We're missing documentation on how to run Mastodon as a hidden (e.g. #Tor) service. If you know how to do it, please either submit it or tell me so I can write it down


@Gargron Requires ssl so it's like normal but you need to have a self signed cert

@Sir_Boops Imagine you're explaining it to someone who never used Tor (because you are)


> Setup mastodon following the usual steps except generate a self-signed cert ( Because you /can't/ get certs for .onion addresses )

> Install tor and add append these three lines to the end of the torrc file

HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/tor/<some name>/
HiddenServicePort 80
HiddenServicePort 443

And that's it it's now on tor

Now it won't fed because other instances won't take the broken ssl but that's a masto issue ;p


@Gargron @Sir_Boops when did you tell masto's config to use WHAT onion domain?
i dont know anything about Tor so you can test with me 😈
