13:53<LouWestin>I'm trying to figure out why htop is saying two of my web servers are saying the uptime is several hundred days now.
13:54<LouWestin>all debian 9, same kernel, and theyve been rebooted
13:54<millisa>what does 'uptime' show
13:55<LouWestin>I looked up the issue and there's mention about a possibly corrupt file, but eh.. not sure about that
13:55<LouWestin>meaning editing the file
13:56<millisa>The uptime command is or is not showing the wrong uptime?
13:56<LouWestin>sorry it's showing the the wrong uptime
13:56<LouWestin>the time/date is fine
13:56<millisa>so it's not an htop issue
13:57<millisa>what does 'who -b' show?
13:57<LouWestin>I'll log in now
13:58<LouWestin>system boot 2019-01-07 04:15
13:58<LouWestin>should be GMT
13:59<millisa>ls -l /proc/uptime ?
13:59<dwfreed>I wonder if /proc failed to mount
14:00<LouWestin>for that it's -r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 7 04:16 /proc/uptime
14:00<dwfreed>okay, cat /proc/uptime
14:01<LouWestin>and that gets me... 14932746.93 52569.29
14:02<millisa>172 days 19 hours?
14:02<LouWestin>that's it.
14:02<LouWestin>according to htop
14:03<LouWestin>and top
14:03<LouWestin>the good news, everything else seems to be working fine. lol
14:04<dwfreed>sounds like you found a kernel bug
14:04<dwfreed>what's uname -a
14:04<LouWestin>4.19.8-x86_64-linode120 #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Dec 10 18:25:47 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux
14:05<LouWestin>it's strange though because I did the reboot last night to update the kernel
14:05<LouWestin>and that's when I noticed the extra long uptime.
14:05<millisa>you could try going back to linode117
14:05<LouWestin>before that kernel, it was...
14:06-!-CodeMouse92 [] has joined #linode
14:06-!-CodeMouse92 is "Jason C. McDonald" on #packaging #linode #c++
14:06<LouWestin>yeah it was the 117 kernel.
14:07<LouWestin>I don't know why it's only affecting the two web servers and not the other server I run... at least that's what it looks like right now
14:07<LouWestin>I'll revert back to 117 and see
14:09<LouWestin>if that doesn't fix it, i'll step back another kernel
14:12<linbot>New news from community: Backup Notifications - Success/Failure or API to Poll <>
14:13<LouWestin>Might be a kernel issue with 117 because the server is rebooting. I'll pastebin it
14:14<LouWestin>I'm going to go back another kernel
14:17<LouWestin>Ok, looks like 114 is giving the same issue
14:18<millisa>the uptime issue?
14:18<LouWestin>actually the server isn't coming back up
14:19<millisa>how are you restarting it?
14:20<LouWestin>through the Linode manager
14:20<millisa>rescue mode -
14:22<LouWestin>Ok, trying that now.
14:24<millisa>there's also the logview command in lish that might be of interest ( mentions how to use it for a specific node)
14:30<LouWestin>Ok, so I couldn't find anything wrong with the disks, that's good.
14:30-!-marshmn [~matt@] has joined #linode
14:30-!-marshmn is "Matt Marsh" on #linode
14:31<LouWestin>I ended up going back to the latest 64bit kernel since the older kernels won't bring it up at all
14:32<LouWestin>the uptime issue is still there, but... eh... it's not mission critical

14:56<Maaz>I have my website hosted at Linode by hosting team, and my site is down from past 1 hour
14:56<Maaz>can you please check into this?
14:56<millisa>Linode is an unmanaged service. Did you login to your server to see why it was down?
14:57<Maaz>My server is managed by my Hosting Team and am not reachable to them
14:57<millisa>You would need to work through them then
14:57<Maaz>I do not have access to it
14:57<Maaz>Is there a way you could help me?
14:57<Maaz>Its down more than an hour
14:58<millisa>Most of us are customers, we wouldn't be able to do anything to your servers.
14:58<millisa>much less someone else's servers that aren't yours
14:58-!-Maaz [~oftc-webi@] has quit []
15:14<LouWestin>eh, he's gotta call his hosting team
15:15<LouWestin>and thanks millisa and dwfreed for the help earlier
15:17-!-redentor [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:18<dwfreed>LouWestin: the uptime is properly counting up, just super off?
15:19<LouWestin>As far as I know it's just super off
15:19<millisa>what does it start at?
15:19<millisa>moments after reboot, what does it show as the uptime?
15:20<LouWestin>actually no it's looks like the uptime is off too. it's reporting 172 days and 21:18 hours
15:21<LouWestin>date is Mon Jan 7 20:20:59 UTC 2019
15:21-!-fergtm [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:22<LouWestin>the Previous kernels two kernels looked like it was going into kernel panic
15:22<LouWestin>I always get the strangest issues. LOL
15:25<LouWestin>I had to go in lish and it was giving some error but I couldn't copy it fast enough to pastebin it here.
15:25<dwfreed>this is what logview is for
15:25<LouWestin>so I'm running on the latest 64bit kernel again and everything else seems to be working otherwise
15:26<dwfreed>go to lish, detach from the console, then run logview and scroll up
15:38<@mcintosh>LouWestin: uptime is broken in certain kernel versions RE: it being off
15:38<@mcintosh>(not specific to Linode kernels)
15:41<LouWestin>when I switch to 117, detach, logview, and reboot screen terminates where I can't even scroll back up to get the logs
15:42<millisa>ctrl-a + esc - doesn't let you scroll?
15:43<dwfreed>are you connected to lish from within a screen session?
15:44<LouWestin>I'm pretty sure I am, I detached from it
15:44<dwfreed>lish the shell, not the console
15:44<dwfreed>the console runs in a screen session
15:44<dwfreed>is your connection to lish in a screen session
15:45<LouWestin>I was running the lish console via browser
15:45<dwfreed>that probably doesn't have useful scrolling
15:45<dwfreed>I honestly never use the web console
15:45<LouWestin>k, I'll try it through ssh

15:46-!-redentor is "realname" on #debian-mx #debian-es #linode
15:56<LouWestin>Ok, here's the part of the log where it looks the issue begins. This is using the 117 kernel
15:58<dwfreed>linbot: errno 8
15:58<linbot>dwfreed: ENOEXEC (#8): Exec format error
15:58<dwfreed>you picked the wrong kernel
15:59<dwfreed>you picked the x86 kernel, not the 64 bit kernel
16:00*LouWestin slaps forehead
16:02<LouWestin>Well that explains that! LOL
16:10<LouWestin>What it was, I looked up the list for the 117 kernel not paying attention to the x86.
16:13<LouWestin>Ok the uptime on the 117 kernel is now correct

16:30<Woet>if you guys want to share a review about Linode, I just deployed the reviews feature on my site:

16:48<Woet>thats suggesting a provder

20:12<waltman>I just rebooted my linode via the Linode Manager. When I logged back in it said my uptime was 249 days. WTF?
20:12<LouWestin>It’s a kernel bug
20:12<waltman>again, WTF?
20:12<LouWestin>A went back to 117
20:13<waltman>linode should back it out if it's got that serious of a bug.
20:14<waltman>If I reboot from the command line will I get a normal uptime?
20:14<waltman>This is messing up my stats!
20:14<LouWestin>mcintosh needs to spanked
20:15<LouWestin>Just switch back to the 117 kernel and reboot. It’ll be fine.
20:16<waltman>I'm just using their default kernel. I don't know how to use any other kernel.
20:16<retro|blah>Linode Manager, edit the configuration profile, select an older kernel.
20:20<LouWestin>Should be under profile. There’s a list of kernels just select the 117 64 bit one.
20:24<@mcintosh>the default for new linodes is GRUB2 which means the distro's kernel
20:24<@mcintosh>which would mean nothing for Linode to "back out of"
20:25<waltman>I opened a support ticket.
20:25<LouWestin>mcintosh: I was only poking fun fyi
20:25<retro|blah>waltman: What does "uname -r" say?
20:26<waltman>I'm pretty sure mine is setup to get the kernel from That must've been the default when I set mine up.
20:27<waltman>Probably a stray tachyon burst.
20:27<retro|blah>Yes; and we mentioned a way to roll it back to an older kernel.
20:27-!-apacheAccess [] has joined #linode
20:27-!-apacheAccess is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
20:28<waltman>Yes, and I'd like to hear something official from support before I do anythign.
20:28<waltman>such as why they have a buggy kernel as their default
20:29<retro|blah>That is fair.
20:30<apacheAccess>how do you guys deal with apache website and access control?
20:30<apacheAccess>I've been using password protected directorys
20:30<apacheAccess>but that cant hold up to brute attacks.
20:32<nate>no reason it can't if you use lengthy passwords. That said what exactly are you trying to protect? Just directories or?
20:33<nate>(also you can hook fail2ban into things like htaccess/http-auth attempts)
20:33<apacheAccess>mainly files
20:34<apacheAccess>but I'm willing to try other methods.
20:34<apacheAccess>so lets say I have documents. well right now its a bunch of text files in a password protected directory
20:38<LouWestin>Probably the best method would be to have a username login to access those documents
