Hey there folks. I'm thinking about running my own instance of mastodon, again. What's the most cost-effective, production-quality setup? Heroku? Amazon? Digital Ocean? Anyone out there doing this?
@Wildbill I hear a of those work good, as long as you have something like S3 or Wasabi to use as a CDN.
@Wildbill there’s masto.host for a mostly hosted solution.
@Wildbill looks like they use OVH
Do you have a cool domain name?
@tmtrains I'm just pondering ideas right now. I do have adventure.club that I had a masto instance running on a long time ago, but I was the only user cause I was just goofing with it.
@Wildbill Have you looked into pleroma? Apparently it runs on a potato
@Alonealastalovedalongthe That's a new thing to me. Googling now... (also I'm a fan of taters.)
@Wildbill I chose Masto.host, because I know nothing about coding. It might be an option for you, if you don't want to have it be work, you know?
@lilithsaintcrow Thanks for the pointer! I'm looking at them now - not sure which path I'm going to take yet, but having the knowledge is super helpful.
Also, thanks for writing amazing stories! Jill Kismet and Bannon and Clare have kept me entertained and going during many flights and late nights. =)
@Wildbill What a lovely compliment! Thank you very much for reading.
