Update Mastodon to 3.5.3
Add language dropdown to compose form in web UI (Gargron, ykzts)
Add warning for limited accounts in web UI (Gargron)
Add limited attribute to accounts in REST API (Gargron)
@robi Great idea. If my Mastodon keeps working fine without these, that would be so good. I've currently had to exclude it from my regular backups because of its size, and because sometimes the backup process would choke on some file and fail. I'll give that a go and report back.
Our instance is only 3 days old. Since i did not set the flag it defaulted to 7 days.
The system did everything right. There were no files as old or older than 7 days. Accordingly it did not delete anything. Computer smart.
@girish Great, I'll give it a try. Indeed, I need something like this because the size of my main Mastodon installation on Cloudron is already over 28GB! I've had to turn off Auto-Backup for it since it takes so long.
@jdaviescoates I have indeed. I believe that something must have happened to my block storage, as I since noticed that it was no longer mounted at all. Unfortunately I think the images are simply not there at all.
In terms of things I had personally shared, that is just a lost cause now I believe. No major harm done there. But regarding avatars and images from remote posts, is there some way that I can force Mastodon to re-download these rather than trying to pull from a local source that doesn't actually exist?
Ah, no, that point I missed. Am trying to fix it now, but the yaml indicated in the doc doesn't exist. So, I've created it and get hit with a syntax error, even though it's a copy of the contents specified.
Anyway, I'll keep investigating, but I think you can mark this as resolved now. Thank you!
@girish Thank you, that did the trick! Not entirely sure how and why my install looked the way it did. I think I installed it first thing once it showed up in the app store, but back then it was still marked as unstable. Anyway, it's all good now, thank you!
Do I need an external server, or should I install an elasticsearch app on Cloudron, or can I install it directly from the Ubuntu via code.
You will need an external server because we don't support installing additional packages on the server since it might break updates. At some point we do plan to integrate ElasticSearch into Cloudron. I think some other apps like nextcloud require this as well. For the moment, just install it on a ubuntu or equivalent outside Cloudron.
@girish This is part of my problem I posted about yesterday (in fact mastodon.host doesn't even work via HTTP anymore), but also, note the Sidkiq errors I mentioned that might be somewhat related to relays in general.
