You can get latest configurations and files from official Mastodon repository on GitHub where you can find

There are optional configurations such as memory over-commit for Redis. When the Redis is up, run
docker cp my_mastodon_container:/etc/sysctl.conf sysctl.conf, this will create a Linux
systemctl config file based on Redis image, then prepend
vm.overcommit_memory=1 to the file and map from the
