Our Mastodon instance is hosted in a server that provides regular backups and also the option to take snapshots any time.
I’m aware of the Mastodon Backups Guide but we wonder whether relying on these serves backups / snapshots is good enough?
For instance, we want to update our instance to the last version. Before that we want to backup the data, of course. Is it ok to just take a server snapshot, proceed with the update, and if anything goes wrong restore the snapshot?
