@AlphaJack Looks like monica updated its LICENSE file to now be I was able to rebuild this after I updated that line in the PKGBUILD.

@AlphaJack Figured out the issue finally. It's because of php8 vs. php7. I had to edit the PKGBUILD to set php=/usr/bin/php7 and it worked. Not the cleanest method of doing this, but it solved the installation/update issue.

@cotsuka I am unable to reproduce your issue, have you tried cloning this repo ( and running makepkg inside it?

I'm running into the following error, which seems to be with Symfony so may be upstream. Anybody else hitting this?

PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined method Symfony\Component\Console\Helper\Helper::length() in /var/cache/private/pikaur/build/monica-git/src/monica/vendor/symfony/console/Helper/ProgressBar.php:516

@tumblingthrough you need to install on your computer all the things you would have on your server:

  • a web server (choose between nginx, apache, caddy, etc.)
  • a mysql compatible database (mariadb)
  • a php processor (php-fpm)

and configure them. On top of that you need to install and configure monica according to these programs, especially creating a new database for it and adding a new nginx subdirectory or subdomain.

If you mail me (see the PKGBUILD) I can send you the steps in detail.

Otherwise you could just try to search for a docker container that packages everything you need, so it may be easier to spin up (but I don't have direct experience with it)

@alphajack - probably not the right place for this comment, but I've installed this on my desktop, and keen to use it, but how do I start it? Can't find info anywhere(I've failed to get Monica running on my server, so want to use it locally for now). Thanks.

@satcom886 I didn't change the user ownership of those files because I saw no reason for them to be modified by users other than root. Regarding group ownership, it has the same permissions as external users, and since I didn't see a consistent behaviour among PHP webapps I decided to keep the default root:root. If this appears to be causing issues, I'll be glad to change it accordingly.

Shouldn't all files in /usr/share/webapps/monica be owned by the http group? (so that everything is owned by root:http)
