I'm mainly interested in seeing the other side of one..
@mgrondin Definitely! I used to help a college friend out with his dedicated server just to have a playground for projects like that.
@mgrondin I heard that Mastodon requires a quite a lot of resources (mainly RAM), while Pleroma can run also on low end hardware (like the RPi).
Why not? Fediverse is made got being decentralized
I really want to. Seems most setup guides i find are for Ubuntu. My VPS runs Arch. Guess i'll have to adapt if i decide to set on up. Also would want to get a new domain for it i think...something not too personal incase i decide to let people sing up...would be odd(for others) giving out things with my name in it...We shall see.
oh that will be more than enough to fun that :D
is it a vps or dedicated?
@selea it is a VPS. Not sure how many other VM's are hosted on it. The ram is advertised as guaranteed. Not sure how dedicated the CPU cores are.
@selea it's the VPS M SSD from contabo
To me the price was right. The storage is what brought me to them...all others the storage is minimal. I know about things like s3 storage and others but since i have never used i wanted local storage. Never looked but s3 or others cost as well.
@selea it is. The only thing that's a problem sometimes is the connection speed. But it Hink it's somehow my ISP having a bad connection/route to Germany for some reason...if that makes sense.
Most times(like 99%) it's not a problem. Only the initial upload of data took longer. Now I don't really notice slowdowns.
