    Looking at the resource usage of mine, a tiny cheap VPS for $4/mo would be enough, sans the image store. But it’s not a hard requirement unless you expect to have lots of local communities posting pictures.

    Lemmy’s issue is that it’s non-trivial to deploy and oftentimes painful to upgrade.

      Doesn’t lemmy sync posts, comments, and pictures with other instances? I remember after a CP attack some instances manually turned it off in the code to avoid troubles, and also had to clear their storage.

        It absolutely does. Think of lemmy like of email – your mail server has all the email you received.

      Not including the time cost to manage it.
