03:19<andrew>I have 1 question. is there any possible way to recover deleted folder in ubutu? I have unintentionally deleted my public_html folder in one of my domains.
03:19<arlen>restore from a backup
03:19<andrew>using rm -rf
03:20<Peng>The reliable option is to restore from a backup.
03:20<Peng>Less reliably... Stop writing to the disk immediately, and try some undelete software. The files probably mostly haven't been scribbled on.
03:21<andrew>Thanks, I'll try

09:30<lenu>i want to know if Linode also offers ssd block storage pricing
09:31-!-mode/#linode [+l 364] by ChanServ
09:32<MrPPS>lenu: block storage is currently in beta
09:41<lenu>what kind of support do you provide for new comers?
09:41<lenu>if i sign up for your product do i get any setup support at least initial server preparation and configuration
09:43<MrPPS>lenu: it's a completely unmanaged service
09:43<MrPPS>Unless you pay specifically for a managed linode service - but this is extra as it's not what most require
09:44<MrPPS>lenu: there are of course many guides available
09:44<MrPPS>But these are non-interactive
09:44<MrPPS>(ie you read and follow, and figure out any issues yourself, or through community support like the irc channel here)
09:44<lenu>are there some pre-install apps on your vps to make managing it easy and straight forward?
09:45<MrPPS>Stack scripts are the closest you'll come to pre-installed - these are scripts that can be run initially to set stuff up
09:45<MrPPS>But the OS images themselves aren't preconfigured with anything but the essentials

13:46<MajObviousman>if you dump to a ssh channel, you're not writing to the drives, just to a socket. And you can use compression
13:48<Hello_Space>So use an SSH command to back up the large database to a location on my server?
13:48<MajObviousman>oh, I misunderstood. I thought you were downloading it across the ssh channel
13:49<MajObviousman>write a script, set it to run nightly. When you need to create a custom backup, ssh in and run the script
13:49<Hello_Space>I normally use MySQLDumper
13:49<Hello_Space>But SSH would be a lot easier
13:49<Hello_Space>Hence why I'd rather do it using the SSH dump command but idk if it'll work or hang
13:49<MajObviousman>I think we're having a disagreement in terminology here
13:50<MajObviousman>let's settle that first
13:50<MajObviousman>describe what you mean by "via SSH"
13:50<synfinatic>yeah, ssh is so you can login to a remote box. basically a secure version of telnet. scp (part of ssh) allows you to copy files between boxes
13:50<Hello_Space>Using Putty to execute this command: mysqldump -u root -p -h localhost customer > customerBackup.sql
13:51<MajObviousman>ok. And what do you mean by "using a script"?
13:51<Hello_Space>Using MySQLDumper to make a backup of the database without using Putty
13:52<synfinatic>I would just run that mysqldump command via cron on your linode
13:52<Hello_Space>What do you mean via cron? Newbie here
13:53<synfinatic>cron allows you to schedule commands to run at certain times
13:53<MajObviousman>it's a service to run commands at a specified time
13:53<synfinatic>google "how to use cron" :)
13:53<Hello_Space>Oh. A paid service by linode?
13:53<synfinatic>nope. free. part of linux
13:53<MajObviousman>nope, it's free and comes with almost all Linuxes
13:53<MajObviousman>in various forms
13:54<MajObviousman>these days, systemd has taken over that role
13:54<grawity>to some extent
13:54<Hello_Space>But what if I just want a single backup right now?
13:54<grawity>for random tasks, cron is still much easier to configure
13:54<Hello_Space>Because I want to upgrade MySQL
13:54<grawity>then just do a mysqldump via SSH
13:55<Hello_Space>So it will work for large databases and it wouldn't hang like phpMyAdmin, right?
13:55<linbot>New news from forum: Email/SMTP Related Forum • User unknown in virtual alias table <>
13:55<grawity>it shouldn't
13:55<MajObviousman>correct, it should not
13:55<grawity>do you want to backup to the server itself, or to your local computer?
13:56<Hello_Space>Alright, thanks. Do I see progress or how would I know it's done?
13:56<Hello_Space>To the server and then I can download via FTP
13:56<MajObviousman>if you want to see progress, then you could pipe the dump through pv or something similar
13:56<grawity>normally that's not shown
13:56<Hello_Space>So I'll have to look in the folder for when it's done or can I exit Putty after running the command?
13:56<grawity>you can install pv and do `mysqldump ..... | gzip | pv > whatever.sql.gz` (compress it as well)
13:57<grawity>actually, even | dd status=progress > whatever.sql.gz
13:57*MajObviousman tends to run two invocations of pv to see the before and after compression speeds
13:57<Hello_Space>I'm fine with no progress if it only shows in the path once done
13:57<Hello_Space>Does it?
13:57<grawity>the file shows up as soon as the program starts writing to it
13:58<MajObviousman>how about this
13:58<Hello_Space>So how exactly will I know when it's done? ;~;
13:58<MajObviousman><your big mysql command> && touch isdone
13:58<MajObviousman>look for the presence of the file isdone
13:58<grawity>it's done when the mysqldump command exits, of course
13:58<MajObviousman>when that file exists, the dump is complete
13:58<Hello_Space>Ah, so when it goes back to the normal little bar, it's done?
13:58<Hello_Space>Thats perfect
13:58<grawity>when it goes to the regular shell prompt, it's done
13:59<Hello_Space>Yeah, I don't use technical terms :P
13:59<grawity>I don't use terribly vague terms
13:59<Hello_Space>I'm still new to all of this :D

14:04<grawity>ah, that one
14:04<grawity>well it's a bar sometimes, but OTOH it's usually visible even while mysqldump (or whatever command) is still running

20:27<glickity>cool, thanks
20:27<MrPPS>No wories!
20:27<glickity>do most people in here work for linode?
20:28<linbot>Users with ops are employees of Linode, and know what they're talking about. The rest of us are the ever-so-helpful(?) community. Official Linode contact information:
20:28<MrPPS>^ :)
20:28<glickity> cool
20:29<glickity>the linode guides are awesome
20:29<glickity>very clear and concise
20:30<Zimsky>glickity: set a non-standard ssh port?
20:31<Eliz>meh, fail2ban is cheap enough, I'd just keep it around :p
20:31<glickity>Zimsky: that would stop maybe the level zero script kiddies, but a simple port scan would show what port its running on no?
20:32<Eliz>if you're using keys, nobody is going to get in honestly, unless you're dumb with your private key
20:32<Zimsky>Eliz: except when there's some 0day
20:32<Zimsky>in openssh or openssl
20:32<Eliz>Zimsky: the worst I can think of, honestly, is the debian key "bug".
20:32<glickity>and the NSA's quantum key breakers of course
20:33<Zimsky>Eliz: I'm talking about the future potential exploits
20:33<Zimsky>not past
20:33<Eliz>Zimsky: note that I still recommended fail2ban ;)
20:33<Zimsky>glickity: most large-scale port scans don't run the whole 1-65535
20:33<Eliz>glickity: and, if you're the target of the NSA, you're probably already sol.
20:34<glickity>i dont know, i called the president a SOB once on the phone, and in an email
20:34<Zimsky>NSA doesn't give a shit about that
20:35<Eliz>pretty sure at this point they'd agree with you *shrug*
20:35<glickity>i always get the inner thigh massage by the tsa when i fly
20:35<Zimsky>glickity: you would actually find by setting it to some ephemeral port (>1023), the number of attempts drops significantly

20:37<Eliz>Zimsky: *shrug* I have a decent amount of faith that someone didn't do something stupid with lish
20:37<Zimsky>faith isn't security
20:37<Eliz>heck, it's even smart enough to lock you out if your subaccount is deleted.

20:38<glickity>i meant to say
20:38<glickity>sorry RMS
20:38<Eliz>and I don't think there's reproducible compiles for most distros, anyway
20:38<Zimsky>Eliz: then your ability to determine differences in risk is questionable
20:39<Eliz>Zimsky: the risk that lish is compromised? just seemingly really unlikely :p
20:39<Zimsky>so many emoticons
20:39<Eliz>more emoticons == less shits given, really, and that I'm enjoying the pointless argument :p
20:39<Eliz>just ask dwfreed ;)
20:40<Zimsky>if you gave less shits, we wouldn't be talking
20:40*Eliz hands Zimsky a shit.
20:40<MrPPS>Emoticons also = less confusion with the way text is portrayed; I find without the use of emoticons, people tend to get upset/angry a lot easier
20:40<MrPPS>as a general rule of thumb
20:40<Zimsky>unless you keep the discussion about the subject matter
20:40<glickity>they need a middle finger emoticon
20:40<Zimsky>instead of resorting to ad hominem attacks
20:41<MrPPS>Even then, people get emotional + offended
20:41<glickity>that would solve so many problems
20:41<Eliz>I'm hardly attacking, lol.

20:57<glickity>keeping time on your servers? ntp? openntp?
20:58<Eliz>glickity: depends, believe in systemd? lol
20:59<Eliz>(and if your distro even compiles that in I guess lol)
20:59<glickity>do vps' use the RTC of the underlying hardware to sync time?
20:59<Eliz>xen passes the time off of the dom0, as does kvm, yes
21:00<Eliz>still worth setting up some sort of ntp daemon though
21:00<MrPPS>don't have to trust the host is right then

21:37<MrPPS>not fill up, but they'll be noisier
21:37<glickity>people gonna try to hit ssh
21:37<glickity>people are asshats
21:38<FluffyFoxeh>best defense is keyed logins, or at least a good password :)
21:38<glickity>with so few services running is a firewall necessary?
21:38<glickity>i mean, i got nginx
21:38<glickity>and ssh basically
21:39<glickity>and ssh disallows password logins and root logins
21:39<FluffyFoxeh>as I understand it, a firewall is good for only allowing connections that you explicitly specify are allowed
21:39<MrPPS>Firewall really is only gonna help with preventing egress
21:39<MrPPS>or extra ingress if they try running additional services
21:39<MrPPS>in the event of a compromise, that is
21:39<glickity>and running ossec probably a bit overkill for a wp install?
21:40<MrPPS>oh, wordpress
21:40<MrPPS>Well, don't run any plugins/extensions :P
21:40<glickity>im sure ill run a few
21:40<MrPPS>It's not uncommon for a compromised wordpress to end up running outgoing connections for other stuff, so given it's wordpress it might be worth at least having an outgoing filter set up

21:41-!-mode/#linode [+l 363] by ChanServ
21:41<MrPPS>but depends how much you care, or if you're more likely to just see it's compromised + rebuild from backups
21:45<glickity>so basicaly just allow in and out connections on ssh and httpd?
21:48<MrPPS>you'll probably need a few extra destination IP's or source software for updates etc.
21:48<MrPPS>you'll probably also want to allow queries to certain NTP servers
21:49<FluffyFoxeh>can one reasonably configure a Linux firewall to only allow egress from whitelisted applications? So someone couldn't use your server in a DDoS unless they got root or hijacked something privileged
21:49-!-tonypham [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Quit: Page closed]
21:50<MrPPS>didn't wait long
21:51<MrPPS>Well, you can reasonably configure that, yes
21:51-!-mode/#linode [+l 362] by ChanServ
21:51<MrPPS>But it takes time + effort which most people don't put in :)
21:51<FluffyFoxeh>would that be apparmor/SELinux or something else? I've never really looked into this and I know that process-based rules in iptables aren't really a thing
21:54<MrPPS>I generally just go down the route of IP + TCP based rules, just because they're consistent across various hosts + platforms
21:54<MrPPS>But you could probably do it with apparmor or SELinux; I've just not really looked into doing so
21:54<MrPPS>But IP + TCP/UDP rules are all platform-independent
21:54<FluffyFoxeh>well I mean, you can always whitelist ports in any firewall, but I'm talking about applications. So someone couldn't run some random binary and get out on port 80 because it's open already
21:55<FluffyFoxeh>they'd have to trick Apache into doing it
21:56<Eliz>glickity: lol wordpress
21:56<FluffyFoxeh>or something else that explicitly has permission to communicate on port 80
21:56<Eliz>.apropos wordpress

21:56<linbot>Eliz: No appropriate commands were found.
21:56<Eliz>darn, was sure there was an alias at some point laughing at wordpress
21:58<MrPPS>FluffyFoxeh: Yeah, presumably possible, but I've never specifically looked at doing it
22:01<FluffyFoxeh>Eliz: I don't think apropos will find aliases or factoids

22:06<FluffyFoxeh>this one has Aka, not Alias

22:07<FluffyFoxeh>I know
22:07<FluffyFoxeh>Aka does the same thing
22:07<Eliz>except not really ;)
22:07<Eliz>at least, apparently not in the same fashion
22:08<FluffyFoxeh>yeah. it does call itself an alias if you run help on it

22:08<FluffyFoxeh>but I guess it's different
22:08<Eliz>yeah, not quite the same it seems
22:14<Eliz>would definitely move to aka, since it decouples from bot.conf, but lack of help/alias is a real put down .. darn
22:15<FluffyFoxeh>I found two zip files in an backup of my home directory: and They're password-protected and I don't remember the password. In fact I don't remember what's inside them nor ever putting them there

23:04<FluffyFoxeh>in the context of fail2ban it's probably meant to be called automatically from the fail2ban scripts somehow

23:09<FluffyFoxeh>that's odd
