pmp6nlHello, where is the default PostgreSQL database location in Ubuntu 12.04.? Thanks!04:46
blkperlpmp6nl: what do you mean? you mean the datadir?04:51
blkperlrun `pg_lsclusters` and grep the config file for datadir04:52
pmp6nlblkperl, are the databases saved in a directory somewhere that I could download them manually or capture them via rsync?04:54
blkperlpmp6nl: you can you use pg_dump to dump them to a file, then rsync them05:00
pmp6nlblkperl, ok so they have to be dumped first.  They cant just be grabbed from whereever when the server runs rsycn every so often?05:00

lens|workhi guys - i have multiple virtual hosts in my ubuntu box. is it possible to access them in lan using different ip address for each virtual host, so that i don't have to mess around with my hosts file ?07:48
AtuMlens|work, use bridge so each vm will have its own ip.. are you using nat?08:01
AtuMhello. it looks like my ubuntu server stalls on boot.. it seems to load most services and then doesn't show the logon screen on tty108:04
AtuMI've tried to disable a few things on bootup but it doesn't help.. it might be a plymouth issue but I don't know how to troubleshoot this08:05
AtuMthe server also won't go to reboot.. I have to break it with sysrq08:08
lens|workAtuM, i'm gonna go with creating a vm for each virtual host08:14
AtuMlens|work, oh.. you're talking about apache virtual hosts?08:15
AtuMlens|work, if you're using apache, then you can have more ips in the box and have virtual hosts definitions set for each of those ips.. i believe it should be quite simple to set up08:26

[S^K]I have installed ubuntu server on an Amazon EC2 instance, when I try to create a file using "sudo cat > file.conf" I get permission denied. sudo is working for all other command though. How can I fix this?08:58
[S^K]I cannot use sudo su for security reasons08:59
ogra_[S^K], use tee09:02
ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo09:02

mlasalaAnybody knows why it doesn't appear? There is any other way to do this?09:53

spidernik84Hello everyone! I'm looking for a way to safely preseed an LVM encryption password but I can't seem to find a way to pass it hashed. I managed to pass it to the installer via the preseed line "partman-crypto partman-crypto/passphrase password <pass>" but it's in cleartext12:28
=== wickedpuppy2 is now known as wickedpuppy
xnoxspidernik84: it must be clear text. there is no secure way to preseed the partman-crypto password.12:42
xnoxspidernik84: i recommend changing passwords later or control key distribution in some other way.12:43
rbasakI'm not sure it makes any sense to do that. The installer needs an unhashed passphrase or at least the LUKS header and derived key (or whatever it's called) in order to install. And generally the installer is bootstrapped over TFTP and can be MITMed there. Bug 833994 may be relevant to you though.12:43
uvirtbotLaunchpad bug 833994 in debian-installer-utils "debian-installer does not support https when using with preseed files" [Medium,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/83399412:43
spidernik84thanks :(12:43
spidernik84So it's basically safer not to preseed them and type them12:44

GeorgeJIs 13.04 safe to install on my personal server? Or should I stick to 12.10/10.04?20:00

GeorgeJI have no problem with updating.20:01
=== matsubara-afk is now known as matsubara
GeorgeJI guess what I'm asking is: Is 13.04 stable enough for a personal server? Is there any reason not to sitck with it? Aer users reporting any major flaws?20:07
sarnoldGeorgeJ: the release notes have the 'major' flaws listed.. I've been running it on my laptop for a month or six weeks or so..20:08
GeorgeJI've been running it on my laptop aswell. There shouldn't really be stability differences between the desktop and server versions I'd guess, since it's the same base.20:09
kpettitanybody know of a Windows 7 client that can backup a windows computer to ssh?  I'm trying to find a simple easy to configure tool20:30
GeorgeJkpettit: Wat?20:31
kpettitTrying to find a simple windows backup program that I can say "Backup these list of folders to SSH/SFTP in this folder..." type of thing20:32
ScottKThat's "a bit" off topic.20:32
kpettitI've seen few tools to mount SSH as a windows drive letter and a few commercial tools.  But I was trying to find something more simple.20:32
kpettitI'm trying to backup to a ubuntu server.20:32
ScottKThat doesn't make Windows backup software on topic.20:32
kpettitMaybe there is a better backup server on Ubuntu that has a good Winodws client20:33
ScottKI can live with that question.20:33
* ScottK hasn't run Windows in almost a decade, so no idea though.20:33
kpettitI just hate all the closed sorce "cloud backup" crap.  Just want something to work with my ubuntu server.20:34
kpettitAlot of the ubuntu backup software I've tried has been very cumbersome.20:34
sarnoldkpettit: at least one user here recommends bacula regularly, and wikipedia claims windows clients: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacula20:34
* kpettit looking at bacula...20:34
kpettitI've tested it before, but it's been a few years.20:34
GeorgeJkpettit: You can use WinSCP to transver files over SSH to a SSH box.20:39
kpettitGeorgeJ, yes.  I'd love something like that, that was automatic.  Something like a rsync script is all I need.  Backup seems more server driven from what I'm reading20:40
sarnoldkpettit: I think I've used this before http://www.rsync.net/resources/howto/windows_rsync.html20:41
kpettitsarnold, sweet.  That looks promising.  Thanks20:44
GeorgeJkpettit: Also, cygwin can provide you with some unix tools, if that's what you're actually looking for.20:47
GeorgeJBut be carefull, I don't think permisions translate well between windows and linux.20:48
kpettitI've thought about that.  But it's a bit to big/combersome for simple backup20:48
GeorgeJWhat kind of backups do you want to do, anyway?20:49
GeorgeJA one-time backup? Or regular backups?20:49
kpettitregular backups.  Mainly trying to keep a copy of documents.  Outlook pst files, etc.20:49
kpettitI dont' want to mess with Windows OS backups.   Dealing with Windows is such a pain in the but.20:50
ssfdre38im having some problems with L2TPServer as im following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/L2TPServer and i get http://images.ssfdre38.net/images/FndZ6.png as my errors20:50
GeorgeJWell, I'm sure there's some kind of incremental backup system for Windows that can upload files via SFTP/FTP.20:50
kpettitGeorgeJ, I'm testing out that rsync windows backup client right now20:51
GeorgeJOr, you could just run Winblows within a VM, heh.20:51
kpettitI wish.20:51
kpettitI'm used to dealing with servers.  This desktop support stuff sucks20:52
RoyKkpettit: bacula works well, it's pita to setup, but once you know the basics it works well20:52
xet7Another option for backups is http://www.duplicati.com20:52
kpettitRoyK, can the user set what they want to backup, or is that all done on the server end?  That's what I was struggeling with looking at it20:52
GeorgeJkpettit: Well, TBH. I'm still using a Windows box atm, for my desktop. But once my SSD's arive, I'll be ditching Windows for ubuntu full-time.20:53
RoyKbacula is server-side only20:53
kpettitxet7, ohhh that looks nice20:53
GeorgeJThere's just no reason to keep using Windows. It's really slowing me down.20:53

zapotahtheres something that has been bugging me for a while now. What features (or something?) were so important that ubuntu went with kernel 3.5 instead of something else for 12.04.2?22:45
sarnoldzapotah: iirc, they wanted to use the same kernel for 12.04.2 as for 12.10, so that installing 12.04 LTS on UEFI machines would stand a chance..22:47
zapotahsarnold: I see. Were there some uefi related critical changes in 3.5? (Havent read every kernel release note...)22:48
