07:12<raj>is there a charge for creating a clone of my linode?
07:13<raj>I was going to update ubuntu to 18.04 from 16.04 and wanted to have a backup
07:13<raj>in case the update fails
07:13<raj>also, any issue with doing this update over ssh?
07:14<Eugene>You would be charged for the usage of the cloned Linode for as long as it exists, yup.
07:15<Eugene>A "recommended" path is actually to Clone your Linode, upgrade the Clone, do an IP Swap, and finally clean-up (delete) the original machine once you're confident Backups and all your services are running

09:30<Darxus>spf=neutral ( is neither permitted nor denied by best guess record for domain of
09:31<Darxus>"host -t txt" returns "v=spf1 mx a ptr ip4: ~all" The value of the a record for is, which matches that IP. How is that not an spf match?
09:31<Eugene>lists is a different domain
09:32<Eugene>You need SPF/DKIM/DMARC for each sub/domain that you want to send mail from; not just the top of your domain
09:32<Darxus>Eugene: When I asked yesterday whether I should have the record as or, somebody said the top level is inhereted. But... I'll try that, thanks.
09:33<Eugene>Well, they were wrong
09:33<Darxus>Okay, thanks.
09:35<Darxus>Also, it looks like, since the mx record for resolves to its A and AAAA records, I could use "" instead of ""?
09:36<@pwoods>Sanjay: I'm sorry to hear. Without any backups, that folder most likely cannot be restored.
09:44<Eugene>A: is a better choice IMO.

10:39<cruxeternus>Alright, which one of you killed reddit
10:40<synfinatic>not it
10:41<synfinatic>i mean, i couldn't be the one... all my comcast services (internet, phone and TV) are dead now because I replaced the HDD in my Tivo
10:41<cruxeternus>Possibly... error pages says CDN can't reach origin
10:41<cruxeternus>But sometimes I'm not even getting a response from the CDN
10:42<cruxeternus>Who's another big Cloudflare client?
10:42<LouWestin>Someone using a backhoe didn’t call Julie
10:43-!-Shentino__ [~shentino@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:44<LouWestin>Happened by us. They dug up the cable by the central police dispatch... luckily they had some redundancy
10:47-!-Shentino [~shentino@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:49<LouWestin>Is there a minimum age to signup for Linode? I looked in the legal docs and only saw that in the privacy policy Linode doesn’t market to anyone under 13.

10:59<cruxeternus>Well, I'm not familiar with WordPress, so I'm not sure I can give you any general tips.
10:59<synfinatic>sounds like you should look on the webserver logs and check your nginx/apache/wordpress config

10:59<linbot>New news from community: Why is my restored backup not the same as the original <>
11:00<cruxeternus>But yes, you'll need to track down the specific errors from logs or browser tools.
11:01<synfinatic>knowing if it's a redirect from the webserver or application (wordpress?) would be a good start
11:01-!-Shentino [~shentino@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:01<synfinatic>Chrome Developer Tools can help with that as well
11:01<cruxeternus>Perhaps there's something hard-coded to the old IP or a domain you haven't changed over.

13:58<LouWestin>Minus the actual age. The laws are strange since Facebook will allow you to join if you’re 13 or >. Technically you’re entering into a legal agreement too.

14:10<LouWestin>Dwfreed: Reason I ask is, the XYL things our one daughter should setup a FB page for her art and photography. I’d say at least have a portfolio site just so you have something you’re more in control of.

14:32<@TaraNT>LouWestin your daughter can use Terraform to provision a Linode environment for a personal portfolio that ties to a Facebook Page to share her work so she can have the best of both worlds with a bit more control and independence.
14:34<LouWestin>TaraNT: Ok I’ll look into that too. Thanks!
14:36<nyancat>RIP my uptime
14:37<LouWestin>You’ve been on for a week so far
14:38<nyancat>LouWestin: One of my linodes apparently got rebooted and migrated today to a differnet node
14:38<nyancat>It's the one I run all my dronebl checks from so it reset all my screens :(
14:42<LouWestin>Yikes... emergency repair?
14:43<nyancat>guess so
14:43<nyancat>literally the only info was "We have detected an issue affecting the physical host on which your Linode resides."
14:44<nyancat>looks like i'm still rocking the same xeon gold so maybe the migration hasnt taken place yet
14:44<nyancat>they did say it was a "live" migration

15:17<nyancat>It is slightly concerning as all the proxies I’ve tested from my removal queue so far have tested negative
15:17<nyancat>Usually I’ve got one or two positive results by now :/
15:18<nyancat>This was meant for another channel, apologies
15:18<Eugene>Have you tried turning it off and back on again
15:19<nyancat>Oh wow, my first hit
15:19<cruxeternus>Shame on you Eugene.. running an open proxy
15:20<Eugene>Not recently ?
15:21<nyancat>What I’m wondering is how did it take this one particular guy two years to realize there was a problem
15:22<nyancat>His listing is over 2 years old and this is the first request for removal I’ve ever seen from him. An absolute shit reason at that.
15:22<nyancat>Hell. Still the wrong channel.
15:22*cruxeternus is fascinate though.

17:27<kharlan11>Does anyone know what obligation linode has to store connection logs? What if a US court ordered connection logs from 6 months ago for example.
17:28<kharlan11>The overhead for something like that doesn't seem economically possible.
17:29<DrJ>kharlan11: they store no connection logs for connections to your server
17:29<DrJ>as in, like if someone ssh'd or accessed a website
17:29<kharlan11>hmm and they're not legally obligated to?
17:29<DrJ>of course minus the fact that your server surely logs such things and they of course store the server

17:30<DrJ>in some cases a court order could force them to
17:30<kharlan11>Does the same apply for let's say.. an email provider. They wouldn't be binded by law to store sent/received emails for X months?
17:30<DrJ>but again, a court order could
17:30<kharlan11>yeah, I'm talking about before the order.
17:31<DrJ>outside of a court order a company like linode isn't required to log anything
17:31<kharlan11>A client of mine doesn't understand that our email vendor isn't obligated to store mailbox snapshots for x months by default.. they didn't want to pay for archiving \o/
17:31<nate>Linode is a US company, they're not necessarily upheld by the laws elsewhere with exception of maybe locations they have systems at (and even then it would probably would only apply to that location). That said VPS companies don't generally log that level of connection data, that would be an IMMENSE amount of data :P

17:31<kharlan11>yeah, I kinda assumed that.
17:31<DrJ>now the catch again is linodes will log by default and a court order could force linode to make a snapshot of that server and hand it over, which would contain logs
17:31<kharlan11>Thanks all :)
17:32<nate>Oh yeah that kinda stuff? Yeah no, no company is mandated to keep backups
17:32<DrJ>let me rephrase that, OSes running inside a linode will log by default in most cases
17:34<nate>Yeah. Sounds like they have a disgruntled client though that provider snapshots/backups weren't being done
17:34<kharlan11>They didn't want to pay for it.
17:35<nate>Sounds like your client doesn't understand cost efficiency :P
17:35<kharlan11>most clients don't.
17:35<kharlan11>until something happens, and they freak.

19:05<Sameir>Hello any advices ?
19:05<Sameir>Sorry i was disconnected
19:06<nuevu>I think you'll find that any differences in "speed" are going to largely be obscured by your software stack.
19:07<nuevu>It's doubtful that the differences matter *that* much right now. The best thing to do is just try one or more with your actual code/site and see how it does.

19:16<|GIG>Only been with linode a couple months but so far I've been impressed with the reliability and uptime. It's far superior to all the 'budget' places that are out there. And Linode is close to the same price.
19:17<|GIG>Im only using the shared VPS I have, for an IRCD server. But its bee 100% so far.

22:01<FormyKniight>Hey I am wanting to buy a VPS and wanted to know if Linodes offers windows servers?
22:02<nate>Was the "Lin" in linode would imply, officially they do not :P. There are to my understanding still ways you can technically 'custom' install, via a decent bit of effort lol
22:02<linbot>It is possible to run Windows on !kvm Linodes. Here's a set of unofficial instructions:
22:02<LouWestin>FormyKniight see above link
22:03<kharlan11>^ Thanks LouWestin :p
22:04<FormyKniight>AH yes I know how to set up in KVM still it would require a higher plan as more RAM is going to be needed, ram for the VPS and ram for the KVM
22:04<FormyKniight>Was wanting to test the VPS still would require a some effort, downloading ISO etc just to test.
22:05<LouWestin>yep yep
22:05<FormyKniight>And haha did put two and two together in the linode for linux nodes
22:05<LouWestin>and you're welcome kharlan11
22:06<FormyKniight>Well how easy is it to open ports on the VPS?
22:07<Toba>it depends on your distro
22:07<FormyKniight>To see if it should be worth my time, are they automatically opened ? Some have to go through a hassle just to get ports open.
22:07<Toba>it is more secure to always make it a conscious decision to open the ports
22:08<Toba>sometimes you end up with stuff you never configured properly or didn't intend to use, exposed on the internet.
22:08<LouWestin>Centos has a firewall turned on by default
22:08<Toba>It's not that hard to open ports
22:08<LouWestin>Debian doesn't

22:10<Fortmyknigght>Thanks, so debian/ubuntu has no firewall so ports are automatically opened, then centro has firewall on by default meaning I would neef to do more configuration.
22:10<kharlan11>it's pretty simple to install ufw and do 'ufw default deny incoming' and the same for outgoing
22:10<LouWestin>Cent is on by default and has 22 open
22:10<kharlan11>and the windows firewall opens up a lot of useless stuff :P.

22:11<Fortmyknigght>Ah on mobile mb.
22:11<LouWestin>There should be a good IRC client on mobile
22:12<Fortmyknigght>Ok so yea I mean it would probably be a better route to go ubuntu and leave the ones I am to use open and disable the ones I am not to use.
22:12<LouWestin>Well you can disable cent's firewall
22:12<LouWestin>or configure it to what you need
22:12<Fortmyknigght>So in general terms if I buy a VPS debian/ubuntu and go to it should show them as open correct?
22:12<kharlan11>if you install web server, yes.
22:13<Fortmyknigght>Without me having a server running as of yet.
22:13<kharlan11>and get a ssl certificate and configure it correctly.
22:13<LouWestin>for SSL I'd run certbot Let's encrypt
22:13<Fortmyknigght>Oh ok so only shows as open only when a server is running?
22:13<Fortmyknigght>Tjat is using such port?
22:14<LouWestin>you need either apache or nginx to serve the web page/site
22:14<kharlan11>or lighttpd*
22:14<kharlan11>Don't forget the best.
22:14<LouWestin>by default port 80 and 443
22:14<LouWestin>I learn new things here every day
22:15<LouWestin>are you looking to run a webserver?

22:15<LouWestin>gone again
22:15<kharlan11>I think he's misunderstanding.

22:17<Fortmyknight>Ah disconnetec again couldnt see answer to my last question if there was one.
22:17<LouWestin>ok so Fortmyknight you know this is an un-managed service?
22:19<Fortmyknight>Un managed service ? Havent looked into it.
22:19<LouWestin>ok, that means that you have to install and setup everything
22:19<LouWestin>ah... let me pull up a guide
22:20<Fortmyknight>Ah ok I mean I can do setting everything up on my own.
22:20<Fortmyknight>Still the problem lies in port forwarding/opening ports, havent done so in like 6 years.
22:21<LouWestin>k. just in case and then there's guide to install the web server, php, mysql, etc, etc
22:21<Fortmyknight>I want ro run a game server
22:21<LouWestin>when you get to the secure your server guide that covers the port stuff
22:22<LouWestin>You won't be port-forwarding most likely since you're not running a Linksys router
22:22<Fortmyknight>Ok was hoping to get a answer to the last question I asled before dcing. If i set up Ubuntu once I go to would ports automatically show as open or do I first need to have a server running in which is listening to such port?
22:23<LouWestin>no you need to set up everything
22:23<Fortmyknight>Ah ok,
22:23<LouWestin>point the domain to the server's IP address, etc. That's easy in Linode's manager
22:24<LouWestin>and you have to allow or not your firewall to handle port stuff
22:24<LouWestin>it's in the secure guide
22:25<LouWestin>gotta go now for dinner. It's a great service just follow the guides
22:25<Fortmyknight>Ok thank you will read in. Thabk you so kuch for answering my questions
