02:55-!-mode/#linode [+l 337] by ChanServ
02:55<montigny34>I'm about to lose hope lol
02:55<Zimsky>why not just use sshd for sftp
02:55<Zimsky>like already exists
02:56<montigny34>i am connecting via sshd if that's what youre telling me to do?
02:56<montigny34>port 22**
02:56*dcraig vsftpds into Zimsky
02:57<Zimsky>dcraig: 别
02:57<montigny34>i can't figure out what I;'m doing ewrong
02:58<dcraig>the port was wide open
02:58<Zimsky>the airport?
02:59<dcraig>if that's what you call it
02:59<montigny34>it works fine when i create a new user and don't change their home directory
02:59<Zimsky>why don't we call transport layer socket ports that are being run over wifi "airports"
02:59<dcraig>we do...
02:59<Zimsky>The More You Know™
03:01<dcraig>I will make that my wallpaper
03:01<dcraig>montigny34, maybe the vsftpd user needs to have read/write access to the folder you want them to edit?
03:01<montigny34>they do
03:02<montigny34>it's a stupid mistake i just can't figure out
03:02<Zimsky>google knows all
03:02<montigny34>what i usually do is create a new user and it creates a homedirectory inside /var/www/user1
03:02<montigny34>that user can login via sftp and view contents of that folder
03:03<montigny34>what I'm trying to achive is setting up an admin user for example /var/www/user1 then create sub directories inside that folder
03:04<montigny34>but when i create user2
03:04<montigny34> and change it's home direcotory to /var/www/user1/
03:04<montigny34>it doesn't allow me to connect via sftp as user2
03:04<montigny34>and gives the error i mentionned above?
03:05<Zimsky>be careful in what you mean by "sftp"
03:05<montigny34>i know it;s something simple like a line i need to add / change in my my vsftpd.conf
03:05<montigny34>but i cannot figure it out
03:06<Zimsky>ask the vsftpd people
03:07<arlen>why even use vsftpd?
03:07<Zimsky>^ that's what I said
03:07<Zimsky>arlen, phrase stealer.
03:08<arlen>why even use vsftpd? - Zimsky 2017
03:08<arlen>forgot to cite my source
03:08<Zimsky>why even use a computer
03:08<Zimsky>who gave rasmus lerdorf a computer?
03:08<dcraig>if you ship a USB stick to Linode HQ, they'll copy the files for you
03:09<Zimsky>dcraig: really
03:09<Zimsky>dcraig: has this been tried?
03:10<arlen>montigny34: you don't need vsftpd for sftp, it comes with ssh
03:10<dcraig>Zimsky is so excited, I'm not sure how to respond
03:11<Zimsky>dcraig: I'm not excited, I am questioning the validity
03:12<montigny34>if i want to use vsftpd though how do i fix my current issue?
03:13<arlen>why do you want to use vsftpd?
03:14<arlen>why do you want to make things harder
03:14<grawity>10:04 (montigny34) it doesn't allow me to connect via sftp as user2
03:14<grawity>I haven't heard anything about vsftpd actually being a sftp server
03:14<grawity>just a "very secure ftp daemon"
03:14<dcraig>sftp = secure ftp
03:15<arlen>well apparently user1 connects ok
03:15<Zimsky>no dcraig
03:15<dcraig>ok what's the s stand for?
03:15<Zimsky><Zimsky> be careful in what you mean by "sftp"
03:15<Zimsky>sftp != ftps
03:15<Zimsky>I've said this many times
03:16<dcraig>ok what's the first s in ssh stand for?
03:16<arlen>if there's something to be said, Zimsky has said it
03:16<Zimsky>shit, the cat's on fire
03:16<Zimsky>dcraig: that's what it stands for ^
03:16<grawity>abbreviations aren't like anonymous structs
03:16<Zimsky>you're an anonymous struct
03:17<grawity>YOLO AS A SERVICE
03:17<Zimsky>SaaS = SaaS as a Service
03:17<Zimsky>cloudflare = MITMaaS
03:18<Zimsky>that one never gets old in my homeless opinion

03:21<montigny34>user 1 ca nconnect but not user 2 when i change the home directory
03:22<dcraig>fire user 2 and have user 1 do both jobs
03:22<Zimsky>dcraig: I always interpret it as "yesyesyesyes"
03:23<Zimsky>user2 sounds like a no-good slacker
03:28<montigny34>there's something not working when i have a home directory inside another one
03:29<Zimsky>because nesting home directories inside other home directories is a bad idea
03:29<Zimsky>it just confuses everything
03:34<montigny34>i want one superadmin
03:35<montigny34>and then allow them to give access to subdirectories inide their home folder to other users
03:36<arlen>check your logs and paste any errors into google
03:36<montigny34>i did
03:37<Zimsky>reading what google returns is also a good idea
03:37<montigny34>i did but it's all about chroot or permissions
03:37<montigny34>and idk how to fix it
03:37<arlen>ok so take the initiative and search more
03:40<Zimsky>montigny34: you can't expect other people to solve every single minor issue or problem you encounter
03:40<Zimsky>especially if you are trying to implement an exotic system

07:20<Curiousness>I understand that CentOS prefers stability over the latest features, but serving PHP 5.4.16 is causing quite a bit of silly PHP errors due to backward incompatibility.Does anyone know of a guide on updating PHP to at least 5.5?
07:21-!-mode/#linode [+l 339] by ChanServ
07:24<rsdehart>you mean to at least something that's at least still getting security fixes? This seems reasonable
07:25<rsdehart>Curiousness: I use
07:26<Cromulent>this looks good
07:26<rsdehart>fair enough. I didn't want php 7 on this particular box
07:26<Cromulent>ah OK
07:27<Curiousness>These are great - many thanks!
07:27<rsdehart>I was deploying Silverstripe, which doesn't yet play well with 7
07:27<Curiousness>I personally prefer security over latest features but errors as simple as "!empty" producing fatal errors are really annoying

07:28<rsdehart>Curiousness: if you want security, you should want at least 5.5 anyway
07:29<Curiousness>I was under the impression that the default PHP version was the most stable and secure
07:29<Cromulent>they probably back port security fixes
07:29<rsdehart>er, 5.6

07:54<jasonmce>Lish tells me there is a screen on : #.linodename (date/time) (Dead ???). How do I clear the dead console? It says to use "screen -wipe" but that simply gives me "unknown command 'screen -wipe'

08:00<hawk>jasonmce: Not sure. The message about "screen -wipe" is from screen itself I imagine, not something written with a restricted environment like Lish in mind.
08:02<jasonmce>@Hawk - interesting. I just got a note from linode saying my physical host has an issue, so not as worried about this right now (out of my hands?) but still curious what that "screen -wipe" notification was. Possibly an error message from screen to itself.
08:04<jasonmce>@hawk - thanks for the suggestion and response. Going to back off and let linode tell me about my wonky linode before continuing.

11:59<petr_>That sounds good. Hope the meteor won't be bigger than Dallas.
12:03<Peng>and as i said above, secondary zones are fine with major outages
12:04<Peng>you won't be able to change the configuration (the list of IPs for zone transfers) but you'll be able to make zone transfers to the (surviving) servers
12:06<Peng>IMO, since the manager/API seems to be based on Dallas, it could be sensible to put all your stuff *elsewhere*; if you need to fail over due to a major outage, it's less likely one of your data centers *and* Dallas would be down at the same time.

12:19<Peng>When Linode is operating as a secondary, you use a list of five hostnames (with ten IPs) for zone transfers and notifies.

In case of problem with linode DC in EU or with probably with the Dallas DC/API I want to failover the DNS records to the second provider.

15:04<itsasadstory>they have a block storage product that is still in beta
15:04<itsasadstory>until then, the only way to get more storage is to increase the size of the plan

15:16<Mich>One other question (thank btw for your answers) - My current data center configured a test account in the cloud system and I was discouraged with the slow disk performance. How does Linode compare to dedicated/standard hardware?
15:16<millisa>it's pretty fast. sign up and find out, you only pay for the time you have linodes provisioned. they have some form of guarantee, too.
15:17<Mich>I am going to do that today for sure :-). I will be using this for web hosting (business sites) - are there any limitations regarding inbound/outbound email?
15:18<millisa>other than 'dont be a spammer', not really. you can do anything (legal) you want with them mostly.

16:04<relidy>Bleh. The mass Dallas DC migration begins.
16:05<millisa>did 2 of mine on friday. was about 80MBs on each
16:06<millisa>the 48gb linode took a couple hours
16:06<Peng>I got migrated last Xen vulnerability.
16:06<Peng>A monh ago? Two
16:06<relidy>I had three last Friday. Looks like at least 3 more in a few weeks. None of them are particularly large, and all are already KVM, so it shouldn't be a big deal. Just an annoyance.
16:07<Peng>I wonder what IBM did. Raise prices? Fill the data center with sewage? Kick Linode's ass in Overwatch?
16:07<millisa>my 48gb one hadn't taken the birthday ram u pgrade . i felt like an idiot and didn't tell it to do that for its migration to dallas2... so I ended up migrating it twice
16:08<relidy>Heh, two of mine that just moved are short about 3 birthday upgrades. I've been too afraid to touch the stack until my hand was forced on this one.
16:11<relidy>I feel a lot better now since that forced us to evaluate everything. We're in a much better place now.
16:12<relidy>Sorry, pharaun, just replying to myself.

16:28<synfinatic>did you set "PasswordAuthentication no" in your sshd config?
16:28<synfinatic>oh, just saw your other message
16:29<relidy>SSH and the Linode Manager do not share authentication systems, so unless you've previously set the username/password the same, you shouldn't expect that to work.
16:29<synfinatic>so the linode webui user/pass is different from the ssh user/pass
16:29<Zimsky>is that a statement or a question
16:29<synfinatic>if you just launched your linode, the username is 'root' and the password you entered when you launched it
16:30<web_guru>well, there is no way to recover SSH credentials?
16:31<relidy>web_guru: You can boot the machine into "Rescue Mode" and reset the password.
16:32<relidy>Oh, right. There's the whole ... ^
16:32<web_guru>Thank you, guys

16:49<Eliz>Peng: IBM is incompetent
16:50<Eliz>we got our IBM account manager to call themselves imcompetent
16:50<Eliz>I've got a todo list to get that email framed
16:50<Peng>At least they don't accidentally unplug the power on an annual basis :P
16:50<Zimsky>except IBM engineers
16:50<Zimsky>they're pretty cool
16:50<Eliz>Zimsky: define "engineer"
16:51<Zimsky>Eliz: person who designs the technical shit
16:51<Zimsky>what else?
16:51<Eliz>because I know a few incompetent people appended with "Engineer" at IBM and they're far from cool
16:51<synfinatic>i once worked at a startup. the founder/cto would do sales calls and basically would tell perspective clients "you're stupid, so you should give us money"
16:51<MajObviousman>you recognize that IBM is a hyyyuuuugggeee company right?
16:51<MajObviousman>you've seen one small part of one small part of IBM
16:51<Zimsky>Eliz: is everyone you come across incompetent?
16:51<Eliz>MajObviousman: yeah, I'm being a smartass
16:51<synfinatic>to be fair, IBM keeps getting smaller :)
16:52<synfinatic>or :( if you're one of the people laid off
16:52<Eliz>and in the case of this channel, we're specifically talking about SoftLayer
16:52<Zimsky>says MajObviousman
16:52<MajObviousman>what'd I say?
16:52<Zimsky>then why did you not say
16:52<Zimsky><MajObviousman> clearly
16:52<Zimsky>bit redundant innit
16:52<Eliz>(Peng was commenting "What did IBM due to Linode, and Linode was a SoftLayer company)
16:52<Eliz>customer *
16:53<Zimsky>linode was a softlayer company?
16:53<Eliz>Zimsky: read the correction, smartass
16:53*MajObviousman cradles face in hands
16:53<Zimsky>Eliz: I don't know what you were correcting
16:53<Zimsky>you know what you were correcting
16:53<Zimsky>but that was vague
16:53<Eliz>MajObviousman: shhhh, shhhh, you'll get plenty of that soon again lol
16:53*Zimsky whacks Eliz with dcraig
16:54<MajObviousman>you know, I haven't signed anything yet, so I could still back out
16:54<Eliz>Zimsky: what's literally the only word in that sentence that could've been replaced with "customer"
16:54<Eliz>sorry it takes more than 2 braincells to compute that, heh
16:54<Zimsky>elky: IBM
16:54<MajObviousman>Eliz: weeeellll, no
16:54<itsasadstory>i'm convinced that softlayer's support staff are actually just one bot with a bunch of poorly translated text expanders that they spam at you
16:54<Zimsky>wait not you elky
16:54<Zimsky>Eliz: IBM
16:54<Eliz>Zimsky: "What did customer do to Linode, and Linode was a SoftLayer Company"
16:55<Eliz>Zimsky: that doesn't make sense ;)
16:55<Eliz>itsasadstory: we automatically escalate to managers at this point
16:55<Eliz>itsasadstory: that's what our account manager told us to do at least, LOL
16:55<Zimsky>Eliz: careful not to drown in self-righteousness
16:55<MajObviousman>I can see direct word replacements that would fit, and if I allow Levenshtein distance (e.g. some typos in original sentance left uncorrected), I can come with even more
16:55<Eliz>Zimsky: I think you hold that title pretty well
16:56<Zimsky>Eliz: ikr
16:56<Zimsky>Eliz: s/\b\w+\b/customer/g
16:56<Zimsky>think like middle management
16:56<itsasadstory>like, support at a hosting company is typically dicey at best (Linode is way better than most, imho - though I'm a bit biased there) but even by the lowest standards softlayer fails
16:56<Eliz>itsasadstory: anyway, the reality is tier1 is usually pretty unaware of outages,
16:56<MajObviousman>this feels like an episode of Seinfeld, if all the characters were Linux nerds
16:56<Zimsky>actually that can just be done without boundaries
16:57<Zimsky>MajObviousman: did you just assume my flavour of unix?
16:57<Zimsky>I am a bsd nerd
16:59<MajObviousman>I stopped caring after I read "did you just assume"
16:59<Zimsky>I was mocking the whole "did you assume the gender" thing
17:00<Zimsky>while I do in fact use bsd more than linux, I don't actually give a shit
17:00<pharaun>plz dont, tyvm
17:00<Zimsky>don't what
17:00<Zimsky>don't give a shit?
17:01<Zimsky>that's what I said

17:11<Zimsky>the linode manager is the control panel for all your linode stuff
17:11<Zimsky>not just DNS
17:12<Peng>petr_: As i said earlier, you can use a secondary zone

17:20<petr_> Zimsky: but as far as I understand it, the linode manager is not decentralized for problem cases, or am I wrong?
17:21<Zimsky>how do you define "problem cases"?
17:21<Zimsky>and the linode manager isn't decentralised at all
17:22<Cromulent>petr_: if the manager is down you could always use the API to manage DNS I would imagine? Never done it myself but I guess it might work
17:22<Peng>I have the impression the API and manager are equally centralized.
17:22<Peng>petr_: Zone transfers aren't centralized.
17:23<Cromulent>ah OK
17:28<petr_>Peng, Cromulent: I thought that the API === the manager === Dallas DC.
17:29<Peng>I'm not certain that's true, but i think it is.
17:29<petr_>So, the secondary zone should/could be set up before the disaster?
17:30<Peng>And it raises the question of where your primary nameservers would be
17:30<Peng>A different option is using a non-Linode DNS provider.
17:30<petr_>it is overkill.
17:32<Peng>Multiple DNS providers*
17:34<petr_>Peng: why? DNS records should be decentralized...
17:34<MajObviousman>ever ask why we drink
17:36<petr_>MajObviousman: why do you drink? :D
17:36*MajObviousman stares
17:37<petr_>Peng: btw, do you work for Linode?
