I finally setup my TinyTinyRSS server following the guidelines on LifeHacker outlined in this article. The original plan, when Google Reader shut down, was to have my own RSS server and not be beholden to someone disappearing.
Next on the list is to find a bookmarking tool that wouldn’t go away.
While I have the basic system setup and am going for coffee now I have a few things to still look at:
I haven’t set it up for auto update. I am running the PHP update script in a terminal window for now. I think I may simply use the client to update itself by setting it as a pinned tab, it would update every 30 minutes then.
Open up your
config.phpfile in a text editor, and scroll down “SIMPLE_UPDATE_MODE” and change its flag from “false” to “true.” This will make TTRSS update your feeds for you every 30 minutes (by default, you can change this in the Preferences) as long as you’re logged in. Set it as a pinned tab, and you’ll never have a problem.
And I have the final sheet of items I may look at someday, depending on whether I actually switch in the next 7 days from Feedly to it.
