ActiveityPub feed

Hi everyone.

My blogs don’t seem to be getting into ActiveityPub. I’m wondering if the service needs to be HTTPS or is HTTP okay?

It may not be true with all platforms, but I believe Mastodon at least heavily prefers / needs HTTPS. This is especially important with things like verifying signatures on ActivityPub content. Would definitely recommend using HTTPS if possible.

Thank you for replaying.

That is what I was afraid of. ATM, we have a certs problem that is only letting us do 4 subdomains so, we are stuck with a lot of HTTP sites :disappointed_relieved: so, I’ve setup a the public blog site on HTTP with read only access and the in house system for writing,

Hmm, have you looked at something like certbot for getting a free certificate?

WriteFreely can also take care of it for you if you run it in Standalone Server mode and set autocert = true (see these docs).

Certbot is the problem :disappointed_relieved: I’m not the network admin at MPAQ. He can’t get it to let use have more then 4 subdomains :frowning:
