Generate a New Server Security Key

The server security key is generated during the initial installation, it allows the server admin to verify the validity of the emails sent from the server, the server security key is added to each email sent from your Nodalio powered server. This shortcode allows you to view the current security key or generate a new security key.

To run Nodalio shortcodes on your server, please follow this guide.

Shortcode usage format and reference:

  1. sudo nodalio serverkey new email@example.com
    1. new – generate a new server security key.
    2. email@example.com – an additional email address the new security key will be sent to (an email will be sent to the server admin by default).
  2. sudo nodalio serverkey email@example.com
    1. email@example.com – an additional email address the current security key will be sent to (an email will be sent to the server admin by default).

In addition to the on-screen display, an email containing the report will be sent to the server admin, and optionally to the email address entered.

The server admin email is the email you entered when creating the server / the first site on the server. To change the server admin email, use the serveradmin-email shortcode.
