I’m trying to set up WriteFreely on my Raspberry Pi 4. I installed it by downloading the arm7 tar ball from the releases page. The installation succeeded, the setup was smooth and I didn’t see any issues there. I was also able to get it up and running where I could see the page, login and type stuff. But when I hit publish, I’m getting the following pop up error:
Failed to post. Please try again.
I check the terminal to see if there are any logs, and I find this:
ERROR: 2020/01/06 17:08:16 posts.go:515: new post: is user suspended: User doesn’t exist.
Not sure why it says User doesn’t exist because I went through the Config wizard and created a user when asked to do so.
Here’s what my config looks like:
[server] hidden_host = port = 6767 bind = 192.168.0.36 tls_cert_path = tls_key_path = autocert = false templates_parent_dir = static_parent_dir = pages_parent_dir = keys_parent_dir = [database] type = sqlite3 filename = writefreely.db username = password = database = host = localhost port = 3306 [app] site_name = rrajath site_description = host = https://sub.domain.com theme = write editor = disable_js = false webfonts = true landing = simple_nav = false wf_modesty = false chorus = false disable_drafts = false single_user = true open_registration = false min_username_len = 3 max_blogs = 1 federation = true public_stats = true private = false local_timeline = false user_invites = default_visibility =
I also tried following this guide and I was running into other “Go” related issues.
Has somebody installed write freely on a Raspberry Pi? Can somebody help me out?
