Setup my own Mastodon instance because if I'm going to go federated, that feels appropriate?

Running it on a tiny 1 vCPU / 1GB Digital Ocean droplet which I boosted to 2GB during compilation from source (some OOM otherwise)

Sidekiq (sidekiq.org/) which is the included job queue, was also running with many workers to begin. I sliced that down and was able to resize my droplet

I imagine there's a lot of potential for making the single-user instance deploy easier!

Follow

These are old, but I found GitHub issues from the sidekiq author on how to further reduce. Ultimately with running a single-user instance, I'm not going to need such a level of complexity/scale as a typical server would

github.com/mastodon/mastodon/i

Will look at this next.
