OOh darn, do you want some more subscribers, because I can be a pod squatter on yours for sure. Can I inundate you with accounts?
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
for sure I am listed here https://github.com/solid/pods as experimental
was hard to follow the authentication panel today but most of the folks are very open-minded

For sure, could not agree more, they are very welcoming and absolutely first class individuals.

I think solid can be pimped out in so many areas but, pod providers need to determine if they accept democratic activism or not in advance
Deep inside us all, we are activists. And we are pretty stern on the way we see things, so, if some Johnny come lately decides to start out with freedom and create actions against activists, that will turn off allot of people. So I see myself providing pods for those who want to be outspoken.

somewhere I read last week the expectations exceed the possibilities of the system but I think on the long run we can only win

@ewingson i just signed up to your pods; seems its set to about 21Mb-ish i can't upload much more than that.

@ewingson
okay on todo find and set that parameter
Ghost
@ghost~5bfd3ed4d73408ce4fb0367e
Look at the quota, I think you can change that.
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
I found the parameter but will set it tomorrow as I need my nightly coffee now ;-)
Jules Cole
@Julian-Cole
what was it set to?
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
not looked it up yet its a server-side.ttl.inactive so its default when I rename the file I can set it
just have found and bookmarked the readme so far guess due to different timezones we'll see us the other days,okay ?
gotta go
Jules Cole
@Julian-Cole
bye! ;)
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
11p.m. here cu THANKYOU
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
the coffee stillhad to wait it was set to 25 mb still don' t know what I' d set it to don' t even know what would make sense and how much the machine has so I have to calculate tomorrow, bye
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
@Julian-Cole I gave it a quick shot and set it to 250MB
there was a warning of large quotas regarding the write speed but with 100GB overall I thought I could risk this scale
Ghost
@ghost~5bfd3ed4d73408ce4fb0367e
That is quite generous.

If anyone is interested in launching NSS servers, I am interested in investing in the same. PM me.

@DoctorBud Hi Dan thank you, sorry for my delay in a follow up question. I had to get on to a couple other things. I am running windows. Any suggestions? I tried running the openssl command and it didn't work, even after installing OPenssl. I also had the prompt for openssl and that command didn't work. Is there something I can do to run it on windows? In trying to troubleshoot I went the docker route, but that hangs when I try to access localhost:8443 I believe it is. I found the ip address and used that, that is when it hangs otherwise I received a proxy error

@DoctorBud
Sorry @SharonStrats , but I'm not really a Windows person. I did find this very long article (which you may have already seen) that implies that this keypair generation is possible, and that there are a few ways to do it. That's about all I can help with. https://forum.solidproject.org/t/pell-mell-on-setting-up-a-solid-server-on-windows/651
Sharon Stratsianis
@SharonStrats
Thanks @DoctorBud I will take a look. I actually just figured out how to run OPENSSL but now I am having an error. Just started troubleshooting hopefully it isn't a big problem. I will read through that article as well.
Sharon Stratsianis
@SharonStrats
@DoctorBud sorry to bother you again do you know what common name or server name I should put by chance?
Dan Keith
@DoctorBud
If you are playing around locally, use localhost. If you are putting it up on some real external domain, then use that. But prolly just localhost is what you want I think
Sharon Stratsianis
@SharonStrats
thank you! @DoctorBud
Sharon Stratsianis
@SharonStrats
@DoctorBud another question sorry. I am wondering have you used the docker procedure?
Dan Keith
@DoctorBud
No. I've been playing with NSS just using MacOS's Unix. Docker makes a lot of sense for Windows, though.
Dan Keith
@DoctorBud
But throw out your question anyway. I might have a clue.
Jules Cole
@Julian-Cole
@ewingson cool! and indeed very generous! this is perfect for the app i'm trying to build. thanks!
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
@Julian-Cole no prob @ core team perhaps we can add two columns in https://github.com/solid/pods and https://github.com/solid/solid-idp-list named quota and support email ??

@SharonStrats
@DoctorBud somehow I managed to get my windows working in terms of SSL, but it's strange that when I click login and click my localhost server it literally does nothing. If I click on the solid community I end up logging in with my solid webid. Does anyone have an suggestions?
Also, console.log doesn't seem to work ? I put a console.log in the login function for instance which I know should be getting called but it doesn't invoke it.
Dan Keith
@DoctorBud

@SharonStrats what works for me is:

  • Make sure I'm logged out of any Solid service (e.g., solid.community)
  • Go to my localhost POD and use the Register button to create a new account on the local POD
  • Login to the local POD using the newly created account

I was able to put a console.log into the login() function in auth_buttons.js and I saw it printed in my browser console when I clicked the Login button after using the above workflow. Remember that when you click Login, a popup HTML window is created, which has its own JS Debug Console. The console.log() message will appear in console where the Login button occurs, and NOT in the popup window's console.

Maybe this will help. Good luck.

Hi @DoctorBud I created an account on the register page a while back and now it has a little box telling me if you already have an account log in. So I click that button and when I do it gives me a login with password etc. It appears to login, although it goes to this page

once here, it just doesn't seem correct - wondering is this how it should look?
So when I am here I decide to click the login button again, which looks like this.

the console below is the one for the popup as you mentioned.
Thanks for all your help by the way. I appreciate it.
