Mastadon Instances

Hi,

I am looking for any expertise in hosting, installing and getting a Mastadon instance setup. Who has this expertise in your coop?

Thanks

Hey @Avi, Autonomic runs mastodon/hometown instances and is keen to expand / work with others to run more / do more co-operative hosting. We co-run a project called Co-op Cloud which has configurations for setting up new instances:

Down to chat! DM here or mail to helo [at] autonomic [dot] zone will do fine :smiley:

If any other co-ops are looking to join forces on masto hosting, would also be down to chat!

We would be interested in co-operating on this, I started writing a Mastodon Ansible role the other day and have set up a development server, but haven’t had much of a chance to play with it yet.

Our plan being to offer it as a free service to our members on mastodon.coop and to start offering Mastodon hosting as a service at some point in the future.

We too would be happy to work on this.

Drop us a line if you’d like to chat about getting an instance setup :blush:

I once set up Mastodon and I think some bits of my issue about problems in the install docs are still relevant, almost 2 years later :slight_smile: Build instructions seem out of order in https://docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/install/ · Issue #857 · mastodon/documentation · GitHub Not volunteering, but will be watching efforts closely!
