Why I'm trying this

This is mostly a test, I've been looking into alternative blogging platforms for a while, and this seems pretty much like exactly what I've been looking for . Things like medium and such are centralized, and so they're not really of much interest to me . Not to mention, they're also closed source which doesn't really matter all that much for a blog i suppose but I'd still rather know what's going on under the hood at least .

Why open source matters

I think it's important generally, even for the little things, to try to understand how everything works, all they way down, or at least as much as you can . The more you understand about the underlying systems will help you better understand some of the quirks the higher abstraction layers might have . Generally, it's just better to try to know what you're doing as best you can .

What I'm looking for

In this case, being based on activitypub, I already know to a degree what to expect from this . What mostly important, i.e. what's going to change from other platforms, is what's of most interest to me . I've looked into plume for example, a similar concept to this one, but was a little disappointed by it, so I'm hoping this one fulfills my needs better .

Using a Hetzner Cloud, a Domain from Contabo and YunoHost

This is a guide for total beginners (like me). You don't need to know anything before using this guide. If you still need further assistance feel free to contact me. If you want I can also set up the whole thing for you for a one time pay-what-you-like payment.

1. Get a Server at Hetzner

Hetzner is a green host for servers, so it runs on 100% renewable energy. Visit https://www.hetzner.com/ and register for an account. Hetzner will ask you for some information including a billing method. When you're finished setting up your account go to cloud. There click on โ€œ+ New Projectโ€. Give the Project a name, like โ€œmy first Fediverse instanceโ€. Now click on โ€œAdd Serverโ€. For your server location choose Helsinki and for OS image choose Debian 10. For Type you can start with the cheapest server CX11. You can skip all the other steps (maybe give the server a name) and click โ€œCreate and Buy Nowโ€. Boom, you have a server. That's the first step completed. Congrats!

2. Get a Domain

Next you'll need a domain. The domain is the url where your website, in this case your Fediverse instance, can be found. So something like https://mydomain.org/

For this guide I'll use https://my.contabo.com/ to get a domain, but you can use other sites as well. Maybe some things will be a little different than explained in this guide then, but some domains may be cheaper on other sites.

Visit the contabo website and register for an account. Here you'll be asked for a billing method too.

Once you have an account login to https://my.contabo.com/. There go to โ€œdomainsโ€ in the control panel. Enter your desired domain name and click โ€œOrder domainโ€. Now contabo will check if the domain is available. If not choose another domain and click Next to check if that one is available. In step 2 you'll be asked for contact details. This should be pre-filled with the info you gave when signing up. Now we get to step 3. Open up your Hetzner cloud in a different tab. Click on your project and then on your server. There you should find the IPv4 address. Click on it to copy it. Go back to the contabo tab and choose โ€œOwn IP addressโ€ and in the next line paste your copied IP address. Click Next and then Place Bidding Order. Now you're done with step 2 of this guide. Yay! It may take a while until your domain is registered, but you can go on with Step 3 already.

3. Install YunoHost

You should have gotten an eMail from Hetzner containing login credentials. Namely username โ€œrootโ€ + a password. Go to your Hetzner server under Cloud > your project > your server and click the โ€œ>_โ€ button.

You're now in the console of the server. This may look scary, but I'll guide you through it. First you'll be asked for your login credentials. Enter root and hit enter. Now you'll be asked for the password. Unfortunately you can't just copy-paste it, so you'll have to enter it manually. Nothing will appear when you enter the password, but once you hit enter you should be logged in. Next you'll be asked to change the password. Unfortunately you'll have to enter the old password once more but then you can enter the new password โ€“ also twice. Choose a password that you don't use all the time but that you can remember. It's best to generate and store your password in a password safe like KeePass.

For the next steps check the YunoHost guide to make sure the info I'm sharing here is still correct. Enter curl https://install.yunohost.org | bash in the console. Now YunoHost will be installed you'll be asked once to confirm. Just select Yes with your arrow keys and hit enter. You'll know when YunoHost is finished installing when you can write again. Now close the console. Next step completed. โœ”๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰

4. Configure YunoHost.

Once again copy your IP address (Open up your Hetzner cloud. Click on your project and then on your server. There you should find the IPv4 address. Click on it to copy it.) Now paste it in the url bar of your browser and hit enter. You'll see a warning that the site is unsafe. Click โ€œadvancedโ€ and ignore the warning. Now you'll see the YunoHost portal. Enter the password you chose in step 3. YunoHost will perform some post-installation processes. Just wait until they are done. Now set up a user. Click on โ€œUsersโ€, โ€œ+ New userโ€ and fill in the details. Once created click on the user, click โ€œEdit User's Accountโ€ and add a forward eMail address, so you don't miss any important eMails. Now go back home, click on Diagnosis and start the initial diagnosis.

5. Set Up DNS and Let's Encrypt

When the diagnosis is done check out the errors displayed in the category DNS records. You'll need to fix the errors for the categories basic and mail. To do that go to your Contabo control panel (in another tab), โ€œyour servicesโ€ and click on โ€œmanageโ€ besides your domain. Now click on โ€œedit DNS zonesโ€. The YunoHost diagnosis results tell you exactly which entries to delete (you can't edit entries) and what to add. When the Type is txt just copy the text between the quotation marks, not the quotations marks themselves. Once you added all necessary DNS records run the YunoHost diagnosis again. You may have to wait a while until the diagnosis tool will run the diagnosis again and not just display the prior results. When you ran diagnosis again and the DNS errors are fixed you can go to home, domains, click on your domain then on โ€œSSL certificateโ€ and then โ€œInstall Let's Encrypt Certificateโ€. If you're still waiting for the diagnosis tool you can continue with step 6. and finish step 5. later. If you finished step 5. congrats! You're almost done.

6. Install the Desired Fediverse Software.

In your YunoHost portal go to โ€œApplicationsโ€, โ€œ+ Installโ€, choose the category โ€œSocial Mediaโ€ and click โ€œ+ Installโ€ besides the App you want to install. On the next page, depending on the app you chose, you'll be asked a few things about the app. If there is a language option make sure you choose the right one or you'll e.g. install Mastodon in French when you can't speak french and neither can the people you want to use Mastodon. After that just click on โ€œInstallโ€ and wait. Once that is finished go back to step 5 if you still have to install the Let's Encrypt certificate, otherwise you're done! Congratulations, you are now the proud host of a Fediverse instance. You can find your instance under the domain you chose in step 2. Log in with your YunoHost user data and start configuring the Admin settings.

Bonus: Installing more than one App

You can repeat the whole guide to install another app under another domain or you can use the following steps to install another app under a sub domain of your current domain. In your YunoHost site go to โ€œDomainsโ€, โ€œ+ Add domainโ€, select โ€œI already have a domain nameโ€ฆ โ€ and enter a sub domain of your domain. E.g. if you want to install mastodon you could name the sub-domain โ€œmastodonโ€, so you would enter mastodon.mydomain.org. Then click โ€œAddโ€. Now run diagnosis again and enter the needed DNS zones in your Contabo control panel. Now go to โ€œApplicationsโ€ and install another app. Make sure you choose the newly created sub-domain to install the app to.

Further Guides?

Do you need me to guide you through setting up the admin settings of your Fediverse instance? If enough people need it I'll write another guide and link it here. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Pixelfed is a decentral, federated, ad-free & free-software photoblogging Platform. Decentral and federated means that there are multiple servers which are all their own platforms, but they communicate with each other, building a larger social network. Pixelfed is actually part of the Fediverse.

What does Pixelfed feel like?

Pixelfed is a lot like Instagram. You can only post image posts and your profile will display thumbnails of the images you uploaded. You can like & share other people's images and comment on them.

What are some advantages over Instagram?

  • No tracking. Instagram is owned by Facebook and makes millions gathering your data. Behind Pixelfed there is no big company, but a community of volunteers. The decentral nature of Pixelfed means there is no one big data center with all the information of all users, but multiple servers with little data. You can even have your own server and own all your data yourself.
  • No ads & no algorithm. Pixelfed doesn't choose what you get to see and there are no ads.

How to get an account?

First you need to pick an instance โ€“ a server that will be home to your account. There is a list of instances ordered by the number of accounts they host here. If it's important to you to get a lot of followers you best pick an instance with lots of people on it. If you don't speak English there is e.g. Pixelfed.de for German speakers and Pixelfed.uno for Italians. Once you picked an instance, just visit it and click on โ€œregisterโ€. You'll need an eMail address and a password.

How to get started with your account

First fill out your profile info. Upload an avatar, add a website if you have one and pick your pronouns. Next post your first image and maybe add some text about you. Who are you? What do you do? What kind of posts can people expect from you? Maybe use the #introduction or #introductions hashtags.

Visit the public timeline which can be found under /timeline/public and start liking some posts and following some people. Posts by people you follow will appear in the home timeline.

Federation

Federation, meaning the discovery of posts and users from other instances doesn't work perfectly for Pixelfed yet. Basically you can be seen and followed by anybody on the fediverse, but following profiles on other Pixelfed instances or elswhere on the Fediverse still has some flaws. To follow you other people first have to discover your account and you can make that a lot easier by having a Mastodon account, where you share your Pixelfed posts.

Mobile Apps

Pixeldroid is an unofficial Pixelfed client for Android. For now there is no iOS app.
