debug logfile

@Friendica Support
Hi there,
still struggeling with the correct installation. Till now diaspora federation doesn't work. At least https is forced by default and with the stratssl cert a valid cert is in place.

Just asked the provider for the correct directory for the log file to see debug results. So now the provider asked me where the log file is located, if it's a friendica particular log file or the standard error files that the shared host uses?

/logs/tupambae.net-error.log is the apache error log, I don't know where friendica logs it's errors, can't you see in some config file or database?

What would be the correct location of the log file. What is the file name i'm looking for?

Friendica-specific logging can be enabled by:
* creating an empty file in your site's directory (example: /var/www/sitename/friendica.log)
* make the log file writable by the web server's user.
* go into the admin panel of your site (example: https://sitename/admin/logs/)
* click 'enable logging'
* enter the name of the file you created
* choose a log level
* click save.

Hey! it works!
I located the file where friendica is located, no problem. Have i missed some DIY on this? Shouldn't friendica ship this log file and the standard reference by default?

These are the debug file lines

Strict transport security (HSTS)

@Friendica Support Just a heads up, I notice that curl requests are not redirected by the Strict-Transport-Security header. If you want to ensure that directory scrapes/probes and Friendica server-to-server connections are all forced to HTTPS, please make sure to send a 301 redirect to your HTTPS connections.

I will try to fix redirect issues as much as possible in the directory, but please keep this one in mind as server admins.

So to be sure, you're using the forced HTTPS links feature from Friendica on your origin server, got a redirect on you proxy server to force HTTPS there and that works like a charm.
Beanow 1 month ago (2015-01-25 18:34:02)
Friendica
In Friendica I do not use the "Force SSL" setting, but the SSL rule setting above to make all links https. The redirect on the reverse proxy takes care that noone lands on a normal http://friendica... link

There is a German user forum, but it is not really used for support questions.

Personally I dont mind reading here languages I dont speak. If the keywords are interesting enough I might pipe it through google translate to see if I may help. I'll just ignore the rest.
Tobias 1 month ago (2015-01-24 12:33:06) from open socialverse
Friendica
Though I really only speak English, I do not think it is reasonable to expect every language to create its own support forum. What if, for example, someone is the first admin from a particular language?

If the poster speaks multiple languages, it might be better to include other languages in the original post. That way, more people can read the post and potentially help solve whatever the problem is. And just as important, more people may remember the post and the solutions when a similar issue crops up elsewhere.

Also, as @Tobias said, if the topic looks interesting enough, I'll copy-paste into Google translate.


So, in summary, I think you should use whatever language you speak. If you can speak English or German / Deutsch also, add a translation in those languages, so more people can read your post.

Friendica, OAuth and Java part II

@Friendica Support
Hi, I'm still learing to use OAuth in a java client to log in to a Friendica server. I hope you can tell me if I understood everything right.

Normally using OAuth works the following way:
1. the (java-) client requests a request token from the server
2. after getting the request token the user is directed to the service provider (via browser) where he has to log in and to authorize the request
3. if authorization is correct the client receives a verifier from the server and uses this verifier to request an access token from the server
4. at last the client receives the access token from the server

What I'm missing in Friendica is step 2. I just request a request token from the server and with that I immediately request an access token.

Hallo zusammen
Ich plane meine Friendica Instanz bei Uberspace zu einer Subdomain meiner Homepage umzusiedeln. Sie würde weiterhin auf Uberspace gehostet, es ändert nur die Adresse.
Im Adminbereich gibt es eine Option dafür. Bevor ich diesen Schritt mache, wollte ich noch fragen, ob ich da sonst noch was beachten muss oder dies reibungslos gehen wird... ;)

Has anyone got jappix-mini working?

Hello @Friendica Support

I try to get the jappix-mini-plugin to work but it stays resistant :-/
I tried the jappix-bosh-server, I setup my own with prosody 0.9x on both http and https, ports are open (And my bosh is tested full working). And I also double checked my login-data of my xmpp-account. But I only get the "Please wait..." and after a loooong time there's just "Error".
What do I miss? Where should I check?
Any ideas?

As Alfred said the jappix-bosh obviously now only works with an jappix-account not with your former jabber-account (https://github.com/jappix/jappix/wiki/BoshServer). Except you find another open bosh-server.

Hallo Tobias,

ich habe heute einiges an meinen Servern umgebaut und bin dabei noch mal auf ein Piwik-Problem gestossen. Es funktioniert bei mir nicht. Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass Piwik den Tracking-Code geändert hat. In der piwik.php ist mir folgendes aufgefallen; auf Zeile 67 wird das Protokoll abgefragt (also https oder http)
<code>$b .= "<!-- Piwik --> <script type=\"text/javascript\"> var _paq = _paq || []; _paq.push(['trackPageView']); _paq.push(['enableLinkTracking']); (function() { var u=((\"https:\" == document.location.protocol) ? \"https\" : \"http\") + \"://".$baseurl."\"; _paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'piwik.php']); _paq.push(['setSiteId', ".$siteid."]); var d=document, g=d.createElement('script'), s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; g.type='text/javascript'; g.defer=true; g.async=true; g.src=u+'piwik.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s); })(); ... show more

Wenn eine URL mit // anfängt, wird das Protokoll verwendet, das grade auch zum aufrufen der Seite benutzt wird auf der der Code eingebunden ist. IIRC. Würde also JavaScript Zeit bei der Berechnung der Adresse sparen... Nur daran sollte es nicht liegen, wenn Piwik keine Zugriffe zählt, der alte Code berechnet ja auch nur die Adresse über den Vergleich des Protokolls.

Cannot Connect Contact on fresh installation

I lately setup my own friendica on my home server. After a fight with my apache to allow me using an own subdomain and after getting mod_rewrite to work only without ssl now I have a working page an admin an two users. One of them is actually writing this. Unfortunately I could connect Friendica support to my contacts but none of the two users on my own directory! I don't get it: When I send a fdrn_request to I receive a notification that it could not find ME in directory (don't know the exact terms as my page is in german). This happens with any of my three users vice versa. Is this a known problem?

re mixed contact weirdness, warnings that are more scary than informative, browsers seeing default certificate when there's multiple domains on same host, dependency on verification by servers run by unknown people, outdated bundles on phones everywhere, services blocking things without asking either the user or what's being blocked, etc, etc..
so much is broken

then people wonder why I say I can't open port 443 here

all i want to do is be able to encrypt a few things yet browsers won't let me do it without all that other hassle!

sure for me the focus is more on the public stuff but of course it would still be nice to be able to encrypt passwords and private posts!

btw its not a problem that can easily be fixed by Friendica or any other platform - its broken in the browsers!
Friendica btw does itself encrypt private posts sent between servers - those are encrypted even without ssl/tls (not public posts, just what needs it - the approach is sensible)

The issue is that last hop between the web server and the browser, and unfortunately at the br... show more

Friendica, OAuth and Java

@Friendica Support

Hi,

I'm writing a java based client for Friendica and I'm trying to login to the Friendica-Server via OAuth. So I transfer the following parameters via http POST with the following headers:
oauth_consumer_key, oauth_signature_method, oauth_signature, oauth_timestamp, oauth_nonce and oauth_callback

The response is OK but I always get the message "invalid consumer key" although I everything is set right.

Has anybody managed to get OAuth working with Java and Friendica?

Thanks, Thorsten

What's not working is to include the parameters in the OAuth 'Authorization' header.
When I use the HTTP-POST-method and include the parameters in the POST-body, everything works fine and I get my request token.

Edit: btw: PLAINTEXT is also working for signature method.

I just love the "insert web link" function, located on the bottom of the post.
You put in the link, and the function grabs a small snippet? of the external page and appends it to the post!

Hi everyone, I can not seem to get the jappix mini plugin to work. I have the little chat box in the corner of the screen, but it says error. I've tried a few different servers. To add insult to injury, when I click on the chatbox, it directs me to the Jappix site, where it says it's so easy to install that even a grandma could do it.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a working jappix config with my own apache and ejabberd server.

Jappix mini admin config:
Activate BOSH proxy "check"

Adress of the default BOSH proxy. "my/http-bind"

Adress of the default jabber server: "your.jabber.server"
Set the default username to the nicknamwe: uncheck

Jappix mini user settings:
Addon activate "check"
Put Jappix Mini Chat Widget not to Webinterface "uncheck"
Jabber User "username"
Jabber Server "server.name"
Japper Passwort "password"


Hope it helps.

SEO resources

Sorry for the double entry.
the other post was from the test domain, which is now down.

I believe on the test site I had, I really didn't see any SEO info like the meta tags,
are there other ways that SEO is implemented with friendica?

and I see no reason why these other meta tags should be put in, and populated via the "admin settings" area, since ultimately we do want to promote friendica as much as possible, right?

I think setting the description and keywords as an admin only makes sense if you want to use your Friendica installation as a single user installation, instead of a social network. If you have 100 users, how will the admin know correct keywords for their users content?

Friendica with Frost-Mobile Theme on Fennec (mobile Firefox) has become a nightmare

There are huge issues with fennec using the javascript for frost-mobile.
I wrote about this before but this time it looks clear for me that this is a fennec issue.

The browser goes nuts; if you load the networkpage the scrollbar on the right looks like on crack like jumpin around up and down... also the scrollbar goes crazy, if you want to post something, and the whole page/browser hangs.

Solution: Use Tint browser (i recommend to download it from f-droid).

change default index.php file to friendica.php? or friendica url?

Hello all.
I'm more of a systems guy, than a php developer.
I'm not to sure where to start.
I have the main landing app as wordpress, and that's index.php

I want people to goto wordpress first.
so that means, logically I'd have to put friendica in a subdirectory

/social/

BUT, if I do that, then the user url is: USERNAME@DOMAIN.COM/social
I don't want that, I just want USERNAME@DOMAIN.COM/


sooo can I change the username URL, or can I change the default root php file from index.php to friendica.php, and have friendica installed in root alongside wordpress?

I just don't know the best way at doing this...

I think one could play with the files in .well-known in the base directory and assign that somehow to the /friendica/.well-known functionality. But I assume using a short subdomain, say f.example.com, would be much easier.

Also federation with red, Diaspora and GNUsocial will suffer big if you use friendica in a subdirectory.

best option is a subdomain.

Share-it button for Friendica?

How to set-up a “Share it” button for Friendica? Many web-pages have buttons so the viewer can easily share the URL of the page with his/her friends. If you have a look at the bottom of The SOS Card Project homepage, you will find the buttons for a number of social media websites (F*ceb**k, P*ntr*st, ...) to easily share the website URL. What is the corresponding code for Friendica? I couldn’t find it!

The problem with a static link like that is that it would only be built for exactly one server. The Diaspora solution is more flexible - I only have to see how it is working.

The login page theme is defined by the admin, because when you see it you aren't logged in (you don't say?!) so the system don't knows you.
The site admin can define the system mobile theme under admin/site, "Mobile system theme"

Hallo zusammen. Gestern habe Friendica erfolgreich daheim auf meinem Desktop-Rechner installiert. Nur kann ich mich leider nicht registrieren, da kein Mailserver vorhanden ist.

Alternativ habe ich sSMTP installiert, womit ich zumindest aus der Kommandozeile auch Mails verschicken kann. Leider nutzt Friendica dies aber nicht bzw. es funktioniert nicht.

Meine Friendicainstallation soll nur als lokale Testversion dienen, um damit ein wenig herumzuspielen. Mir würde also ein einfacher Testuser ausreichen.

Gibt es noch andere Möglichkeiten, einen User in Friendica anzulegen, bei der die Mailfunktionalität nicht benötigt wird? Ich möchte ungern noch einen kompletten Mailserver bei mir dafür installieren.
