Mattermost Peer-to-Peer Forum

No teams are available to join. Please create a new team or ask your administrator for an invite


I configured the server, but when I access it for the first time it tells me that I do not have a channel, so I can contact the administrator, how can I get around this?
I’ve tried some tutorials, but none for Ubuntu 16.04 installations, could anyone help me?



Hey there,

I have the exact same Problem: installed Mattermost 5.0.0 (Ubuntu 16.04) with MySQL 5.7 and I can create a first account but after that nothing happens - I can’t create a Team and got the same message as the poster above.

I tried to create a Team with the command line tool > worked, but then I tried to give adminstrator rights to my initially created account and nothing happens. Ist still a user. What can I do?

I used the following commands:

./mattermost team create --name myteamname --display_name “my team”
./mattermost team add myteamname myusername
./mattermost roles system_admin myusername

Any help? :slight_smile:


I found the problem for me: I forgot to enable the apache 2 module proxy_wstunnel (you will also need proxy and proxy_http)
Now it works and I can create teams. :slight_smile:


Hi @cezarbehrend - let me know if the above helps you ^

I also found this thread that might help: "No teams are available to join", how do I create one?

If neither works, just let me know!
