I host the following fediverse stuff:

  • Lemmy (you’re looking at it)
  • Mastodon (3 instances)
  • Calckey oh sorry, now FireFish
  • Pixelfed
  • Misskey
  • Writefreely
  • Funkwhale
  • Akkoma (2 instances)
  • Peertube

And these are other things I host:

  • Kimai2
  • Matrix/Synapse
  • Silver Bullet
  • XWiki (3 instances)
  • Cryptpad (2 instances)
  • Gitea
  • Grafana
  • Hedgedoc
  • Minecraft
  • Nextcloud
  • Nginx Proxy Manager
  • Paperless-ngx
  • TheLounge
  • Vaultwarden
  • Zabbix
  • Zammad

Anything that the family uses. Because when I cease to exist, my wife isn’t gonna take over self-hosting! So e-mail, chat, documents etc.


I’m still running Synapse. Could I migrate this to Dendrite or others? Or would I have to just re-install and lose all messages…


Yes, terminology… I mean single instance. And although you can create pg_dumps of separate databases, a true (online) backup of separate databases is difficult. Tools like pgbackrest or barman don’t support it. (I mainly focus on Postgres)


Backup / restore gets complicated if you have multiple apps in 1 dB




Yeah it’s one of the domains I would love to have but GoDaddy has registered a bunch of them, trying to resell for big $$ which I refuse to do.


  • Powerful: Organizations & team permissions, CI integration, Code Search, LDAP, OAuth and much more. If you have advanced needs, Forgejo has you covered.

Selfhosters wanna host. But many people don’t. (Ergo: lemmy.world, mastodon.world (GitHub anyone?) so maybe people would like forgejo.world And if not, I’ll use it myself! :-)



#Forgejo v1.19.4-0 was just released! This is a security release.
Anyone running Forgejo? It's I think a fork of Gitea. They are also [implementing federation](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/issues/59)

Didn’t have time yet to check, still not federating?


What is the instance? I can check the logs.


By the way this is Media disk usage for my Mastodon instance, but it’s not really small ;-)


Do you need Mastodon, or can it be something similar? Mastodon does a lot of caching. For my single-user instance I run Akkoma, which is very leight-weight and has all (even more) features Mastodon has.


Rsync works fine for most data. (I use borgbackup) For any database data, create a dump using pg_dump or mysqldump or whatever. Then backup the dump and all other volumes but exclude the db volume.

I run lemmy.world on a VPS at Hetzner. They are cheap and good. Storage: I now (after 11 days) have 2GB of images and 2GB of database.


These are current graphs for lemmy.world (yet to add it to my Zabbix)

Diskspace:

Who wants to moderate SelfHosted community?

Looking for help with moderation, I have my hands full administering this server ;-) Requirements: - Need to have read and agree with the rules (https://mastodon.world/about - Need a little bit of time to keep an eye here

I think there’s a misunderstanding. In the docker-compose.yml, you specify services, and these services can use the official container images. The only thing the docker-compose actually does is define your services so you don’t have to specify them each time starting a container.


I love self-hosting software. Next to this Lemmy server, I host 10 other Fediverse servers. And of course a lot of tools I use for myself or work.
