1. Main settings

Froxlor offers a variety of settings for the panel itself and the server services used. For the more demanding users, there is an advanced more which opens even more possibilities. Settings can also be exported and imported to and from other froxlor installations. You can always use the Global search at the top if you are unsure where to find a specific setting.

Settings overview

As you can see, some features need to be activated explicitly for the rest of the settings in this section to take effect and be editable.

1.1 Unavailable/incompatible settings

Settings: unavailable settings

Some settings cannot be changed or are unavailable due to other setting-values, e.g. the selected webserver. The latter can be hidden by selecting the option System settings -> Hide incompatible settings.

1.2 Settings that require reconfiguration

Settings: Require reconfiguration of services

A few settings will show the above notice. This means that adjusting the value or, in case of an enable/disable, when enabling it might be required to (re-)configure the shown services in Configuration, see Configuration Guide for more information.

1.3 Settings that require OTP validation

Settings that have a major impact on the system or which values are used to be executed with high privileges on the system require the admin-user to have set up and enabled OTP for the corresponding account to change these values.

This behaviour can be disabled via the disable_otp_security_check flag in the


In order to be able to adjust/change these settings, 2FA/OTP has to be enabled system-wide (Settings -> Account settings -> Activate Two-factor authentication). Additionally, the admin-user must have a valid 2FA method activated for his account.

Settings: Require OTP validation

1.4 Import / Export of settings

Settings: Import / Export

To export your current settings-set, click the Download/export Settings in the top-right corner. You can use the generated file to import your settings again or on another froxlor installation. Keep in mind that depending on your settings, possible sensitive data could be stored in the export-file.

In order to import settings, either from a possible backup or another froxlor installation, select the JSON file and press Upload and import to proceed. Depending on what settings are possibly overwritten, you might need to reconfigure some services, see Configuration Guide for more information.

2. Cronjob settings

Although it should not be necessary to adjust any values for the cronjobs as it is managed automatically by froxlor you might want or need to adjust intervals or enable/disable specific cronjobs if you are sure you know why.

3. Settings in

Options that are not adjustable via WebUI settings are read from the lib/ file within the froxlor's base-directory (most likely /var/www/html/froxlor), in case it exists. By default, froxlor ships it as lib/ so custom adjustments will not be overwritten by an update.

To overwrite the options in this file, rename/copy it and adjust as needed:

cd /var/www/html/froxlor
cp lib/ lib/
