Can not install peertube

My YunoHost server

Hardware: VPS bought online
YunoHost version:
I have access to my server : through the webadmin
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no

Description of my issue

L’installation de peertube n’a pas répondu, j’ai essayé plusieurs fois et attendu des heures et je n’arrive toujours pas à l’installer !

Hi xiangqu,

Bienvenue au forum!

Je ne parle pas Francais, je continues en Anglais :stuck_out_tongue:

I seem to recall Peertube needs quite a bit of RAM when installing (but it was a long time ago I did). How much RAM does your VPS have?


Is there any info at the bottom of the screen ,

You can pull it upwards, to give information about the current step.

If that does not work, could you close the browser tab and login again, and go to tools → logs


and click on the log for Peertube installation. Maybe it takes a while, it would look like this:

after that you can press the green button to upload the error and share the link with us.

The VPS must have the option to log in via SSH. Could you try figuring out how to do that? If the installation via the webadmin hangs, it is difficult to troubleshoot. Installing via SSH could give more info.

Que disent les journaux d’installation ?

The log is

I had the same issue in the previous days.
It’s an upstream issue, the dependency (Yarn) server being badly reachable I guess.

You may retry now or later, I don’t know how it will be fixed.


That’s an upstream issue… with slow disks.

You could try this branch GitHub - lapineige/peertube_ynh: Federated (ActivityPub) video streaming platform using P2P for YunoHost (see Raise timeout duration for Yarn (helps with slow hardware) by lapineige · Pull Request #397 · YunoHost-Apps/peertube_ynh · GitHub) to see if it solves it :slight_smile:
