Latest commit bf09a26 Aug 2, 2019


Fikaba is an imageboard engine forked from Futallaby aiming to be more standards-compatible, readable, usable, and generally an updated version of Futallaby, since Futallaby has become abandonware.

See here for info on migrating from Futallaby


Below are some examples of sites running Fikaba. If you are using Fikaba and want to be added to the list, please make a pull request or otherwise contact me to add your site to the list below.


  • Valid HTML5
  • Fairly advanced admin/moderator/janitor panel
  • Tripcodes, capcodes
  • Highly configurable
  • Post references
  • Oekaki
  • ...and more


This guide assumes you have a webserver with PHP (7.0 at least) already installed. Fikaba has only been tested on Apache, but should work on any server.

  1. Clone the files from this repository into a folder on your webserver and set the permissions of that folder to 777
  2. Edit/move config.example.php to config.php and edit it
  3. If you want to use oekaki, execute git submodule update --init --recursive.
  4. Navigate to imgboard.php in your browser
  5. Log in to the default admin account (password REPLACEME) and create a new account. The default one will be automatically removed
  6. Pour yourself some puerh and admire your professional adminship
