Fellas... I can't believe it works... I created a DigitalOcean snapshot where you get asked a few things on first boot, and it gives you a working Mastodon installation, with SSL and everything. Holy shit
Deploying an instance is almost to the actionable part of my to-do list.
✅ Virtual host acquired
✅ Domain name registered
⭕️ Server configured
⭕️ Mastodon requirements installed
⭕️ Mastodon installed
⭕️ Mastodon configured
⭕️ Instance advertised

imho you get to take a couple days off for that, you're probably gonna need a little rest before people start installing it and probably breaking it in all kinds of fascinating new ways.
@violet $5. The assets are already pre-compiled when you boot the image. However for when you have to run assets:precompile after an upgrade, I have pre-configured some swap.
@Gargron Very cool! I've run my instance at DigitalOcean for a few months now (US$10 tier I believe), and it's been rock solid. Love their platform.
