Just set up a personal mastodon instance!

It’s live at mas.cri.dev.

Followed this guide for setting it up on Linode.

Gotta use my credits somehow, right?

Hardened the server with disabled root login, only key authentication, ufw enabled.

Migrated my previous accounts on mastodon.uno and fosstodon.org to redirect to mas.cri.dev/@cri

The process was also super simple:

  • create an alias on the new instance mas.cri.dev
  • set up a redirect on the other instances (individually)

Curious to see how it lives up to my expectations and if future upgrades of the instances will by a PITA or not!
