    [1.13.1]

    Update Mastodon to 4.2.8 This update changes registrations to be closed by default. Full changelog Add hourly task to automatically require approval for new registrations in the absence of moderators (ClearlyClaire, ClearlyClaire) In order to prevent future abandoned Mastodon servers from being used for spam, harassment and other malicious activity, Mastodon will now automatically switch new user registrations to require moderator approval whenever they are left open and no activity (including non-moderation actions from apps) from any logged-in user with permission to access moderation reports has been detected in a full week. When this happens, users with the permission to change server settings will receive an email notification. This feature is disabled when EMAIL_DOMAIN_ALLOWLIST is used, and can also be disabled with DISABLE_AUTOMATIC_SWITCHING_TO_APPROVED_REGISTRATIONS=true. Change registrations to be closed by default on new installations (ClearlyClaire) If you are running a server and never changed your registrations mode from the default, updating will automatically close your registrations. Simply re-enable them through the administration interface or using tootctl settings registrations open if you want to enable them again. Fix processing of remote ActivityPub actors making use of Link objects as Image url (ClearlyClaire) Fix link verifications when page size exceeds 1MB (ClearlyClaire)

    Oh, OK. I thought I could tweak the performance a bit with this since it's mentioned in some "Mastodon scaling" documents I have found. And Sidekiq shows that Redis is using 100% of the allocated memory.

    I was logged in to my dashboard as jdaviescoates and into Mastodon as uniteddiversity and what I wanted to do was to login to Mastodon as josef

    @girish said in Can't switch user because of OIDC issue:

    @jdaviescoates you are probably logged into the dashboard as well.

    I was, but as a different user...

    But, actually, it seemed I was somehow logged in as both.

    So, I just logged out of my dashboard as jdaviescoates but I was immediately still logged in, but as uniteddiversity

    I'm not sure how that happened/ was possible - because how did I manage to login as jdaviescoates in addition to uniteddiversity?

    I mean, surely I would've had to logout as uniteddiversity in order to be able to login again as jdaviescoates - but I guess, not, somehow šŸ¤·

    @girish said in Can't switch user because of OIDC issue:

    We are going to look into OIDC logout support from next release.

    Sounds like that is a pretty important thing to support, thanks! šŸ™

    No, I mean just reinstall your Mastodon and start over with your account. As long as the account you want to have named correctly was only ever created on your own instance, reinstalling that instance should reset that username. If you move it, you won't be able to change it (I think).

    @rmdes said in Custom Cloudron image for ElasticSearch:

    I'd certainly contribute with funding, even more if the app can then be used by other cloudron apps (if possible)

    Nextcloud being such a candidate

    The new thread is for funding packaging and support https://forum.cloudron.io/topic/11178/custom-cloudron-image-for-elasticsearch

    Iā€™m no good with Docker, but what I can do is pool funds and rally people to get it done.

    @nebulon Thank you for your reply. In the instructions it says that first you have to run the command

    cd /home/mastodon/live aws s3 sync --acl public-read public/system/ s3://instance-media --endpoint=https://s3.fr-par.scw.cloud

    To synchronize local data, cache Mastodon media to the S3 bucket.
    I guess that would have to be a different command here on Cloudron.
    Now my images load, but the local avatars, server image have disappeared from the instance and the remote images and avatars are not loading. Is it possible that the remote images will load gradually, I don't know.
    I've been really struggling with this for a few days now and the result is still not good. šŸ˜ž

    @ehson_mokhtary you may also find some clues e.g. in these posts:

    https://github.com/cybrespace/cybrespace-meta/blob/master/s3.md

    (see e.g. this section https://github.com/cybrespace/cybrespace-meta/blob/master/s3.md#follow-up although I've no idea how you'd do that on Cloudron)

    Found a solution!

    Went into my 4.1.9 app page in Cloudron, clicked Terminal, used the Postgres button to get into DB mode, and typed this in:

    CREATE UNIQUE INDEX index_statuses_tags_on_tag_id_and_status_id ON public.statuses_tags USING btree (tag_id, status_id);

    Managed to upgrade seamlessly to 4.2.0 after that.
