01:16<joinusworld>Here are the photos of my problem :
01:30<synapt>... Lish is reporting max'd disk? o.O
01:30-!-synapt is now known as nate
01:38<joinusworld>I think it is allocated space, not USED space in my host (check 1st photo) . It has 40G space, and I am sure it cannot be used over 50% at this time. It cannot boot, so I cannot check by "df -h" command

01:41<nish>anyone here?
01:42<nish>I am after infor if anyone experienced attempts Failed password for root from port 15300 ssh2
01:43<kyhwana>nish: it's just the internet to brute force passwords on your box. It happens
01:43<nish>thanks; I just set up an instance; and when i try to restart apache get the above disallowing it
01:44<kyhwana>You can either do something like deploy fail2ban, move the ssh port to another port <1024 to get rid of the noise or roll public key logins only.
01:45<nish>just backtracking; ok ; i followed securng guide on linode
01:45<kyhwana>XY Problem here
01:45<kyhwana>What's your _actual_ problem and what have you tried to do to fix it?
01:46<nate>joinusworld: No I meant it looked like the host system itself is complaining about space I think
01:47<nish>kyhwana: well i just tried set up a basic vps with lamp using linode guide
01:49<nish>when i go to the step of restarting apache it didnt allow me to ; journalctl gave me the above error (perhaps due to brutal attack etc)
01:49<kyhwana>nish: that line you pasted isn't relevant to apache not restarting
01:50<nish>kyhwana: this is what i see : Job for apache2.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status apache2.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
01:53<nish>kyhwana: I can post journalctl | tail here ??
01:53<kyhwana>use a pastebin
01:59<nish>kyhwana: i got to admit I am not much into this game (or at least not for a while) and it is getting too demanding for me this now; the message anyhow I see there has some relevance at all is : Connection closed by
02:05<kyhwana>nish: you want to find the errors to do wo with apache
02:07<nish>kyhwana: that's right
02:10<nish>kyhwana: apache log says caught SIGTERM,

02:12-!-mode/#linode [+l 348] by ChanServ
02:15<nish>kyhwana: they dont seem like related just somethning like certain threads shutting down
02:16<nish>kyhwana: restart effort is not causing error messge there; have to look else where.
02:17<kyhwana>What does "sudo apache2ctl -t" say?
02:19<nish>kyhwana: thanks ; seems like some configuration typos on paths i made is causing it; got to look into it now; thanks

09:10<Darxus>I've been hosting a DNS mirror of for years, including over IPV6. For some time recently, I've been getting intermittant alerts that IPV6 DNS access is failing. I don't currently have access to another machine with IPV6, and I suspect the problem is linode's IPV6 connectivity. Anybody up for checking if you see the same thing via http, from somewhere other than freemont? Hitting it once a minute for a ...
09:10<Darxus>... day and logging if it's successful would probably be what I'd try. My email address is The IPv6 DNS test that's failing is looking up the A record for on the host
09:23<dzho>Darxus: the A record, or the AAAA record?

12:03<felixjet>what people use as 3 letter abbreviation for linode? lnd ?
12:04<Cromulent>I use a one letter abbreviation - 3 letters is just too much
12:04<felixjet>or n?
12:05<Cromulent>L would be my choice
12:05<felixjet>are you being sarcastic right?
12:05<Cromulent>no of course not I'm being perfectly serious /s

12:23<@mcintosh>if i'm abbreviating linode in some context (like a hostname) i would use "lin"

12:24-!-shingshang [~shingshan@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:24<Peng>I had to abbreviate it "L" in some of my rDNS because the manager limits the length :(
12:25*Peng exaggerated sigh
12:25<grawity>as in the person, or the software?
12:25-!-mode/#linode [+l 344] by ChanServ
12:26<@mcintosh>Peng: ours?
12:26<Peng>mcintosh: Yup! The HTML limits it to like 63 characters
12:27<@mcintosh>hm - i don't think it should do so
12:27<Peng>Which is also approximately how long you can make your rDNS before OFTC opers start threatening you with a flamethrower
12:27<@mcintosh>should allow 255 for the tld, and 60 for each label
12:27<@mcintosh>err 255 for the fqdn
12:27<grawity>do opers care about that
12:27<grawity>I thought most ircds just quietly ignore it
12:28<Peng>Some do!
12:28<Peng>mcintosh: 63 for each label, right?
12:28<@mcintosh>(should be)
12:28<Peng>mcintosh: <input name="hostname" id="hostname" type="text" maxlength="64" size="36" />
12:29<@mcintosh>oh no - I believe you that it's wrong heh
12:29<@mcintosh>I don't think it should limit like that though
12:31<bdube>lish also limits TERM and complains that "screen.xterm-256color" is too long
12:32<bdube>so I have to set a shorter TERM in my lish script
12:33<Peng>mcintosh: I half agree with you. Technically, it shouldn't be restricted, but honestly long rDNS is pretty awful.
12:33<Peng>Speaking as someone who uses long rDNS names that get truncated in some software...
12:34<grawity>bdube: I never quite got the point of tbh
12:34<grawity>bdube: I mean, the app is talking only to screen regardless of the outer terminal
12:34<grawity>bdube: so what's wrong with just "screen-256color"
12:35<bdube>grawity: I don't get it either, but if the restricted length is arbitrary, why restrict actual working TERM strings

12:36<grawity>(some distros would even carry patches for it)
12:36<grawity>so maybe your local version allows it, but lish's older and/or unpatched one doesn't
12:37<bdube>my local version not only allows it, but that's what set it in the first place
12:38<bdube>but oh well, I just set TERM in my local lish launch script and it's done

15:22<Peng>1.) I dunno, your choice. 2.) IPv4 and IPv6 are separate. For IPv6, Linode can use a static configuraton or SLAAC.
15:25<felixjet>but dhcp can't configure ipv6?
15:25<Peng>It's separate.
15:26<Peng>DHCPv6 is a thing, but Linode doesn't use it.
15:30<felixjet>what about the private ip btw?

15:32-!-mode/#linode [+l 342] by ChanServ
15:33<Peng>felixjet: If you have multiple IPv4 addresses, you'll need to use a static configuration, either writing it by hand or by enabling the Network Helper.
15:34<felixjet>Woet, what do you mean?
15:35<felixjet>Peng, so dhcp will be able to set only the public ip and not the private?
15:35<Peng>felixjet: Right
15:35<felixjet>right, thanks!
15:35<Peng>...I guess you could combine DHCP with a separate static configuration for your private IP, too...
15:36<felixjet>yeah, thats what i was doing to be honest
15:36<felixjet>but mixin them is weird
15:36<felixjet>i was hoping that dhcp could configure both
15:36<felixjet>but since it doesn't, maybe configuring all manually makes more sense

20:45<hojoongkim>hello question for you
20:46<hojoongkim>i bought linode instance and bought a domain from elsewhere. how do i do the dns thing? im not familiar with this
20:47-!-mode/#linode [+l 342] by ChanServ
20:47<@mcintosh>hello hojoongkim!
20:47<hojoongkim>can you guide me so i can take care of dns thing?
20:47<@mcintosh>the first thing you need to do is point your domain name towards Linode's nameservers -- you'll do this within your domain registrar's control panel for the domain
20:48<hojoongkim>i can change the nameserver1 & 2
20:48<@mcintosh>once you've done that, you add the domain name to your Linode account in the Linode DNS Manager (the link at the top when you log in) and you'll be able to start creating DNS records for the domain
20:49<@mcintosh>does it give you the option to add more fields? if it does, you want to do so to add all 5

20:51<@mcintosh>Add a domain zone

22:46<arooni>i need to restore a backup via linodes backup service from feb 26th
22:46<arooni>how can i do this?
22:47<react>usually I just start clicking around until i figure it out
22:48<UKn0Me>Secretly that's all "computer geniuses" do
22:48<react>looks like there is a backups tab per linode instance, I'd start there
22:48*react has never used the service
22:49<Cromulent>arooni: the linode backup only does daily, weekly and bi-weekly backups you can't just restore from an arbitary date
22:50<Cromulent>unless you have a snapshot
22:50<arooni>a ha
22:50<Cromulent>for that particular date
22:50<arooni>but it also looks like i need to have some place to restore it to
22:50<atian>arooni i'm sorry to inform you all your data is lost
22:50<Cromulent>yep you need to restore it to a linode
22:52<arooni>looks like restoring it from a week ago
22:52<arooni>would work just great
22:53<arooni>ok so i dont have enough disk space
22:53<arooni>so i need to create a new disk image for the restore, then restore it to that?
22:55<arooni>guess i'll need to resize my existing image
22:55<arooni>i took a manual snapshot first incase i fubar this all up
22:55<Cromulent>good plan
22:56<Cromulent>I always do a manual snapshot before I do anything major
22:56<arooni>is it kosher to shrink an existing image? how does linode do this without chopping off data
22:56<arooni>at the wrong place ?
22:57<atian>can't downsize
22:57<Cromulent>I've never shrunk a disk so I can't answer
22:57<atian>whats the fs type
22:58<arooni>well it just let me resize
22:58<arooni>should my new disk be ext4 or ext3
22:58<atian>well that's disappointing
22:58<arooni>using ubuntu lts server if it matters
22:59<arooni>why? you dont like to be wrong :P?
22:59<Cromulent>my current linode is quite new so uses ext4 I think
22:59<atian>i have never been able to do that
23:00<arooni>i dont think think ext4 is a bad idea; running it on my ubuntu laptop and no problems
23:00<arooni>trust me you dont want to downsize ; it usually means something bad happened lol
23:00<arooni>like it did to me
23:01<atian>arooni restore to a new linode
23:01<atian>no messing with disks
23:02<Cromulent>atian: problem with that is you new IP addresses
23:02<Cromulent>so then you need to mess with DNS
23:02<atian>Cromulent well not strictly switching to the new one
23:02<atian>do the diff between them
23:03<arooni>in general is resizing disks dangerous/illadvised?
23:03<Cromulent>I'd take a backup first but when I have to resize up it has always worked
23:04<Cromulent>like their was a storage upgrade a month or two ago and resizing up worked great
23:05<atian>Cromulent he can also ip swap
23:06<arooni>pretty convenient that the exact backup i need is exactly 7 days ago and was all set up for me
23:07<arooni>i was under theimpression that the backups were done nightly but i'm glad i know thats no longer the case

23:26<Cromulent>I'm using custom log locations and a different log for each site so I don't think it is - I'll read up on log rotate though it sounds like exactly what I need
23:27<react>I've forced myself to blog my snippets instead; chances are someone else will benefit
23:27<praetorian>feel free to do the same but with passwords too
23:27<praetorian>we'll remember them for you
23:27<FluffyFoxeh>Cromulent: yes, you will probably need only minor modifications to the default Apache logrotate script to accommodate that
23:28<FluffyFoxeh>praetorian: a distributed password manager :)
23:28<arlen>so lastpass?
23:28<FluffyFoxeh>this is the last time you will use this pass
23:28<praetorian>said sean spicer
23:28<arlen>cause someone else will use them and change everything
23:29<retro|blah>Are we playing password hangman now?
23:29*react high fives arlen
23:29<FluffyFoxeh>that sounds like fun
