02:56-!-mode/#linode [+l 368] by ChanServ
02:56<defaultname>is there a way to change the default page to the homepage html file?
02:56<grawity>where did you upload the HTML files?
02:56<defaultname>in /var/www/html/
02:57<grawity>so you probably have Apache configured to look in there when accessing as only
02:58<defaultname>I'm guessing I have to go into an apache.conf file to change it?
02:58<grawity>or access the website by the domain name which you configured
02:58<grawity>if the domain name itself is in DNS already
02:59<defaultname>I want to say that it is still 'processing' the dns to ip link
02:59<defaultname>when i click check
02:59<defaultname>it says Okay
02:59<defaultname>but I cannot reverse DNS or see my webpage

04:23<noobie>i would like to rent vps from you guys but still have couple of questions to ask, may i?
04:23<grawity>that's what the channel is for
04:24<noobie>i have no idea i thought its for customer support something but apparently its not lol
04:24<grawity>community support and discussions, technically
04:25<noobie>ah i see, just wondering can i run a MMOPRG on those $5 server?
04:25<grawity>sometimes employees wander by
04:25<grawity>if it's not explicitly forbidden by, then yeah
04:26<Woet>noobie: if its legal and the developer of it has allowed and released private servers, sure.
04:26<Woet>which seems unlikely.
04:26<noobie>but seems there are no windows system to install
04:26<grawity>that's why it's called Linode
04:26<grawity>while it's *possible* to get Windows Server running on it, it's not officially supported
04:27<noobie>oh i see
04:27<Woet>noobie: what game is it?
04:27<noobie>albion online
04:27<noobie>i just want to run a client
04:27<noobie>but the private server
04:28<Woet>noobie: nope, not legal.
04:28<Woet>8.2 The automatic establishment or registration of accounts is not permitted. Automated login is prohibited. Only the official clients and Apps provided by Sandbox Interactive may be used to connect to the servers. The User may not create, support, host, link or provide any other options, which can be used by another person to play the Game, such as server emulators.
04:28<grawity>sounds legal as long as you're installing the official client or app, then
04:29<Woet>if you actually want to play the game on a VPS, for whatever reason, sure
04:29<noobie>yeah i just want to play the game on vps
04:29<Woet>in a manual normal way
04:29<Ikaros>I must say this seems to be quite the unusual request...
04:30<Woet>you realise a VPS wont have a GPU right?
04:30<noobie>NO GPU? oh so disappointing
04:30<Woet>noobie: why do you want to play the game on a VPS?
04:31<Ikaros>What did you EXPECT, it's a SERVER.
04:31<noobie>so i cant run the game smoothly or even cant start the game?
04:31<Ikaros>It's not MEANT to have a GPU
04:31<Woet>noobie: why do you want to play the game on a VPS?
04:31<Ikaros>(and there goes my temper again...)

04:32<grawity>there might be some hosting companies which provide GPU (maybe those bitcoin-mining-friendly ones)
04:32<Woet>noobie: why do you want to play the game on a VPS?
04:32<grawity>or some dedicated-server hosts
04:33<grawity>but in general, VPSes have zero hardware graphics capability
04:33<Ikaros>As intended.
04:33<grawity>although if the UI is simple enough to run on CPU, then it'd work... slowly
04:33<noobie>just want my storage char separate from my other accounts
04:33<Ikaros>Oh one of those people...
04:33<grawity>after all, if it can render a desktop via VNC, then it can render anything else
04:33<grawity>but well
04:34<Woet>how about you just play the game legit so you dont have to hide your chars?
04:34<Ikaros>You're not going to have much luck there unfortunately.
04:34<grawity>using a VPS for that *does* sound a bit against the game's Terms of Service
04:34<Woet>jesus christ

04:34-!-steve_ is "realname" on #linode
04:34<Ikaros>Look, what we're saying is most places you go you're getting the same answer - it's either impossible to do or really, REALLY difficult.
04:35<Ikaros>Because that's not how servers are generally designed
04:35<noobie>yeah i understand
04:35<grawity>not impossible, just not something that VPS hosts bother with
04:35<Woet>and you shouldn't do it, because it's shady, unethical and most likely against the tos.
04:35<noobie>someone told me i could do that but im not pretty sure about it
04:37<noobie>i used to run a private server as well, but not on a vps on a dedicate server.
04:37<Woet>why not just play the game the way its intended to?
04:38<noobie>just want to make some cash out of it, lol
04:38<Ikaros>noobie don't risk it, imo, especially if they look at that as a ToS violation (in regards to the game), you'll come out of it the loser if that happens :x
04:39<noobie>i know some ppl play game manually and make money out of the game.
04:39<noobie>some of them are in the game currency business buy low and sell high
04:40<noobie>im not sure its illegal or not
04:40<rsdehart>noobie: the ToS will most likely answer that question explicitly
04:41<rsdehart>unfortunately "I didn't know" won't go very far if they come after you
04:41<noobie>ppl get sued for this?
04:41<Woet>of course it is
04:41<Woet>RMT is banned in every single game
04:41<Ikaros>At the very least, banned.
04:42<Woet>you know you can just read the ToS yourself right?
04:42<Woet>12.13 The sale or trading of Virtual Property and premium features outside of the opportunities the Game provides is prohibited.
04:42<noobie>yeah i usually just click accept and ignore the whole thing , too long for read lol
04:43<Woet>The User is not allowed to use the Game, the contents of the Game, or the Services in connection with trading of Game contents, kick-backs, reselling of Gold, or promotion competing products to the Services, unless specifically permitted by Sandbox Interactive.
04:43<Woet>to be honest, anyone with a brain knows stuff like that is illegal
04:43<Woet>and if you want to hide your storage account, you're very aware it is as well, else you wouldn't want to hide it.
04:44<noobie>yeah but in real life they just ban ppl, no body get sued anyway

04:45<noobie>yeah likely, but i never heard a real life example
04:45<noobie>maybe im to small lol
04:46<Ikaros>So you pull a TL;DR
04:46<Woet>getting banned should be a pretty good indicator you shouldnt be doing it..

10:09<Radhe>this server of my client
10:09<Radhe>and now say to me to manage it
10:09<Radhe>so please guide me where we can change it
10:10<Woet>why didnt you tell him you have no knowledge of server admin?
10:10<Radhe>SMTP detail on my end
10:10<Radhe>i have its SMTP details
10:11<Woet>dont recall talking about SMTP issues
10:11<Woet>did you perhaps mean SSH? its quite different
10:11<Radhe>SFTP detail
10:11<Woet>okay, so your client told you "please manage the server", right?
10:11<Woet>why didnt you tell him "sorry, i cant, i dont have knowledge of server admin"?
10:11<Radhe>only open
10:13<Radhe>and also when we try to open then it is also open with
10:13<ryu>you can also make the redirection rule in your .htaccess file
10:13<Woet>why didnt you tell him "sorry, i cant, i dont have knowledge of server admin"?
10:14<ryu>what are you trying to accomplish?

10:30<AZellers>Good day, is this the appropriate forum to inquire about an IP address being blocked from accessing a linode server (our website?)
10:30<dzho>Woet: what sort of concern do you expect us to have? it's not like it's surprising, and not like we can do anything about it. It sucks, but it happens far too much to get too worked up over.
10:30<Woet>i find it quite surprising
10:30<dzho>welcome to #linode
10:30<Woet>and we can question him so he doesnt do it again
10:30<Woet>instead of thinking its normal
10:31<@nbrewer>AZellers: you'd probably be better off submitting a support ticket - but what are you running into, exactly? is it just a specific IP address that can't reach your Linode?
10:31<Woet>and just helping him and get on our way
10:31<dzho>it's normal, but it's not normative.

10:31<AZellers>@nbrewer; that is correct. our external gateway is not making it through Linode's network to view our website located at Linode.
10:31<dzho>in the bigger picture, there is a push to eliminate sysadmins as much as possible, by rolling the job into "devops"
10:32<@nbrewer>if that's the case, i would recommend generating a set of MTR reports (from your Linode to the IP address, and the reverse) and submitting them via a support ticket.

13:11<MajObviousman>dzho: re sysadmin rolling into devop roles. That has always been the case, but now we have a different label. IMO quality sysadmins have a good handle on scripting to handle the weird tasks.
13:11<MajObviousman>so perhaps it's safer to say that good sysadmins are hipster devops

15:28<millisa>It's very similar to the digital ocean system you are coming from :)
15:28<millisa>They are vps's. Windows isn't supported, but some enterprising individuals have gotten it installed.

15:30-!-Guest21 [~oftc-webi@] has quit []
15:30<defaultname>I was wondering if someone could help me understand the hosts file
15:31<millisa>What about the hosts file do you need help understanding? It just maps names to ip addresses
15:31<defaultname>yeah but I am ready to host my website from that ip address
15:31<defaultname>originally the guide said to map to a name such as a planet or philospher
15:32<defaultname>The problem i am having is that when I type in the hard ip my website comes up
15:32<defaultname>but when i use the dns nothing
15:32<millisa>the hosts file doesn't help everyone else translate a name into an IP - that's what DNS is for.
15:33<millisa>What's the domain name?
15:33<grawity>1) DNS must have the correct mapping of domain -> IP, and 2) your webserver config must have the correct mapping of domain -> DocumentRoot
15:33<millisa>So that domain shows as having DNS located out at google. Did you make a record there that points to your ip?
15:34<defaultname>I used linodes dns manager last night
15:34<grawity>but the domain isn't hosted at linode
15:34<millisa>linode's dns manager would only help you if you had your domain pointed at linode's name servers.
15:35<defaultname>Under google I set the dns's registered hosts to my linodes ip address
15:36<millisa>under google's dns, do you see where you can create an 'A record'?
15:37<millisa>(also, feature request - have a buttons to add 5/10/25 life to your counters so it's easy to use your counters for non-standard games!)
15:38-!-acald3ron [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
15:39<defaultname>Yes it is under custom resource records
15:39<defaultname>And I was planning on it haha
15:39<millisa>(your IP shows up in the 'whois' output)
15:39-!-mode/#linode [+l 375] by ChanServ
15:39<millisa>So, if you see where to create an A record, you want to create a record for the base domain pointed at your IP (which looks like
15:40<millisa>you may also want an A record for (or a cname that points www to the main domain)
15:40<MajObviousman>defaultname is back
15:42<millisa>look at that, an A record! ( dig -t a @NS-CLOUD-C1.GOOGLEDOMAINS.COM )
15:42<millisa> works for me now
15:43-!-aquajojo_28 [~grupo.max@] has quit []
15:43<defaultname>Is there a reason that I wouldnt be using registered hosts?
15:43<defaultname>Thats what I originally had it under under hostname and my ipv4
15:44-!-mode/#linode [+l 374] by ChanServ
15:45<millisa>pretty sure 'registered hosts' is googledns's way of talking about glue records.
15:46<defaultname>so when you say a cname that points to the www in the domain
15:46<defaultname>i would create a cname that points to
15:47<millisa>there's not an automatic assumption that is also It's usually the case for most people and you have to set it up in dns. a cname is like an alias - it makes it so you only need to change the IP in one place if you move hosts
15:47<defaultname>so the first field being cname 1h
15:48<millisa>and now works for me
15:48<millisa>good job
15:48<Nivex>don't CNAME to the root of a zone. A CNAME is an alias for _all types_, so would then get an SOA, NS, MX (if they exist), etc.
15:48<defaultname>so by having a cname if my ip were to change i would need to change the value
15:48<defaultname>because the others point to that value using cname
15:51<millisa>Nivex's point is valid - you could consider making both the www and the base domain A records (so you'd have to change 2 places if you moved hosts). And then if you did future cnames you could point them at the www address
15:53<defaultname>so i changed the field to www a 1h
15:53<millisa>that'd address nivex's point. the overall way it looks to the end user should be about the same
15:55<defaultname>so now I am able to access my website from but not from I am guessing it still needs some time to point things
15:56<millisa>might just be a caching thing. if you are on windows, try restarting your 'dns cache' service. i see both working
15:56<millisa>it might be called 'dns client', i forget which.
15:57<defaultname>to clarify restart my pc's dns cache service not my server's
15:58<millisa>yeah. from what i can see, google's dns already has the 2 A records you setup
15:58<defaultname>I see it on my phone so i know that is working now
15:58<defaultname>that you so much
15:58<defaultname>thank you so much*
15:59<MajObviousman>maybe contemplate settling on a real nick?
15:59<millisa>as for the glue records question early - this is probably the simplest explanation I've found on what they are all about: (it might help you understand why it's probably not what you were looking for)
15:59<MajObviousman>seems like you're getting help here and might be back in the future
16:01<defaultname>MajObviousman would i use my own client to do that?

16:03<millisa>according to my irc client, you are 'correcthorsebat' and some crony named 'terystaple' likes hitting enter after everything you say
16:04<incorrecthorsebatterystapple>so would this save everytime?
16:04<incorrecthorsebatterystapple>to this website
16:04<MajObviousman>I do not believe it will
16:04<MajObviousman>but you can just do that /nick command again next time
16:04<MajObviousman>odds are high you'll want your own client if you decide to stick around
16:05<incorrecthorsebatterystapple>any good recommendations on clients for windows
16:05<millisa>mirc, hexchat, quassel?
16:06<MajObviousman>out of those, hexchat
16:06<MajObviousman>good compromise of little work and little suck
16:06<incorrecthorsebatterystapple>That was the one I was thinking of
16:07<incorrecthorsebatterystapple>myirc I need to register and is free for 30 days hexchat is opensource
16:07<MajObviousman>mirc is a boat anchor of 25 years of development. quassel is good for multiplexing clients together, but that introduces complication. If you like IRCing, you'll probably want to look at it in a few weeks or months
16:07<millisa>hexchat exists for win32/linux/osx - so you could stick to something familiar if you bounce around platforms
16:07*MajObviousman sticks with screen+irssi
16:08<MajObviousman>12 years of quality service so far
16:08<FluffyFoxeh><-- weechat + tmux because I'm a hipster
16:08<MajObviousman>odd usage of that term. Wouldn't it be the other way around?
16:08<Nivex>irssi + tmux ftw
16:09<Nivex>on windows, I concur with hexchat
16:09<zifnab>suggestion: pick a nick that isn't shit
16:09<MajObviousman>my nick suggestion was for humor
16:09<MajObviousman>nicks aren't forever, but it's wise to think of them as nearly
16:10<MajObviousman>also, it should be pointed out that using whole, simple English words such as xkcd suggests actually reduces entropy instead of increasing it
16:11<FluffyFoxeh>MajObviousman: nah because irssi and screen are too mainstream
16:11<MajObviousman>they are?
16:11<FluffyFoxeh>idk that seems to be the norm for people with that kind of CLI IRC client setup
16:11<zifnab>obviously you should do it in german
16:11<FluffyFoxeh>irssi has been around forever
16:11<Meyer_>I remember when irssi was new.
16:11<MajObviousman>it works. I've heard screen code is ugly AF and tmux is orders of magnitude better, so that's good incentive to move up

16:13<FluffyFoxeh>MajObviousman: yeah but that's a pain compared to having multiple independent "windows" :p
16:13<zifnab>i highly recommend irccloud
16:13<zifnab>it costs less than running a znc yourself
16:13<FluffyFoxeh>MajObviousman: or if you meant for launching programs into the background, I meant if I want to launch them and then disconnect
16:13<MajObviousman>well, if all you're doing on the thing running znc is znc, then yeah
16:13<FluffyFoxeh>like my Limnoria bot
16:14<MajObviousman>FluffyFoxeh: ahh. TMux allows disconnect/reconnect yes?
16:14*MajObviousman is still confused why you wouldn't just use tmux for all of that
16:14<FluffyFoxeh>tmux is less intuitive for programatically starting things and detaching from them, IMO
16:14<dwfreed>screen -dmS <name> <command>
16:14<FluffyFoxeh>compared to screen -dm
16:14<MajObviousman>well, ok
16:15<MajObviousman>in screen I know you can define windows and commands to run in those windows in screenrc. I guess I assumed tmux did that as well
16:15<FluffyFoxeh>I'm not saying you can't, I'm just saying I already knew how to do it with screen and didn't bother to find out how to do it with tmux
16:16<MajObviousman>fair enough

17:13-!-mode/#linode [+l 374] by ChanServ
17:13<gecco>or is there a way a sysadmin can tell KVM to use a specific mac address?
17:13<Nivex>nope. it's randomly generated and assigned as a unique identifier
17:14<MajObviousman>if you are needing a specific mac, you can create an aliased network adapter using macvlan
17:15<gecco>this is a linux 2.6v slack I think, its a hardware appliance I made virtual
17:15<MajObviousman>ooh, wow. Ok then. GLHF
17:15<gecco>its old as shit, but was physical, I was able to get it to run virtual, but I believe it uses the MAC addresses as verifiers to the serial it has internally, not sure I can change them
17:16<MajObviousman>you can assign another mac address to your interface
17:16<MajObviousman>good luck have fun

17:46<dwfreed>MajObviousman: changing your mac address from within the Linode would result in 0 network connectivity
17:46<dwfreed>MajObviousman: first check in the host filters is 'does the mac address match what it should be?'
17:46<MajObviousman>is what I figured
17:46<MajObviousman>but ya know, no harm in trying and discovering that for oneself
17:46<MajObviousman>builds character
17:47<dwfreed>also, with virtio, it's possible it's prevented from being changed
17:48<Eugene>Really? How?
17:49<Eugene>Its none of the hosts' business what the VM does, so if it thinks it can use a MAC I don't know how you would stop it from attempting to send that into the virtio NIC. I'm sure the host can(and does) just drop whatever garbage in ebtables, but the vtnet driver can do it too?

18:26<kdoggie>have there been recent changes to linode support policies?
18:27<kdoggie>i notice a new message when i call in
18:27<kdoggie>also a new message posted on top of the support ticket page
18:27<millisa>I haven't called in, in a while. What did it say? (I haven't heard about any new policies)

18:28<@cmullen>Hey kdoggie, we changed the phone system message up a little
18:28<kdoggie>and linode support has been amazing in the short time we have been here
18:28<kdoggie>hoping it has not changed
18:28<millisa>I don't remember the big message, but it sounds like the same policy they've had on support boundaries that they've always had
18:28<kdoggie>yeah its new...
18:29<kdoggie>i called in a bunch a few weeks ago and it was not there
18:29<@cmullen>technically the scope of our support is pretty limited. But our whole thing is we all have a little bit of an idea of what we are doing behind the wheel so we do our best to help when we can
18:29<@cmullen>it literally just changed
18:29<millisa>they probably were getting bogged down with requests that were outside their support boundary

18:29<kdoggie>thanks connor!
18:30<kdoggie>that was the most attractive part of the company
18:30<kdoggie>the support
18:30<kdoggie>well we will see how it goes
18:30<@cmullen>We definitely willing to help, but we thought it might be a good idea to put that message in there both because the authentication part is pretty important and can really slow down a phonecall if someone isn't ready to authenticate themselves
18:30<kdoggie>thanks again
18:31<@cmullen>and truth be told we love crushing linux issues, but there are totally time when we really run into issue that are things we just don't know enough about.
18:31-!-mode/#linode [+l 374] by ChanServ
18:31<kdoggie>for sure there are limits to support
18:31<@cmullen>so it doesn't hurt to put it out there that you know there are limitations to what we can do.
18:31<@cmullen>but don't let that stop you from reaching out.
18:31<kdoggie>thanks again for the honest answer
18:32*rsdehart calls up Linode support for tax advice
18:32<@cmullen>even if we aren't 100% with an answer, we usually know enough to be helpful
18:32<@cmullen>hahahahahaha #don'tpaythem
18:32<@cmullen>just kidding, pay your taxes plz
18:32<kdoggie>i hope the higher ups there realize what an asset you are to this company.

23:42<Passerby>From a remark in that thread: Why would AWStats be considered "outdated?"
23:43<dwfreed>it has some pretty significant gaps in releases
23:45<dwfreed>from the date of the post, the last release of awstats was 8 months before that; it wouldn't see another release for another year and a half
23:46<dwfreed>also things like Google Analytics tend to have more powerful insight possibilities
