@syrup does it work locally? what error do you get? did you set up your domain name cause i don't see that in the guide

@cosine i'm using a VPS, so i don't know if it works locally. it doesn't seem to work using the IP address, but the IP address shows this and the domain just shows an http 500 error. i tried to set up my domain name, but judging from this i don't think it's working

@cosine i set up all the ipv4 and ipv6 records in my dns settings and did the domain stuff in the server setup, at least i think i did

@syrup http 500 hmm. idk at this point there's probly logs you could look into. someone who's set up masto in production could probly help better. i do know nginx will serve something different to the IP than the domain so you don't have to worry about the former
