No Mastodon connection after update to 2021.07


After the upgrade to 2021.07 using the full zip files, I came across a bug which I could fix with help from annando on github.

After that I do not see any php errors but I also do not get any messages from all my mastodon contacts. Can anyone give me a hint about this?

I'm using nginx as webserver and also nginx as reverse proxy in front of it. PHP is 7.3.

@Michael Vogel I'm not seeing your comment on my instance but I followed your request for one example and copied a little more from the friend.log. But i didn't find anything from the exact same time:

@Michael Vogel or maybe this is more of what you had in mind? (I'm sorry. I'm not at home right now which makes searching and formating not so easy):

@Michael Vogel indeed I see the post from pirati.ca and even some coming from mastodon close before. I do even get a notification saying you commented. But nothing in my timeline.

I will have a look later or tomorrow and come back to you, but I updated the last ~6 versions of friendica with this nginx/proxy/php/mysql setup. And as I said with 2021.04 everything was doing fine.

Do you get the "compacting error" all the time?
Yes this messages is all over the place.
https://github.com/friendica/friendica/issues/10254
This is exactly what I see. Thanks for the link.

Do I understand correctly, that this change is merged into dev but not available in 2021.07?

Access doesn't seam to be the problem:

root@serverpi:/var/www/friendica/static# ll -d
drwxr-xr-x 2 www-data www-data 4096 Jul  4 20:50 .
root@serverpi:/var/www/friendica/static# ll *v1*
-rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data 3622 Jul  4 20:50 identity-v1.jsonld
-rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data 2059 Jul  4 20:50 security-v1.jsonld


But I think I'll try to switch to dev using git clone anyway. Until now I used the zip files to upgrade.

Also I'm on Raspberry pi OS 32bit (raspi 4) if this information has anything to with it.

Ok. Got it. The static files could not be accessed with my old nginx config. It is the sample from github but don't ask me how old exactly.

This is the "old" rewrite to front controller (I had a quick look in the history: 3+ years ago) which rewrites access to the folder /static also to the front controller:
  # rewrite to front controller as default rule
  location / {
    if ($is_args != "") {
        rewrite ^/(.*) /index.php?pagename=$uri&$args last;
    }
    rewrite ^/(.*) /index.php?pagename=$uri last;
  }

This is the latest rewrite which tries available files first:
  # rewrite to front controller as default rule
  location / {
    try_files $uri /index.php?pagename=$uri&$args;
  }

Thanks again for your fast help @Michael Vogel.
In the future I need to check the nginx config more frequently.
