so... ubuntu 20.04 LTS and lynxchan latest (version 2.5.0) starts up each time without any errors or warnings at all. Literally, all you have to do is change a couple lines in your tutorial, use the code i posted. It works fine with or without checking the admin box to store files on disk, which is supposed to be way easier on the server. You could update your tutorial in like 1 minute, and people would have a nice tutorial for the latest version with ubuntu 20.04!!!! Please please do it, it really helps new ppl to install lynxchan and it means a lot to ppl. Thanks!!!!!!!!
