The step called "post-installation" is actually the initial configuration of YunoHost. It has to be done just after the installation of the system itself.

From the web interface

You can perform the post-installation with the web interface by entering in your browser : * the local IP address of your server if it is on your local network (e.g. at home !). The address typically looks like 192.168.x.y (see 'Find your IP' on the page about SSH) * the public IP address of your server if your server is not on your local network. Typically, if you own a VPS, your VPS provider should have gave you the IP of the server.

During the first visit, you will very likely encounter a security warning related to the certificate used by the server. For now, your server uses a self-signed certificate. You will later be able to add a certificate automatically recognized by web browsers as described in the certificate documentation. For now, you should add a security exception to accept the current certificate.

You should then land on this page :

From the command line

You can also perform the postinstallation with the command yunohost tools postinstall directly on the server, or via SSH.

Informations asked

Main domain

This is the first domain name linked to your YunoHost server, but also the one which will be used by your server's users to access the authentication portal. It will thus be visible by everyone, choose it wisely.

Administration password

This password will be used to access to your server's administration interface. You would also use it to connect via SSH or SFTP. In general terms, this is your system's key, choose it carefully.


If you got so far and saw 'YunoHost has been successfully installed' (web postinstall) or 'YunoHost has been correctly configured', then congratulations!
