Instructions for running your own lemmy instance.

For the moment, lemmy.ml is using an explicit allowlist for instances we federate with. If you currently run an instance, and would like to be added to join.lemmy.ml:

  • Let us know either on !lemmy_instances, or commenting here.
  • We’ll add you to our allowlist.
  • Add this block to your server’s lemmy.hjson config (for open federation):
federation: {
  enabled: true
  tls_enabled: true
  # allowed_instances: lemmy.ml,other_instance.tld,... uncomment this to use an allowlist
}
  • Type !announcements@lemmy.ml into your server’s search box, and subscribe to it to connect the two instances.

      This instance currently takes up 4.2 GB, with 3.5 GB pictures and 650 MB database. CPU usage is extremely low, under 10% on a 2 CPU VPS (including database, images etc).

          The only thing we changed with infrastructure since then is that we migrated to OVH, because they have DDoS protection. After that we didnt have any problems.

    This is a fantastic development. Way to go to the technical team.

    Nice, does it mean lemmy is considered stable now ?

      Yes, but of course finding bugs is a never-ending process.

        So the next release will be 1.0.0 ?

          Hrm, I haven’t thought about that, but our next release is v0.9.0 so we pry won’t skip over that.

    Looks like it’s working ✌

    can we have ‘local’ as option for the rss feeds please? We use these quite a bit to crosspost to mastodon & reddit

    Awesome!

    Regardless of whether it’s wanted or not, I bet this will be regarded as the flagship instance, and choices made for who gets on the allow list will serve to set a precedent that others may follow in how they decide to federate.

    I’ve always said I thought the Nutomic did a great job setting the tone for what was and wasn’t expected/allowed here, and I think it carries on the very excellent standard set by other activitypub projects like Mastodon and Funkwhale in terms of not being open to toxicity. I think the allow list can help with that as well in terms of setting a standard.
