Hi guys, I’ve been trying to get Penpot up and running on my Server but I just can’t get through the Activation part. Can someone explain where that “disable-registration” flag is supposed to be placed at exactly? I’ve replaced it with “enable registration” at the config.env file.
Could you please detail whats your problem exactly?, what doc are you following to install penpot?.
disable-registration should be a flag included as part of the environment variable PENPOT_FLAGS. By default registry is enabled, adding enable-registration will have no effect
Hi Alex, thanks for the reply! I’ve just followed the steps on Penpot’s website, but after running the “docker exec -ti penpot-penpot-backend-1 ./manage.sh create-profile” I still can’t login with the credentials created. Any tips on what I might be missing here?
I have the exact same question.
The flags are actually set in
config.env file. If you change
disable-registration, then nobody will be able to create new accounts in your instance with the "create account " link in the login screen.
You need to manually add users with the
manage.sh create-profile command, as explained in the technical guide, or to provide an external authentication profile.
create-profile command you set the email and password of the user. You should be able to login with these credentials after going to http://localhost:9001. If not, there may be a problem in your server.
Please check if all the docker images are up. For example with
docker ps you should see five containers:
$ docker ps

And you can also check the developer tools in your browser. Press F12 key and check the Console and Network tabs, to see if you have any error message.
