noob server security stuff question
Uh, okay, I guess something has been trying really hard for a few days to get into my server.
Sooo the internet said I use "last" to see last successful logins. That only shows one, which is me, yay. But also, it says "wtmp begins [time I logged in]". there is a wtmp.1, but it is empty. Is this normal "you didn't log in recently and nobody else did, either" looks, or is it what it looks like when someone removed something from there? (I feel silly asking, but I'm nervous)
@maunzikation can I give you some advice for using mastodon maintenance tasks like removing remote media?
@maunzikation it's always a good idea to run things inside tmux, it essentially allows you to keep ssh sessions active even when you disconnect from your server
@maunzikation it also allows you to have multiple virtual sessions open so you can run stuff that takes a while in a tmux "window" while doing other stuff in another window
@tom aah, thank you! i used that once, because the mastodon install guide recommended it, and then all the other times i felt like "uuuh i'd have to look that up again" so i didn't, but it'd make so much sense. *looks it up*
