any special tips to make a local test mastodon server? It won’t federate if I don’t put in a real domain, right?

In 2020 I’m finally taking the decision of stopping to do testing on my production server x_x idk why I didn’t do it before

@Siphonay it won't federate if it's not accessible, no

I mean, it may try to send stuff out, but other instances need to fetch the actor to do anything about it

Fetching with that test server will also fail unless some things are modified, because the server will sign with the instance actor, that can't be fetched by other instances to validate it
