veebullanyone know where to find a description or explanation of the install options presented by the Server install CD?01:54
veebullThey don't seem to be covered in the official docs, and the pages on boot options and boot parameters in the Community Docs are for the Desktop Live CD version... which doesn't appear to match.01:55

demonsporkusing Ubuntu 10.04 on an HP Proliant DL380 G3, when I SSH into my server it takes 5-10 seconds to challenge for authentication (either password or key) but the server has like a 45ms ping when I ping it directly04:52
demonsporkI also have another possibly related bug with minecraft, when logging into the server it sometimes times out the login for minecraft04:53
demonsporkI have no idea where to being solving this04:54

=== pex is now known as HarryMuffin
HarryMuffinI had that same issue but fixed it with a manual entry for the connecting host in the /etc/hosts file. Dunno why it worked but it did06:25
demonsporkHarryMuffin, explain this fix further plase06:27
demonsporkwhat type of entry06:27
demonsporkwhat did you have to add06:27
HarryMuffinit was on a land so I added the hostname / ip to the /etc/hosts file06:35
HarryMuffiner.. lan06:35
HarryMuffinso the line was "machine-name   ipaddress"06:35
demonsporkwhich machine06:42
demonsporkare you talking about the local machine or the one trying to connect06:42
HarryMuffinthe one you are connecting to06:50
demonsporkHarryMuffin, I just tried that and it didn't seem to do it :(07:01
demonsporkjust want to make sure I understand it entirely: say the server is named "server1" and the computer I am on right now is named "bob"  in the /etc/hosts/ for server1 I need to add what exactly?07:05
HarryMuffinbe sure to do a "/etc/init.d/networking restart"07:05
cwillu_at_workediting /etc/hosts doesn't require a networking restart07:06
HarryMuffinnevermind that last line then07:06
cwillu_at_workthere's an option for sshd to not try to resolve connecting ip addresses, which is probably a better fix07:07
HarryMuffinthere ya go07:07
cwillu_at_workthat should actually be the default07:07

Mateo_Hi everyone !11:12
Mateo_I have a simple question to start :) I'm using pure-pw and i have created a user , owner of /home/mywebsite/11:13
Mateo_the user is in the ftpgroup11:14
Mateo_to be able to connect via ftp11:14
Mateo_the problem is, i need to use auto-upgrade with wordpress, and i can't use it because the folder has to belong to a user in the www-data group11:15
Mateo_so my question, can a user belong to 2 group ?11:15
_Techie_Mateo_, yes11:24
_Techie_Mateo_, a user can belong to two or more groups, dont askme how to do it because i dont know and im heading to bed11:24

Mateo_guntbert: and can a folder belongs to 2 users ?11:33
techcomputernerdI am trying to set ubuntu server to share a hard drive between five computers, two are windows, two are mac and one is ubuntu (desktop) I am trying to set up a dynamic ip but i dont know what to enter for the netmask, network, broadcast and gateway in /etc/network/interfaces11:33
guntbertMateo_: a folder can belong to one user and to one group11:33
techcomputernerdi mean a static ip11:34
guntberttechcomputernerd: I guess that question will be better answered in ##networking11:35
Mateo_guntbert: ok so that's problematic, because i need this folder to belongs to www-data for the automatic upgrade, and to be able to ftp with another user (of course)11:35
techcomputernerdsorry, i thought i should post it in ubuntu-server because it is about ubuntu serrver :)11:35

extorIs it pretty straightforward to migrate Xen domains into KVM domains? I'm having terrible stability issues that remain unsolved on a centos-xen kernel box and am desperate to try anything. Every 12-24 hours my box just cripples itself with an "init reloading" message. Nothing in the logs...17:40
extorI'm at the point where I could almost just install ubuntu server just for the opportunity to have a newer Xen kernel running things17:41
extorA shot in the dark...but when you can't see anything then all you can do is shoot randomly in the dark17:41
wickedSAextor: pretty straightforward in my experience. a disk image is a disk image is a disk image...18:03
wickedSAextor: some extra steps if any of it lives on LVM, but othersise its easy18:04
extorwickedSA, so KVM also uses the disk image format?18:04
extorNon propreitary?18:04
extorwell an LVM still shows up as a block device once you "map" it right18:04

extorWhat version of Xen does ubuntu server include as default?21:16
mdlueckextor: Depends on the version of ubuntu server, check http://packages.ubuntu.com/21:23
extorlets say "stable" ubuntu21:24
qman__extor, if you mean LTS, there are two currently supported LTS versions, 8.04 and 10.0421:24
extorqman__, I was just concerned whether it would permit me to overcommit RAM21:25
qman__well, the above link, http://packages.ubuntu.com/ will allow you to find out what version of xen is available for each supported version of ubuntu21:26
mdlueckextor: Ubuntu is a bit different than Debian... there are multiple "stable" releases at the same time.21:26
extorlooks like 3.321:27
mdlueckextor: for a new server, right now I would suggest 10.04 LTS21:27

extorI'm becoming less of a fan of centOS by the day21:29

diana1068oh, sorry23:14
diana1068u've already showed me :)23:14
diana1068so basically it's just because of quotes??23:16
JanCdiana1068: double quotes inside double quotes doesn't work unless you escape them, but I doubt that it is required there, which is why I removed it23:19
diana1068its miracle my dear helper !23:20

diana1068its miracle my dear helper !23:21

diana1068but how could it work with 3 " before??23:25
diana1068im going to sleep now. thank u very much. KISSES23:27
