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.

    That’s interesting. I see that I still do everything from Lemmygrad, including subscribing to federated communities or posting content there.

      It’s not diferent than Mastodon. It’s pretty usable. I hope the instances will be always available for public view, this will be good for us.
