Quarantine with Disroot


Are you bored yet?

Since lots of you (us included) are locked in their houses trying to avoid contact with other human beings, we thought it would be nice to spend this time socializing in front of computer with bunch of strangers you know so well from chats, social federated networks and whom you most probably never seen in real life.

Let's spend an evening drinking booze, eating junk, and shooting one another on Teeworlds. The first edition of Quarantine with Disroot starts on Saturday 21.03.2020 20:00 CET and will go on until last one standing. Server will probably stay on for the whole week or two if there are people willing to play.

Let's kick some CoVID butt.Image/photo

Quick guide:
1. To get you started, install Tweeworlds either using your package manager if you are using a proper operating system like linux/bsd or go to teeworlds website and download it for your platform.
2. Once you're done with that, start the game.
3. Fisrt select "Setup" to add your players name, choose and customize your Tee is you like.
4. Hit play and find "Quarantine with Disroot" and join us.

The game is rather straight forward and easy to learn, and since probably we are all noobs, no worries we will equally suck at it :)

Afghanistan: as armed Taliban forces patrol Kabul, some residents return to work

Some Kabul residents on Tuesday cautiously ventured back to work through quiet streets, fearful after a night broken by the sound of gunfire and facing questions from their new Taliban rulers who have set up checkpoints across Afghanistan’s capital.The Islamist Taliban, who stopped women from working and administered punishments including public stoning during their previous 1996-2001 rule, swept the country in days as US-backed government forces melted away. By Sunday evening, the Taliban had…


New Webmail


Dear Disrooters:

Starting from June 8th, we are going to replace the current webmail (powered by Rainloop) with a brand new toy powered by Roundcube.

For the last 4 years we have been using Rainloop for our webmail experience. But due to some missing features and a need to improve the platform's integration, we have decided to re-introduce a webmail environment built on Roundcube.

Roundcube has been widely used for the last 10 years and it provides the modern, fast, simple and reliable solution one could expect. Here are some feature highlights:
  • A nice responsive Disroot flavored skin (and dark mode)
  • Better filter support
  • Email and mailbox archiving
  • Custom themes
  • The interface is translated in more than 80 languages.
  • Drag-&-drop message management: move your messages with your mouse.
  • Full support for MIME and HTML messages.
  • Attachment previews: see the images directly within your messages.
  • Threaded message listing: Display conversations in a threaded mode.
  • Folders: Manage your folders (add, remove, or hide).
  • Two factor authentication: add a second level of authentication to your account log-in.
And many more...

In the near future we are planning to integrate it with mailbox encryption as well as Nextcloud (calendars, contacts and attachments) and other services currently provided by Disroot. We think Roundcube will enable us to further improve your email experience.

We hope you'll like the new looks and new features. We sure are looking forward to this switch and future improvements.

!! Warning for 2FA users!!

For those of you that have 2FA enabled on the current webmail, you will have to re-set it up again once the new webmail is up and running. Sorry for the inconvenience!

this is very beautiful. Thank you very much.

Upgrade error

!Friendica Support

I tried upgrading my Friendica from 2020.03 to 2021.01

I erase all files.

I then uploaded the new version.

I then used the following file from the old version: config and addon config as well as the .htaccess files.

Once i did this and looked at the website again, I got the following errors:

PHP Warning: require_once(/var/www/clients/client1/web12/web/vendor/composer/autoload_real.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/clients/client1/web12/web/vendor/autoload.php on line 5
PHP Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/var/www/clients/client1/web12/web/vendor/composer/autoload_real.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php') in /var/www/clients/client1/web12/web/vendor/autoload.php on line 5

Any clues as to what this error is from?

I installed my back up for now so that I could write this message.


Joseph Hogan friendica (via ActivityPub)

I am not a programmer.

I am an end user who just wants to run Friendica.

I am not looking to erase history, just have a streamlined less bulky code.

If all these extra comments automatically come with the code, than I will need to add them to my site.

I thought that the comments and history would be for the programmers, and not be needed/included in the released version.

Michael Vogel friendica (via ActivityPub)
The advantage of the git repository is that you keep updated with really little effort. AFAIK several admins are using this - without having the urge to code a single line.

Cannot remove empty categories

Hello Supporters,
on my Home-Status page there are two categories which I don't use anymore. How do I remove them?


/network causes memory use spike on server

Is it expected behaviour for the Friendica server to require over 700MiB to render a single page for a single user?

I'm seeing a lot of OOM-killer activity in my system logs, and it seems to coincide with me accessing /network on my remote browser. Memory usage briefly shoots from a resting 300MiB to 1GiB (the server's RAM limit), then httpd is oom-killed.

I'm running on a Linode server with Arch linux, latest Apache 2.4.46-3 with mpm_prefork_module and php 7.4.16-1.
mark friendica (via ActivityPub)
I ran mysql_upgrade, and it seems that the memory spikes have gone. I had forgotten about a mariadb update, it seems. Thanks very much for your help, @utzer , and @Michael Vogel , I look forward to the next release.
utzer friendica (via ActivityPub)
@mark lets see if that really helped, but it was one thing I did and I think it improved here too.
You're welcome.

Best upgrade path?

@Friendica Support

HI you all. I've been busy lately, so not much activity lately. But, I am back on line a little more now and again.

I am currently on v2020.03

I have been unable to upgrade due to a few server constraints. These will be resolved i the next 2- 3 weeks.

Being that my version is 3 versions old, what is the best way to upgrade? Do I upgrade one version at a time? 2020.06, then 2020. 09 and then 2020.012?

Or, can I just upgrade directly you 2020.12?

A well, I will be switching to Maria DB from MySQL. Will this have any impact?


Hypolite Petovan friendica (via ActivityPub)
Latest release note say "If you are updating from an older version than the 2020.03 release, please first update your Friendica instance to that version." so you're good, you can upgrade directly to the last release.

As for the MariaDB switch, it is transparent for Friendica, nothing to change.
Joseph Hogan friendica (via ActivityPub)
@Friendica Support @Hypolite Petovan @Pierre Bernardeau @Michael Vogel @silverwizard

Thanks for the feedback.

I did see the notes. But, I just wanted to make sure that you might have heard of some hiccups for others making a similar 3 version jump.

Once i get there, I'll get back at you with feedback.


Hello everyone,
excited to use this software. Just have a few questions.
How do I enable invite only registration? I've read the docs, my config file is missing a line for invitations.
Hypolite Petovan friendica (via ActivityPub)
The config key is system.invitation_only. Most config keys have to be added manually to your own local config file but you can get an exhaustive list of all the config keys in static/defaults.config.php.

Hi !

I'm the administrator of my node. For a test I have changed my e-mail address. Then I've seen that I couldn't go to the admin menu. I would change my address back to the admin but I can't. Is that a bug ? Can I try to change it in database directly ?
Stanislav N. aka pztrn friendica (via ActivityPub)
@Pierre Bernardeau You can try change in database or in configuration file (and change via web UI later).
Steffen K9 🐰 friendica (via ActivityPub)
Not a bug. A security feature!

Configure a different admin email address in your .../config/local.config.php file. Be careful who's email you put there. Then you can change your user's email back to the old/right email address. And then you can change the address in the config file back to the right address.

Friendica extremely slow since update to 2020.09 and 2020.09.1

At the beginning of this week I updated to 2020.09, and since then Friendica has run very slowly. When I reboot the VPS, it runs very fast for a short while, and then gets bogged down again. I use Plesk to monitor the VPS, which is only running Friendica, and almost the entire 4 GiB of memory is constantly in use. I can also see that the "Apache & PFP-FPM" memory usage is at 792 MiB, which I believe is high.

However, I cannot figure out why this is occurring and see no apparent errors in the logs. But also because I have had no errors in the 6 months I've been running Friendica, I don't know exactly what is "normal." Any assistance troubleshooting this would be greatly appreciated.
Just to report back. Since the update to 2021.01 I don't have to restart php constantly any more. #Friendica is faster and makes more fun than ever.

Thanks to all the developers and contributors.
hoergen friendica (via ActivityPub)
@Matt Panhans There was a big database structure update and a lot people reported while the task was running, that friendica was very slow. It can happend, that this task is running for a long time. Just let it run and see in the support forum for the threads about it.

remote_self and the twitter connector

Do they play along nicely at the moment?

For the Friendica news / blog, the distribution chain is currently

  • Write a posting to the blog
  • will collect the Atom feed and publish it for @Friendica News
  • and the twitter connector will publish a teaser to the news account there

however the very last step seems not to be working at the moment. @Steffen K9 🐰 had to post the teaser manually.

Blocken: Melden? Wie?

!Friendica Support
Anlässlich einer Häufung von Registrierungen, die ein Troll momentan auf Diaspora vornimmt, um damit andere User anzugreifen, frage ich mich, wie effektives Blocken bei Friendica funktioniert.

Ich meine hier bewusst nicht das userseitige Blocken, welches jeder selbst durchführen kann. Das habe ich verstanden, praktiziere es und es scheint für mich auch ausreichend gut zu funktionieren.

Meine Frage zielt ein oder zwei Ebenen höher: Gibt es ein standardisiertes Verfahren, einen User (oder eine ganze Instanz) zu melden, so dass dieser instanzweit oder gar netzwerkweit geblockt wird?

Ich gehe davon aus, dass jeder Betreiber einer Instanz für sich entscheidet, ob und wen er blockt und es keinen netzwerkweiten Automatismus gibt. Und mir ist bewusst, dass hier eine missbräuliche Nutzung eine massive Gefahr für die Federation ist, also ist Vorsicht geboten.

Aber trotzdem braucht man wohl auch effektive Schutzmechanismen, die nach meinem Verständnis mindestens instanzbasiert ansetzen müssten.

Daher meine Fragen:
1. Was tut ein einfacher User, wenn er glaubt, einen Account oder Instanz entdeckt zu haben, der sich illegitim verhält und seiner Meinung nach(!) geblockt werden sollte? Dem Instanzbetreiber melden - wenn ja, auf welchem Weg?
2. Gibt es eine Abstimmung zwischen den Instanzbetreibern hinsichtlich von Blocklisten?

Paula Gentle on Friendica friendica (via ActivityPub)
@MasterTux 🐧 ✅
Noch eine Frage an @Paula Gehrke on Friendica :
Wie könnte denn deiner Meinung nach so ein "standardisiertes Verfahren" aussehen?
Bin nicht tief genug in der Thematik drin, um hierzu eine durchdachte Meinung zu haben. Daher stelle ich ja diese Fragen.
Andere sind da ja schon viel weiter, wie man hier sieht.

Aber ich habe den Eindruck, dass Mastodon das GAB-Problem ganz gut in den Griff bekommen hat. Vielleicht sollte man da mal genauer nach deren Lösung schauen...

Dem bisher gesagten entnehme ich zusammenfassend, dass es bislang keinen standardisierten Weg für Friendica gibt - und föderationsübergreifend schon mal gar nicht.

Bleibt nur, dem jeweiligen Instanzbetreiber und/oder meinem eigenen eine PN zu schicken - falls der/die das überhaupt so möchte.
utzer friendica (via ActivityPub)
@Paula Gehrke on Friendica ich würde ggf. noch das helpers oder Admins forum empfehlen, ich denke Admins ist besser. Die Admins, also auch ich, freuen uns über Hinweise, wir sind ja auch in unserer Blase und sehen so Accounts nicht unbedingt selber.

Photo permissions don't work [solved]

Hi folks!
I am using friendica version 2020.09-01 and I wonder if this issue is known by anyone else:
uploading or editing a photo and setting
- "public" permission works fine :)
- "Limited/Private" permission doesn't work with "Show to:" for persons or groups. The person or the one of the related group has no access to the photo. One can read posts with the same permission restrictions, but doesn't see the photos :(

Any ideas?
Michael Vogel friendica (via ActivityPub)
Are all persons from Friendica or are they using different systems as well?
Thanks for your reply :)
All persons use Friendica and are registered on the same server instance (
According to the table 'group_member' should have a 'uid' field. Mine hasn't :(
> show columns from group_member;
| Field      | Type             | Null | Key | Default | Extra          |
| id         | int(10) unsigned | NO   | PRI | NULL    | auto_increment |
| gid        | int(10) unsigned | NO   | MUL | 0       |                |
| contact-id | int(10) unsigned | NO   | MUL | 0       |                |
3 rows in set (0.002 sec)

May this be an outdated database structure?
Michael Vogel friendica (via ActivityPub)
The documentation is outdated. But you can always call bin/console dbstructure update -fto check the table structure against the definition.
Hm, bin/console dbstructure update -f runs without any response.
Creating and editing groups works fine. But what is confusing me is this mysql respond:
> desc group;
ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near 'group' at line 1

This happens with some other tables also :(
Michael Vogel friendica (via ActivityPub)
So the update hadn't found anything. This is fine. The error above just happens because "group" is a reserved word. You need to encapsulate it with a backtick.
Ah, I single and double quoted group which didn't work either, but > desc `group`; outputs the data correctly :) Thank you so much!
So I will have a closer look to the data to solve my initial issue ...
Michael Vogel friendica (via ActivityPub)
@Ingo van Lessen I'm most likely sure that the underlying problem is a ghost that we are hunting now for years. What you haven't said: Is the problem with private albums or with private posts with included pictures?
If I understood you right: both.
As soon as I change the permission of a photo from "Public" to "Limited/Private" nobody has access to it and can't see it in posts nor in "Photos" except the owner, no matter who's listed in "Show to:".
You mentioned "private albums". I just had a closer look and was not able to set album permissions ("Vier" theme). I only have the permission option for single pictures.

Hope it helps ...
The problem seems to be solved since the update from 2020.09-01 to 2021.01 has been successfully installed :) Thank you so much!
