Mastodon One-Click Install 301 Loops

I used the one-click install of mastodon and after running the setup on the node I get 301 loops.

root@mastodon:~# sudo journalctl -u mastodon-web
No journal files were found.
-- No entries --

No logs from Mastodon

root@mastodon:~# tail -f /var/log/nginx/access.log

I tried rerunning the install, I validated the env.production file is good and normal. I have 4gb of ram, the DNS is working because the cert was generated, and the 301 means it’s getting to the server.

Hello @kylek123

I believe that you’ve modified the question and removed all the sensitive information (IPs and domain names).

Was the initial deployment successful? I’ve seen this case when an HTTP to HTTPS redirection is set in place, is your domain name not resolving and can you check if the 301 is redirecting to an external source?

Regards

can whatever mod is reviewing my previous post please deny both that one and this one? I accidentally put my url in it

Ok so I looked at the nginx config and it has this config:

  listen 80;
  listen [::]:80;
  server_name social.korth.me;
  root /home/mastodon/live/public;
  location /.well-known/acme-challenge/ { allow all; }
  # location / { return 301 https://$host$request_uri; }
}

Looks like it’s catching the port 80 for some reason from NGINX despite using SSL. changing the redirect to the following redirects to google.

  location / { return 301 https://www.google.com; }

Now to figure out why Nginx isn’t seeing port 443 being used
