Solved Opening Up Registration
My new Mastodon instance is by default closed to user registration.
I looked through the Cloudron and Mastodon docs and couldn't quite figure out how to open it up.
Any advice? Is there something to be run from the terminal? Sorry if I missed something simple but I cannot find the answer. Thanks!
@wexlerj I have been learning more about how users work in Cloudron and think I understand how I am supposed to add new users. I am still curious about the original question. No urgency. Thanks.
@wexlerj Make yourself a mastodon admin - https://docs.cloudron.io/apps/mastodon/#admin and then there is a setting under Administration -> Site Settings to allow registration.
Note that if you want to allow external users, it might be a good idea to install mastodon without Cloudron user management. That way the user handles of external users and the Cloudron usernames won't conflict. Alternately, you can add users in Cloudron and they can then get login to mastodon. Depends on your use case.
@girish Thanks. Some of this was just oversight on my part. But the advice you have given is very useful. All working/good now!
