09:24<pranav>Hi I am looking for assistance, for my existing purchase from Linode
09:24-!-mode/#linode [+l 365] by ChanServ
09:24<@nbrewer>pranav: feel free to ask your question.
09:25<pranav>Hi, are you from linode?
09:25<@nbrewer>yes. this is a community channel, but there are some Linode employees here as well.
09:26<@nbrewer>(Linode employees have '@' next to their names)
09:26<pranav>So I have bought a linode remote server. But im having trouble using that with a hosting platform..
09:27<@nbrewer>not entirely sure what that means..what's the hosting platform?
09:27<pranav>I tried cpanel, did all the required steps, but in the end when I go on the '10000' port. Connection is refused
09:28-!-eyepulp [~eyepulp@] has joined #linode
09:28-!-eyepulp is "eyepulp" on #linode
09:28<pranav>Tried other alternatives as well, like Webmin, same issue.
09:28<@nbrewer>cPanel installation is pretty straightforward. you just run a script. were you installing on a brand new CentOS Linode?
09:29<pranav>And for some of the platforms, like Sentos etc, it says that your server is not compatible
09:29<pranav>What script?
09:29<@nbrewer>cPanel installs using a script.
09:29<pranav>Well I dont have the paid version of cpanel
09:29-!-mode/#linode [+l 366] by ChanServ
09:29<pranav>Yes i tried running that script
09:29<@nbrewer>there is no free version of cPanel
09:30<pranav>15 day trial
09:30<pranav>Anyway, but currently im interested in using webmin. Since this is a test server
09:30<pranav>I wanted to uplaod my Wordpress site
09:31<pranav>After running all the commands, it even gives me a prompt that 'You can now connect to "ServerName:10000"
09:32<pranav>But when I go there, it says connection refused. If you have any other alternative suggestions for someother hosting platforms, im open to that as well
09:33<@nbrewer>it probably generated a self-signed cert for the login page, i know cPanel does. did you type https://your.ip.address:10000
09:34<@nbrewer>into your browser, i mean.
09:34<pranav>Yes i did that
09:34<pranav>you mean the 'purchased server's ip ' right?
09:35<pranav>the one i SSH into
09:35<@nbrewer>the IP address of the Linode, yes.
09:35<pranav>Yes did that
09:36<@nbrewer>ok, what operating system is the Linode running?
09:37<pranav>I'm not sure. I'm an employee given the details of the linode server, thats all
09:37<@nbrewer>pranav: could you run this command, and then paste the output?
09:37<@nbrewer>cat /etc/os-release
09:37<linbot>Please paste longer snippets over at and not in the channel
09:39<@nbrewer>ok..could i get a link?
09:42<pranav>You there?
09:42<pranav>I had sent you the details as you asked
09:42<@nbrewer>i would like to get the output of a few more commands
09:44<@nbrewer>sudo ufw status verbose
09:44<@nbrewer>sudo iptables -nvL
09:45<@nbrewer>sudo netstat -plantu

09:46-!-mode/#linode [+l 367] by ChanServ
09:46<pranav>My firewall is inactive
09:47<pranav>for the iptables
09:48<@nbrewer>doesn't look inactive to me
09:49<pranav>for the plantu command
09:49<pranav>but when i run ufw status, it says "Inactive"
09:49<@nbrewer>you're using iptables, not ufw
09:49<@nbrewer>and it looks like you never created a rule to allow connections on port 10000
09:50-!-descender [~heh@2406:3003:200b:12:6530:e8f2:e24b:6df0] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:50<pranav>not sure about that..
09:50<@nbrewer>which is why you can't connect to it.
09:50<pranav>okay, atleast we know the probelm
09:51-!-mode/#linode [+l 366] by ChanServ
09:52<pranav>It will be lot smoother if you could help me with which commands
09:52<pranav>IM not sure which one to start with

09:52-!-ArchNoob [] has joined #linode
09:53<Zimsky>I'm going to print the entire contents of and throw it through JamesTK's window in an attempt to get him to properly configure DNS
09:54<@nbrewer>iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT
09:54<@nbrewer>pranav: ^ that should work.
09:54-!-mode/#linode [+l 367] by ChanServ
09:54<Zimsky>unless you have other rules, in which case you should maybe insert, rather than append
09:55<linbot>New news from forum: Web Servers and Web App Development • Permissions error as root user? <>
09:56<pranav>Let me try tha
09:56<@nbrewer>Zimsky is right, you're probabl;y going to want to insert, not append
09:57<pranav>okay, and how to do that?
09:58<Zimsky>the -A flag specifies to append the rule to the INPUT chain, but what you should do is rather than appending to the list of rules, you should insert with -I
09:58<Zimsky>iptables works by the order in which rules are appended to a chain
09:58-!-descender [~heh@2406:3003:200b:12:a91d:1181:bed1:2708] has joined #linode
09:58-!-descender is "Chong Kai Xiong" on #linode
09:59<Zimsky>so if you have a rule that drops everything from any ip address, but you have a rule /after/ that which accepts packets from a particular address, it won't apply
09:59-!-mode/#linode [+l 368] by ChanServ
09:59<Zimsky>because the first rule matches
10:00<pranav>iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT
10:00<pranav>so is this the command?
10:00<@nbrewer>iptables -I INPUT 8 -p tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT
10:01<@nbrewer>^ that would make it the 8th rule in the input chain
10:01<pranav>oh perfect! that error is gone
10:02<Zimsky>stackexchange is your wizard magic friend
10:02<pranav>Thanks alot guys!
10:02<pranav>But I get this page
10:03<pranav>Error - Document follows This web server is running in SSL mode. Try the URL instead.
10:03<pranav>It runs on that link specified
10:03<@nbrewer>ok you're probably using http:// instead of https://
10:03<pranav>Oh true
10:05<pranav>Thanks again. If I have more issues further in the process, how do I contact you back?
10:05<@nbrewer>pranav: this is a community channel, so you can always feel free to ask your questions here.

12:58<ranjeet>hey team i can see pscan2 consuming my CPU to 100%. Please help me to resolve.
12:59-!-mode/#linode [+l 370] by ChanServ
12:59<synfinatic>ranjeet so I just googled "linux pscan2" and found this:
13:00<FluffyFoxeh>oh dear
13:00<synfinatic>looks like you've been hacked. Hopefully you have been using Linode's backup service to backup your files.
13:00<ranjeet>I have seen this but not able to solve
13:01<synfinatic>you have two choices: pay a security expert lots of $$$ to kick the bad guys out and figure out how they got in and fix it
13:01<ranjeet>I have not able to solve only as I am not expert
13:01<synfinatic>or wipe the box, re-install with the latest OS + patches and restore your data from backups
13:02<synfinatic>FluffyFoxeh +1
13:03<ranjeet>it would be great if you guys can help
13:04<ranjeet>Its very easy to re-install but I want to know to fix it.
13:05<synfinatic>99.99% of breakins are done using vulns which are known and 99% of those have fixes already available
13:05<synfinatic>so when you re-install with the latest version of the OS and all the latest updates that will most likely solve your problem
13:06<synfinatic>the next thing is to make sure you regularly update your system with the latest security patches
13:07<synfinatic>the fact they're running a ssh scanner tells me you're not important enough to waste a 0day, so that should be good enough
13:07<synfinatic>(assuming you forgot to mention your linode holds military/economic secrets :)
13:08<FluffyFoxeh>in which case find another job
13:09<synfinatic>ranjeet what linux distro?
13:09<ranjeet>centos 7
13:10<ranjeet>my all packages are update right now
13:10<ranjeet> yum update Loaded plugins: fastestmirror base | 3.6 kB 00:00:00 elk-client | 2.9 kB 00:00:00 epel/x86_64/metalink | 6

13:11-!-mode/#linode [+l 371] by ChanServ
13:11<ranjeet>run java application
13:11<ranjeet>we have installed tomcat
13:11<synfinatic>any software you installed not via yum?

13:12<ranjeet>Please see output of netstat -nalp

13:12<synfinatic>what userid is that sshd scanner running as?
13:12<ranjeet>ntp also
13:12-!-xxh9 [] has joined #linode
13:12-!-xxh9 is "Chris R" on #linode
13:13<synfinatic>there's your answer
13:13<synfinatic>that's how they got in
13:13<synfinatic>either a bug in tomcat or your java app
13:14<synfinatic>no what?
13:14<ranjeet>today it same error on other server too but when we re-install centos and deploy same application we did not see any such error
13:15<synfinatic>so your theory is the bad guys got in via some other means then tomcat/java and got root on your box and then decided to launch the ssh scanner as the tomcat user just to try to confuse you?
13:16<synfinatic>generally speaking that's not how it works in my experience. not for something like this
13:16<synfinatic>also your friends on the internet would probably appreciate it if you killed that scanner :)
13:18<ranjeet>i fed up from morning
13:18<ranjeet>did all the thing that i can do
13:18<ranjeet>but failed yo solve
13:19<synfinatic>unfortunately, running a secure server on the public internet is harder then it is to exploit them
13:20<synfinatic>if I had a magic wand to fix that, I'd be a rich rich man :)

13:35<millisa>you could probably argue that a vps is a form of cloud hosting.

15:20<@nbrewer>Sami1985: hello, feel free to ask your question.
15:21<Sami1985>I took a VPS from linode but it seems it doesn't have a dedicated pub IP
15:21-!-mode/#linode [+l 375] by ChanServ
15:21<Sami1985>is this true?
15:21<Sami1985>I have 1GB VPS, 5$ a month
15:21<@nbrewer>Sami1985: all Linodes have a dedicated IPv4 and IPv6 address.
15:21<Sami1985>How do I find out my IP so I can ssh to it?
15:22<nate>Sami1985: It's in your dashboard, from the moment you set it up
15:22<Sami1985>I also need Debian, during the wizard I was not asked!
15:22<Sami1985>Ok I will look in dashboard
15:22<@nbrewer>the 'Remote Access' tab in your Linode's Dashboard:
15:22<nate>Sami1985: You choose the system in the dashboard for that particular linode, you should see a tab relevant to installing a distro
15:23<@nbrewer>Sami1985: You choose which image you deploy. If you didn't, your Linode probably doesn't have an operating system deployed to it.
15:23<Sami1985>I did not see anything
15:23<Sami1985>The thing is already created.. I don't know its IP nor its distro
15:24<@nbrewer>You deploy the distro after you create it.
15:24<nate>Sami1985: Again, you choose that -after- you choose a datacenter
15:24<Sami1985>Yes I choose datacenter
15:24<Sami1985>I finished
15:24<nate>Sami1985: When you 'purchase' a linode, all you're doing is basically reserving an instance slot at a particular datacenter, after that you configure the linode, including it's distro, from it's management page
15:25<Sami1985>Ok let me try to figure it out my self

15:58<aliaB>Hey, anyone here ever encountered a problem connecting to the SQL server?
15:58<aliaB>"Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)'"
15:59<millisa>is your mysql server running?
15:59<nate>aliaB: Have you confirmed your mysql server is running? That it's configured to operate on a socket?
16:01<aliaB>No it doesnt run, thats the issue
16:01<aliaB>It was running fine till yesterday, suddenly seems to be a crash today
16:02<nate>So then check the log for what the issue was, start it back up, check to see if you need to scan anything for repairs
16:02<nate>and you should be able to connect to it again :P
16:03<millisa>it usually gives a hint in the logs - check dmesg, syslog to see if either say anything about being out of memory. check your mysql logs - depending on distribution, they'll be in different spots
16:05<aliaB>Where to check logs?
16:05<millisa>what distribution are you using?
16:06<aliaB>Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS
16:07<millisa>syslog is at /var/log/syslog, mysql is /var/log/mysql* I think?
16:11-!-larsdesigns [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
16:12<synfinatic> probably /var/log/mysql/error.log
16:12-!-mode/#linode [+l 376] by ChanServ
16:15<aliaB>Yes i checked them, but cant seem to find any out of memory or any reasonable hints to find the issue
16:16<millisa>when you try starting the mysql service, does it say anything then? or does it start?
16:19<aliaB>It doesnt give any error
16:19<aliaB>But when i try to check the status
16:19<aliaB>It says connect to server at 'localhost' failed
16:20<millisa>just to be sure I understand - when you try starting the mysql service, it shows nothing on the screen, shows nothing in the syslog, nothing in the /var/log/mysql/error.log?
16:22<aliaB>Thats right
16:23<aliaB>I tried running the same commands which were giving an error, but nothing in the logs
16:23<millisa>are you out of disk space?
16:24<aliaB>I even tried reinstalling mysql etc, but end up with the same issue again
16:26<millisa>To bpaste or - Could you paste the output of: apt list --installed|grep mysql
16:28<millisa>ok, same deal, paste the output of: tail --lines=25 /var/log/mysql/error.log
16:30<aliaB>InnoDB: Check that you do not already have another mysqld process using the same InnoDB data or log files.
16:30<aliaB>Gives me this error on a loop
16:30<millisa>that sounds like mysql is already running. go ahead and paste the logs.
16:31<millisa>paste: ps aux |grep mysql
16:32<aliaB>I had killed the processes before
16:32<millisa>so there is nothing when you do a ps aux|grep mysql?
16:32<aliaB>there are
16:33<aliaB>as in before i had killed them, that didnt work
16:33<millisa>try to stop mysql: /etc/init.d/mysql stop
16:34<millisa>or service mysql start (whichever way you normally use to stop)
16:34<millisa>make sure there are no mysql processes with 'ps aux |grep mysql' - if there's not, try starting it with service mysql start (or /etc/init.d/mysql start) and then check the /var/log/mysql/error.log. (paste the last dozen or so lines)
16:35<aliaB>Should i kill all of them?
16:35<millisa>er, don't kill any of them. use the init script..
16:36<millisa>if the init script doesn't get rid of the ones that are running, then we'll need to address that.
16:37<aliaB>sorry, not sure whats the init script
16:37<millisa> /etc/init.d/mysql stop or use: service mysql stop
16:39<aliaB>I stopped it, but i still see all those processes running with ps aux

17:24<millisa>great. lets get the old dirs and confs out of the way. mv /etc/mysql /etc/mysql.old
17:24-!-mode/#linode [+l 374] by ChanServ
17:25<millisa>and: mv /var/lib/mysql /var/lib/mysql.old
17:26<millisa>not 100% these are there, but if they are: mv /var/lib/mysql-files /var/lib/mysql-files.old and: mv /var/lib/mysql-keyring /var/lib/mysql-keyring.old
17:26<Vishal_>@millisa I am on Magento 2, now figuring out how to remove let's encypt ssl.
17:26<millisa>aliaB: and lets just move the mysql logs out of the way so we are sure we aren't looking at old ones: mv /var/log/mysql /var/log/mysql.old
17:26<aliaB>done both
17:27<millisa>now, make absolutely sure we have no mysql stuff running: ps aux|grep mysql
17:27<aliaB>yup, nothing running
17:28<millisa>ok, apt-get update
17:28<aliaB>only the grep command
17:28<millisa>actually, lets throw an 'apt-get clean' in front (if you already ran the update command it's fine, run it again after the clean command'
17:29<aliaB>done both
17:29<millisa>ok, lets give it a shot: apt-get install mysql-server
17:29<aliaB>fingers crossed
17:30<aliaB>Oh yes!
17:30<millisa>that sounds positive.
17:31<millisa>assuming you got through that. put the mysql client back: apt-get install mysql-client
17:31<aliaB>ok wait
17:32<aliaB>wait, something popped up
17:32<aliaB>the entire apt-get install mysql-server
17:33<millisa>hrm. looks like it depends on /etc/mysql/mysqlcnf already existing
17:34<aliaB>i had deleted that file few hours ago
17:34<aliaB>following some article
17:34<millisa>well, we moved the whole directory out of the way
17:35<aliaB>oh yeah
17:35<millisa>looking to see if there's a clean/easy way to put it back
17:35<aliaB>sure, thanks alot for helping
17:35<millisa>looks like mysql-common might be what puts it there.
17:36<aliaB>will run this?
17:36<aliaB>what about the stack link you found, should i give it a shot running those commands?
17:37<millisa>i'm assuming if we managed to get that removed and put back it'd probably recreate the directory - i just doubt it'll let you get rid of it without getting rid of lots of other things

17:38<millisa>if you do: apt-get remove mysql-common

17:39<millisa>if it just has the mysql-server/mysql-client packages listed, then go ahead and run it

17:39<millisa>oh. well that's not awful. say yes.
17:40<aliaB>ya done

17:41<aliaB>ah, same alternative path issue

17:43<millisa>mm. would rather just do one package at a time to keep troubleshooting simple.
17:43<millisa>try: apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" install --reinstall mysql-common
17:44<aliaB>E: Internal Error, No file name for mysql-common:amd64
17:46<millisa>same error if you do: apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" install mysql-common ?
17:47<aliaB>Same alternaive path errort
17:48<aliaB>maybe we can just install that file

17:56<aliaB>found anything?
17:57<millisa>only that other people have run into it
17:57<millisa>I guess try putting that /etc/mysql.old directory back and maybe it'll get past the error or at least hit an error that has a solution.
17:57<millisa>mv /etc/mysql.old /etc/mysql
17:58<millisa>(one of the pastes had what looked like a config file problem, so I guess we'll try to fix that)
17:58<aliaB>okay, did that
17:58<millisa>after putting the /etc/mysql dir back, try doing the: apt-get install mysql-common and paste the reults if it fails
17:59<MajObviousman>have you ever considered that your shit might be haunted?
17:59<aliaB>still the same alternative error
17:59*MajObviousman makes the sign of the cross over aliaB's system and moves on, shaking head
17:59<millisa>go ahead and paste it
18:00<millisa>not the same file
18:01<millisa>create the /etc/mysql/my.cnf.fallback file. try putting this in it (hopefully it's the same at 16.10):
18:02<millisa>on my system, my.cnf.fallback looks just like my.cnf
18:02<cnf>sshhh, it's ok
18:03<aliaB>you mean create the my.cnf file in alternative?
18:03<millisa>create the /etc/mysql/my.cnf.fallback file

18:21<millisa>well, if mysql-common succeeeded, try the apt-get install mysql-server
18:21<millisa>(and if it errors, paste the output)
18:24<aliaB>maybe i should just create that file mysql.cnf
18:25<millisa>I'm not sure; my one ubuntu box doesn't have it and install mysql-common/server/client don't create it

18:29<millisa>I've only found two mentions of that file - one on askubuntu, one on reddit.
18:30<millisa>I guess you could try just creating an empty one? touch /etc/mysql/mysql.cnf
18:32<aliaB>Yes now it installed without errors
18:32<aliaB>after creating the empty one
18:32<millisa>well, try the client then. apt-get install mysql-client
18:32<millisa>(as far as I know, the main conf is /etc/mysql/my.cnf, not sure what that other file is about)
18:32<aliaB>yes insalled that
18:33<millisa>is mysql running? ps aux |grep mysql
18:34<millisa>lets see that ps output in a paste
18:34<millisa>don't see any of the postinstall things running, so I guess that's good.
18:35<millisa>can you connect to it with the mysql command now?
