sorry about vanishing for 12 hours, it looks like my instance ran out of space. :)
@eylul what fedi app are you running? I want to spin up my own at some point.
@paperdigits I am using mastodon, which works very well when installed via yunohost. just not sure what is accumulating data so fast. even with statuses from 7 days I have like 30GB of data?
that being said still recommend it if you can afford the vps, or have an old laptop etc. I know some people also use pleroma though
@Sandra @paperdigits @kemonine for reliability, and distribute the weight of bandwidth a little in case something goes popular, is my guess. Generally hotlinking to another server for media is not cool.
What happened here was my fault though, I need to setup a cron job to clear old toots but I keep forgetting to. (even then it was almost 2 months worth of data that filled up the 80GBs I had (and about 18GB of that is a backup that is sitting there)
