I was originally trying to use Mastodon with Apache and MySQL (for reasons I can go into), rather than the apparently-assumed defaults of nginx and Postgres. It's never explicitly stated "no, Mastodon will not work with anything else", but this pretty much turned out to be the case -- so for my second attempt, I started over with a completely fresh server... and got stuck again anyway.

I'm using these instructions as a guide.

  • /take 1 was where I foolishly tried to use MySQL instead of postgres
  • /take 2 was where I tried to do it by the book, approximately May-July of 2017
  • /take 3 is trying to do it by the book again on 2017-12-31, but after installing Redmine from a package
