I’m listening to your podcastthanks for making it! :grinning:

Your English was almost perfect, IMHO.

Your Chapter 8 of the Podcast, mentions using a Raspberry Pi as an easy way to get started with a Mattermost install. This tutorial I wrote would be good instructions for installing the SmartHoneyBee unofficial Mattermost team server on a Raspberry Pi at present.

I was also glad to hear from Carlos that a Raspberry Pi (presumably a model 4B, say, 4 or 8GB of RAM) can handle 50-100 users. I’ve never taken my own Raspberry Pi 4 4gb that high yet in simultaneous users.

Had I asked a question in time for the podcast, it would have went like this:
For those who want to try a Mattermost Team Server docker install on a Raspberry Pi model4B, 8GB (which has plenty of RAM for docker), running Ubuntu 64bit 20.04, how can they opt to install with a docker image for Postgresql (which does exist for ARM 64), instead of the default Mysql (for which there is no docker image for ARM 64)?

By obtaining a satisfactory answer to this question, one can then avoid the unofficial SmartHoneyBee build (which avoids docker altogether, allowing the use of a database other than Mysql easily on an RPi4, such as MariaDB)

Dear @benhartwich, I would humbly request that you interview the current build maintainer of Mattermost, named @hmhealey Harrison Healey, in an upcoming episode of your podcast.

Thanks - I think we can do in a few episodes to new feature etc. Just get in touch.
