So, this happened. #snow
Good morning, fediverse. 😁
CAT: I'm huuuuuungry
ALSO CAT: Thanks for going out at 10:00PM and buying me food, but I'm not hungry anymore.
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails mastodon:confirm_email USER_EMAIL=new_usr_fullemail.com
Then you will run:
RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rails mastodon:make_admin USERNAME=just_usr_name
to make the usr an admin on the instance.

Twitter responded much more to my statuses than Facebook, but Mastodon is basically spoiling me rotten.
Hello @keezee, Mastodon runs in memory and can leverage AWS S3 data buckets for user media content. The database retains your instance's data. While your web and worker processes are specified in your deployment files. 😀 Are you spinning up a VM from scratch? Or using a container type service?
PSA: If you are in the web view of a remote instance of some user or toot, you cannot directly reply/boost/fav.
But you can copypaste the URL into your local Mastodon server's "Search" field, then it allows you to interact!
Wasn't obvious to me, so maybe boost this if it helped you. :)

I wrote a "small" blog post about me going over to mostly open source and encrypted messaging and mail services, using VPN, and that I recommend others to do the same, as well :) Perhaps I'm getting viewed as paranoid, but the more I read about online comms, the more I feel good about these choices. :)
