02:05<ausjke>eploy an Image Image See also: Deploying using StackScripts Deployment Disk Size MB 900 MB min 0 MB max Swap Disk
02:05<ausjke>it says 0MB max, so I use the default 0 for hard drive size to use it all
02:05<ausjke>then I got : Size must be a positive, non zero integer • Distribution requires a minimum size of 900MB
02:06<ausjke>0 MB max vs. Size non zero this a bug?
02:06<ausjke>normally I would expect 0 means using up all the disk
02:08<dcraig>what are you reading
02:11<Peng>No, zero means zero.
02:11<Peng>ausjke: Are you already using all of your disk space with other images? "0 MB max" means you have 0 MB of unallocated space.
02:12<ausjke>i deleted my old img, profile, everything and now trying to install a new os

02:13<Peng>FWIW, you can use the "Rebuild" link to automatically blow everything away & deploy a new image in one step.
02:14<ausjke>ok I had the disk allocated and thought deploy will let me pick that disk
02:14<ausjke>anyway I just removed that and it's ok

02:15-!-geralt [~oftc-webi@] has joined #linode
02:15<geralt>Hello, can someone please help me with this regex
02:16<geralt>if ($uri !~ "^/assets/images/") { }
02:16<geralt>I want it to be able to match any directory after '/assets/images/', however I've had no luck with it
02:18<dcraig>what about putting .* after images/ ?
02:18<Peng>geralt: Why not "location /assets/images/" ?
02:19-!-arooni-mobile [~arooni-mo@2602:306:ccf7:7530:2116:b7f7:8be0:eb5] has joined #linode
02:20<geralt>Peng: because there are multiple folders in there
02:20<geralt>meaning that I will need to write multiple statements
02:20<geralt>and that's not a good practice
02:21-!-ausjke [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:22<Peng>Yes, it is.
02:22<Peng>Alternately, what?
02:22<Peng>geralt: Oftentimes the least-bad way to write an Nginx config includes some copy and paste, or use of include.
02:22<Peng>"if" is rarely the least-bad way of doing something
02:23<geralt>well how else are you supposed to write it
02:23<geralt>what can you use instead of an if
02:23<Peng>Could you pastebin your config and explain what you're trying to do?
02:23<Peng>Alternately, do ^ in #nginx on Freenode.
02:24-!-Hazmat [] has quit []
02:24-!-Corti^carte [~PeterRabb@] has joined #linode
02:28<Peng>You want to serve .php files in /assets/images/?
02:29<Peng>geralt: Look, just create a separate "location /assets/images {}" block and don't paste the PHP stuff in it.
02:29-!-Gin [~oftc-webi@] has joined #linode
02:30<geralt>It only runs the PHP socket if it's not that directory
02:30<geralt>it's a security measure
02:30<geralt>because users can upload images with PHP in it, and nginx will run it
02:31<Peng>You said "no" but then agreed with me.
02:31-!-Gin [~oftc-webi@] has quit []
02:32<Peng>The users-uploading-php-in-images thing shouldn't be an issue because your location only applies to .php files, and users probably can't upload files with arbitrary extensions. Can they?
02:32<Peng>In any case, "location /assets/images/ {}" (oops, I left out the trailing / before, sorry)
02:33<nate>geralt: nginx doesn't identify files by their content, only their extension
02:33<Peng>Wait wait wait, I might be dumb. I think the regex match overrides the /assets/images/ match. Not certain.
02:33<nate>So if someone uploaded an .jpg image which was technically just a PHP file, your nginx wouldn't pass it through PHP unless you were doing some really poorly-configured stuff, it would however let people remotely load it (c99 shell, etc)
02:33<geralt>read this
02:34<nate>so if you're doing image uploading with PHP, making use of Imagemagick and it's ability to read the binary source to identify an image type is somewhat a good idea as well
02:35<+linbot>New news from forum: Email/SMTP Related Forum • Linode Postfix configuration <>
02:35<nate>geralt: That's from 2011, I'm almost -positive- nginx has long since fixed that
02:35<geralt>nate: possibly, however it doesn't hurt to add it
02:36<nate>True, I'd still probably rely on other methods as well if you're really doing images-only
02:37<nate>Specifically the Imagick::identifyImage() method
02:37<geralt>I'm going to take a look at that
02:38<geralt>Peng: Earlier did you said that this regex will match any dir with '/assets/images/' in it?
02:41<geralt>"I think the regex match overrides the /assets/images/ match. Not certain."
02:42-!-shingshang [] has joined #linode
02:46<Peng>location ^~ /assets/images/ {} would definitely work.
02:46<Peng>Without ^~ it would maybe work

06:22<Archon810>No, it's just Chrome
06:22<shinji257>No. Just a timeout message.
06:23<Peng>Sounds like you can't contact CloudFlare.
06:23<shinji257>I wonder if CloudFlare is having issues because I'm showing the same here.
06:25<shinji257>Maintenance currently in Los Angelos, CA Cloudflare location but it should be Re-routed.
06:26<shinji257>Still... I can't even get to yahoo. :/ Weird.
06:26*shinji257 starts doing traceroutes to identify the break.
06:27<kyhwana_>^ there's a malaysian ISP leaking BGP routes, if people are having routing issues
06:27<kyhwana_>So it's not cloudflare/linode/etc
06:27<shinji257>That was listed on Cloudflare's status page too
06:29<nate>Pretty shitty when some obscure ISP half way around the world can make a half-disaster for routing for US<->US
06:30<Archon810>Yeah that's insane
06:30<shinji257>That's the nature of BGP... It just takes one to poison the entire internet.
06:30<Archon810>On that note, my eyes are barely open.
06:31<shinji257>I work at CenturyLink where I'm seeing the same and anticipating an increase in our inbound volume I let the morning leads know about this so that we are aware on our end. XD

06:37<geralt>Is it just me, or does everyone keep getting disconnected?
06:38<shinji257>Just you
06:38<geralt>which of these modules do you use for interpreting php in cron '/usr/share/vim/vim74/autoload/phpcomplete.vim /usr/share/vim/vim74/compiler/php.vim /usr/share/vim/vim74/ftplugin/php.vim /usr/share/vim/vim74/indent/php.vim /usr/share/vim/vim74/syntax/php.vim'
06:38<shinji257>None of them?
06:38<geralt>then how can I get cron to run PHP, it's not working
06:39<shinji257>You should have a php5 cli binary installed.
06:39<shinji257>What distro are you running/
06:39<geralt>I do, but I can't locate it
06:39-!-burningdog [~oftc-webi@] has joined #linode
06:40<shinji257>Umm... try installing the php5-cli package
06:40<geralt>I have it installed
06:40<shinji257>Then use /usr/bin/php to run your script
06:41<geralt>okay I will try that
06:42<geralt>php5 is in bin as well
06:42<geralt>are you sure I use 'php'?
06:42-!-burningdog [~oftc-webi@] has quit []
06:43<kyhwana_>geralt: major BGP route leakage from malaysia
06:43<nate>geralt: If there is no /usr/bin/php then use /usr/bin/php5
06:43<shinji257>geralt: Yes. You can use php5 instead but in the end /usr/bin/php just symlinks to it anyways via alternatives.
06:43<geralt>kyhwana_: wut?
06:44<shinji257>geralt: You might be getting disconnected due to a bgp poisoning issue affecting everyone.
06:44<kyhwana_>geralt: you asked why everyone keeps getting disconnected?
06:44<shinji257>This is really one of many reasons why the internet needs to be rethought and rebuilt from the ground up.
06:45<kyhwana_>It's amazing it works at all
06:45<geralt>what's BGP
06:45-!-alhadi [] has quit [Quit: Connection closed for inactivity]
06:45<shinji257>Border Gateway Protocol. It is really what keeps this odd web of networks together.
06:45<shinji257>But if one of them goes awol then the whole thing can fall apart. Or at least part of it will.
06:46<geralt>is there an error log for cron?
06:46<shinji257>In ubuntu it is off by default but really you should first be trying to run the script from the commandline to ensure it works at all
06:47<shinji257>Run /usr/bin/php scriptname
06:47<geralt>okay thanks

06:54-!-PcJamesy [] has joined #linode
06:57<HoopyCat>geralt: does ../../../vendor/autoload.php exist?
06:57<geralt>i traversed it to check, too
06:58<HoopyCat>geralt: from the directory that cron is running from? (usually the user's home directory)
06:58<geralt>oh right, is that how it works
06:58<geralt>usually in PHP you require from the PHP script's location
06:58<HoopyCat>geralt: cron doesn't parse PHP scripts
06:59<nate>HoopyCat: require/include() should work relative to the -scripts- path admittedly, but I get a feeling he may be using the wrong user to do the cronjob (and running into a permissions issue)
06:59<nate>at which point the question becomes, what -exactly- did require_once() state?
06:59<HoopyCat>i did PHP once, but it was before they had such things as require_once so i dunno
06:59*shinji257 has a habit of using absolute paths with cron to avoid relative path issues...
07:00<nate>HoopyCat: Then you did PHP before it was PHP
07:00<geralt>PHP Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '../../../vendor/autoload.php'
07:00<nate>cause that's been there ever since the zend rewrite for 4.x
07:00<HoopyCat>nate: it was before 4.x, let's put it that way :-)
07:00<shinji257>Yea. Try changing that path to an absolute location and see if it starts to work.
07:00<nate>geralt: Nothing else? And what are the permissions on that file?
07:00<geralt>after it, it says '(include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear')'
07:01<geralt>perms are normal because www-data can run files from that dir tree on my site
07:01<nate>Ooo wait that's right, calling from a CLI changes what the base pwd is for relative paths doesn't it...
07:01<shinji257>It will use a different config.
07:03<nate>well it's not the config, it's the base-directory, in CLI mode, meaning it's probably trying to do it from the base /var/www or /srv/www path in CLI (or such since that's usually what a packaged www-data would be), rather than the location of the script itself
07:03<nate>forgot about that so yeah do what shinji257 said, use an absolute path
07:03<geralt>I'm confused
07:03<geralt>what am I meant to be doing?
07:03<geralt>what do you mean by 'absolute path'
07:04*HoopyCat ===
07:05<nate>geralt: Absolute paths are paths that run from the very base root
07:05<nate>ie; /var/www/
07:05<nate>is an absolute path
07:05<nate>from the very root of the filesystem
07:06<geralt>i see
07:06<geralt>I will try that, thanks
07:06<nate>Using things like "../foobar" or "foobar/file.txt" are called relative paths, they're treated "relative" to specific things
07:08<geralt>yes that fixed it
07:08<geralt>thanks :)
07:08-!-steveski [] has joined #linode
07:10<shinji257>My rule of thumb: When it doubt be absolute.
07:12<HoopyCat>which is my rule of thumb, too, but then nate was like "durrr you don't know PHP" ;-)
07:13<shinji257>I also learned to try to reference path locations that may change often by variable and locate those variables as close to the top of the script as you can.

11:09<shmoon>hey guys
11:10<shmoon>if I open tickets from 2 accounts for web server transfer from one account to another how much time will it take?
11:10-!-wicope [] has joined #linode
11:10<Ryon>shmoon: it doesn't really matter why?
11:10<Ryon>It takes as much time for support to answer.

11:10<Ryon>There's no downtime for that Linode, it's simply a question of transferring billing.
11:11<shmoon>i am selling my web app, so i thought i'll just transfer the server. if it can happen within few horus that'd be great as the buyer can pay today (friday)
11:11<shmoon>if not then he can pa on monday he won't be able to pay in th weekend
11:11<Ryon>it's usually a matter of minutes vs hours
11:11<shmoon>so if it can happen today (its 8:40pm here) then i can go ahead and start cleaning the server and open thetickets
11:12<Ryon>you can transfer the server while you're cleaning it
11:12<shmoon>ok so youre saying its a matter of changing billing details, but then it should show up in his accunt only, not mine
11:14<shmoon>alright, that's great to knwo
11:14<shmoon>thank you :)

19:23<Eugene>Windows will happily install off an IDE device, but it's hard to do much without a VGA console
19:23<@caker>yup .. it's coming :)
19:23<Eugene>You can do an unattended isntall, but it's difficult with an IDE device
19:23<trippeh>I see I have "pending upgrade to KVM" buttons now

19:23<@caker>an experimental graphical console is there now, actually - but you won't find it. It also disconnects after a few minutes - which we're still debugging...
19:24<Eugene>Using the Spice or VNC backend? ;-)

21:29<carport>wltjr: sure. I run bind9 locally, it all works fine here. On this linode, I've used the external resolvers in Fremont. So far, been generally OK -- that I'm aware. Only checking this closely oof late. Bind' too fat 4 me; will probably drop in something lighter like unbound if this becomes an issue.
21:29<wltjr>carport: I have seen the issues in atl for going on a week or so, finally switched away the other day, but should have long ago for other reasons
21:30-!-wheatie is now known as Guest1482
21:30<wltjr>carport: and that was with 2600:3c02::2
21:31<carport>wltjr: I'll see what I learn from the ticket. Out of the box response was (1) don't actually READ the ticket, and (2) call it 'unique to your linode'. We're hoping for "forward movement" on the issue ;-)

21:33<wltjr>carport: it was to inconsisent I never opened a ticket, likely not an easy one, if you have other means not sure I would bother to much with the ticket
21:34<carport>wltjr: so far, it's been consistent for the couple of days of testing. only with 2600:3c02::2. and it's still a problem right now. can't say much beyond that.
21:36<wltjr>carport: it might have been consistent in atl a well with 2600:3c02::2, I did comment it out in one system, but even the didnt' work at times, so I switched away entirely
21:38<carport>noted. haven't seen any problems with the ipv4 addy. i'd assumed that linode's ns's would be more stable than the linode itself, for vanilla usage, anyway ... mebbe not sot so much. putting some probes in place and will let em chug away for a couple of days.
21:40<carport>Aha! The Minions-in-Charge have confirmed the problem and are on the case! progress. yay.
21:40<@caker>that was me, if that counts for anything :)
21:41<carport>Yes, I saw. Was just being polite-ish and trying not to throw anyone under the bus :-)
21:42<wltjr>if it counts for anything, I kicked myself in the nutz upgrading a linode to kvm without updating my custom kernel from xen :P
21:42<arlen>tradebees: under the rescue tab
21:42<tradebees>arlen: thanks
21:42<@caker>our kernel + init=/bin/bash + mount -o remount,rw /
21:42<@caker>+ lish console, ofc
21:43<wltjr>still having to add back more stuff to my kernels, I ran xen years ago, but with nfs root, so had tiny tiny kernels, no block, etc just net stuff, and same when I migrated to kvm
21:43<wltjr>I was using lish, I just reverted to using linode kernel till I get my act together... building a custom one locally on my own hardware, which I have extra from no longer having physical servers in a local dc as of nov 14
21:44<carport>wltjr: Just discovered the KVM option today ... still all-Xen here locally. haven't quite figured out if a switch actually does anything for me.
21:45<wltjr>carport: I am happy for it, I had switched to it in my own cloud almost 2yrs ago, but its no more, but do run kvm locally for other stuff
21:45<Peng>Have you been itching to run Windows ME? Do you like speeeed?
21:47<Ikaros>KVM? Yeah. I'm still very wary of making the jump for it...I've got plenty KVM experience as several of my other servers are KVM-based virtualization, I'm just a little reluctant right now to hit the switch on any of my least for now.
21:47<Ikaros>Don't necessarily feel I need to rush this...and in fact would be a bad idea probably for me to rush right into it anyway.
21:47<wltjr>if you run custom kernels just update before pressing button
21:47*wltjr note to self...
21:48-!-calvinx [~calvin@] has joined #linode
21:48<Ikaros>Heh, I run a custom kernel on at least one of mine, and iirc I flipped the various KVM and virtualization bits to 'on' in it.
21:48<wltjr>also have to change from xvda to sda and pass console=ttys0
21:48<calvinx>pv-grub-x86_64 is deprecated when I upgraded to use KVM. Is there a guide on how to transit to grub2?
21:49<wltjr>with xen just had to pass root and ro, no other options, kvm wants console or no output I was like wtf is up with lish... and it was me...
21:50<Peng>I've said it before, but it's nice that DNSMasq handles it smoothly if some of your resolvers are down.
