Well I think you should first familiarize yourself with the OS that you use, and then try to find where did you install php and tt-rss, cuz I have absolutely NO idea.

pretty sure he didn't install anything, he just waved his arms around a bit till he accidentially clicked on something on some shared hosting thingydoo...

the problem with you 'waaah, I don't know nuthing, explain it to me like I'm 5' "people" is that you mental 5 year olds shouldn't be playing with computers, you should be in the coal mines, putting in an honest days labor, not bothering the adults with your whiny attempts at questions.

We still got gold in hockey. Another reason to laugh last...

But seriously, that's actually exactly what I'm asking for - hence the title "for non coders".

We want to subscribe to our shopify orders using rss. ttrss is the only self-hosted rss client I could find that can access rss feeds that require authentication.

I figured out how to get it running, then resubscribed to the rss that ttrss generated.

Now I am able to subscribe to that rss in google docs.

The one final step I need to complete is to be able to update the feeds.

If someone can post a link that shows how and where to "run: php ./update.php --daemon" that would be enough.

Personally, as a non-coder, I find google very good for first gathering everything I can find and reading it. Then, if I can't understand what the hell they said, I find a different application or method to do what I am attempting. This method has served me very well for over 8 years using linux now.

How about coming to a forum hosted on the site that has a wiki tab next to a issues tab and says "...while feeling as close to a real desktop application as possible." on their homepage?

... that has a help page with a installation guide, admin guide, user guide, and developer guide?

All this trouble for a tiny rss aggregator?

And still no one here can explain the one last step to get it running? really?

With that said now, I can sit back, eat my popcorn, and enjoy this forum. It usually provides great entertainment, but today is better than normal!

The last step has been inside you all along. Specifically, your anus.

Maybe one of your headmates knows PHP, try asking around your head a bit, report back.

I would suggest your Linux Server OS unless you have other ideas of course. Nobody is kinkshaming here.

How about a screenshot of "php ./update.php --daemon" being written?

I think that you've realized the ability to 1) think for yourself, and 2) do some research, and 3) put things together.

and you've also noticed that you don't have to be a coder to use linux, but having some sense helps ;)

keep it up!

It's not a "tiny rss aggregator." It's a Unix based SaaS application that provides an RSS aggregation service. This means that knowledge of Unix and the middleware necessary for running the application are assumed. I could provide you with an upstart job suitable to run the updater on Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS but since you're using MySQL (and I've no idea what Linux you're using), it won't work for you. You may want to contract a Linux consultant to configure the software for you.

Code: Select all

# tt-rss - Tiny Tiny RSS
#
# This job runs the feed updater for Tiny Tiny RSS.  This is not the main
# application itself, this is merely the feed update daemon.

description     "Tiny Tiny RSS feed updater"
author          "AngryChris"

start on runlevel [2345] and (local-filesystems and net-device-up IFACE!=lo)
stop on runlevel [!2345]

respawn

setuid www-data
setgid www-data

pre-start script
    test -x /var/www/tt-rss/update_daemon2.php || { stop; exit 0; }
    test -c /dev/null || { stop; exit 0; }
    test -f /run/postgresql/9.1-main.pid || sleep 30
end script

exec /var/www/tt-rss/update_daemon2.php
