Updated to Mastodon v3.2.0 and it's slow AF. No clear errors, so I'm not exactly sure what happened (but I haven't looked too deep into it, either).

Got rid of two thirds of my database (removed statuses not interacted with and over 15 days old, _I think_) and that seems to have fixed it.

Or not. Tusky especially seems to take a while to load toots.

First request is crazy slow, takes like 10–15 seconds. Subsequent requests just fine. As if the VPS gets "spun down" during low-traffic periods or something. (No errors or nothing, and no obvious mistakes in, e.g., docker-compose.yml, like wrong version numbers or so. On the latest branch, ran all migrations, etc.)

Seems solved. Web was mostly okay, now Tusky (Nightly) is also giving me reasonable response times. Could be an app update, a generic package update, or something on my cloud provider's end.

Think we're good. Did another `git fetch --all` and `git checkout v3.2.0` and noticed I apparently wasn't on the latest revision. Ran `git status` and noticed a bunch of deleted files in `public/system` that I think shouldn't do anything, but okay. Changed ownership of `public` back to me (from `991`), ran `git stash push docker-compose.yml && git reset --hard v3.2.0 && git stash pop` (I think). Changed the directory owner back to `991` and finally ran `docker-compose up -d`.

I mean, more or less. Guessing the ownership thingy essentially prevented pulling the latest revision(s). (This is typical Docker, I'm afraid, and I'm not too sure how to deal with it. I could run `composer install` or `git pull` in a container of its own [i.e., as root], or simply use sudo, and then `chown` all the files, but that too requires care.)
