so to recap! we ran out of disk space. and for some reason DO lets you double the diskspace from 25gb to 50gbs for free. so I did that and then was confused that you have to enlarge the partition manually before it can actually use the disk space.
shoutout to @stemid for figuring out what was wrong with the cert issue that @palomakop noticed and pinged me about. @stemid walked me through the whole process and explained everything step by step. thanks so much!
I gave a tour of the fediverse to some anarchist friends the last night and they seemed very excited to get to play around on here and I told them I would give them an invite to this instance. I hope they join and we make this place a bit more lively
