Subdomain move problem


Remember how I moved my instance from a subdomain to the root domain and things seemed to work fine? About that...

Got a reply on one of my posts from someone who followed me on the subdomain, tried to reply back and I get an internal server error:

ERROR:    Exception in ASGI application
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/app/app/admin.py", line 193, in admin_new

   File "/app/app/actor.py", line 237, in fetch_actor
     raise ValueError("local actor should not be fetched")
ValueError: local actor should not be fetched

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

     logger.exception(f"Failed to lookup {mentioned_actor}")

Might be worth updating the documentation to emphasise not changing the domain or things could break spectacularly.

Well, to be fair, https://docs.microblog.pub/user_guide.html#profile kinda mentions that:

note that the following config items cannot be updated (without breaking federation): domain, username

Bit if you're interested, to workaround this issue, you just need to edit the app/admin.py file. On line 191, where it says:

  if tag.get("type") == "Mention" and tag["name"] != LOCAL_ACTOR.handle:

add condition to check that tag["href"] != LOCAL_ACTOR.ap_id. So this line should look like this:

  if tag.get("type") == "Mention" and tag["name"] !=

LOCAL_ACTOR.handle and tag["href"] != LOCAL_ACTOR.ap_id:

That all should go on one line, preserving indentation of that line.

p.s. I had same issue when moving my instance, too :)

I've since killed and rebuilt the server the way I wanted it in the first place but that may be good for anyone else who wants to dig too deep.

Nothing like testing in prod.
