hibbyhaving some non-critical server issues02:06
hibbyand was wondering if anyone was around to discuss how I can sort them?02:07
ScottKhibby: Best ask specific questions and see if anyone can answer.02:07
hibbyright, well. I've got a system running as a server for providing my flat with files /audio/video.  More or less working as a NAS, but I like to use it as a development webserver too, and ssh in from around the world regularly02:09
hibbywe ran out of internal drive space, so bought an external drive. I want to be able to access files on it, but in the existing folders, so I've ln -s to the various folders I want on the external drive into the shared folders02:10
hibbyI can access the files perfectly through xmbc - im watching heroes that way just now02:10
SmokeyD1hey people. I am running tripwire on hardy-server in a xen virtual machine.02:10
hibbybut my desktop system won't recognise the links as folders02:10
SmokeyD1I have my tripwire policy running fine02:10
SmokeyD1tripwire only complains that /proc/12007/fd/4 and /proc/12007/tasks/fd/4 don't exist02:11
SmokeyD1what are they? Something to do with a floppydisk?02:11
hibbyI've tried sharing the external drive too, but that's not working. Any suggestions?02:11
SmokeyD1which indeed my virtual machine doesn't gave02:11
SmokeyD1how do I prevent tripwire from checking it? I can't find any references in twpol.txt02:12
CppIsWeirdmy server has ubuntu server 7.10, all of the sudden recently when i boot it up it does not get an IP from my router, i have to plug in peripherals and ifconfig up down the adapter. Any ideas why?04:42

axisyshow would I know if I need to reboot the server after dong the aptitude full-upgrade14:29
andolaxisys: If there is a new kernel you'll need to reboot.14:32
RainCTWhat do you guys recommend as cPanel alternative? Webmin?14:52
ScottKRainCT: I recommend vim, but ebox is the one generally recommended.14:52
RainCTScottK: Thanks. Me too (well, not vim, but the command line :)), but I also want to install some more graphical thing.. (Working on a research project for school)14:54
ScottKI've never used it, but ebox is the one you want.14:55
axisysandol: when else do I need to reboot?15:01
axisysandol: i saw libssl upgrade on my laptop asked to restart it15:02
ScottKThat's one of the few.  If you subscribe to the security announcements they say in them if a reboot is needed.15:02
axisysandol: is there some similar notification thru email or in the terminal ?15:02
ScottKThere is a terminalish place to look, but I don't recall it.  I mostly just read the security announements.15:03
axisysScottK: i use apticron to receive alerts when upgrade is necessary .. but a immediate terminal level notification would really help15:04

heath|workHow can you reliably swap sata drives if the scsi numbers change on them after reboots?16:14
RoyKheath|work: iirc ubuntu uses UUIDs in /etc/fstab, so it shouldn't matter much16:15
heath|workRoyK, the problem isn't with mounts.  The problem is actually trying to write a backup script for removable drives using scsiadd16:16
RoyKbut why should the scsi id/device name change?16:16
heath|workfor example If I need to remove a drive I have to issue scsiadd -r 2 0 0 016:16
heath|workRoyK, that's what I am trying to figure out.16:16
RoyKsorry - can't help, then16:17
RoyKno idea where that '15' came from16:17
heath|worklol... it's cool16:17
heath|workI thought you 15 years old telling me about UUID's16:17
heath|workI was about to say you need to watch more tv or something16:18
RoyKI guess there are 15-year-olds out there that know about UUIDs these days16:18
RoyKI guess I was 16 or so when I wrote my first boot loader in assembly16:19
heath|workI didn't really catch an interest in computers till about 1816:22
heath|workthen I was stupid and used winblows for a while till I saw the light16:23
heath|workWhen you setup RAID with mdadm, do you need to manually enter info into the mdadm.conf file, or is everything fine after creating an md dev?16:53

heath|worknice... thanks16:58
=== jussio1 is now known as jussi01
RoyKheath|work: still, the md code is somehow outdated unless you need RAID > 117:02
RoyKif you just want mirroring, the LVM code is far more flexible17:03
heath|workwhat would you suggest?  I need raid one here, but raid 10 at home17:03
RoyKI'd suggest using lvm for mirroring17:04
RoyKlvm can do striping as well, so I guess 1+0 should work well17:04
* RoyK checks17:04
RoyKseems if you need raid-1+0, the best would be to setup mdadm mirrors and then span them with lvm17:06
heath|workreally, I need to use both?17:11
heath|workI have raid10 up and running with just mdadm at home right now17:11
stephankHi! I'm trying to set up slapd with tls. So far so good it seems, it finds the certificate and key, a remote host can connect using ldapwhoami. My problem is that phpldapadmin doesn't connect, saying "Could not start TLS."17:47
stephankIt looks like I've ended up in a fight with gnutls. It's not picking up my ca cert in /etc/ssl/certs! Does gnutls have a different default location somewhere?17:48
stephank(I got ldapwhoami working by setting TLS_CACERT in /etc/ldap/ldap.conf, but phpldapadmin is not picking this up :(17:49
stephankbah, gnutls is winning... at losing from openssl o_O18:04
pionican anyone help me with setting up a lvm mirrored disk?18:06
toehiocan somebody please explain to me how you should set-up users on a server that has multiple services (games, ftp, web, irc, etc)19:59
sommertoehio: most applications will use system user's by default, so adduser and useradd are good utilities for that20:06
toehiobut how about the files for all the servers such as the web server and game server?20:07
sommertoehio: not sure what you mean?20:10
toehioI am running a game server (wolfenstein enemy territory)20:10
toehioand it has lots of files20:11
toehiowhere should it be installed?20:11
sommertoehio: I usually install third party stuff like that into /opt20:11
sommertoehio: so /opt/wolf or something similar is what I'd do20:11
toehiook, thank you for you help20:12
sommertoehio: then you can symlink any binaries into /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin20:12
sommertoehio: np20:12
toehiothe default installation dir for this game is "/usr/local/games/enemy-territory"20:12
toehiowould that be a good place?20:12
sommertoehio: sure, really the best thing with third party apps is to place them somewhere you'll remember20:13
toehiohow about starting it?20:14
sommertoehio: I like /opt/ because the path is shorter than /usr/local, but it's really just a preference20:14
toehiowhat user should i use?20:14
toehiobecause its not a daemon with its own user20:14
sommertoehio: should work with any user with rights to /usr/local/games/enemy-territory20:14
toehiothank you20:15

jam59Hello folks. Just installed Ubuntu server including the LAMP option but can't get Apache2 to parse PHP files. They run from the command line, however. Any ideas?22:54
RainCTjam59: any error message?22:56
RainCTand, just to be sure, you have libapache2-mod-php5 installed?22:56
agentkjam59: Worked out of the box for me w/ 8.04 and 8.1022:57
jam59RainCT: The browser tries to download the file with the message: "You have chosen to open [blank] which is a application/x-trash"22:57
jam59I've run the suggested tests to see if PHP module is installed and it is.22:58
Faust-Cjam59: you restarted apache22:59
jam59Faust-C: I did.22:59
jam59Any ideas?23:02
NCommanderRainCT, I'm VERY VERY VERY scared of doing a openssh backport; if it breaks, we're in the ****23:08
RainCTjam59: how are you trying to access the file?23:09
ScottKNCommander: + about a billion.23:09
ScottKNCommander: BTW, did you see what happened with the unbound backport?23:09
RainCTohh, it contains ssh-keygen, nice package :P23:09
jam59RainCT: I'm trying to access it via http and the command line.23:10
NCommanderScottK, no, obviously something broke if your telling me23:10
RainCTjam59: yeah, but which URL?23:10
jam59RainCT: The default: jamarks.com23:10
RainCTNCommander: it's OK, I'll go the PPA way then23:10
ScottKNCommander: Yeah.  Fix committed already.23:10
NCommanderSchneeSchwarz, sorry about that23:10
NCommanderdamn autocomplete23:10
jam59RainCT: Right now, index.php is in the default directory for jamarks.com23:11
RainCTjam59: oh, dedicated server? :).   did you modify some config file, and if so can you paste it somewhere?23:11
RainCTjam59: http://jamarks.com/index.php - works23:12
jam59RainCT: No, I didn't modify any config files. I just installed Ubuntu - including the LAMP option - and started using the server. index.html works fine when it's enabled. index.php doesn't.23:12
RainCTjam59: I see a index.php which is working, and the "save.." dialog being showed by index.html23:13
jam59RainCT: Ok, damn. It's working now. :)23:16
jam59RainCT: Why do configurations fail UNTIL you ask someone?  :)23:16
RainCTjam59: oh, that's the magic of computing..23:17
jam59RainCT: Thanks for, you know, whatever you did or didn't do, or for allowing me to look foolish. :)23:17
RainCTLOL. Always a pleasure ;P23:17
jam59RainCT: This is weird, though (and maybe why I thought it wasn't working): jamarks.com/index.php works but jamarks.com (without expressly requesting index.php) doesn't.23:19
jam59RainCT: index.php should be served if no specific page is requested, shouldn't it? Maybe I need to look at the config file. Isn't that always the default?23:19
RainCTjam59: no, index.html and some other files come before it (perhaps also some default.<something>, not sure if those come before or after index.php)23:20
RainCTjam59: is index.php the only file you have in there?23:21
jam59RainCT: I just changed index.php to test.php and reinstated index.html23:22
jam59RainCT: So now, there are those two files: test.php and index.html23:22
jam59RainCT: And it's not seeing the index.html by default file when you go to jamarks.com23:23
jam59RainCT: Except it is in another browser (Safari)... Maybe my Firefox browser is hosed...23:24
RainCTjam59: try removing/renaming index.html23:25
RainCTwait, if you renamed index.php nvm23:25
jam59RainCT: Yeah, it's gotta be the browser. Several other browsers are pulling up the index.html file by default without any problem...23:25
jam59RainCT: So, again, I look foolish! :)23:25
RainCTw3m works too23:26
RainCTjam59: not you, Firefox looks foolish ^^23:26
