I’ve set up my mastodon instance, but every single time I open the console the wizard restarts and often messes up my already existing work. how can I disable it?

Hello @0rnella

The set-up wizard should not be triggered once the installation has been completed. Have you finished the process at first place when the droplet was created with the initial ssh login?

Hey @0rnella,

I’ve just created a Mastodon Droplet and didn’t encounter the problem. Do you finish the wizard everytime or do you stop it at somepoint?

Additionally, have you tried recreating the Droplet to see if the problem persists? It’s possible something got messed up at the beginning.

Let me know how it goes
