When I post the Mastodon Self-hosting – Clean Media Storage with tootctl command, I forget to record how I prepare the environment.

Before I run the tootctl command, I did the following.

sudo su - mastodon
echo "export RAILS_ENV=production" >> ~/.bashrc

I checked the version of tootctl.

mastodon@instance-20230911-1538:~/live/bin$ ./tootctl --version

I saw someone using the bash file with the configuration.

Look at the media usage today.
