For those who like the idea of Lemmy but think that the and are too unfriendly try According to Beehaw they are 'aspiring to be(e) a safe, friendly and diverse place'. That's the beauty of the Fediverse if you don't like a server (anymore) you can move to a better one.

September update on our small bio diverse garden. The beginning of the autumn. Already less flowers and less insects visible. I have to find a better place for the insect hotel (not visible on image). I'm beginning to think that the medlar is dead.

Does anyone have any experience with self-hosting on a VPS?

Particularly interested in backup strategies and restore!
