Configure passbolt with the wizard
Once your server is configured, you need to point your browser to the hostname / ip where passbolt can be reached. You will reach a welcome page.
Two options are available: Manual configuration and Wizard configuration. Choose Wizard configuration.
This tutorial will guide you through the different steps of the wizard. The manual configuration is not covered in this article.
The first page of the wizard will tell you if your environment is ready for passbolt. If you used the install script, then it’s only a formality. Click on “Start configuration”.
2. Subscription key
At this step, the wizard will ask you for your subscription key. You should have received it by email soon after your online purchase. Enter it in the box.
This step is about telling passbolt which database to use. Enter the host name, port number, database name, username and password.
4. GPG key
In this section you can either generate or import a GPG key pair. This key pair will be used by passbolt API to authentify itself during the authentication handshake process.
Generate a key if you don’t have one.
Import a key if you already have one and you want your server to use it.
5. Mail server (SMTP)
At this stage, the wizard will ask you to enter the details of your SMTP server.
You can also test that your configuration is correct by using the test email feature at the right of your screen. Enter the email address at which you want the wizard to send you a test email and click on “Send test email”.
The wizard will then ask you what preferences you prefer for your instance of passbolt. The recommended defaults are already pre-populated but you can also change them if you know what you are doing.
That’s it. The wizard has now enough information to proceed with the configuration of passbolt. Sit back and relax for a few seconds while the configuration process is going on.
8. First user creation
Passbolt is now configured. You need to create the first admin user account. This first admin user is probably you, so enter your details and click on next.
9. That’s it!
Your user account is now created. You will see a redirection page for a few second and then will be redirected to the user setup process so that you can configure your user account.
