Hosting Mastodon on DitialOcean

by Aaron Crowder on in SocialMast.xyz

I’ve been toying with the idea of setting up Mastodon on my own server for a while now. Today I finally got around to actually doing it (after a failed attempt a couple months ago). I found a guide that I loosely referred to and was immensely helpful at a couple points. At first I tried running on a super small $5 instance, which seemed fine during setup, but died every few requests when I started using it.
