I posted a little while ago that I was having trouble installing pict-rs. (Using Linode VPS with Yunohost install of Lemmy). I kept trying to figure things out and now it has all shit the bed. Is there anyone here that would take a small $40 payment to just get it up and running fully for me? (Hoping the database can still be saved, but if it can’t not the worst.) #frustrated If $40 isn’t enough let me know what’s fair.
Support / questions about Lemmy.
$40 for setting up an email server? No way 😅
We know too little about what is going wrong with your setup. Did you try asking on the Yunohost forums or their chat?
What do you need a lemmy server for if I may ask?
Because you could, just like on reddit, for most intends of usage just make a couple communities on a reliable and (to you) trustworthy lemmy server. It’s not like they are at capacity or something like that atm. You’ll still be able to moderate them, make the rules etc.
I’m trying to align its use with a Mastodon instance of the same topic. I’m only allowing people on that instance who are part of the industry. I’m not interested in having anonymous people on the Mastodon instance or the Lemmy instance so that the local feeds will be civilized.
Cool. But other people will be able to participate on your lemmy server, right?
Since the fediverse is supposed to be decentralized, if you can host your own server and you feel like doing it, I would say you should do so.
What is the connection to my post here? They seem to lack the skill set to host their own server.
You asked why he needed a lemmy server for.
I don’t know why he does, I’m just saying that you don’t need a specific reason other than wanting to do so.
Having the skill set to host a server is not required, you can have it hosted if you’re willing to pay, which seems to be the case of OP here.
Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not saying it’s bad to use an existing instance.
I started with the yunohost install as well but decided to migrate to the officially supported docker install when I had issues with upgrades or had to wait for the ynh package to catch up. Although I don’t want to take your money and bear the responsability of handling the migration, I could give you some pointers.
-Woption with postgres commands so that you get prompted for the password
That’s from the top of my head but I had to try a few times before getting it right.
Thanks. I think that is probably what I will end up doing.
Maybe take a look at
