Matrix and Element Install Guide

I’ve seen Matrix and Element mentioned a few times around here.

So here is a docker setup guide for anyone wanting to quickly run their own federated messaging server :slight_smile:

Best Wishes,


I love my matrix server, and Element has taken over as the messaging app of choice. Now even when it’s just me and the wife texting back and forth, I own the data.

When we all fully realize how they all intend to use our data against us, it’ll be too late.


Yep, been running my homeserver for 2 years. Mostly just me, my gf and my son. I join some federated rooms now and again, but I have dedicated channels for memes, a group for all of us, her and I and her and my son have their own chat. It’s dope.
