I'm experimenting with doing occasional long-form blog posts about how to make your own online services.
I've done an initial post about how to make your own Mastodon server using managed hosting providers. If you have time, it would be great to hear feedback about it.
You can read it at:
I quite like the visual stuff you can do on Wordpress.
Might add the activitypub plugin if I do more blog posts though?
Spacebear do WriteFreely now too:
Sounds like a good idea!
Getting practical advice down on paper would be a good resource for others using those platforms.
Looks good but feels a bit light on technical walkthrough. I suggest you pick a host as the recommended provider and have a step by step tutorial on installing Mastodon on that one.
I agree, it's not useful to people doing the installation process themselves.
However, I hope it is useful for people using managed hosting services (where the hosting company does all the installation).
@homegrown well done. Clear and concise, even I think I might be able to do this is I ever need to, following this guide.
Thank you for the feedback!
And that is so good to hear, it's exactly what I was aiming for!
@homegrown Hosting my iwn Nextcloud server I was trying to set up an additional Matrix server on a different hardware. I could not solve the issue of having two servers behind one external IP. Even with a static IPv4 address. IMHO this is some kind of essential to understand those concepts to host several servers behind one IP.
I would love to learn some mire about how to... . And I am sure that others have the same issue, thus preventing them from implementation.
Sorry, I'm not sure I can help :/
I think that's more a question for system administrators?
I'm trying to help people using managed hosting services.
