04:00<Congo_>Hi, suggestions on having a central mysql database (internal) that is accesed by two websites on diferent linodes
04:01<huiming>Do you support the corporate post office? Open port 25, 110/6080?
04:03<Congo_>Can We have a private linode that can only be accessed throught private internal ip?
04:03<Congo_>so the linodes can access the database but no other computers outside the linode network
04:03<csnxs>huiming, I don't believe linode block any ports
04:04<csnxs>Congo_, yes linodes have private networking
04:04<Congo_>ok csnxs , how do i look for that option in the linode options?
04:05<Peng>Note that *other people's Linodes* can access private IPs.
04:05<Peng>So you'd get pretty much the same value from public IPs and a firewall.

04:15<Congo_>found the option using the old manager, thanks guys

08:48<zay>Hello, I currently have my website working on wordpress and need to update my php version, currently 5.6.4 to 7.1
08:49<DrJ>zay: what linux distro are you using?
08:51<zay>I'm sorry where can I find that?
08:52<DrJ>zay: to be frank, if you don't know that you probably are going to have a difficult time upgrading PHP yourself
08:52<@scrane>When you first log in via SSH, do you see something there that says CentOS, or Ubuntu, or Debian, etc?
08:55<@scrane>As a word of warning, upgrading PHP can cause errors for any PHP scripts you have running as sometimes the syntax won't always update properly. If you aren't a developer, I recommend reaching out to one or making sure you have one on hand in case something goes wrong. For this reason I recommend making sure you have backups available before making any changes.

13:36<Peter_>Hi I am trying to see a historical record of all the downtime (planned and unplanned) for my linode since creation about a year ago. Where can I find this info?

13:47<AlexMax>I'm in the new cloud UI and "zone file" is completely greyed out for domains
13:48<AlexMax>known issue?
13:56<@scrane>Hey, Peter_. Can you clarify a little more what you're looking for? If you are looking for instances of announced maintenance or emergency maintenance, it is likely checking your history of Support tickets will have that information there for you.
13:58<@scrane>Also, we have a record of major maintenance at if that is helpful.
13:59<Peter_>I'm looking for both - I want to get an idea of the % of downtime in each case, since I'll need to pass on that data to clients as an expected risk. I can't really justify the time it will take to go through all the tickets to figure it out, a chart or something would be much more useful.
13:59<Peter_>also what is your historical downtime for the resilient volumes service?
14:01<@scrane>I'm not certain of any historical downtime for Block Storage, however I would recommend creating a Support ticket and we would be able to take a look at your Linodes and see what questions we can answer for you.
14:02<Peter_>ok thanks

14:36<@samstreuli>clairelyclaire If your configs are on different Linodes, the best way to copy your disks would be to "Clone from Existing". If your configs are on the same Linode, you can add your disks to the new config, boot the new config, and then mount the disks you want.

15:35<Guest4370>Linode 4GB Standard Plans How Many Page Views In Per Day ???
15:35<Zr40>there's no specific limit imposed by Linode
15:37<Guest4370>My Website Traffic Is High 50,00,000 Page Views PER Month So ???
15:37<Guest4370>This Plan Is Better ???
15:38<csnxs>depends on a lot of factors
15:38<Guest4370>my website size 500kb
15:46<@cmcfarland>Hi Guest4370, it seems like you are trying to decide which plan is right for you which, as others have commented, can depend on several factors. Based on what you've detailed, a 4GB Linode could certainly work. The good news is, you can scale your Linode's plan up or down at any time if you find that you need more resources or are able to utilize a plan with less. You can check out our different
15:46<@cmcfarland>plans here:

15:57<ericoc>never seen someone list their "website size" before.. 500kb too.. weird. that could be like one image, or a ton of text, or some php that generates 10x as much html..
16:01<nuevu>I'm guessing they were trying to give us a payload size metric. As in, loading the page generates 500KB worth of download. Still not useful to help determine the node size, but it's better than we usually see.
16:03<nuevu>And if that's really the case, ~24TB/month is a pretty significant amount to transfer (assuming their estimate of pageviews/month is reasonable)
16:04<Zr40>our sites see a ton of traffic, but still: "7204GB Used, 21593GB Remaining, 28797GB Quota"
16:05<nobaudy>50,000,000 pageviews a month is a boat load.
16:08<Zr40>also 16% of that is over IPv6. Still a lot better than our previous hosting, which had no IPv6 at all

20:59<hays>does this certbot dns-linode plugin thing work?
20:59<hays>I can't figure out what im supposed to install to make it happen
21:01<dwfreed>given that it's shipped in certbot, I would imagine it works
21:01<hays>hmm doesnt seem shipped in mine
21:02<hays>maybe i need a newer certbot
21:03<dwfreed>if you're installing from distro packages, it might be in a different package
21:03<hays>debian 9
21:03-!-Peter_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:05<hays>if so its not called certbot-anything
21:10*dwfreed casts Summon Peng
21:12<dwfreed>it appears that debian decided not to package the dns-linode plugin
21:12<dwfreed>at least not for stretch
21:14<Peng>What do you think of upgrading to testing!
21:14<dwfreed>my guess is that because stretch originally never shipped it (because it originally shipped a now ancient version of certbot), they weren't going to add it
21:15<Peng>DNS plugin packaging is a problem. They usually get packaged, but not quickly.
21:15<Peng>The official recommendation if it's not available is to use Docker
21:16<dwfreed>oh yeah, let's use docker just for certbot
21:17<dwfreed>I would just install certbot using pip3 (after installing python3-pip from distro packages, optionally followed by 'pip3 install -U pip')
21:18<Peng>Officially not recommended. Usually works fine until people corrupt all their crypto packages.
21:20<dwfreed>I mean, just don't do dumb things :D
22:24<@mcintosh>how much materia does Summon Peng require?
22:24<Peng>Half a liter of boiling water and three convenience store teabags
