We're gonna attempt migrating uwu.social mastodon media again from minio to local storage over NFS again today. Our battle plan is as follows:
1. origin.files.uwu.social nginx block will be changed to serve from local first, then try minio if 404 2. delete all remote media older than 7 days again to reduce the amount of stuff we have to copy 3. switch mastodon to use local storage rather than S3 storage (requires small downtime) 4. migrate data from minio to the local directory in the background over the next few weeks
We've already done 1 and started 2, once that finishes we'll start 3 and eventually start 4 in the background
I think the only downside this method has is that deleted media from the 7 day period before we turn on local storage won't be able to be deleted until the files are finished moving over
We've tested switching to local storage by changing the .env on a testing server and it seemed to work without issue
A public Mastodon instance run by the same people who run owo (the file sharing website).
