I ran out of space on my instance which is hosted on linode. I used their automated system to upgrade the node so it had more hard drive space.
Since I did that, images have not displayed on my instance. Either from existing posts or new posts. How do I fix this?
I submited a question on GitHub https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2637 and was asked to provide a "the docker compose logs" and to try restarting "docker compose".
I rebooted the virtual server, which I assume would restart the docker compose. If not, how do I restart it?
Also can you give me the exact commands to:
- do a docker compose restart and where I do it from
- generate the docker compose logs and how to limit the size if it is likely to be to big to upload to github and where to run the commands from.
Thanks in advance for your help.
What does this mean for Lemmy instances and the practice of blocking and banning users and instances? Or even moderation? (I know Lemmy has not grown into the ranks of Twitter & Facebook YET).
Other states and countries either have passed or are introducing similar laws - so it will not just be a Texas thing - and depending on the specifics of the law, it may not be confined to Big Tech.
> The ruling clears the way for Texans and the Texas Attorney General's office to file lawsuits against Big Tech giants like YouTube, Twitter and Facebook if they take down or censor certain political viewpoints.
I put together this list of the top 10 Lemmy instances by page views - mainly to see what I could learn to improve what we are doing and be more successful.
I noticed a few things I found curious, so I thought I might raise them here and see if you had any suggestions/explanations.
I used a tool called [SiteShow](https://www.statshow.com/) to gather the info that has a bunch of different data points. (BTW I have no idea how accuate this tool is - if you have a better suggestion for me to use in the future, please let me know).
So here are some of the things I noticed:
None of the Top 10 had a Page Rank from Google or Quantcast. Is there something we can change to get a ranking - which I believe helps improve our directory and search engine rankings? I double checked with [another site for a page rank](https://checkpagerank.net/index.php) and it found all the instances were ranked (Google PageRank) between 2 out of 10 and 3 out of 10 except Lemmy.ml which was ranked 4 out of 10. Still seems very low - wondering what we can do to improve this?
About half the top 10 instances were indexed with Google, Bing, & Yahoo
But the other half were not.
This surprised me because I thought once a search engine found one of our instances, it would have spidered its way through the rest of the instances. I would have thought being indexed by all the major search engines would be important to bring more traffic and users to our Lemmy communities.
Lastly for the instances that were indexed by the major search engines, as a general rule, they had a lot fewer pages indexed then I would have expected based on the number of posts listed in these instances SideBars. I wonder what we could do to get these search engines to index more of our pages.
What about at the bottom of each post after the comments we lists 3 other "You might also be interested in" links to posts. Say 2 randomly selected from the same community and a third randomly selected from another community? Maybe a 4th randomly selected from a different instance?
So I have had my Lemmy up and running for a few weeks now and I thought I would like to enable federation.
I saw the note to insert this code https://github.com/lemmynet/lemmy/blob/main/config/config.hjson#L64
And I saw somewhere we could do it through the interface.
So I click on the settings cog and insert it into the Admin Settings - Site Configuration box and click save.
But I always get an error message that says "Couldn't update this site"
What am I doing wrong? How do I enable federation?
Thanks is advance for your help.
