### In the browser

After signing up in the browser, you will need to use the command line to give your newly created account admin privileges. Assuming your username is `alice`:

```bash
RAILS_ENV=production bin/tootctl accounts update alice --role admin
```

### From the command line

You can create a new account using the command line interface.

```bash
RAILS_ENV=production bin/tootctl accounts create \
  alice \
  --email alice@example.com \
  --confirmed \
  --role admin
```

A randomly generated password will be shown in the terminal.

After logging in, navigate to the **Site settings** page. While there are no technical requirements for filling in this information, it is considered crucial for operating a server for humans.

|Setting| |
|-------|-|
|Contact username|Your username so people know who owns the server|
|Business e-mail|An e-mail address so people locked out of their accounts, or people without accounts, can contact you|
|Instance description|Why did you start this server? Who is it for? What makes it different?|
|Custom extended information|You can put all sorts of information in here but a **code of conduct** is recommended|

After you fill these in, simply hit "Save changes".
