06:47<Absar>hello is there any Linode dedicated support staff i m looking for dedicated server
06:48<@jcardillo>hi Absar. do you mean a dedicated CPU server?
06:48<@jcardillo>a full list of our server plans is here:
06:52<Absar>can i have a custom server
06:54<@rdaniels>Hi Absar! The link jcardillo provided list all of our available plans, including our Dedicated CPU plans. Did you have a specific question about this plan that we could help with?
06:56-!-dsapikas [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:57<Absar>i m looking for cpu E# 1230 v3 or v7 or in that range with 16 GB RAM and 1 TB SSD
06:58<Absar>includes cpanel license
06:59<nate>Absar: As they said linode's are pre-built virtual instances mostly w/ some dedicated -CPU- instances. They don't really do custom dedicated systems. You might want to look at their dedicated CPU plans
06:59<Absar>yeah sure
07:00<@rdaniels>Thanks, nate! Absar, we also have a service called Managed that comes with a cPanel license.
07:03<Absar>Sure signing up. Though i think there should be more time saving option than that
07:03<Absar>its asking for preload amount
07:04<@rdaniels>Absar: We are always trying to improve the experience for our customers. I'd love to pass along your feedback. What could make the signup process easier for you?
07:04<Absar>i m not sure about the package why should i preload
07:05<Cromulent>you can preload say $10 then add your credit card for monthly payments
07:05<Cromulent>or you can top up your account from paypal
07:05<Absar>why should i preload even 1 $ dear
07:05<@rdaniels>Yes. We do require that a credit card is on file for customer accouts.
07:05<Cromulent>no idea - I don't think I had to
07:06<Absar>atleast make me your customer first than ask for credit card info
07:06<Absar>i m not your customer uptill now

07:06-!-skule [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:06<rsdehart>what difference does it make?
07:07<rsdehart>the credit card info is used to verify you
07:07<rsdehart>that's like saying "treat me as verified before attempting to verify me"
07:07<Absar>i have verified by email that i m not fake
07:07<rsdehart>anyone can send an email.
07:08<Cromulent>there are a lot of scammers trying to get VPS instances - I'm not surprised Linode have these restrictions
07:08<Absar>no you send an email to verify my email i did that though it means i own that email and i m not a robot
07:08<rsdehart>they'll still likely verify you by credit card
07:09<nate>That doesn't mean anything, there are throwaway email accounts all over the place, yes it proves you're not a robot but it doesn't necessarily prove you're financially capable should you go past the trial period
07:09<Absar>secondly i m looking for server. If i opt for server than surely you provide me that after adding my credit card info
07:09<rsdehart>well, you came in here saying you want a dedicated server
07:09<Absar>i dont want any trial period
07:09<rsdehart>linode is a vps provider
07:09<Absar>got your point thanks mate
07:09<rsdehart>so I"m not sure who told you they were anythying other
07:10<Absar>no one told me
07:10<Absar>anyways have a good day

07:38<chesty>weird, they were talking in australian yet used "dear" which i most often see used by someone learning english.

09:49<@bbigger>hey there
09:49<Lizwi>how are you
09:50<Lizwi>i need some help
09:50<@bbigger>feel free to ask any questions
09:50<Lizwi>can i deply stackscript on a existing image?
09:53<@bbigger>StackScripts are run on initial deployment or rebuild, so on their own they aren't suitable for running on existing images
09:53<@bbigger>however, there are several tools for configuration management that you can use for your Linodes
09:53<@bbigger>here's our collection of docs on those:
09:53<Cromulent>I've been playing around with PowerShell Core Lizwi - it might help you
09:54<Lizwi>Thanks guys, actually i want to install LAMP
09:54<Lizwi>in an existing image
09:54<Cromulent>a python script would be that pretty easily
09:55<Lizwi>please share the script
09:55<Lizwi>url or something
09:55<Cromulent>oh you'd need to write it yourself - I don't have one on hand
09:55<@bbigger>if you're using Debian or Ubuntu, you could quickly set up a LAMP stack with tasksel
09:56<@bbigger>example in our Ubuntu 18.04 guide:
09:56<Lizwi>@bbigger thank you let me look at it, @Cromulent thank u aswell :)

09:56-!-V-Pariah is "Vicious Pariah" on #linode
09:57<Lizwi>@bbigger do you have url for CentOS7
09:58<@bbigger>I'm not aware of a one-liner that will get you LAMP set up on CentOS7, but you could run through our guide to get that done here:
10:03<Lizwi>@bbigger, does it cost to rebuild?
10:03<@bbigger>nope! no extra cost to rebuild
10:05<Lizwi>does stackscripts have a separate costs?
10:05<@bbigger>nope, StackScripts are free to create and use, regardless of whether they're personal or from the community
10:07<@bbigger>for future reference, we also have similar One-Click apps, including a LAMP app, for use when creating new Linodes
10:07<Lizwi>oh okay thanks bbigger
10:07<@bbigger>sure thing

11:08<primitiv>"/var/www/unsocialise/public_html/app/sessions/238179/primitivmedia" folder is not writable. i keep getting this error
11:08<primitiv>even when i set 777 to the folder
11:09<primitiv>i even deleted the folder made sure it has the proper 777 and apache is the user who runs it
11:09<primitiv>but it keeps giving me the same issue
11:09<millisa>more selinux fun?
11:09<primitiv>i dont think thats the culprit
11:09<primitiv>what was the command you had me enter taht gave me hierachy ls -l basicall44y
11:09<primitiv>so i can check from top to bottom
11:09<millisa>The audit.log probably has a hint
11:10<linbot>New news from community: Ram Upgrade <>
11:10<millisa>ausearch could search it
11:11<millisa>ausearch -m avc -c httpd <--- might be a place to start, assuming you are doing apache things.
11:11<millisa>it might be some form of php too if it's php that's having thew rite prob
11:12<millisa>if it's nginx, this url is pretty good:
11:16<primitiv>this one isnt nginx
11:16<primitiv>httpd / apache
11:16<millisa>does it have selinux? sestatus should say
11:31<primitiv>sorry busy day at work calls ocming in nonstop
11:39<primitiv>its disabled
11:39<primitiv>ausearch -m avc -c httpd ->> no matches
11:44<millisa>if it's not selinux, then it's probably really is a permission issue
11:46<millisa>use 'namei -mov /path/you/care/about' to make sure it looks appropriate for the user doing a write
11:49<primitiv>seems correct?
11:50<primitiv>ii believei t is permission but idk what changed
11:50<linbot>New news from community: Upgrade PHP 5.6 to 7.2 <>
11:51<millisa>you listed another level of folder below that. does the folder exist?
11:51-!-dsapikas [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:52<primitiv>pno i deleted primitivmedia
11:52<primitiv>when i create it
11:52<primitiv>i gave it unsocliase apache
11:52<primitiv>775 even 777
11:52<primitiv>still says cannot write, then my app deletes the folder i created
11:53<primitiv>swhich would indicate it has delete permissions
11:53<millisa>what is the app running as?
11:54<primitiv>all httpd is running as apache
11:54<primitiv>so apache, the a pp doesnt change the usse
11:55<millisa>is the app php?
11:56<millisa>is it php-fpm or mod_php?

11:58<primitiv>thank you millisa
12:05<primitiv>whats a ood command to see where most ofi t got used u[?
12:05<primitiv>most of it*
12:05<millisa>i like ncdu

12:20<primitiv>how do i fix this?
12:21<primitiv>i freed 2gb but i still cant install
12:21<Peng>Do "df" and "df -i" show that there is free space and free inodes?
12:22-!-redentor [] has joined #linode
12:22-!-redentor is "realname" on #debian-next #debian-es #debian-mx #debian #linode
12:22<millisa>yes. -i should show inode usage
12:26<primitiv>thi is df -i
12:36<primitiv>not sure what its outputting it seems there is free space no?
12:36<millisa>that would be showing free inodes.
12:36<millisa>df -h would probably be what you want
12:41<primitiv>im usure on what to delete
12:41<primitiv>how do i find the size of the folders
12:41<primitiv>its still 100% used even if i deleted 2GB\
12:42<millisa>something like: du -sh /*
12:44<primitiv>that cant be right
12:44<primitiv>... /etc has 63Gb used holy cr**p
12:44<nuevu>That is an unusual place to have a lot of data.
12:44<primitiv>thats what im thinking
12:44<primitiv>i assumed it would all be from the /var/www
12:45<millisa>do keep hunting; du -sh /etc/*
12:45<primitiv>if i dont respond sorry super busy at work\
12:45<primitiv>is there a way to stop this chat from timing out BTW?
12:45<primitiv>i hate having to re-login after X amount of time
12:46<primitiv>var is only 10Gb
12:46<primitiv>is 63GB
12:46<primitiv>.. /etc/backups
12:46<Cromulent>use IRCCloud :)
12:47<primitiv>can i use kiwichat?
12:47<millisa>that's a weird place to put backups
12:47<Cromulent>the free version lets you connect to two or three servers
12:47<Cromulent>and then you use your browser
12:47<primitiv>whats weird is i have no idea whst in there but ill have a OMFG moment in 2 mins i knowi will
12:48<primitiv>also it says free trial expirres in 7 days, is there an actual free version?
12:49<Cromulent>yes there is a free version
12:50<Cromulent>oh ignore me you can only stay connected for 2 hours after 7 days
12:50<Cromulent>that sucks
12:50<Cromulent>but it is well worth the £35 a year
12:53<primitiv>crap :(
12:54<primitiv>is there a way to delete my account i just created ?

14:51<primitiv>so whats a good free client for me to use

15:11-!-jonh [] has joined #linode
15:11-!-jonh is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
15:12<Zr40>it's been ages since I've used windows, but if you just want an irc client without anything fancy, try hexchat
15:13<jonh>I have been trying to get support from Linode. I have a Postgres database that runs in Linode, on Saturday it had to have emergency maintence performed. It appears they applied a backup from March to the database. I have automatic backup turned on, but thanks to how the daily backups work the latest I can restore to before that happened is the 11th. Does Linode have access to older backups that they could restore to?
15:13<millisa>on osx limechat is similarly unfancy
15:14<Zr40>I don't believe Linode actually keeps backups that old, let alone uses them to restore from disk failure without consulting with you
15:15<jonh>So I had a manual backup from march that I forgot about, for some reason the much older backup was used instead of the more recent automatic one.
15:15<millisa>You've got 4 slots - your daily, the last weekly, the weekly before that, and your manual slot
15:15<millisa>It should show all four on the backups tab in the old manager
15:16<jonh>I was hoping maybe they didn't delete them immediately and support had access to older daily backups. It does show me all 4
15:17<jonh>So far I have not actually been able to get support to understand what happened. Incredibly frustrating that when the emergency maintence happened they restored the wrong backup and now I am forced to restore to a backup from a week ago
15:17<millisa>it'd unlikely; sounds like a compliance nightmare on their side to keep stuff beyond what they tell you. if you've got a ticket open already, it's probably worth calling them since it sounds important.
15:18<millisa>linode restored a backup for you?
15:18<Zr40>jonh: it's also unlike any emergency maintenance that has occurred to my instances. Typically they only need to move the current disk images to another host. It's not a restore-from-backup
15:20<jonh>That is what it seems happened, Saturday a ticket was opened for "Emergency Maintenance" on the host the VM runs on. The data lines up with that manual backup that I have sitting there (I should have deleted it a long time ago, but that's a different story). So I don't really know what happened honestly, just trying to get answers
15:20<Zr40>when you look in syslog, do you see anything from before the emergency maintenance but after the supposed date of the backup?
15:20-!-nicolaus [] has quit [Quit: ZNC -]
15:21<millisa>What zr40 said. An emergency maintenance on the host hardware that requires migration to a new host doesn't cause them to restore a backup. They move the state of the system when it was written to disk. it's more like a system that'd had a power loss than anything
15:22<Zr40>or postgres logs, in case you only have journalctl that's not configured to persist logs to disk

15:22-!-nicolaus is "Nicolás" on #linode
15:24<Zr40>postgres logs might be most helpful actually. On startup, it logs something like: LOG: database system was shut down at 2019-08-14 08:36:00 CEST
15:25<Zr40>so look for that to see what the database thinks was its previous shutdown time

17:20<cps>is anyone else seeing lots of chinese bots on their site(s)?
17:20<millisa>since 1998
17:21<cps>heh, i mean more than normal :)
17:21<cps>like 10x
17:24<millisa>not china specifically; I saw a rampup of the botnet hits that use the user agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:62.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/62.0 last week
17:24<millisa>there were more digital ocean IP's than china though...
17:30<nuevu>OVH IPs have to be the worst, though. Script kiddies that don't even bother to follow 301 redirects. Hey, I'm trying to make your attempts at "vulnerability scanning" secure.
