An update on the situation earlier today where the server was down due to the disk being full. I found the culprits, mostly media_attachments and statuses. Thankfully, mastodon has a cli program to remove the extra cruft.

tootctl media remove
tootctl statuses remove

The first command gets rid of media saved that is not from our local users. The second command removes fediverse toots from the server that have no local interaction.

I'll try to keep an eye on this stuff in the future.

The site experienced a few hours of downtime this morning. This was an unexpected event. Apparently, we filled up the disk on DigitalOcean. Oops?! I upgraded to a bigger disk and resized the primary partition. Hopefully, we didn't lose any data.
