Register a new domain and add it to YunoHost

Hubzilla requires a dedicated domain, so obtain one and add it using the YunoHost admin panel. Domains -> Add domain. As Hubzilla uses the full domain and is installed on the root, you can create a subdomain such as hubzilla.domain.tld. Don't forget to update your DNS if you manage them manually.

YunoHost >= 2.5 :

Once the dedicated domain has been added to YunoHost, go again to the admin panel, go to domains then select your domain and click on "Install Let's Encrypt certificate".

Install the Hubzilla application

Use the YunoHost admin panel to install Hubzilla by entering the GitHub repo address in the custom app URL

Make sure to select your domain from the previous section as the application domain.

When installation is complete, you will need to visit your new hub's page and login with the admin account which was entered at the time of installation process. You should then be able to create your first channel and have the admin rights for the hub.

For normal YunoHost users: Normal LDAP users can login through Ldap authentication and create there channels.

If the admin cannot access the admin settings: If you cannot access the admin settings at when you log in as the administrator, or you want to grant admin rights to any other user(s) on the hub, then you have to manually add 4096 to the account_roles under accounts for that user in the database through phpMYAdmin.

For logs:: Go to admin->logs and enter the file name php.log.
