Friendica Administration

Most of the administrative work–basic settings, user management etc.–of a Friendica node is done in the Admin Panel (example.com/admin) of the node. Some of the administrative features, mostly new ones, have not made it into the panel yet, but they are available with the command line interface of Friendica, which is provided by bin/console.

See the [[docs:tools|Admin Tools]] page for a list of tools that are shipped with Friendica and some useful 3rd party tools.

Bad things will happen to your server. Sooner or later.

Therefore you should have a backup strategy. To easy the planing of such a strategy, here is a list of files you need to restore your Friendica node.

  • Configuration files: config/local.config.php and the .htaccess file if it was edited beyond the .htaccess-dist one.
  • A dump of the used database.
  • If the file storage backend is set to Filesystem, a copy of the root filesystem folder.
