Looks like my home server is not resilient to a power cycle.
@emacsen I have done zero investigation. It might be the dynamic DNS script I have running failing again.
@groovestomp That could mean a lot of things! :-)
You ran a service, but forgot to put it in sysctrl/init?
fs is munched?
Bios wasn't set to restart?
@gemlog The Pine64 seems fine and I can connect via SSH; but I'm sorting out dns nameserver issues.
It seems like dns name resolution only works when I set my nameserver to 188.8.131.52. I tried setting google and opendns nameservers and they fail to resolve... 🤔
@gemlog With 184.108.40.206 each http request seems to take a *long* time. Several seconds. I'm not sure if this is a result of the nameserver or what.
I used to mess with dnscrypt; but AFAICT I don't have that configured on here.
@gemlog OK, so it was a broken pihole install. I forgot I had tried installing it some time ago, and there was something I couldn't sort out in the config. I had disabled it, but upon reboot it just started back up again.
I've removed it entirely until I can dedicate some time to figuring it out.
Also my ddclient script didn't work as expected. 😆 I apparently had to manually restart the unit??
Now I *think* I just need to wait for my dns ttl to expire for my website to be available again. 🤔
@groovestomp It's nice to know others pull the same stupid shit :-)
Mind you, I never did this kind of thing with real servers. Just my own toy servers that I have these days.
Mind you, one time (back in rhel4 days!) I remember I forgot to save my fw rules and got a real surprise after a restart when my logging monitor was spinning red like an insane fruit machine in vegas! :-)
To be fair, that box had an uptime in excess of 1100 days...
@groovestomp I hear you bud :-)
A few months ago I destroyed an install like 5-6 times in one day messing around on a vps in germany. I've never done that for real. Never.
About 10 years ago I did force some unfortunate retro 'updates' on my own box and needed to re-install, but it was a known risk and kind of on purpose. Sorta.
OK, dumb choice one morning :-)
@groovestomp Yeah - too much work putting everything back together - even with good backups and notes.
So, just chilling or planning?
Or just playing :-)
@gemlog Well... I did something stupid. I was replacing a power outlet and I didn't shut off the breaker. 😮 After it exploded, I shut off ALL the breakers. 🙃
