Running 2 instances on one VPS
I'm thinking of setting up another lemmy instance and was considering just hosting it on the same VPS as my current instance. I know lemmygrad is hosted on the same server as lemmy.ml. How difficult is this?

I believe the devs host their code on multiple repositories including Codeberg.

I’m glad to know it’s not just my instance.

I’m still having federation issues after the upgrade. At this point I wonder if it’s my firewall or something. I watch the lemmy logs when upvoting for example and my server doesn’t even see the request come in.

Rich capitalists with morals? Pssh…

This is what it looks like when you use 100% of your brain.

I drink milk like it’s water and I’m 31 lol.

I second this. If someone/something is banned and removed from an instance it shouldn’t still be visible on a linked instance. If this isn’t already a pending feature request I’ll happily make one for it.

I was camping in the Pennsylvania woods and had to go so I dug a shallow hole and did my business.

Imagine not getting the vaccine and dying of covid because the computer tricked you.

Thanks for your hard work!

I can’t seem to add my instance to the app for some reason. I put in midwest.social and it says it can’t find the instance. It’s definitely up and running.

Underwater structures that are generally made of metal. Buoys, oil rigs in the ocean, reactor pools. I shudder thinking about swimming near anything like that.

The main thing I want to do is free up space on my phone by having the pictures/videos backed up to a server, but also be viewable at any time.

Which image hosting software do you recommend?
I've been researching open source image/video hosting software because I sure as hell don't want to use Google Photos. I'm leaning toward PhotoPrism, but I thought I'd get your opinions first.

Meetup.com worked for me this past year. I wish there was a FOSS alternative to it though.

I already blocked wolfballs on mine.

Need help with Nginx SSL setup
Hello, I am setting up a HTTPS server for the first time and I am using Nginx. I had Certbot get a cert for me and it edited the config file. Now my site (midwest.social) times out. I just wanted to test it by opening the default Nginx web page. Here is my sites-available config file: `server { # SSL configuration # # listen 443 ssl default_server; # listen [::]:443 ssl default_server; # # Note: You should disable gzip for SSL traffic. # See: https://bugs.debian.org/773332 # # Read up on ssl_ciphers to ensure a secure configuration. # See: https://bugs.debian.org/765782 # # Self signed certs generated by the ssl-cert package # Don't use them in a production server! # # include snippets/snakeoil.conf; root /var/www/html; # Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html; server_name midwest.social; # managed by Certbot location / { # First attempt to serve request as file, then # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404. try_files $uri $uri/ =404; } # deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root # concurs with nginx's one # location ~ /\.ht { deny all; } listen [::]:443 ssl ipv6only=on; # managed by Certbot listen 443 ssl; # managed by Certbot ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/midwest.social/fullchain.pem; # managed by Certbot ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/midwest.social/privkey.pem; # managed by Certbot include /etc/letsencrypt/options-ssl-nginx.conf; # managed by Certbot ssl_dhparam /etc/letsencrypt/ssl-dhparams.pem; # managed by Certbot }`

A midwest USA oriented lemmy instance
So I bought a domain name the other day. I'm thinking of starting a lemmy instance that is oriented around those of us who happen to live in the midwest of the US. I'd have a similar CoC as this instance and would like to federate with it. Thoughts?

Buying a domain name
Hello everyone, I'm considering starting a Lemmy instance and am looking at domain names. Any tips on where to buy? I was told to avoid GoDaddy and I'd rather not give Google my money.

Lemmy wikipedia page
Tonight I tried to create a Wikipedia page for Lemmy to try and raise awareness, but it was quickly rejected for the following reason: > This submission's references do not show that the subject qualifies for a Wikipedia article—that is, they do not show significant coverage (not just passing mentions) about the subject in published, reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject. Before any resubmission, additional references meeting these criteria should be added (see technical help and learn about mistakes to avoid when addressing this issue). If no additional references exist, the subject is not suitable for Wikipedia. I guess we'll have to start getting journalists to write about it? ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/gLaF1CYmTX.jpg)

Best Rust concepts for contributing to Lemmy?
I'm currently working my way through the Rust book provided on rust-lang.org so that I can one day contribute to this project. Are there any sections I should specifically focus on? Skip?

Latest release of Alacritty not installed
I'm running Debian 10 and I saw that there was a new release of Alacritty, so I checked the version I was running which was 0.4.2 and went to apt update and it said everything was up to date? Am I somehow running a super stable Debian version?
