High Tea: Gitea with Traefik

In the spirit of transparency I’d like to share my first hiccup with High Tea. When attempting to run my 5th Gitea backup today I found out my 25GB Vultr VPS was out of disk space. As a result, I’ve added information on how to reclaim disk space with Docker for the benefit of others here:

Additionally, here are some other resources I’ve written here which those using this Gitea with Docker will find useful as they begin self-hosting:

Here are the sizes of my back-ups, which I’m simply going to offload to another server as they’re unnecessary on the gitea production vps I use to run git.habd.as:

-rw------- 1 user docker 252M Jul 16 07:22 gitea-dump-1531725738.zip
-rw------- 1 user docker 1.2G Sep 24 08:41 gitea-dump-1537778440.zip
-rw------- 1 user docker 2.6G Oct 12 08:19 gitea-dump-1539332248.zip
-rw------- 1 user docker 2.8G Oct 17 12:02 gitea-dump-1539777559.zip

Total repository count is 56 at current, many of which are mirrors of kewl security software I found on GH.
