00:19<Purvesh>Does you all plan provide root access/ssh access?
00:20<MrPPS>All plans provide you a full virtual server
00:20<MrPPS>Which includes root access + ssh + whatever else you install yourself
00:20<AlexMax>what about root access to the virual server host?
00:20<AlexMax>(jk :P)
00:20<Purvesh>Are those included with cPanel?
00:21<MrPPS>Purvesh: cPanel isn't included by default; these are unmanaged/bare bones server installs
00:21<MrPPS>You are welcome to install cPanel yourself if you have a license for it, of course
00:22<Purvesh>Thanks for your information

05:02<Pep>hey guys
05:02<Pep>is it possible to get extra ip's?
05:03-!-mode/#linode [+l 368] by ChanServ
05:05<linbot>Each Linode comes with 1 public IPv4 address and 1 public IPv6 address. Additional IPv4 addresses are $ 1 per month, and require technical justification. A /64 or /56 of IPv6 can be routed to your Linode at no charge.
05:05<nate>IPv4? Technically yes, but it requires significantly decent reasoning
05:06<ponas>I'm not even sure how to justify that these days
05:08-!-larsdesigns [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
05:08-!-mode/#linode [+l 367] by ChanServ
05:08<Pep>i'll be running 3 distinct dns servers
05:09<Pep>i guess it's easier to just buy 3 linodes then
05:09<Peng>I don't suppose going IPv6 only is practical
05:09<Pep>it'll be ipv4 and ipv6
05:10<Pep>because i need to server both types of clients
05:10<Peng>As does everyone, outside of certain specialized circumstances.
05:10<Peng>You know Linode can do secondary DNS, right?
05:11<Pep>how do you mean?
05:11<Peng>Linode provides secondary DNS hosting.
05:12<Pep>is that on their page somewhere?
05:12<Pep>ahh thankjs
05:12<Pep>oh ok, that's probably not going to work for me
05:12<Peng>Why not?
05:12<Peng>If you don't mind, what *are* you doing? 3 DNS servers!?
05:12<Pep>basically it's a dns ad blocker
05:13<Pep>each server has varying grades of agresiveness
05:13<Peng>That actually makes sense.
05:13<Pep>i have scripts which colate the hostnames etc for dnsmasq
05:14<Pep>although i'm a bit confused about how t-mobile US is going to handle it...
05:14<Pep>basically they switched to a ipv6 only stack
05:14-!-lgv is now known as skule
05:14<Pep>if the phone resolves an ipv4 only domain, it resolves as a nat'd address on their nat64gw
05:15<Pep>so directing to my dns it will resolve ipv4 only or a mapped ipv4 address which a t-mobile phone won't be able to route :/
05:18<Pep> anyway any rec omendations on the best linode location to serve most of the US with a secondary airm to keep latency for europe and then asia lower
05:18<Pep>i guess east coast?
05:19<Peng>You can't have low latency to the entire world with one location. :P
05:19<Pep>yeah of course :)
05:19<Pep>but in that order US, europe, asia
05:19<Pep>i guess east coast is the best spot?
05:19<Peng>Ignoring Asia, yes.
05:20<Peng>Your use case actually makes sense, more or less (i'm not personally a big fan of DNS-based blocking) but i have no idea if Linode is willing to hand out IPv4 IPs for DNS projects.
05:21<Peng>You realize long-distance DNS is also problematic vis-a-vis CDNs
05:22<Pep>but this is for mobile clients
05:22<Pep>and they won't notice much

13:47<zifnab>was this you?
13:47<zifnab>i hope not, i didn't bail you out of jail
13:50<millisa>The volume limit per linode is 8? I'm getting " Couldn't find room in the most recently-booted config profile for this volume. Please add this volume to your configuration profile manually." when attaching volume 7
13:51<dwfreed>millisa: assumes you have no local disks
13:51<millisa>The 8 limit is total block devices, including the local disk/swap?
13:51<dwfreed>presumably yes
13:51<dwfreed>you can boot a Linode with just BS devices
13:51<Woet>bullshit devices
13:51<millisa>I missed that aspect. that is very nifty

13:52<millisa>linode upgrades get much more interesting
13:52<zifnab>yeah, should be able to do it live?
13:52<zifnab>or, close to live*
13:52<zifnab>i was actually thinking STONITH
13:52<millisa>it still may want to move you to a new host I'm assuming
13:53<dwfreed>spin a new linode, unmount your data volume on the old, mount it on the new
13:53<zifnab>well, just add a new box, detach the disk, attach it in the new place
13:53<millisa>still, migration is as slow as your disk data it moves . .if you have no local disk data to move, the downtime might only be a few moments, even on huge cpu nodes?
13:53<zifnab>and boot
13:53<zifnab>test it out
13:53<millisa>and here I thought I was only going to spin up 1 test newark node.
13:54<dwfreed>5 nodes and 10 hours later, you realize it's almost midnight and you haven't eaten yet
13:54<millisa>i have some dehydrated bacon in reach.
13:55<zifnab>scsi backend? /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-0Linode_Volume_root.

13:58<zifnab>also, is 'reboot into rescue mode' not supported until you do a deploy?
13:59<dwfreed>technically, yes
13:59<zifnab>oh, it requires local disks
13:59<dwfreed>you can, however, make a config profile that consists of the finnix iso and initrd
14:00<zifnab>k, well, time to try this

14:07<zifnab>well, here goes nothing
14:10<zifnab>i'm happy, i've booted from a volume
14:11<zifnab>with a 24gb swap image
14:11*millisa has also booted from a block store volume. centos7.
14:12<zifnab>this was a ubuntu cloudimg
14:12<zifnab>i mean, its not successful
14:12<zifnab>but who's counting
14:13<millisa>deployed a 2gb image of centos7 to a local disk, booted a finnix config profile that had the local and block store, then dd'd the local to the block store. rebooted to a new profile with just the block store as /dev/sda and still using the local swap

14:22<millisa>does the bottom 'Blocks/sec' IO graph on a linode's dashboard only account for local storage io?

14:24<@peaton>zifnab: are you saying you saved a config in the new manager and it removed the volume from the config on the classic manager?
14:24<zifnab>i...think so? let me retry to verify
14:24<@peaton>kk, I wouldn't be suprised
14:24<zifnab>sorry, i'm clicking too many buttons atm
14:24<@peaton>The new manager / api really aren't aware of block storage at all
14:24<@peaton>(yet) :D
14:24<@peaton>I'll make an issue for the attaching multiple volumes bug, thank you
14:25<@mcintosh>i couldn't reproduce that fwiw
14:25<zifnab>it did not this time around
14:25<zifnab>so, i'm not sure what i did
14:25<@peaton>the multiple volumes bug mcintosh?
14:25<@mcintosh>indeed, but easily possible i was doing something different
14:25<zifnab>i am, however, unable to attach volumes from the volumes page to this linode
14:25<zifnab>it spins up an error page, assuming you guys have logs somewhere
14:26<zifnab>repro steps: create instance, remove swap, create volume, select instance in 'attach', get error page
14:26<zifnab>you can add it in the config just fine though
14:26<linbot>New news from forum: Current Betas • Linode Block Storage - Early Access <>
14:28<zifnab>unsuprisingly - volumes are ~2/3 the speed of local ssds

14:29<zifnab>guessing that depends on a ton of arbitrary factors

14:31<zifnab>also, unsuprisingly
14:31<zifnab>if i have 7 volumes and raid0 them

14:34<millisa>also unsurprising - linodes backups of a no-local-disk linode works just like they said (it doesn't backup). but on the plus side, it doesn't error; just says 'No images to back up' when you try it :)
14:34<zifnab>can't tell if this is actually faster or not
14:35<@caker>thanks for messing with this millisa - much appreciated

14:36<zifnab>mdstat is angry
14:36<zifnab>whoops killed all the volumes
14:37<zifnab>k, actual work time
14:38<millisa>like 'rescue->rescue mode', 'rescue->reset root password' doesn't work with a block store only linode.
14:41<millisa>resize of a 1024 linode to a 2048 linode, block store only, took ~1 min from it shutting down to me clicking the boot button. and it worked just fine

17:31<hdb2>hey everyone - so I'm looking at moving my company's linode account to hourly billing. I'm reading all of the info and it seems pretty straight-forward but I wanted to ask: has anyone run into any "gotchas"? (most of our linodes are simple web servers but we have a few large db servers)
17:35<millisa>there were a few folks that had some good prepay annual deals; unless you have one of those, there's probably not going to be a difference
17:36<millisa>when you spinup a new node, the old non-hourly stuff would immediately bill you for what was remaining in the month I think?
17:36<millisa>so if you'd spin up a node, spin it down a day later, you'd get this weird set of bill/credit things on the credit card. that goes away with hourly since you just pay for the hours its up
17:37<millisa>well, hours it is provisioned.
17:37<hdb2>millisa: yes, the one-off bills are the main reason I want to change it. since we don't have any annual deals, hourly billing looks like a good way to go. thanks for chiming in!
17:37<millisa>you also get access to the high memory instances
17:38<millisa>the cheap $5 instance was on hourly only, too, I think?
17:38<hdb2>millisa: yea, the high-memory stuff looks good too :)
17:38-!-Guest2402 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
17:39<millisa>unless it changed from the last one I did, I think it tells you how much it's crediting your account when it converts to hourly

19:03<irCurts>Howdy, I am having problems getting the results I wantes. I am inexperienced and am not even sure I understand well enough to phrase a lot of smart questions yet. I am trying to do an ubuntu 16.04lts based LAMP stack then follow it up with a drupal 8 install.
19:04<irCurts>I been at this for about 5 or 6 days now. I have tried both using guides as well as stack scripts. always some issue though.
19:04<millisa>sounds like a reasonable thing. what are you having issues with?
19:04-!-DrJ [] has quit [Quit: Bye]
19:04-!-mode/#linode [+l 370] by ChanServ
19:05<irCurts>most recent off a stack script promissing both, can't seem to sort out clean URLs
19:05<irCurts>after trying for some hours to read docs and sort it... I choose continue anyways and it fails with the database stage.
19:07<millisa>are you getting a specific error?
19:07<irCurts>none that I recorded for reference... but yes.
19:08<irCurts>Kind of what I am hoping to find in here is someone to to private chat with and kind of hold my hand through the whole process.... big ask huh?
19:08<millisa>Yeah, you probably won't get that.
19:08<millisa>but if you start with something like this guide:
19:08<millisa>and then get stuck at a step, you can likely give the specific error and spot you are stuck at and someone would have input
19:08<irCurts>I get though that well enough to see the apache2 page and a phpinfo()
19:09<millisa>what about the optional part where it has you do a phptest that connects to the database?
19:09<irCurts>I have had that work for me also.
19:09<millisa>ok, that sounds like you were getting throught he lamp stack setup ok. if it was saying the db connection was successful, you are threw most of the hard parts
19:11<millisa>Did you move on to this guide after that:
19:11<irCurts>I may of screwed up stuff trying to sort the stupid clean urls. After visting install.php, set language, test. fails clear urls
19:11<irCurts>yep the very ones I follow
19:11<irCurts>both of those.
19:12<irCurts>once I was getting some super weird error lemme check my web search history for it.
19:14<irCurts>handle($request); $response->send(); $kernel->terminate($request, $response);
19:14-!-DrJ [] has joined #linode
19:14-!-DrJ is "Bacon" on #linode
19:15<millisa>that was showing up on the 'verify requirements' page during the initial drupal setup?
19:15<irCurts>I got it both when following guides as well as with stackscript install
19:16<irCurts>no... that is on some failed attempts where I get that instead of the instal.php dialog I expect
19:16<millisa>that just looks like php not getting processed.
19:16-!-mode/#linode [+l 371] by ChanServ
19:16<irCurts>Yeah... what my searches kind of say about it.
19:17<millisa>why don't you go through that ubuntu16.04 setup guide again. get it to the point through the optional test where it says that the database connection was successful.
19:17<irCurts>should I go after some other CMS than Drupal? (NOT WP)
19:17<millisa>if you get stuck in that guide, stop, hop in here and ask about the specific step you are stuck on. I'm wagering you'll get through it fine.
19:18<millisa>then go through that second doc and do the same. if you get stuck, stop where you are stuck and ask in here while you are in a state that we can check things, look at logs, etc.
19:18<irCurts>LAMP is pretty easy. all of it.
19:18<millisa>My gut feeling is your cleanurl issue was probably just mod rewrite not being installed or not running (but couldn't say for sure without some log entries or something to go with it)
19:19<millisa>the other error, I'm wagering won't come up if you can get through that initial lamp guide and have the php test work correctly
19:19<irCurts>I was soooo careful each time. I know that mod rewrite can be weird from past experiences (shared hosting accounts)
19:20<irCurts>ok im out of here to give it another go. thanks for your time :))
19:20<millisa>sure thing. hop back in here if you get stuck on one of those guides

20:18<millisa>your hosts file is just going to be something your linode looks at when doing it's own name lookups. It shouldn't matter for your lamp stack or drupal setup.

20:54<irCurts>Ok this may be one part of the process where I got messed up...
20:54<millisa>What part is that?
20:54<irCurts> configure virtual hosts.
20:54<irCurts>2. blah blah and add a Directory block before </VirtualHost>:
20:55<irCurts>that is not clear to me.
20:56<millisa>hm. that actually looks off to me.
20:56<irCurts>literally before the line that is </VirtualHost>: insert that block?
20:56<irCurts>yeah.. I tried it that way once... fail fail fail...
20:56<millisa>I don't know that it particularly matters for what they are using it for, but I usually put a directory block inside the <virtualhost> </virtualhost> section if it's just for that specific site.
20:57<millisa>for that matter, i usually put it right below the 'DocumentRoot' so i can eyeball the paths and make sure they match up
20:57<irCurts>I got errors doing that I think. specifically "silly dont put that inside the other thing likethat."
20:58<millisa>it's valid inside the virtualhost context:
20:58<irCurts>ok ty ima have a look at that
20:59<irCurts>so basically I merge that block off the guide into my .com.conf file? I dont really add whole blocks?
21:03<millisa>something more like this:
21:03<millisa>(that includes the rewrite and allowoverride stuff from the drupal doc)
21:04<irCurts>supah cool :)) ty vm
21:06<millisa>er, without the duplicated 'require all granted'
21:06<irCurts>ok to be clear. that replaces all the stuff in 000-default.conf that I coppied to
21:07<irCurts>like if I did nano paste that in the blank save it.. im done with this step?
21:07<millisa>probably. the /etc/apache2/sites-available/somesitnname.conf is mostly just going to contain a virtualhost block (or two, one for http, one for https)
21:08<millisa>that copy step was probably just to give you something to work from
21:08<millisa>in step4 of that doc is where you enable that site (it'll symlink the config file you just made into a place that apache is going to read when it starts/loads config)
21:09-!-eyepulp [] has joined #linode
21:09-!-eyepulp is "eyepulp" on #linode
21:09<irCurts>yes one <directory> </dir> pair and one <virtual host pair> do I leave those in or overwrite them?
21:09<irCurts>maybe that question is more clear? I dunno
21:09-!-mode/#linode [+l 369] by ChanServ
21:10<millisa>in your sitename.tld.conf file it usually will just start with <virtualhost> have some directives, have that <directory> </directory> block, then end with a </virtualhost>
21:10<millisa>(You are building a config file that's eventually going to get included by apache when it reloads config/restarts)
21:11<millisa>it lets you be organized, you could have multiple sites in their own sitename.tld.conf dirs that you enable/disable to run on this same server.
21:11<irCurts>my confusion or qustion id driven by the step cp /....../ 000_default to
21:11<millisa>that's just there to give you a skeleton to work from
21:15<irCurts>thanks so much for merging those lamp and drupal .com.conf for me :))

21:18<irCurts>bleah. I seen this before.
21:19<irCurts>Job for apache2.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status apache2.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
21:19<millisa>probably a typo in the config somewhere.
21:19<millisa>if you do an 'apachectl -t' it might help you spot it
21:24<irCurts>hah! I ran sudo a2enmod rewrite then tried to restart apache2 and it worked.
21:25<millisa>I guess it's not until that drupal doc that they have you enable that module
21:25<irCurts>it said this was the error
21:25<irCurts>Invalid command 'RewriteEngine'
21:26<millisa>we skipped ahead by adding in those directives from the drupal doc (and it's fine, you figured it out)
21:26<irCurts>on on to steps M and P of L A M P

23:19<sof-tech>wordpress database connection to discuss
23:19-!-mode/#linode [+l 370] by ChanServ
23:21<sof-tech>i am moving from DO because of crash of PHP for worpress sites I have over there. Is any similar errors is occuring on Linode?
23:22<millisa>It'd depend why your stuff was having errors there. There's no inherent issue with php or wordpress sites running at linode (not at DO either)
23:25<sof-tech>I am not the only , many are facing this "cannot establish database connection error" actually once the Droplet is rebooted it works fine for 1 week or days suddenly the site crashes again and needto reboot
23:25<sof-tech>I have deployed all trouble shooting possible, monitaring by Jetpack also
23:25<millisa>that sounds like the database service itself is dropping. that can happen in an out of memory condition.
23:26<sof-tech>I upgraded from 1 GB to 4gb
23:26<millisa>on the plus side, at linode, you get more memory at the same price as DO, which might help you some
23:26<sof-tech>but still consist
23:26<sof-tech>even on shared hosting I did not face such error
23:27<millisa>shared hosting probably had a separate database service that was monitored by the shared hosting provider.
23:28<millisa>(I'm not trying to discourage you from trying/moving to linode, I'm just concerned that you might run into the same issue if you aren't looking at the root cause)
23:28<millisa>if you just restarted the mysql service rather than reboot, would that fix the issue?
23:28<sof-tech>the root is cause is not possible to determine it actually
23:28<millisa>That is unlikely.
23:29<millisa>If you have shell access to the system, you can figure out what's causing it. it'd be logged in syslog or demsg
23:29<millisa>er, dmesg
23:29<sof-tech>for your Q mysql service RESTART yes I tried but id doens not fix
23:29<sof-tech>reboot is needed
23:30<sof-tech>can you provide how steps to do on Shell
23:30<sof-tech>I have access
23:30<millisa>At Linode? Or DO?
23:31<millisa>This would get you a console:

23:33<sof-tech>other sites that are HTML arfe fine
23:33<sof-tech>REDHAT 6.8
23:34<millisa>to restart the mysql service it'd be: /etc/init.d/mysqld restart
23:35<millisa>if you are running apache for a web service, you can restart it with: /etc/init.d/httpd restart
23:35<sof-tech>I tried Stop service and restart
23:35<sof-tech>no effect
23:35<millisa>the issue is happening right now?
23:36<sof-tech>sometimes with no explanation
23:36<Peng>There is an explanatio, it just has to be found :D
23:36<sof-tech>it could take as 1 month as 1 week
23:36<sof-tech>since no error
23:38<millisa>when it happens next, you likely want to check dmesg, check /var/log/messages, check /var/log/mysqld.log
23:38<sof-tech>any way I am moving to Linode for 2 reasons * Memory cost and Japan DATACENTER LOCATION
23:38<millisa>unless your system is having disk issues, something will show up in one of them
23:38<sof-tech>MORE explanation about disk issue please
23:38<millisa>Sounds good to me. I like linode.
23:39<millisa>Unless your system cannot write to the disk due to a hardware issue, it will log something about the error. There's never 'not an explanation'. And even in those cases where nothing is logged, if you can get on the console, it should show something there.
23:40<sof-tech>i will try to see that by checking logs
23:40<millisa>I'd put money you are running into an out of memory condition.
23:40<sof-tech>the problem is I have clients that do not have to get ther WP site down
23:41<sof-tech>I am deploying reboot as fast as possible
23:41<millisa>What can happen is one of those sites gets a sudden burst of traffic, or a bot, or some scanner that hits lots of php pages. Your web service allocates a lot of memory and runs out, and then the system has to pick something to kill off to keep the system up. It's probably picking the mysql service.
23:42<sof-tech>YEAP Thank you mellissa for this precious help and guidance
23:42<sof-tech>i REALLY APPRECIATE
23:43<millisa>The next time it happens, check dmesg and /var/log/messages, both likely will say something about 'OOM' or 'out-of-memory' or something similar.
23:43<sof-tech>i will
23:44<millisa>the fix for something like that is to either limit how many processes can spawn from the web server, or get more memory
23:44<millisa>which, moving to linode would get you more memory. the 4gb DO plan runs $40/month. The 8gb linode is $40.
