I recently migrated my stuff over to hosting on Linode, and hadn't bothered to set up my Mastodon instance again as I was debating whether or not it was worth the effort. In the end I decided I want to support the cause though, so I'll make a more conscious effort to make this an experience worth keeping around for myself. Here's to giving the fediverse a second chance

I learned a LOT of hard lessons about testing backups too. There were a lot of things that should have been a lot easier than they were for me. But I'm glad I did it, as it also gave me the chance to migrate over to using docker (which I highly recommend for setting up new instances, it was so much easier than setting everything up locally on the server)
