Previously, I wrote about doing a weekend project, and decided to try Tiny Tiny RSS. I also decided that I would install it on my webhosting plan Dreamhost, since I already had the resources. It was super easy!
I pretty much followed the installation notes on the Tiny Tiny RSS website. You will need to make sure you have a new database, as well as the username and password, along with database server name (if not a local machine).
You need to download the tarball, and uncompress it. I use OS X, so uncompressing the file is super easy by double clicking.
I used Cyberduck FTP to upload it to my Dreamhost server, in a new subdomain (for example: subdomain.binarydigit.org)
You then visit the new RSS site at http://subdomain.binarydigit.org/install/ and follow the instructions to enter in database name, username and password.
Almost done! Visit your new rss site, and ensure you change your default password. You also need to remember to set up a method to update your RSS feeds, since it won’t happen automatically. Since I used my shared webhost, I decided to use the simple background method, by changing SIMPLE_UPDATE_MODE to true in the file “config.php”.
Don’t forget to import your Google Takeout “subscriptions.xml” into your new RSS reader. This is the same as your “OPML” as well. To do this, go to “Actions”, “Preferences”, “Feeds”, then scroll down to “OPML” near the bottom of the page:
