I'm gonna try to move my instance's media to object storage today... this is the only newish writeup I've found about it: https://github.com/cybrespace/cybrespace-meta/blob/master/s3.md It looks thorough and simple but Mastodon is never as easy as it seems 🙄😬😛🤷♀️ I'll stop the Mastodon services in 15 minutes so wish me luck while you can 🤞 ...Bye! #SingleUserInstance #s3
To be fair I've never actually had a real problem maintaining my Mastodon instance, it's just annoying that I have to look up how to use Ruby developer tools every time ... And they're not very obvious compared to other languages. Or maybe that's just me. Mastodon has made me want to avoid Ruby forever 😛 I miss pip
My instance is back online and shouldn't go offline again for a long time now that I've moved all the resources to object storage #SingleUserInstance
Turns out I was getting 500 errors because my instance didn't have permission to upload to the S3 bucket, due to it being a cross-origin request. This was accumulating in the background along with some pre-existing issues caused by relays. Both have now been fixed so my #SingleUserInstance is finally using an appropriate amount of RAM again! 🔧 🐜
@brianna yayyy good goin!!
