What do mastodon instances admins do when they have no experience with Ruby and Rails and Postgres and your update failes?

@xvilo Blindly tinker with things until they are back to a working state, usually. Sometimes open a Github ticket and then usually find out it was my own damn fault at some point afterwards.

Which kind of problem does your friend have in particular?

@xvilo Usually pop onto an alt account on another instance and ask Mastoadmin or other instance admins for help!

I didn't have enough experience to be confident while juggling a bunch of other priorities, so I went with MastoHost so I didn't have to worry about that stuff. ^^;

@xvilo cry and scream and use a bunch of hashtasgs on mastodon dot com to get help is what i do
