04:01<Peng>Is it possible to transfer a /116 between accounts? Hypothetically.
04:32<@jcardillo>Peng: let me check
04:33<Peng>Don't look at my account. You'll see all the IPv6 blocks I have assigned and sigh. ;D
04:33<@jcardillo>I didn't :)
04:34<@jcardillo>I believe you can only move /64 or /56 pools between accounts.
04:36<Peng>I can work with that... maybe.
04:37<Peng>Thank you for checking :)
04:37<@jcardillo>wait, to clarify: i think this is because the /116 range is not routed to a specific Linode, but instead is routed to every Linode. So addresses from this pool could hypothetically be used by other Linodes on your account in the same dc.
04:38<Peng>They /could/ but, in the hypothetical situation, the source account would only have 0-1 Linodes.

04:47<@jcardillo>Peng: maybe I misunderstood. I was thinking you meant, is it possible tyo transfer a /116 between Linodes. But did you mean between your account and someone elses? If so I'd have to ask around about that. Because I'm not sure.
04:48<Peng>Well, between my account, and my *other* account. :D
04:49<Peng>So not someone else's, but yes, accounts.
04:54<@jcardillo>Gotcha. Let me try and find out.
05:11<Peng>Thinking about moving a Linode between two accounts. I'd prefer not to renumber all the IPv6 addresses -- or at least not without some transitional time.

05:15<@jcardillo>from what i'm gathering, the answer is no. the /116 pool can't be moved between accounts.

14:51<tems>What is the total count of users under the dedicated $ 30 linode account?
14:52<millisa>I'm not sure the question makes sense.
14:52<millisa>The prices are for a virtual private server. You determine what OS, how many users, how things are installed.
14:54<tems>Sorry, very handicapped in IT.

16:35<BRummel45>Hi there! Just a quick question regarding your service. Would it possible to spin up a VM using the Nanode plan?
16:36<millisa>They sort of are vm's already
16:36<@mtjones>Are you looking to install a specific kind of OS to it?
16:37<Peng>BRummel45: What exactly are you asking? Do you want to run a VM inside your VM?
16:37<millisa>Yo dawg...
16:37<BRummel45>... I just answered my own question didn't I? XD

18:13-!-Humpas is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
18:16<Humpas>Goodevening, quick and potentially stupid question but.. I have a new domain, configured it to use linode nameservers, added the domain under my linode account. using whois on mxtoolbox show ns(1-5) to be nameservers. BUT when i try to do a nslookup against i get "query refused".
18:16<Humpas>Is there an obvious step i missed?
18:17<millisa>How long ago did you configure the zone on the nameservers? (They publish about every 15 minutes)
18:18<Humpas>About a day or so ago, over 24hrs
18:18<millisa>what's the domain?
18:21<millisa>and the dns records you added in the dns manager? that was a day ago?
18:21<Humpas>Three acording to thel inode control panel
18:22<Humpas>Should i try deleting the domain from linode and re-creating it? (i only have two a-records at the mo and they┬┤re not in use for anything)
18:24<millisa>what is one of the a records?
18:25<smccabe>Hey Humpas, Could you open a support ticket with us and pass along the ticket number?
18:25<smccabe>would help us take a deeper look into this
18:26<Humpas>smccabe: Sure i'll get on that right away. Thanks!
18:26<millisa>do you have a linode configured on the accuont?
18:26<millisa>at least 1?

19:30<bobby>best sftpsofytware for centos 7?
19:31<Abi12>or ftp/ftps?
19:32<Abi12>vsftpd is great for ftp/ftps. Just use openssh server and enable chroot jailing for SFTP.
19:32<@mtjones>It depends on what you'd prefer to use. It looks like vsftpd can run just fine on CentOS 7.
19:32<bobby>i want to be able to have one master login that sees all chroot jails
19:33<bobby>and the ability to assign users to different chroot jails to see multiple sites
19:33<bobby>thats the end goal ideally
19:35<Abi12>It's possible. Atleast the first thing you mentioned, I've set up something like that recently. It just takes a certain level of coordination with file permissions/sshd.conf rules.
19:38<bobby>can you provide a tut to achieve this?
19:39<Abi12>I remember having to use a mixture of tutorials and trial/error. I can give you a quick run down though. It sort of works like virtualhosts, except the user cannot write into the root directory.
19:40<Abi12>I had a /var/sftp folder which contains all the sites. I assigned /var/sftp as my 'sftp admin' user's home directory and disable shell access. Then I'd assign each normal user's gome directory to an individual site.
19:42<Abi12>so the sftp admin could read read/write into each of the site subdirectories, but unfortunately cannot create new directories within its root.
19:47<Abi12>oh wow. Linode has a nice tutorial on it:
19:47<Abi12>Not sure if this applies to centos 7 :p, never used it.
19:48<Abi12>err.. I actually tabbed here to ask something. Does anyone have a *recent* url rewrite ruleset when running wordpress on lighttpd? Everything I'm finding stretches back to WP 3.X.X
19:48<@mtjones>Abi12: As in, the base wordpress .htaccess file contents?
19:50<Abi12>basically. I already have a front controller ruleset from another site.. I guess it'd be better to ask. "How do I exclude pre-exisiting directory index urls from rewriting to the index.php?". So if a user types in or, it's seen as wp-admin/index.php
19:51<Abi12>I have to manually exclude that whole directory currently and/or specify a static rule for each directory.
19:51<Abi12>Not sure if I phrased all that correctly.. sorry.
19:52<Abi12>/s/for each directory/for each url
19:52<@mtjones>I think I follow. If I remember correctly there's a set of mod_rewrite directives in either the .htaccess file or index file for in the document_root/wp-admin/ file that does the rewrite.
19:52<@mtjones>In the specific case of redirecting to wp-login.php
19:53<@mtjones>I don't think WordPress does anything more complicated than that for any other redirect, so it should all just be in .htaccess files in differend directories
19:53<@mtjones>different, even.
19:53<Abi12>ahh yes. That works fine. I'm taking about on the server-side of things, since I have to add the front-controller pattern rewrite rules in lighttpd.conf
19:54<Abi12>I guess in shorter terms. I want to lead me to, but I want to be rewritten to index.php
19:55<@mtjones>The same way you handled the general redirect rules for the front end of the site will work for the back end of the site too.
19:55<@mtjones>It's just a matter of changing it to be for only
19:57<@mtjones>That being said I'm not sure off the top of my head if wp-admin will work the same, it's been a while since I've been in the back end of a wordpress install.
19:58<@mtjones>If the URL in your browser stays as no matter what page you visit in wp-admin then it will work. If the url in your browser changes at all when navigating around then forcing it to stay at might break it.
19:59<Abi12>I'm confused now LOL.
20:00<Abi12>Currently my rules do this: it rewrites all urls to index.php if the file doesn't exist.
20:00<@mtjones>Yeah, that should work.
20:00<Abi12>I'd like it to rewrite all urls to index.php if the file AND *directory* doesn't exist.
20:00<@mtjones>That's where it might break things.
20:01<Abi12>hmm okay. Then I should probably wait for the web designer to report back. He mentioned that some of the plugins were broken, and it was possibly because I was excluding wp-admin/wp-content from rewriting.
20:01<bobby>does it show up as insecure?
20:02<@mtjones>WordPress essentially 'tricks' your browser into thinking directories exist when they're really just dynamically generated by WordPress. This is to make things look pretty in the browser URL and to make visiting the same page twice easier.
20:02<bobby>i installed certbot
20:02<bobby>why does this happen?
20:02<Abi12>yeah xD. I almost always use a front controller pattern, but I've never had to figure out this sort of issue.
20:02<@mtjones>If you make lighttpd check if a directory really exists before allowing someone to visit it, then it might break WordPress.
20:03<bobby>yea that one works fine
20:03<Abi12>bobby: you're using the certificate on
20:03<Abi12>That's why
20:03<bobby>how is that possible
20:04<Abi12>mtjones: I understand. What's weird is that 1and1 does WP hosting, and THEY did what I'm trying to figure out.
20:05<@mtjones>bobby: You can set up any SSL certificate for any domain. There's nothing in Apache or Nginx that checks the certificate before serving it, other than checking to make sure it's actually an SSL certificate. It doesn't check if it matches the domain.
20:05<Abi12>When visiting wp-admin/wp-content/etc, it doesn't rewrite, but when visiting wp-admin/something or wp-content/something it rewrites.
20:05<@mtjones>Abi12: I think they do that to break wp-admin on purpose, then have a different way to get to wp-admin
20:05<@mtjones>That way, bots and bad actors can't brute force or try to compromise /wp-admin
20:06<Abi12>hmm I see. I guess I'll just tell the web developer to access the panel via wp-login.php xD
20:06<Abi12>mtjones: Thanks heh.
20:07<bobby>so what do i do now
20:07<Abi12>bobby: generate a cert for
20:07<bobby>i did
20:07<Abi12>I think letsencrypt does wildcards, so you could probably use that same cert for
20:08<Abi12>Now in your webserver configuration, specify that specific host to use that specific certificate.
20:09<bobby>im using nginx
20:10<bobby>i re generated the sll a few times
20:10<Abi12>it's working now mate.
20:13<bobby>shows me it still not working
20:14<Abi12>The certificate is fine, but now point that host to a webroot directory niginx has access to.
20:22<bobby>i am
20:22<bobby>idk why its showing phpmyadmin
20:26<bobby>im so confused
20:27<Abi12>That phpmyadmin is showing when you visit the
20:27<bobby>when i go on
20:27<bobby>it shows me phpmyadmin
20:27<bobby>when it should be a blank page'
20:29<bobby>it brings me to phpmyadmin and says its not secure??
20:29<Abi12>It seems like you're using the correct certificate on but using a webroot nginx has no access to. You're using the dungeon certificate on and it's pointing to the same root as the dungeon site.
20:29<bobby>how do i remove that certificate
20:29<Abi12>You've probably written your rules to include something like (.*) and that includes (www, dungeon, all other subdomains )
20:29<Abi12>www is a subdomain just like dungeon bobby
20:30<bobby>dis what i got
20:30<bobby>trying nginx instead of httpd
20:33<bobby>idk why its difficult like this for certs
20:34<Abi12>Is that your full configuration?
20:34<bobby>thats my

20:39-!-The-spiki is "Nenad Spirkoski" on #linode
20:40<bobby>is it imcorrect
20:42<Abi12>I've never used nginx before. You may need to wait until someone who has more knowledge on the matter wakes up.
20:42<Abi12>bobby: try adding to server name field though
20:43<bobby>just did
20:43<bobby>restarted nginx
20:43<Abi12>I think you've set the as your default site too BTW. I'd set your site has the default.
20:43<bobby>now it doesnt show phpmyadmin!
20:44<bobby>how do you figure?
20:45<Abi12>Well. I'm not entirely sure. I can visit and it'll follow the same rules your dungeon subdomain is following, but using the url uses some other ruleset.
20:46-!-spiki [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:46<bobby>how is this possible...
20:46<bobby>i only have dungeon as a subdomain..
20:48<Abi12>That's something you'll need to configure with whomever manages your DNS records. Probably your registrar. There's wildcard options where every single * domain name will be redirected to the A record of
20:48<Abi12>( atleast I think so )
20:49<bobby>i had * and @
20:51<Abi12>You should probably be careful abot hosting your phpMyAdmin panel so openly. Those bots will find it ;)
20:52<Abi12>You could set it to bind onto a seperate port and configure your firewall rules to only allow your home I.P
20:54<Abi12>bobby: fyi - your earlier question about the sftp setup. I referenced this article alot
20:54<bobby>dpo i need the @ and * setup as A records
20:55<bobby> this is what i followed although its out of date
20:55<Abi12>The * A record is wildcard one
20:55<Abi12>is the* wildcard one*
20:56<Abi12>You can remove that one. That's causing the * stuff.
21:01<Cromulent>just to throw this out there you can use MySQL Workbench and an SSH tunnel to your server which should remove the need for phpMyAdmin
21:12<bobby>cromulent do you reckon its as easy to use and more secure this way?
21:12<bobby>can i access this remotely if ever needed?
21:13<bobby>also does work for you now?
21:17<Abi12>You'll need to setup a rule to only allow your ip over the tunnel or else everyone has access to it.
21:18<Abi12>bobby: yes it works.
21:25<bobby>DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN why do i get this lol
21:26<bobby>what fi you try
