Is it possible to run a #mastodon single user instance on an Oracle Cloud Free Tier machine with 1v CPU and 1GB RAM? #libreops

@returntrip it is possible to run single user with 1GB ram. If be concerned about disk space, and I'd consider something other than mastodon, but ...

@ajroach42 @returntrip Single-user (I'd gladly accept others, but nobody has taken me up on it, hah) is working fine for me with Pleroma with the lowest tier Digital Ocean option, as another data point. Currently at just 2.3GB used including the Ubuntu Server install, since I'm not mirroring external media.
