How to backup data from old version of Mastodon Instance?

While I asked how to upgrade my Mastodon instance which is still on Version 3.1.3 ( basically received no viable solution. I am now looking to back up my data and blast it so I can recreate a new instance using the most current droplet Digital Ocean has available. Is there a way to back up all user data in order to restore it to my new instance? Or, does anyone have any reason why all suggestions are not upgrading my instance to version 4.0.2? I created a 4 GB swap file before launching the upgrade. When I go through the steps one by one, they all seem to install fine. But when I reload my instance it is still on 3.1.3. Any help would be appreciated.
