    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Sameroom Can i change the port from 80 to 8000
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] the migration had completed on the docker installatioon
    [29:1ywoz-V4I1IKiPouk7sZ0jJKRM6e_DnFvXZLWTnnr4AM] the migration had completed on the docker installation
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] but when i type localhost:8000 it is showing blank page
    [29:1ywoz-V4I1IKiPouk7sZ0jJKRM6e_DnFvXZLWTnnr4AM] but when i type http://localhost:8000 it is showing blank page
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] Gerald, how did you change it to port 8000 ? Probably you found the “ports” section in the docker-compose file. It should look something like : “8000:80" . Then you would need to docker-compose stop your containers and start them again
    Sameroom
    @sameroom-bot
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] because port 80 is already in use
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] yea, so you would change the first number in the port specification only . The second “80” shouldn’t change as that is on the container side.

    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Succeed in deploying it
    Sameroom
    @sameroom-bot
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] thanks Sameroom
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] the mobile app failed and i don’t know where to find the .json file to edit it

    @sameroom-bot

    [David Losada, Ushahidi] Gerald, did you see this mention here? https://github.com/ushahidi/platform-release/#connecting-the-mobile-app. You would set the SITE_URL variable in your docker-compose.yml file , there is a commented out snippet for it.

    Note that this will not work with localhost, because that URL will be used by the mobile app in your phone to connect. It needs to be a proper address in your local network or the internet.

    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] OK
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] One more thing boss, with the Docker installation everything has the default installation and for me that is a security risk
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Production deployment is not working which should have allow me to do what i wanted
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Is it possible to alter the settings in docker-compose.yml and get the system to what you want
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] if, yes how can i add a domain name to the apache file

    Hello. I want to know that are you accepting proposals for technical writers anymore or have you found one??
    I got to know about GSoD very late and I came across your organization I am looking forward to applying for the role. Any luck???? Or am I too late already?

    [Unknown] Hi there IMPranshu! I am happy to hear you are interested about GSoD. Unfortunately we have closed the applications for this year. I wish you good luck and hope you find another organisation to apply to.

    Hii there,
    Has Ushahidi rolled out the results for GSoD 2022?

    Hi there! I'm currently wondering about the mapbox API key that is included in the source code (see also https://github.com/ushahidi/platform/issues/4401#issuecomment-1127541009 ). How do I find out, if I can use this key for own deployments? I did not find anything in the docs about this issue.
    The free version of mapbox has request limits. If anybody who deploys Ushahidi uses the same shared mapbox key, this might lead to reaching these limits quickly? @sameroom-bot
    Sameroom
    @sameroom-bot

    [David Losada, Ushahidi] Dear @ptandler:[matrix.org](http://matrix.org) , that’s a great question. The folks at Mapbox have been very gracious with us and our mission, and as such the limits of the keys we have with them are a bit more generous than usual.

    As long as each individual deployer keeps the usage to normal levels and there are no cases of egregious abuse, there shouldn’t be any problems. In case of heavy traffic due to just organic success due to great civic impact, we would work with you and Mapbox to find a solution. If cases of abuse are detected, we would work with Mapbox to blacklist the offending domains.

    In addition to that, in case you are looking to make commercial use of Ushahidi technology with Mapbox maps, we would very much encourage that you assumed Mapbox license costs in your own budget :pray:

    Hi Ushahidi-Team. It looks like the Webhooks on https://mappingmediafreedom.ushahidi.io/ are broken again. There have been several changes today and in the last days but the last webhook invocation was on 2022-06-03 09:45:30 UTC.

    Hello @tuxpiper what's the difference between platform, platform-client and platform-release? Can platform-release do the combined function of platform and platform-client?
    Sameroom
    @sameroom-bot

    [Unknown] @dcardinal , if you are specifically referring to downloads, you are exactly right, platform-release is the combination of platform and platform-client , pre-arranged in an opinionated way to install them together at once.

    A more flexible installation would result from downloading and setting up platform and platform-client separately , but the product functions would be the same.

    [John Obiorah] Sameroom thanks a lot for the clarification.

    [John Obiorah] Sameroom is it possible to customise the Ushahidi mobile app to use a local or user defined logo?
    David Losada
    @tuxpiper

    @ChiefObiorah_twitter This came up last year:

    [David Losada, Ushahidi] for the mobile app, I think the Ushahidi branding files are not included in the open source repository . The branding folder contains the following files:

    android_banner.png: PNG image data, 1280 x 720, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced android_feature.png: PNG image data, 1024 x 500, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced android_icon.png: PNG image data, 512 x 512, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced android_promo.png: PNG image data, 180 x 120, 8-bit/color RGB, non-interlaced build.json: JSON data icon.png: PNG image data, 1024 x 1024, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced splash.png: PNG image data, 2732 x 2732, 8-bit/color RGBA, non-interlaced
    you would have those files under projects/<your project name> in the mobile source repo . And then set the environment variable PROJECT=<your project name> as the ionic commands are invoked
