Well, so much for the busy couple of days off I had planned - about the only useful thing I've done is start work on a GNUsoc theme (copied neo-quitter, renamed it, changed the background colour value to match the site it goes with...), and set up a Hubzilla account - no photo editing, no writing - just too tired, hot, and sweaty to function.
Almost looking forward to going back to work tomorrow - I work on frozen food in a supermarket, -20C FTW!
Well, this is interesting - making progress with my #hubzilla install - #diaspora can see the accounts, but not interact with them, #mastodon and #gnusocial can see and interact with accounts, but never receive anything back, and Hubzilla can only see people on other networks who are contacts, but can't interact with them.
Oh, except people on Masto, which throws up a random 303 error...
Just had to nuke the test #hubzilla installation - something was badly wrong, but I couldn't figure out what.
It was sending emails, and #gnusocial could see/follow/comment the various channels/accounts I set up, but nothing else could - #diaspora, #mastodon, #pleroma, even other Hubzillas!
Hell, the different channels couldn't even see each other, let alone communicate!
Going to try again when I get home from work...
Oh dear - just installed a test Hubzilla instance - it appears to be working, but I can't seem to connect to it from here...
Well, that was fun - reading the installation notes for Hubzilla, and they keep going on about how you can install it on just about any server that can run WordPress - it's just a pity that there are 2 PHP extensions that are essential for Hubzilla, none of which I can modify through php.ini on my shared hosting.
Just put in a support ticket, but it is Friday night, they are unlikely to do anything non-systems-critical until Monday, by which time I will have forgotten about then whole thing!
CHMOD help, please?
installed GNUsoc on a subdomain on my site, instructions say to set up permissions on certain directories with "chmod g+w" - unfortunately, I don't have SSH access, and Filezilla only accepts octals - so would the equivalent be setting perms to 020?
Or am I reading this entirely wrong?
#chmod #help #gnusoc
We need a Mozilla for the fediverse.
A non-profit dedicated to incubating, organizing and maintaining ActivityPub projects like pixelfed and others.
I would transfer to such an organization!
Doing some research for this years CampNaNoWriMo, and I discover that the mythical Mexican creature, El Chupacabra, doesn't date back anywhere near as far back as I thought - indeed, the first sightings date back to 1995, and it's name (meaning Goat Sucker)came from a joke about the myth by a Mexican comedian!
And then you get to the bus stop and find out they don't start for another half hour on Sundays...
Back home for snuggles with my youngest it is, then! :D
(or was - back at the bus stop now!)
Does anyone kniow of a simple guide to creating an Infobox in MediaWiki?
All the docs I've read are thoroughly confusing...
That was a strange one - installed Wine using Lubuntu's package manager, but it failed to install a load of dependencies, so trying to install anything via Wine chucked up a load of errors before failing.
Finally managed to install Scrivener, but now if I launch it via command line, it opens but throws up an error about not being able to find wine-gecko.
No mention of this in the package manager - this is doing my head in! :D
(I love it, really!)
And so it begins - I've already upgraded the hosting for 2 of my sites, and cancelled the hosting account they were originally on, now I just have to transfer the remaining 4 sites to the new host and cancel that account before 16th July so I don't get charged a small fortune for that hosting.
I'll be saving myself a fair bit by consolidating my hosting, down from around £18 to just over £10, while getting a performance boost!
Still won't be enough to run Masto, but hey ho!
I was born - I haven't died yet.
Anything else is a bonus.
