I'm probably going to move away from my current hosting solution for this instance (digitalocean) to get more disk space as we are surely going to run out of disk space pretty soon.

Any good hosting service to recommend? What country would be best? (I'm french if that matters)

@tagadmin I'm currently paying 40€ for this one so I'd like to keep it that way or below.

@dashie mmh doesn't seem like they have a lot more disk space than my current server (160Go), I can double that with them for the same price but it's not a long term solution

@ChatLibertaire are you removing remote media using the cron job ?
I'm running good with only 80G disk here

@dashie mmh no apparently I'm not :/

I tried to do one but I got this error message:

Scoped order is ignored, it's forced to be batch order.

Does that ring any bell? I'm using docker.

@dashie oh ok nevermind. I didn't notice it was a detached task. It looks like it's running rn. I'll keep you posted.

@ChatLibertaire yup it should have spawned a shitton of sidekiq jobs, look at it and disk space, it will reduce soon

@dashie Ok it removed 50Go. Running the task is going to be sufficient for now. I don't have to move away right now then ^^

Thanks a lot!

@ChatLibertaire put it in a crontab (can give you the line), it helps a lot !

@ChatLibertaire You can combine a VPS from Hetzner with their storage box. I know @Artanux did that, but maybe it's not easy...


@HgO @ChatLibertaire @Artanux no NFS with the storage box, only smb, that's to consider.
probably better getting a cheaper non-vps server and running a minio on it

@dashie I think @Artanux just mounted the storage box with sshfs (it was for his Nextcloud server though, maybe things would be different for Mastodon) @ChatLibertaire

@HgO @Artanux @ChatLibertaire didn't thought about sshfs personnally, mine is mounted using smb and it works for what it's used for (backup replica one time per week)

@EliteKonataFan yes, probably an hour of downtime to expect if everything goes according to plan. But it's not for now, in a few days maybe.

I could go with ovh ofc but not sure yet.

@ChatLibertaire @EliteKonataFan I bought one VM at OVH last week, it is still not available...

@ChatLibertaire I would recommend but it's:
1) Hosts in Russia only
2) For smaller projects

So idk sorry Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

@ChatLibertaire maybe (dedibox)?
it is hosted in France, as far as I know
and they have lots of disk space for fairly cheap

@ChatLibertaire Check out @mastohost if you managed, otherwhise I would recommend Upcloud.
