i’ve been running this instance since Jan/Feb 2022. @firstname.lastname@example.org ran it before me for about 2 years I believe?
so far, it doesn’t take up much of my time. i get very few reports to deal with, and upgrading/maintenance is quick and easy.
in the past few days, it’s been mostly going through new user applications, but that’s quick and easy too.
if we continue to grow, i will probably be looking for some help with administering this instance, as i’m guessing it will become too much for one person to handle.
yes, i’m currently using lunanode. i’ve used them in the past, and like their feature set and their pricing seems fair.
FYI, this is an old post, before I took over hosting lemmy.ca.
it is now currently hosted on a Canadian VPS.
weird, for some reason I wasn’t subscribed to this community. Sorry about that! On to your question:
https://email@example.com will work now, but only because you have to first search for it, either using the url for the instance it’s on (https://beehaw.org/c/support) or the following format (!firstname.lastname@example.org).
I believe that’s just how the federation works on lemmy, if the no one has searched and/or subscribed to the remote community, you will get the 404 error code.
hope that makes sense!
edit: also, when searching for it, give it a good 5-10 seconds for the result to show up. i believe it needs to query the server and takes a bit sometimes.
if you have the url for the community (usually
https://<instance>/c/<community>, for example:
https://beehaw.org/c/music), click on the top-right menu bar, then the magnifying glass. enter/paste the community url into the search field, click on search. it should show up as one of the results (and sometimes takes a try or two for some reason?).
the result you want will look something like this:
also, if you know the url, you can also just figure out the url for the local instance:
https://lemmy.ca/c/<community>@<instance>, for example:
hope that makes sense!
i think jerboa is the only actively developed one currently. it’s developed by one of the main lemmy developers as well.
i currently just use a web browser, to access on mobile & desktop, it works well enough for me.
there’s also this which aggregates a bunch of instances:
this might help too: https://browse.feddit.de/
also, this might help too: https://browse.feddit.de/
I just ran a quick test. I found the fashion community from lemmy.ml (by searching directly on their site), and subscribed to it. now when you search here for
fashion it shows up. so you might be better off searching some of the bigger instances directly, then subscribing to them from here.
you can also just browse the communities on lemmy.ca, and search for them on .ml to subscribe to them. or you can just create another account too.
partial upgrades aren’t supported I believe, but i believe if you really wanted you could add the following line to your
IgnorePkg = linux
myself, I just depending on the server i’m upgrading, i just don’t update as frequently and reboot the machine if needed (i don’t think there’s any getting around that).
i think the lemmy dev’s have said that lemmy.ml (which has many more active users) runs on a very low resource machine as well, plus they have a bunch of other stuff running on the same machine too, i can’t remember the exact specs however.
Hello & welcome!
I’m currently running this on a small VPS at linode, but i’ve been thinking about switching to a more canadian-based vps that i’ve used in the past.
lemmy the software has very low system requirements, so it’s currently running on a 1 CPU 2 GB RAM vm.
edit: whoops meant to say “low”, not “slow”!
there’s also rustic, which is currently in beta i believe, but it’s basically the rust equivalent of restic.
Hello! I agree that this instance does seem a little quiet lately. There was a small uptick in registration when the whole reddit api thing was announced, but not a whole lot of new content.
As for me, my son has started his baseball season, so we’ve been busy with that, and his birthday is also coming up so that’s kept us busy with planning and organizing as well.
Definitely enjoying the warmer weather!
A public explanation of where to find this ‘start deliver’-button would be super if possible. I might have to notify a few for the my larger community. 😉
i’m not 100% sure sorry, i’m pretty sure it’s just something a mastodon admin has access to.
edit: tried to open a comment or account from various instances I’m on: Mastodon: brands.town, die-partei.social
Friendica: friendica.xyz, loma.ml
None worked. Maybe I’ll rather give up on this.
i’m not sure what you mean by this? do you mean you tried to follow your lemmy.ca account from those instances and none worked?
here’s a link to the article: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/prince-albert-police-sirt-umpherville-1.6823509
i’m not 100% sure what you mean, but I think if you post a URL to an image hosted outside, it will create a thumbnail of it which is stored locally to the instance. i don’t believe it will store the full sized image?
