Dear !Friendica Support, I'm slowly setting up my #Friendica instance and I'd appreciate some hints.
Is there a way so when going to the my instance homepage recent public posts of instance members will be displayed along side the login form?
Also when trying to follow a contact entering its profile url is working fine but when entering email style address like helpers@forum.friendi.ca I am getting an empty page in the web browser.

Friendica Support reshared this.

Empty pages are either caused by some error on your server. Then you should have it in your PHP log file. Or sometimes such stuff happens with browser plugins like "noscript" or similar things.
In the server logs I can only see smarty warnings related to some variables not being initialized. Shal I post the log excerpt somewhere?
I don't mean the friendica log but the PHP log. This one you have to configure in your php.ini.
@Michael Vogel @Friendica Support Yes, I've checked PHP log and found file system permissions issue. Thanks for your patience with me. It's now solved.

Maybe a redirect to the community page in the .htaccess?
Thank you! Resolved as well.
By the way after joining !Friendica Support, I had to reconfigure pm.max_children within the php-fpm pool very high pm.max_children = 160 in order to get the fluent experience.
I am alone on my instance so far. Is this normal?

If I lower it down I am getting something like this in the logs and page loading is very slow with intermittent time outs and HTTP 502 errors.
```server reached max_children setting (40), consider raising it```
@JB Carroll @Friendica Support @mʕ•ﻌ•ʔm jesuiSatire bitPickup PM is on demand with 1 start and 3 spare servers. 8 friendica workers with load up to 25.
@JB Carroll @Friendica Support @mʕ•ﻌ•ʔm jesuiSatire bitPickup Yes I do have two small sites on the same pool. One is wordpress with no plugins installed the other is known indie web cms. Before installing friendica I had 5 workers.
I'll try to seperate friendica to the dedicated pool just in case.
