01:18<jayyers>i have phpmyadmin installed on my linode and when i try to go to the address it keeps tryin to get me to download a file and i have php and libapache2-mod-php4 installed anyone know why this is happening?
01:23<encode>jayyers: oh o - bad move
01:23<encode>phpmyadmin is a big red sign saying come root my server
01:24<encode>but that sounds like you dont have your mime type set correctly
01:24<encode>google for the correct mime type for php, and how to set it
01:25<jayyers>ive previously just used apt to install it and it worked so i dont understand why its different this time

10:38<pknetworks>I am a partner with and am insterested in running two additional servers, and woundering if the setup fee could be waved.

11:46<gpd>hmm ... hard disk no longer showing up in BIOS on parents computer - /me wonders if I am wasting my time trying to trouble hoot
11:54<tierra>caker: The DNS manager will import A records for "*" (wildcard) hostnames, but doesn't let you add the same records manually.
11:55<kvandivo_>"no one would ever want to do that manually..."
11:55|-|kvandivo_ changed nick to kvandivo
11:57<tierra>in most situations it is just dumb, but there are valid reasons for doing so, and it is valid syntax... for example, sites that setup username subdomains like
11:59[~]caker turns tasaro onto Peter Packet
11:59<@caker>tierra: huh .. I thought I made an exception for *
12:00|-|afv-13 [] has joined #linode
12:00<tierra>The following errors were generated:
12:00<tierra># Invalid hostname.
12:00[~]caker looks
12:02<@caker>tierra: mind trying * ?
12:03<tierra>that doesn't work either
12:03<@caker>ok, one moment
12:04<@caker>are wildcards useful for records other than A?
12:04<@caker>or should I restrict * for just A records?
12:04<tierra>I'm not aware of uses for * on records other than A/AAAA
12:05<@caker>ok .. try again with just * ?
12:05<tierra>ok, worked
12:09<npmr>perhaps MX
12:09<npmr>* CNAME @
12:14<npmr>from an actual zone i use:
12:14<npmr>* 43200 IN CNAME dorothy
12:15<@caker>that makes sense
12:15<npmr>*._tcp 43200 IN SRV 0 0 0 .
12:15<npmr>*._udp 43200 IN SRV 0 0 0 .
12:15<npmr>do you do SRV records at all?
12:16<@caker>npmr: the dns manager? it supports them, yes
12:18<npmr>i really wish browsers recognized this kind of record:
12:18<npmr> 43200 IN SRV 5 100 443 dorothy
12:18<npmr>_https._tcp.mail 43200 IN SRV 5 100 8443 dorothy
12:22<npmr>i'd rather use a _http._tcp.www SRV record than a www A record
