Hi everyone! Our migration went reasonably smoothly but not perfectly.
Our first attempt to backup and restore the (compressed) 33GB* of core Mastodon files and databases failed. We tried again with uncompressed data and the migration worked perfectly.
The whole process took just over an hour.
The instance should now be more responsive, and we have plenty of room for future growth.
* Our media is stored in external object storage totalling around 1TB, but didn't have to be moved.
Hello! This is mas.to, a general-purpose, predominantly English-speaking instance. We're enthusiastic about Mastodon, and want to make this instance special. We've settled on a nice, short domain name, keep up-to-date with the latest Mastodon updates and features and want to make an easygoing and fun place to interact with other Mastodon users.
