Hello,

Can you recommend some webhost not expensive (or free) that I can use? compatible with tt-rss?

Thanks

Which part of "unsupported platforms" you don't understand?

Sure, a Linux server PC on your home network or a virtual machine running Linux on the PC you're using to access the Internet.

http://www.chicagovps.net/openvz.html basic option. $1 / mo. You have to pay for a whole year upfront. It takes some management as it is a full server not just an apache instance.

From the screenshot it looks as if your script is located in public_html/tt-rss/yourhostersucks.php whereas you specified public_html/yourhostersucks.php

And just a quick comment regarding the "options" posted by others: Please do not rent an unmanaged (virtual) server unless you know what you are doing.

Guys, please.

1) Unsupported platform means that it is not supported. So, people can't ask for support in this forum. But they may ask for help. The purpose of this forum is letting people ask for help (and maybe even getting it) without polluting the forum for legitimate support questions. So he can keep asking all that he wants.

2) The point here is not if the failure is in tt-rss or not. The point is if people here can help or not. People can ask in this forum for problems that affect tt-rss but are not part of tt-rss itself, as long as they are problems that other people might have suffered and have a solution for, even if the solution is completely outside tt-rss. That's why it's called Unsupported. Because it is not support. EDIT: If people asking about solving problems with hostings bothers you you can safely ignore this forum and read only the Support forum.

This is what I think.

that said, if he talked to his provider about how he should properly set up his cron job, it might just fix the whole issue ;)

Yeah. That's the advice we can give after the question. Not before.

that was the advice after the question, which seems to have been ignored.

that said, it's pretty hard to tell the guy "go ask your provider how to do cron on their system" *BEFORE* they ask the question about having cron problems.

sometimes the best help is "we can't help you here" and possibly a pointer to where one can find help.
