Self-hosting Pixelfed on OpenBSD
In case you don’t already know, Pixelfed is a media sharing oriented solution that federates with Fediverse using the ActivityPub . And I like it also because it is based on PHP. This makes it quite simple to be hosted on OpenBSD. And here’s how I do this.
GoToSocial on OpenBSD, a Fediverse adventure
In early 2019, I got fed up with Twitter Ads and recommendations etc. So I started looking for alternatives and read about Mastodon. As I was especially looking for OpenBSD news, tricks etc, I finally landed on bsd.network. It turned out to be a really nice place to hang out ; and not BSD-centric at all. People there are great. And MastoAdmins are kind and caring people. A couple of years later, I decided that I would host my own instance on the Fediverse. And the journey began.
