You don't need to be a techy person to create your own Fediverse server.

There's an option called Managed Hosting where you pay a monthly fee and a hosting company does the techy stuff on your behalf. You own and run your server through the normal Fediverse browser interface, while behind the scenes the company does all the installation and upgrades.

I've done a step-by-step guide to creating a Fedi server through managed hosting here. It's written for creating a Mastodon server, but most of it applies to any kind of Fediverse server:

I've also done a list of managed hosting services for many kinds of Fediverse servers:

And, if you *are* a techy person, you can make setting up Fedi servers a lot easier by installing @yunohost on whatever hardware you're using:

yunohost.org

YunoHost has a huge amount of self-hostable apps (including Fediverse servers) you can install through its graphic interface:

looking for help with #yunohost and #pleroma and #epicyon

I am almost give up.
- I can't connect to the second one
- I can't use my own account with pleroma

@tofeo

Oh no :/

Maybe @yunohost can help?

Alternatively, I think @bob is a maintainer of Epicyon, maybe they can help?

Installation ok
Next step I have this screen but ... no enter button

@ctietze @yunohost

Yes, YunoHost is amazing :)

You do need a bit of tech knowledge to install it, but after that it's very easy to use.
