@tanja Likes from here seem to work. Do comments work?

@wago I sent Mike a log file he requested. He's gonna try and figure this mess out.

@wago This is getting better and better. I can't see this post anywhere other than Mastodon. Did you write a reply or a new post?

Those were replies to the original thread from my Zap account. I don't know why you're seeing those separately.

I'm starting to wonder if this problem is fixable. There's such a mess by now...

@keyoxide Major league facepalm... 🤦‍♀️

uMatrix was blocking the external domains. I did try from a private Firefox window, where the addon is disabled, but I guess something else still must have been at work in the background.

Thanks for taking the time, though.

I'll try to make amends by writing out a self-hosting tutorial for Apache (and possibly, with a little help from my Hubzilla contact who helped me initially, for Nginx).

@keyoxide Also, thanks for getting back to me on this.

@keyoxide PHP version is 7.4. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the rewrite. I don't actually know my way around mod_rewrite that well. Somebody gave me a hint for Nginx that worked for him, and the translation I found for Apache was this:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
This was me and my typical search-fu admin style... 😳

@keyoxide ...
AH01071: Got error 'PHP message: PHP Notice: Undefined variable: auto_input in /srv/htdocs/keyoxide.tanjapetri.de/views/proofs.php on line 16PHP message: PHP Notice: Undefined variable: wkd_input in /srv/htdocs/keyoxide.tanjapetri.de/views/proofs.php on line 19PHP message: PHP Notice: Undefined variable: hkp_input in /srv/htdocs/keyoxide.tanjapetri.de/views/proofs.php on line 22', referer: keyoxide.tanjapetri.de/guides/

@keyoxide I can't verify anything. When I put my e-mail address in on the /proofs page, I get "TypeError: NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource." The Apache log file reads....

I'm trying to install on my own server (running Apache2), but I'm having trouble getting URL rewrites to work. Is there a sample .htacces available somewhere?

Organizing my hard disk and found some pictures I used for greeting cards I had for sale in my studio in Celle (many moons ago.) Good opportunity to test the picture upload on Mastodon.

Wofür ich mich ebenfalls noch nicht so richtig entscheiden kann, ist, ob ich das Ding hier auf Deutsch oder Englisch schalten möchte. Eigentlich schreibe ich ja lieber auf Englisch, aber mein Hubzilla-Kanal ist auch auf Deutsch geführt, und da meine Haupt-Social-Media-Präsenz (die ich hier nicht anführe) auf Englisch ist, bleibe ich hier vielleicht mal auf Deutsch 😉

So. I managed to set this instance up on my VPS, but I haven't quite decided what to do with it; although it's probably going to be related. I already have a Hubzilla instance up for a personal website, but for photo sharing, I'm still looking. I tried Pixelfed, but for a single user instance, I wasn't overly happy with the software. I've had trouble connecting to other PF users, and discovery is also not yet really working. So now I'm trying Mastodon, see how this works for me.
