Installing and configuring Tiny Tiny RSS in Ubuntu

Tiny Tiny RSS – aggregator of RSS feeds, which can be viewed in a single personal web-interface.

To get started, download the latest Tiny Tiny RSS version by running the command:

git clone tt-rss

Install the web server and MySQL server if they are not installed:

sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 mysql-server mysql-client

Create a database:

mysql -p -e "CREATE DATABASE `ttrssdb` CHARACTER SET utf8"

The previously downloaded directory from Tiny Tiny RSS will be moved to the web server directory:

sudo mv ~/tt-rss/ /var/www/

Open the installation directory in the browser http://HOSTNAME/tt-rss/install/, and follow the instructions on the screen.

After installation, open the main page http://HOSTNAME/tt-rss/ and enter the name: admin, password: password.

To update the RSS, add the following line to /etc/crontab:

*/30 * * * * /usr/bin/php /var/www/tt-rss/update.php --feeds --quiet

Alternatively, in the configuration file config.php, we change the parameter SIMPLE_UPDATE_MODE from false to true, and the RSS feeds will be updated when the web interface is opened.

In the settings it is desirable to change the administrator password.
