Hello all, I had previously been using Mastodon on a server hosted by someone else, with the account @firstname.lastname@example.org. I decided to start running my own server, and attempted to do an account move to @email@example.com, but the move seems to have failed and my new account seems broken. Note that I have temporarily disabled the forwarding on the old account, although I did set up the move in the preferences of both accounts.
Just for reference, I followed the “Installing from source” setup instructions for my new install and I’m using a reverse proxy setup with HTTPS (i.e. both the Mastodon server itself and the reverse proxy are using HTTPS.) I don’t see anything in the nginx error logs on either server to help.
In particular, by “broken”, I mean that it seems impossible to follow my new account. You’ll note I have 0 followers, and that’s not for lack of trying, both from my old account, someone else helping me troubleshoot, and from what should have been added by the migration process.
It’s been long enough that I can re-try the migration from the old account, but I don’t want to do it just yet in case there is some problem I need to troubleshoot and fix.
Anyone have any suggestions on what to check next?
