What's the best way to erase a deactivated instance's data after running tootctl self-destruct, in terms of keeping things clean on the server?

@katja are you running it in docker or not in docker?

@katja if it's docker, delete the images and the folders you write the postgres images to, if it's not docker... remove the folders under the mastodon user, remove the nginx configuration, and run dropdb in postgres to drop the database

@katja if you don't have anything else running on that server or if it's a vm I'd just erase the entire thing and spin up a new one to start fresh tbh!

@catgoat I've got… nothing of substance, yeah.

Yeah! Might as well nuke this installation, then!
