It's surprising (or not...) how must faster your Mastodon instance is when you do a cached media purge, and fix your rsync script to actually exclude + delete nonexistent files, instead of keeping the backup directory and live directory in sync (even in the wrong direction) πŸ˜‚


I mean to be fair - I'm not an experienced server admin, webdev, nor do I have rsync experience.

But also, it was a real dumbass move :p

As a new user who was having trouble logging in and seeing my feed, and also who knows very very little about the technical side of things, I appreciate your hard work! πŸ‘

@ArquusMalvaceae I'm sorry it wasn't working at first! All should be golden now πŸ™ƒ

It's alright! Just took me back to good old Fandom Wank days πŸ˜†
