06:00<chesty>is there a reason you're using mysql/mariadb?
06:01<nate>chesty: Cause it's better :P
06:01<nate>But no really it does fit better for these needs
06:01<nate>but I'm currently trying to do a hell-grade merger of different databases into a single source and the RETURNING feature for snagging ID's would be so much nicer than last_insert_id()
06:03<chesty>shots fired.
06:05<nate>honestly database layer wouldn't even matter, the integrity is a disaster
06:05<nate>there are tables cross-tied but some of them have straight up deleted rows
06:06<chesty>you've chosen the right database if integrity is a disaster

10:40<linbot>Peng_: The root password reset option doesnt work for my Linode. How can I reset my root password? | Linode Questions
10:41<Peng_>I get 502 Bad Gateway. :/
10:42<Peng_>Maybe because I logged in with my oldest account?
10:43<Peng_>And redirects to which returns a Cloudflare error page saying my IP is banned. \o/
10:44<LouWestin>Maybe your account didn’t get merged over with the change?
10:50*Peng_ clears cookies, forces refresh, logs in again \o/
10:52<LouWestin>Did that clear it?
10:52<LouWestin>Fix it I mean
10:59<FluffyFoxeh>Peng_: also redirects to wp-login.php and the "banned" error page
10:59<FluffyFoxeh>for me
11:00<FluffyFoxeh>But the question link works fine
11:01<FluffyFoxeh>Is supposed to be used?
11:01<FluffyFoxeh>The "Log In" link on the website points to
11:11<Peng_>The login link in goes to the bad place
11:12<Peng_> has a login link going to a third place (that works)

11:31<schlimig>Hi. Are there are Linode staff who can help? Due to a mixup with a cancelled card, the payment was missed and now my Linode is suspended. I have made 2 payments now (so am in credit) and the system both times said payment failed and hasn't reactivated my linode... we're in the middle of selling tickets for an event this evening so I'm desperately trying to get things back online!
11:32<dwfreed>mcintosh: ^
11:35<@bbigger>schlimig could you open a Support ticket and share your ticket number here so we can take a look?
11:36<schlimig>@bbigger ticket number: 13417297
11:36<schlimig>Thanks :)
11:36<@bbigger>sure thing, taking a look now

11:38<cruxeternus>I guess some memes have reached oversaturation...
11:38<dwfreed>no such thing
11:41<rsdehart>cruxeternus: get out
11:47<schlimig>@bbigger thank you so much for your help, the other two tickets were duplicates opened by my colleague, please feel free to delete those as they are not necessary any longer.
11:47*cruxeternus cheers.

14:51<millisa>this one -
15:44<nate>reading up, as a fremont user I didn't get any messages so
16:05<linbot>New news from community: Why is fail2ban flushlogs using 100% of my Linode's CPU? <>
16:20-!-descender [~heh@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:46<gparent>it's telling you you should ban fail2ban
16:49<LouWestin>Interestingly it was a staff post and they mentioned about compressing the log files being an issue. Makes sense.
16:52<gparent>yeah was reading through the github issues
16:53<LouWestin>I didn’t get that far. lol
16:54<gparent>you'll be quizzed later
16:56<LouWestin>On a side note. I was just looking at Debian 11 notes and they’re saying PHP will be updated from 7.0 to 7.3. I’m confused because Deb 10 already has 7.3
16:56<LouWestin>Oh crap... I better jump on it!
16:57<LouWestin>Link for reference:
16:59-!-anomie [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
16:59<LouWestin>Also JDK 11 is on Deb 10 already.
17:02<millisa>don't see it reported. maybe it's your time to shine.
17:04<gparent>arent all of these wrong?
17:04<gparent>probably not updated yet
17:04<millisa>looks like it was just copied from the buster release notes
17:05<millisa>comparing page4 on and
17:08<LouWestin>I know JDK 8 was updated in...Deb 9
17:08<LouWestin>Right right. Probably not updated yet.
17:09<gparent>changelog: increased a lot of numbers
17:38<LouWestin>I’ll wait for the more official release notes. I don’t even think they’re anywhere near the freeze point yet.
