[00:09:50] <kuro> Hello
[00:21:37] <kuro> Anyone have any experiance installing rehash on Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS on AWS?
[00:25:51] -!- cortex has quit [Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…]
[00:31:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> kuro, we're running most of our servers on 16.04, yeah. NCommander's the only one who's actually done a from scratch install though.
[00:33:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> there's almost certainly flaws in the db creation bits but i think the rest should be doable.
[00:40:13] <kuro> Ah, thanks TheMightyBuzzard. Been trying to do installs from scratch and run into problems around the install of perl and mod_perl. Was able to advance a bit by switching the perl version to 5.26 and not using the mod_perl mirror in the Make file. But now it seems to be having problems with the Make trying to mkdir the stamp folder over and over until it totally errors out. Ahh, ok. Might be my lack of
[00:40:19] <kuro> experiance making rather than using a package manager.
[00:41:05] <kuro> So I'm guessing best way to do a new install is installing slashcode then upgrading to rehash?
[00:41:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, we had someone monkeying with the stamp bits to fix another bug. it's entirely possible there's a bug in it now.
[00:41:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> should be able to install right from rehash
[00:41:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> it should in fact be closer to correct.
[00:42:45] <kuro> Ah, gotcha. Started with trying to install since this weekend so might be why I'm hitting these errors.
[00:43:17] <kuro> Whew, thats good to hear. Think I'd pull the little thats left of my hair attepting to install from Slashcode lol
[00:44:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh heck yeah. slashcode had plenty of bugs left and only ran on mod_perl1 and apache 1.x
[00:44:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> i've been meaning to do a fresh install in a vm soon for dev purposes, sounds like a good excuse to do that this week.
[00:45:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> if you're not in a hurry i should be able to have it install-ready by the weekend.
[00:45:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> wait, tomorrow's wednesday? maybe by monday then.
[00:46:04] <kuro> Oh I can imagine, from what Ive read about the code development it was hacked together and not having been updated for almost 10 years dont think it'd be smart to use the code on a public facing site
[00:46:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah. it ran well enough but what it ran on was just asking to be hacked.
[00:47:08] -!- cortex [cortex!~cortex@k2241jepm9doh5wy9.cg.shawcable.net] has joined #dev
[00:47:09] <kuro> Not at all, looking to run it on a personal project site. was thinking wordpress (which I promarily use), looked into drupal, but seems like rehash does what I was looking for
[00:47:39] <kuro> I'm in no rush, like I said looking to use this for a side project.
[00:48:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> ahh, if you're not dead set on installing it yourself you could even steal the dev vm when i get it ready and just change a whole bunch of config settings.
[00:49:11] <TheMightyBuzzard> really probably easier to set them during setup though.
[00:52:04] <kuro> That would be great. Hate to ask but would you happen to know how to get it onto AWS? I'm not coloing on my own box or anything so figuring something along the lines of transfering the environment folders, changing username passwords, then pointing to MySQL on RDS.
[00:52:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> honestly, it shouldn't matter at all what distro you run it on except for init scripts. everything's pretty much self-contained in the install directory.
[00:52:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> not off hand. you're not able to pull it in via git?
[00:53:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh you meant the vm. roger.
[00:53:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, never tried it on aws.
[00:53:26] <kuro> I was getting the files off git with a wget
[00:53:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> ouch. much quicker to actually use git i'd think. easier updates as well.
[00:54:03] <kuro> no wait. this last time I cloned the rehash code onto the AWS box
[00:54:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> not that we've ever had a single security update.
[00:54:40] <kuro> Yeah, I figured with smaller install base, less people trying to break the code looking for attack vectors
[00:54:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> one thing i'll say about slashcode... they did security well.
[00:55:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah man, this stuff ran on slashdot in its heyday. it got PLENTY of free penetration testing.
[00:55:55] <kuro> ^ True
[00:56:46] <kuro> But if it helps the community I'm more than happy to offer any tidbits to help get this running on AWS
[00:57:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> absolutely. just having someone that's not intimately familiar with the nuts and bolts install it will help a bunch.
[00:58:30] <kuro> Yeah, im no AWS or Linux expert but I enjoy trial and erroring things to get them working lol
[00:59:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> anyway, it's getting close to my bedtime. i'm around most every day but not necessarily every minute.
[01:00:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> and i turn into a pumpkin around 8pm central.
[01:00:51] <kuro> Cool cool, thanks for the info and help. Have a good night. You might want to have a doc check that out if you're turning to a pumpkin haha
[01:01:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'll start looking into the install procedure tomorrow and update things as i go.
[01:02:28] <kuro> Awesome. Appreciate the help and you looking into it
