured if you had the spare bandwidth and space, it might be good advertising.
21:52<FireSlash>I don't know how much slack is in linode's fat pipes :)

22:08<fo0bar>caker: <-- you could mirror gentoo, and get threatened by a DMCAbot like I did ;)
22:10<fo0bar>wow, it's the 14th already
22:11<Dreamer3>you can't mirror gentoo?
22:11<fo0bar>Dreamer3: RTFA
22:11<Dreamer3>i am
22:11<Dreamer3>just asking :-)
22:13<fo0bar>at the time I was mirroring gentoo (both portage rsync and distfiles),,,, lnx-bbc, requesttracker, and a lot of distro ISOs
22:14<fo0bar>80GB of crap, but I was only pushing about 5mbps on average
22:15<fo0bar>oh, and 2 dedicated servers donated to PHP for development
22:15|-|FireSlash [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:17<fo0bar>but probably the neatest thing I did was when RHL9 was released, it was first real distro release on bittorrent. I threw 4 machines into the mesh, and was pushing 120mbps :)
