I installed the FreshRSS docker, and got to the error message about: Can't connect to local MySQL server. So I read on another thread to install another Docker with MySQL/MariaDB.

 

So after much gnashing of teeth, I made this work as follows. Install a MySQL docker. After struggling with the stone-aged command line, I got smart and installed MySQL Workbench which I used to create a database, user, and password. The final trick is what to put in the host line of the FreshRSS setup, The default, localserver, does not work. Instead, use your unRAID IP, e.g. 192.168.1.123 and be sure NOT to include the port: 3306.

baseurl as a variable isn't ubiquitous. Seen a few mentions of it from time to time and I'm not sure where it stems from. I haven't looked at proxying this as I don't use it, but unless the readme explicitly states that baseurl is an option there's no point trying it. (I haven't checked if it does or not)

Bummer to hear that.  In the install.php there is a base_url variable that I hoped would work, but it didn't seem to work for me.  Looks like I need to forward a port to access from outside the LAN.

Thanks for this docker.  I was able to get this set up with the letsencrypt docker using a subdomain "news.server.com".  Setup was simple, pretty much the same as any other subdomain.  ie. point dns entry to my server, add news to the letsencrypt docker subdomains variable, create the new site conf news.

 

No manual edits were made to the freshrss config directory.

Please forgive my ignorance, but do I have to use the letsencrypt docker if I never want to access FreshRSS from outside of my local network?  Does it leave me exposed if I don’t?

No & not unless your port forward on your firewall/router.

Hi,

 

I've installed mySQL, created a db and user + password for the db. However, getting an error when configuring freshrss.

The db, rssreader, is empty and the account freshrss has full priv on the db

There is no mysql database in this container, so using localhost will fail. You need to use the IP (or the container name if on same custom docker bridge) to connect to the container for mysql.

Thank you, got it working now!

 

Another question - where is the 'extensions' folder in the unraid instance? I don't see it under appdata/freshrss

Thanks!

Any idea about this? I can't find any info on the official wiki either...

Thanks

Letsencrypt reverse proxy question:

After setting up my subdomain forward for freshrss.<mydomain>, letsencrypt doesn't work with the default freshrss.subdomain.conf. I've had to change the following lines because otherwise letsencrypt proxies to 172.18.0.7:80 (default freshrss docker ip/port). Anyone know why this is? I assume it's something to do with the resolver???

<         set $upstream_app freshrss;
<         set $upstream_port 80;

---
>         set $upstream_app 192.168.1.1;
>         set $upstream_port 8084;

Do you have both letsencrypt and freshrss on the same custom bridge? If they are on the same custom bridge, you don't have to change to IP or change the port.

Yep, they're on the same custom bridge. I've changed back to the default and it's working.

Thanks saarg.

 

Now to get the freshrss android app working. I'm currently getting a "This url is not correct error" as others have had in the past - https://git.feneas.org/christophehenry/freshrss-android/-/issues/70

I haven't found a decent rss app on android (had FeedMe but it's too slow to refresh feeds) and the html ui for freshrss isn't great on mobile as the post titles get truncated.

If anyone has any recommendations for a good Android RSS reader that works with freshrss, would appreciate it

I know this is months later, but:

 

1. the error message for the mobile app is because the api password is not set.  If you set this and fill in the same password when prompted on the mobile app, you are set.

 

2. Readrops is a fine android RSS reader, and it supports freshrss.

does anyone know how to configure this container to display full article contents from sites that don't display full contents when adding as a feed?

You can't add anything to the stream. You get what the sites adds to the feed.
