Re-install production server

One week ago, I had a production and staging server up and running and with Forest Admin installed.

Sadly, my production server has been destroyed. So I re-installed server last week and now everything is working well in my server.

How can I do the config in Forest admin so that production interface connect back to it’s server

It seems i need to re-create Authentification Secret (AUTH_SECRET) and Environnement secret (ENV_SECRET).

How could I do that ?.

Hello @Florent,

It is possible to retrieve your secret key without having the server started:

  • Launch Forest Admin
  • Click on your project
  • Change the URL in your browser to point to[your project]/settings/general
  • Click on “environments”
  • Click on the environment you want to retrieve the secret for
  • It should be displayed

Does it work for you?
