Mastadon on Reclaim?


#1

Hi,

Just wondering: has anyone tried setting up a Mastadon instance on Reclaim? I kind of skimmed the set up instructions and it seemed plausible, but I thought I’d check and see if anyone else has already gone down this road before digging deeper.

I’m fairly certain the software won’t work in a shared hosting environment (for example it uses Postgres and not MySQL and requires a Redis object cache) and requires a VPS to support all the tech requirements. Even then we briefly played with setting it up on a server and it was incredibly non-trivial even for myself who I would consider fairly well-versed in this stuff. Easiest path to running it is probably Docker image on Digital Ocean and running it as a Docker container but even that has it’s own level of complexity.
