@msbt First, thank you for this migration guide, it's exactly what I need.
I also had to re-verify the devices to read the encrypted history
What do you think this is due to?
@yusf that is a good question, I moved the app to a different subdomain to test around, but that's probably not it. I'm guessing it is because of new keys and everything, haven't tried to re-use any of the existing ones.
Oh yea, atm there is no default channel, you might want to remove the comment on those lines as well to get new users in there automatically
@stantropics already askes this question in the closed matrix thread:
First of all, thanks to everyone who has been working on the matrix app. I'm very happy to be able to run it on cloudron!
Making a user an administrator.
Referring to the documentation (https://github.com/matrix-org/synapse/wiki) one command needs to be executed to make a user an admin - it manipulates the data in the postgresdb:
UPDATE users SET admin = 1 WHERE name = '@foo:bar.com'
What is the recommended way to perform this on Cloudron?
Thanks a lot in advance.
Stay healthy everyone!
Is there any recommended way to set a user as an admin in the app store released version of matrix?
@NCKNE The sql command is probably the way to go for the app store version as well. I will put it in the docs. That said, I am yet to figure what an admin can do that a normal user cannot. Do special controls appear in the riot ui for admins?
OK, I found https://github.com/vector-im/riot-web/issues/4125 which is an open issue for implementing admin functions in Riot. I also found https://github.com/Awesome-Technologies/synapse-admin which can probably be run locally.
@girish Getting an error on verifying:
I chowned the matrix folder and server file to be owned by yellowtent. I had to use sudo to get the mkdir command to work.
I set permissions of 0600 on the server file.
There is no app at example.com.
Matrix is installed at matrix.example.com.
Do I need to manually add a DNS entry for example.com?
@will You need to have an app installed at
example.com. You can even set it to redirect to some other existing app i.e go to existing app -> Location -> Add redirection.
Hey! Works very very well. Runs smooth and does its job. But no LDAP would be a great feature for future
@will you can just enable registration in homeserver.yaml and you're good to go
well you can enable it yes, but users who registered were not able to login (?). I guess this is because it only accepts login from LDAP?
worked fine before when I tested it, did you also set
password_config: enabled: true localdb_enabled: true
and maybe restarted matrix?
@girish added a redirect for matrix, and it works! Is this only needed if an app lives at rimmer.cloud or do I need it regardless?
@will Only requirement is that it should be used by some app on Cloudron. You don't need to redirect it to matrix specifically.
example.comcan either be any app or it can redirect to any app. (At a technical level, all this means is that the Cloudron's reverse proxy is prepared & ready to answer requests for that domain).
@girish Will this requirement be patched in a future release?
@will there is no way around this requirement. the matrix protocol requires the apex domain to serve up those documents. is your concern that the domain
example.comcan be used to host a site somewhere else? If so, all you have to do is to move the
.well-knownsetup to that server/new location.
It would be cleaner to just have cloudron handle that for me. Small gripe, not a big deal at all.
Ah, Cloudron side limitation can definitely be fixed I agree that having to ssh and put files manually in a cryptic location is kinda crude. This will be fixed soonish but we just wanted to get the apps out for testing sooner rather than later.
@girish Dont get me wrong, Im thankful! Its great. I'm just giving a little feedback on possible improvements. Sounds like you are on it already

Might very well be, yes. I'm going to try and migrate the keys too. The migration is hard to dry run though
if you want to make sure this works, you could try with a test-instance, after that a clone and then the real thing good luck either way!
