Admin of a lot of fediverse servers, among which the .world ones:
You can find me on these servers as @ruud
I receive a lot of messages, direct and mentions. I can’t reply to them all.
If you have an issue, please e-mail at email@example.com
(I’ll add links / descriptions later)
I host the following fediverse stuff:
And these are other things I host:
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
I run XWiki in Docker.
I do now!
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.
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! :-)
Cool! I feel a forgejo.world coming!
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.
All on Hetzner.
Probably forgot some…
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)

At least 2.8k :-)
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.
