Any ideas how can I fix that? :(
I'm using TTR it on Openshift Red Hat Cloud.
It worked before 1.7.5

When you update, the "feed-icons" directory is emptied. If you used the updater, a backup folder will have been made of your installation before the update. You can just copy the "feed-icons" directory from the backup to the application folder and your favicons will be shown again.

Yeah, that was right answer. Thanks.
I just found that my config.php uses folder ico, which is not stated by default and wasn't created after upgrade. I simply copied it.
It now shows some favicons, but not all of them. How can I run scanning for favicons ? I tried double click for updating feeds, but its still not showing rest of favicons, same as ./update.php --feeds.

Lol, it downloads new 1-2 favicons each cron update. :lol:
Guess closed.

And btw, it was soft link for me, not folder ico.

I am having the same issue:
- my config is targetting feed-icons folder
- feed-icons has all needed permissions (777)

and favicons are not retrieved.
Copying the icons from backup directory is indeed a workaround for existing feeds at update time.
However when adding new feeds (or deleting/adding one), the favicon are not retrieved anymore...
Could I be missing something here?

Apparently there's a 12h cooldown between favicon checks (except for new feeds) which I completely forgot about.

Ok, good to know!
I just tried adding 2 new feeds, favicons were correctly fetched this time :)
Could the update script be enhanced to keep (or copy from backup) the existing favicons?

Yeah, I guess this makes sense. I'll add it for default ICONS_DIR configurations.

Do the favicons eventually re-download automatically, or is copying from an old version/installation/backup the only practical way to restore them after a manual upgrade?

don't quote me here but it seems I remember that the icons are downloaded only once per 24 hrs.
I just upgraded to the latest trunk and had the same issue... patience... They will eventually dl...

That's all I wanted to know, thanks.

Fortunately I hadn't wiped out my old install yet (had moved it outside of my public_html path) so I was able to just copy the old icons over, but I wanted to know for future reference.

Seems weird to throttle downloading of something so small.

12 hours cooldown, mostly because looking for favicons involves downloading index.html (not just checking for /favicon.ico) and we don't want to needlessly generate traffic.

The updater should copy icons now in most cases so...

… and it works! Updating from 1.7.6 to 1.7.7 via web interface keeps the feed-icons folder content.
