Wow, Hubzilla is complicated and unfriendly.
Have they ticked the checkbox(es) where they accept the TOS and/or state that they over the required age? One of my users had similar problems until he noticed his mistake.
Wondering how software could be unfriendly
HAL: The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.
Is there possibly some interaction between "this is not a public forum" setting and registration?
"I created invites for new accounts, sent them, and when one of the invited people tries to create an account, they just get returned to the login page."
when I try to create a "cold" registration, it does not propagate to /admin/accounts under "show all registrations."
Require invite code
Allow invite code
Sorry, but you are on the wrong side of the road . If php would be misconfigured on the server, nothing would function (no login, register, admin site etc) and because most functions interact with the DB, it is to assume also this may be well also.
My host did virtually all of the install, and I'm pretty sure that they had zero previous hubzilla experience.
I installed the addons that enabled ActivityPub. ... And I'm comfortable, more or less, at a bash or zsh prompt.
I can submit, but it never shows up in /admin/accounts and the moment I submit I'm returned to the login screen. Trying to use /login after that fails.
I can't say for absolutely sure, but these values in htconfig seem to be correct. when I do "which php" the answer matches the config.
In fact, this all started with me trying to use the Softalicious auto-installer for Hubzilla, but that errored out several times
Where does Hubzilla expect the file to be?
PHP logs show some problems:
But hey! got a 403 trying to edit a typo in the above!
Not sure if you can place it outside of the Hubzilla dir, though.
