Migrating a Mastodon server to Masto.host is a manual process, so a day/time must be planned in advance.
If you can provide access to the current installation, we might be able to migrate the data, but you will still need to change the domain DNS.

/public/systemdirectory (media and cached files are required), or if you're using Object Storage, only the object storage access information is necessary.

pg_dump -Fc mastodon_production -f backup.dump.
We can schedule during work days/hours (UTC timezone). If that is not possible, we can arrange a different time. Please email email@example.com to schedule.
