I posted a little while ago that I was having trouble installing pict-rs. (Using Linode VPS with Yunohost install of Lemmy). I kept trying to figure things out and now it has all shit the bed. Is there anyone here that would take a small $40 payment to just get it up and running fully for me? (Hoping the database can still be saved, but if it can’t not the worst.) #frustrated If $40 isn’t enough let me know what’s fair.

I started with the yunohost install as well but decided to migrate to the officially supported docker install when I had issues with upgrades or had to wait for the ynh package to catch up. Although I don’t want to take your money and bear the responsability of handling the migration, I could give you some pointers.

  • Use the official backup and restore documentation as an inspiration
  • Use the -W option with postgres commands so that you get prompted for the password
  • Don’t use pg_dumpall but pg_dump instead and select the lemmy db
  • First migrate to the same version on docker
  • Make sure everything is working fine
  • Then proceed to upgrading to latest (depending on which version you come from maybe it would be safer to use intermediate releases)

That’s from the top of my head but I had to try a few times before getting it right.


Thanks. I think that is probably what I will end up doing.
