@mdszy if you happen to be the same person who posted on the caddy forum - do you still have an active working config?

hi it's me (that's my old github but apparently the email still got sent, whodathunk)

this is the config that i currently use that works, obv with a different domain but ya know

example.com {
        @try_masto {
                file
        }

        root * /home/mastodon/glitch/public

        handle @try_masto {
                file_server *
        }

        handle /api/v1/streaming* {
                reverse_proxy * localhost:4000
        }

        handle {
                reverse_proxy localhost:3000
        }

        encode gzip

        header {
                Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=31536000;"
        }

        header /emoji* Cache-Control "public, max-age=31536000, immutable"
        header /packs* Cache-Control "public, max-age=31536000, immutable"
        header /system/accounts/avatars* Cache-Control "public, max-age=31536000, immutable"
        header /system/media_attachments/files* Cache-Control "public, max-age=31536000, immutable"

        handle_errors {
                root * /home/mastodon/glitch/public
                rewrite 500.html
                file_server
        }
}

media.example.com {
        rewrite * /examplecom{uri}
        reverse_proxy https://cdn.xyz.abc
}

@szyszyszyszy thanks for chiming in :)

Is the media-domain related to mastodon as well?

Otherwise the config seems to be the same as in that thread. Do you use the latest version of Mastodon (v3.3.0)?
With either your file or the one from the gist I can login and visit subpages like about, explore, even my account settings. But the homepage, the most important part, does not work appropriately.

Dear @xerus2000 , sorry for late response.
I checked new Caddyfile specification and behavior.
Caddy version 2.2.0>= has different behavior for file matcher with / path.

So, I added not path / in line 8.
Please use this instead. Have a good caddy life.

@yukimochi would you mind to post your complete mastodon config? I am unable to set up this correctly (I already use caddy with other docker containers in my server, but mastodon is particularly hard for me)

Did you ever get this working correctly?

One huge pro tip here is to run something like usermod -aG mastodon caddy .. mine was refusing to load assets and static files and it took me ages to figure out it was a permissions issue :-)

@rnaff I've put it up at https://gist.github.com/peterc/fef53e6a308d412ab793148a1808977a - I think it's pretty much the same as the one here.
