YOURLS is a self-hosted link shortener service written in PHP.


Install the yourlsAUR package.


A MySQL database and user are required, to complete the configuration file at /etc/webapps/yourls/config.php.

In the same configuration file, set YOURLS_SITE to either your short domain https://domain.tld or a subfolder http://domain.tld/sub, but always without the trailing /.

Set a random cookie key, for example using pwgen 50 1 and a user/password combo for the admin user. You can write the hash or the plain-text, but in the latter case, the web server needs rw permissions to be able to hash it.
