To make a register user an admin, use the Web terminal and run the following command:
# sudo -u www-data php artisan user:admin username_here Found username: girish Add admin privileges to this user? (yes/no) [no]: > yes Successfully changed permissions!
Further administration commands like removing a user, removing unused media can be found in Pixelfed docs.
To test if federation works, search for a handle like
firstname.lastname@example.org. You should then
be able to follow that handle. Note that you can only see posts that are made after you followed
the handle. Existing posts will not appear in you stream.
If following doesn't work:
- Login as an admin user on your Pixelfed instance
https://pixelfed.domain.com/horizon/failedfor job failures
You can find the configuration file (env.production) under
/app/data. Don`t forget to restart the app
after making any changes to this file.
