Only the web interface is working for me with this @mastohost instance - very odd, and annoying 😅

mastohost,
@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@dave How so? Everything is working fine on my end. There is no reason why you can't use an app, if that is what you are talking about.

mastohost,
@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@dave Are you using a VPN or some other security system on iOS? Can you access the web interface via browser in Safari?

mastohost,
@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@dave Sorry but can't think of a reason.

Just tried the login flow on the official Mastodon app, indicating social.lightbeamapps.com and it worked fine (obviously didn't have an account but everything worked as expected).

So, I suspect is something specific on your end.

@joshua The only threat detection on Masto.host is DDoS protection and it has not been triggered in a few weeks. So, there is no traffic filtering active (IP blocking, etc) in a while.

@dave But it´s all good now?

@joshua

@dave Yep, it sounds like it. But do let me know if the issue comes back and you can't understand what's causing it.

@mastohost Hi - for the past two days I’ve had issues posting if there’s an image attached. Is it just me?

mastohost,
@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@pixel Hello,

Couple of questions:
Is the random or is it constant?
Is that via the browser or an app?

mastohost,
@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@pixel But I had no other reports regarding media uploads.

It could be you or the format of the images or your server. But don't think it's a problem with my infrastructure, that has been stable.

mastohost,
@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@pixel Well, if Sidekiq had a long queue jobs to process on your server, that could explain it.

Meaning, if you were processing more federation and other jobs than what your hosting plan could handle immediately and a queue was formed.

You can check the Sidekiq activity inside Mastodon via the browser (Administration->Sidekiq). If the number under Enqueued is above zero, then there is a queue.

But let me know if the issue comes back and I can look into that for you.

So, I’m curious: there’s a growing number of hosting platforms specifically for the #Fediverse. For those involved in this, who are comfortable with answering: is there a particular set of tools you use for managing, monitoring, and spinning up instances?

Are those tools open source?

I’m mainly wondering about whether there’s some kind of open platform / dashboard / infra tools that could serve a particular need for hosting / managing / provisioning Fedi servers, and whether the existing hosts in the space would benefit from a shared project of some sort.

mastohost,
@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@deadsuperhero I kind of feel in a similar way as @stux, meaning I prefer to have control over what I am running and to understand anything going wrong.

Now if an amazing tool (or set of tools) existed, then sure I would probably use it. But for example, on an infrastructure like mine https://masto.host/infrastructure/ I doubt that a tool could support it without any custom changes.

Honestly think there are other tools the Fediverse needs more than this. The number of new installs is not that high.

Hi @mastohost, I came across @liaizon which is IMO hosted by you. More precisely the social. subdomain is. How dow you resolve #webfinger #rfc7033 adresses to a host not mentioned in the address?

Asking because I implement @demo and https://seppo.social/demo/apchk.cgi

mastohost,
@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@mro Hello, not sure I understand your question are you asking about https://docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/config/#web_domain webfinger configuration?

@liaizon @demo

mastohost,
@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@mro @liaizon they are using the old /.well-known/host-meta that Mastodon used to recommend in the past, you can see here an old copy https://github.com/felx/mastodon-documentation/blob/master/Running-Mastodon/Serving_a_different_domain.md

In that specific case they are using a static XML, see last example on my instructions https://masto.host/mastodon-usernames-different-from-the-domain-used-for-installation/

mastohost,
@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@liaizon The recommended way will not work on GitHub. At least AFAIK they don't offer redirects like it's recommended: https://masto.host/mastodon-usernames-different-from-the-domain-used-for-installation/

Opps ... Sorry @mastohost ... I have dropped it to 1 day ... Hugz

@Melissabeartrix Ops :) but no problem on my end.

Hope that helps, but there are things that 'Media cache retention period' does not clean (namely avatars/headers).

As your account has a significant number of followers/following/activity you will probably end up needing a plan upgrade.

@mastohost@mastodon.social avatar

@Melissabeartrix It's all good. Thanks

I have done another round of following back and hit "too many requests again ... Pout ... I won't forget any of you all ... Hugz

I wonder if there is a switch or setting on my instance that can get flicked on or off ... @mastohost ... Thanks you ... I'm loving your hosting ... Great work

@Melissabeartrix Hello, glad you are enjoying your server :)

Rate limits are per user/IP. Also, they are hardcoded by Mastodon. There are no extra rate limits implemented by Masto.host. So, they are only triggered by the actions of the user/IP, things like mass deletions, scrolling lots of pages very fast, etc.

Please read https://masto.host/help/rate-limit-error/ for details.

Pessoal, em algumas horas começa nosso processo de migração de servidores. Queria agradecer ao @mastohost pelos quatro anos aguentando uma ursa ignorante e apoiando nosso pequeno cantinho de resistência. Vou continuar a mandar eventualmente algumas perguntas estúpidas para ele só para Hugo não entrar em abstinência de gente burra com tecnologia depois de tanto tento de convívio comigo. :amor:

A vocês, eu e @cadusilva pedimos paciência. :paciencia:

@Ursalzona Obrigado e prazer em conseguir ajudar :)

There is currently a problem with the CDN causing media files failing to load.

This is already being investigated by Bunny the CDN provider: https://status.bunny.net/incidents/x5x9p96m87rl

Really sorry for the inconvenience.

@brian yep, a fix is already being applied, hopefully it will be solved soon. Thanks
