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.

In the server logs I can only see smarty warnings related to some variables not being initialized. Shal I post the log excerpt somewhere?

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?
@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.

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 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.
