## Installation
### Docker
While we don't provide docker files, other people have written very good ones. Take a look at https://github.com/angristan/docker-pleroma or https://github.com/sn0w/pleroma-docker.

### Dependencies
* Postgresql version 9.6 or newer
* Elixir version 1.7 or newer. If your distribution only has an old version available, check [Elixir's install page](https://elixir-lang.org/install.html) or use a tool like [asdf](https://github.com/asdf-vm/asdf).
* Elixir version 1.7 or newer. If your distribution only has an old version available, check [Elixirs install page](https://elixir-lang.org/install.html) or use a tool like [asdf](https://github.com/asdf-vm/asdf).
* Build-essential tools
### Configuration
* Run `mix deps.get` to install elixir dependencies.
* Run `mix pleroma.instance gen`. This will ask you questions about your instance and generate a configuration file in `config/generated_config.exs`. Check that and copy it to either `config/dev.secret.exs` or `config/prod.secret.exs`. It will also create a `config/setup_db.psql`, which you should run as the PostgreSQL superuser (i.e., `sudo -u postgres psql -f config/setup_db.psql`). It will create the database, user, and password you gave `mix pleroma.gen.instance` earlier, as well as set up the necessary extensions in the database. PostgreSQL superuser privileges are only needed for this step.
* For these next steps, the default will be to run pleroma using the dev configuration file, `config/dev.secret.exs`. To run them using the prod config file, prefix each command at the shell with `MIX_ENV=prod`. For example: `MIX_ENV=prod mix phx.server`. Documentation for the config can be found at [``docs/config.md``](docs/config.md)
* Run `mix ecto.migrate` to run the database migrations. You will have to do this again after certain updates.
* You can check if your instance is configured correctly by running it with `mix phx.server` and checking the instance info endpoint at `/api/v1/instance`. If it shows your uri, name and email correctly, you are configured correctly. If it shows something like `localhost:4000`, your configuration is probably wrong, unless you are running a local development setup.
* The common and convenient way for adding HTTPS is by using Nginx as a reverse proxy. You can look at example Nginx configuration in `installation/pleroma.nginx`. If you need TLS/SSL certificates for HTTPS, you can look get some for free with letsencrypt: <https://letsencrypt.org/>. The simplest way to obtain and install a certificate is to use [Certbot.](https://certbot.eff.org) Depending on your specific setup, certbot may be able to get a certificate and configure your web server automatically.

## Running
* By default, it listens on port 4000 (TCP), so you can access it on http://localhost:4000/ (if you are on the same machine). In case of an error it will restart automatically.

### Frontends
Pleroma comes with two frontends. The first one, Pleroma FE, can be reached by normally visiting the site. The other one, based on the Mastodon project, can be found by visiting the /web path of your site.
### As systemd service (with provided .service file)
Example .service file can be found in `installation/pleroma.service`. Copy this to `/etc/systemd/system/`.
Running `systemctl enable --now pleroma.service` will run Pleroma and enable startup on boot.
Logs can be watched by using `journalctl -fu pleroma.service`.

### As OpenRC service (with provided RC file)
Copy ``installation/init.d/pleroma`` to ``/etc/init.d/pleroma``.
You can add it to the services ran by default with:
``rc-update add pleroma``

### Standalone/run by other means
Run `mix phx.server` in repository's root, it will output log into stdout/stderr.

### Using an upstream proxy for federation
Add the following to your `dev.secret.exs` or `prod.secret.exs` if you want to proxify all http requests that pleroma makes to an upstream proxy server:
Add the following to your `dev.secret.exs` or `prod.secret.exs` if you want to proxify all http requests that Pleroma makes to an upstream proxy server:
config :pleroma, :http,
proxy_url: "127.0.0.1:8123"
```elixir
config :pleroma, :http,
proxy_url: "127.0.0.1:8123"
```
This is useful for running pleroma inside Tor or i2p.
