I set up a mastodon instance and I’d like to interact with my lemmy instance (midwest.social) from it. Looking at the logs whenever I query a post, it returns a 200 OK with no data, but if I query a post on lemmy.ml it returns data like it should. I must have something configured wrong on my lemmy server.
Here is the log for a query:
Error encountered while processing the incoming HTTP request: lemmy_server::root_span_builder: NotFound lemmy_1 | 0: lemmy_apub::http::post::get_apub_post lemmy_1 | at crates/apub/src/http/post.rs:20 lemmy_1 | 1: lemmy_server::root_span_builder::HTTP request lemmy_1 | with http.method=GET http.scheme="http" http.host=midwest.social http.target=/post/326295 otel.kind="server" request_id=1b0dce53-f66f-4f1d-9d6a-212de403f62a http.status_code=404 otel.status_code="OK"
Support / questions about Lemmy.
Which post specifically can you not fetch? In general your instance seems to be configured correctly.
I think I found out what was happening. I was trying to fetch posts that had federated from a different Lemmy instance to my lemmy instance and then I was searching using that post URL instead of the original URL. It was this one https://midwest.social/post/326295.
I guess the post has to have originated from the instance that I’m searching with or it won’t return anything.
Right, you can use the fedilink in that case (colorful icon).
@seahorse Interesting, I can fetch this one now. Posting from mastodon.
FYI I subscribed to @cats@midwest and it boosted the post to the mastodon timeline. (Mastodon.social test account)
