09:45<rsdehart>welcome to community chat. anything we can help you with?
09:46<vicc>well, I came with the idea of report an abuse actually
09:47<vicc>but thiss is mostly for support, isn't it?
09:47<vicc>great! thanks :)
09:47<linbot>The staff may or may not be around but if you tell us your problem then someone in here may be able to help
09:48<rsdehart>that's not the one

09:48<rsdehart>yeah something like that

17:31<LouWestin>Good morning
17:35<Ahmad>Good Morning
17:35<Ahmad>I have to ask few questions
17:36<Ahmad>Their is an issue, I linked my domain to linode and when I try to access it, shows an error
17:36<Peng>What's your domain? What's the error?
17:37<LouWestin>Redirects to
17:39<Ahmad>try now, it will be redirected to
17:39<LouWestin>Ok it does now
17:40<Ahmad>but their is a wordpress site files, linked to
17:40<Ahmad>but htis redirect there
17:40<Ahmad>it redirects to
17:42<Ahmad>Is there anyone, who can help me in this regard
17:43<LouWestin>You have a redirect setup somewhere. Either the vhost file or .htacess
17:43<Peng>I think it's an application generating it -- it sets a cookie, and doesn't have a body.
17:44<Ahmad>I checked their is nothing
17:44<LouWestin>Ah k
17:44<Ahmad>Both are the different, they are not linked with eachother

19:31<simplydrew>Hi all - quick question about creating an image. I’ve built a new Linode that I want to use as my golden master for deploying a few additional ones, but I see that the limit is 2GB. My boot volume is the disk I want to capture, but it’s the whole filesystem (50GB) of a standard Linode 2GB instance. Should I shut down the Linode, resize the disk to 2GB, capture it, then resize back to the original?
19:32<simplydrew>Wondering if that will cause issues
19:32<Peng>The 2 GB limit is for how much data the image has, not its total size.
19:33<simplydrew>Hmm, okay. I just noticed that when I tried to create the image it failed, but without a reason. So I was assuming it’s because the size for that disk matches 47688MB
19:33<simplydrew>Is there something else I should do?
19:34<Peng>I don't know. :X
19:34<mrtok>hey i used vpn to create an account but it is from a server in my state says account cancelled
19:35<mrtok>i got no problems with my card from amazon to anywhere else online
19:35<simplydrew>Yeah, looks like when I do a “df -h” that out of the 41GB, I’ve used 3.8GB just in the installation, so this will be challenging.
19:39<mrtok>sent email out lemme know when ya get time can send copy of driver id etc whatever else you may need

21:30<Gunqqer>Hello so I am setting up a mail server with postfix dovecot and mysql and everything is working, except I can't actually send or recive emails. Going through the troubleshooting steps I can't telnet into ports 993 or 995 from the server itself or my computer. I have gone through both the postfix and dovecot sections redoing everything and I haven't gotten any change. There are no firewall rules that are blocking it to my knowlage. What are my next steps?
21:31<millisa>can you reach those ports from the linode itself?
21:35<millisa>did you set your imap/pop services to listen on them?
21:35<millisa>doesn't sound like it
21:36<Gunqqer>I set it how the tutorial said to
21:36<millisa>which tutorial?
21:37<millisa>pastebin your 10-master.conf
21:37<linbot>Please paste longer snippets over at and not in the channel
21:39<millisa>and you restarted dovecot?
21:40<millisa>if you do a 'dovecot -n' you see the config with the 993/995 ports?
21:40<Gunqqer>yup both are appearing
21:41<millisa>do you see dovecot at all in the process list?
21:42<Gunqqer>23285 dovecot
21:43<millisa>what ports is it listening on ( netstat -tulpn |grep dovecot or whatever the 'ss' equivalent is)
21:44<Gunqqer>993 and 995
21:44<millisa>and you can't telnet to those from this linode?
21:44<Gunqqer>nope, last thing it shows is the esc char
21:44<millisa>bpaste the telnet attempt
21:46<millisa>that looks fine
21:46<millisa>i'm able to reach the ports ok from one of my linodes too
21:47<Gunqqer>I was expecting something after like the tutorial said, when it says "like" I guess that means it has a wide range of what counts?
21:47<millisa>I'm not sure I follow what you mean.
21:48<Gunqqer>"If the test is successful, you should see output similar to the following:" ... (last line after esc char line) "220 ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)"
21:48<Gunqqer>I was looking for something like that
21:48<millisa>that's what an smtp connection would look like.
21:48<millisa>that's not what an imap/pop connection would look like
21:48<Gunqqer>interesting, didn't know that
21:49<millisa>you are successfully reaching those ports (it shows 'Connect to <yourip>'. not being connected it would just say it is refused
21:49<millisa>if you wanted to actually test at a command line, you'd probably need to use openssl for the imaps/pops
21:50<Gunqqer>huh, wish the tutorial had just said that, I'd be futher along in the troubleshooting ladder
21:50<millisa>something like this would get you going down the right path: ' openssl s_client -connect '
21:52<millisa>(not that I'd bother trying to do imap/pop command line; but you'd at least get to see it serving up your cert)
21:53<Gunqqer>well, for now Ill continue down the ladder of hell that is troubleshooting :P I'll probably be back with more questions
21:54*LouWestin note to self, don’t setup a mail server
21:56<Gunqqer>It's only been like 6 hours of troubleshooting so far
21:56<Gunqqer>I've burned much more time on fixing a KDE Neon install using lvm+luks
21:58<Gunqqer>inb4 I miss typed a single thing
