Learn how to configure UNA for use with Filebase.

What is UNA?

UNA is short for Unified Networking Applications, which encompasses a combination of web applications, databases, server apps, and a supporting ecosystem. It enables the creation of a community website that can serve as a social network, business collaboration hub, or any multi-user system with different memberships, roles, content types, and permissions that define community rules. UNA can also function as a conventional CMS or blogging platform for content publishing, but its real strength lies in networking, including social networking, business networking, and device networking.

Read below to learn how to use UNA with Filebase.


1. Once you have downloaded and unzipped the UNA application file, the unpacked folder will need to be uploaded to your web server via FTP through a client such as FileZilla or WinSCP.

The contents of the UNA folder should be placed in the public_html folder on your web server.

2. Once added to public_html, open your website’s URL.

You will be prompted to install UNA. Through the installation process, confirm that the permissions on your web server are configured correctly, along with other factors like site paths and site info.

3. After installation, navigate to your web server.

Your UNA instance will show the UNA homepage.

4. Select your admin account, then select ‘Studio’:

5. Then select ‘Settings’.

6. Select ‘Storage’ to open the Storage drop down menu.

7. From the ‘Default Storage Engine’ menu, select ‘S3V4’.
