1. That said, I keep meaning to launch a Pleroma instance for myself.... Just keep having problems with nginx.

    1. @scribus The problem is, DigitalOcean has a turnkey Mastodon server, but I hear shady things about their behind-the-scenes administrative culture and Pleroma has a wider selection of interoperability.

    2. @scribus What issue are you having with nginx?

      1. @thismightbeauser Only morons seem to have written any documentation for it

      2. @thismightbeauser Serious answer: I follow, to a T, the official "install Pleroma" scripts. Then, all I get is a goddamned "Welcome to the world's dumbest web server!" splash screen. Nobody has an answer posted for getting past this idiocy. The internet is useless thanks to google and SEO now meaning that, instead of an answer to my question, I get ads and spammers.

      3. @thismightbeauser A buddy may have already directed me to the solution; I've just been too enraged to enact it.

        1. @scribus That's good. If you end up needing more help maybe you could Pastebin your config somewhere. Nginx can be particularly difficult to set up and even I have trouble configuring it without specific examples. The syntax it uses is particularly asinine. It seems like it's trying to imitate INI style configs, but then enforces the requirements of semicolons and braces. Omitting them often produces bizarre results instead of breaking completely.

    3. @scribus Hit up or or or or
      Tell them I sent you and they'll help you with it, they're all either developers or admins of several instances.

      1. @nerthos Also the dev team is releasing 2.0 stable next weekend so you might want to wait for that.
