Mastodon server on ISPConfig 3

Discussion in 'General' started by Wade John Beckett, Feb 16, 2022.

  1. Hi there,
    I trust you are well.

    Is it possible to install federated apps like:
    • Mastodon,
    • Jitsi,
    • PeerTube
    into the vhosts created by ISPConfig 3?

    It might be possible, though I haven't done so myself.

    it may be possible, but i'm not sure it would make the most sense.

    mastodon maybe, although the standard instructions say to use docker, it can be installed from source. but even then it want's postgres.
    do you really want to run both postgres and mysql? especially since postgres won't be managed by ispconfig.
    two different database servers are going to use up a lot of ram, would have to be a decently sized server, but i don't see any other major stumbling blocks / concerns

    jitsi and peertube, not even bothering to look at the install requirements for them, one is a youtube clone using peer-to-peer to stream/torrent both your own locally hosted videos, and other peertube videos, the other is a video-conferencing app.

    ispconfig is generally used for mass shared hosting, although i guess some places will use it for easily managing just a couple of their own websites. for shared hosting services, you want to keep your available bandwidth for serving up websites as quickly as possible, the last thing you would want is large video streams taking up your bandwidth.
    i feel, and it's purely a personal opinion, that these types of sites/services would be best run on their own dedicated server / vps.
