is there some kind of quick-reference document for good things to do periodically when maintaining a mastodon server? things i should keep in mind if i want to kick the server for system updates or the like?

i want to make sure that i don’t mess up the server too much due to inaction >_>;;

@QuietMisdreavus I don't know if the standard maso setup includes it, but **log rotation** is always overlooked when you admin your 1st server


@esbe ooh, that's a good one! is there a log that masto prints to other than the systemd one? otherwise i'll just check out systemd log rotation things

@QuietMisdreavus I don't know masto's exact stack, but rails will generate its own logs, and there's probably a reverse proxy like nginx generating both an access log and an error log too
