@returntrip try it and let us know!
@s31bz Will get some feedback first 😃
@returntrip Let me provide you with some live stats from my instance.
This is the output of my `docker stats` for mastodon. Hope that's helpful.
@returntrip Great question, a quick search didn't yield much detail about minimums.
I see @sheogorath has a pretty solid readout of stat limits for their instance, and i'd think you'd want bare minimum 2GB for all the different service backends based on that screengrab.
Not in the original convo, but pleroma has lighter sys reqs and may be more appropriate for that instance type.
@returntrip 1GB is very tight. People have reported running out of memory when trying to deploy a new version.
Maybe if you put postgres on a different VM. Don't even think of running elasticsearch.
I'd chose a different server implementation that's better suited for such a system. Maybe Pleroma or Honk.
@galaxis honk, must check it out, first time I hear of it 😃
@returntrip it is possible to run single user with 1GB ram. If be concerned about disk space, and I'd consider something other than mastodon, but ...
Hey @cb , yep I got pleroma running on it, I just have not switched to it cause I started messing around with other stuff 😃. All in all seems to run decently.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
