The latest version of smeserver-tt-rss is available in the SME repository, click on the version number(s) for more information.



Tiny Tiny RSS is a web based feed reader. You can take a look at the online demo


This contrib has been developped and tested on SME Server 8b6 and later. It probably won't work on SME 7.

Installation 8.x and 9.x

Configure Firewall-Services's repository:

db yum_repositories set fws repository \
BaseURL http://repo.firewall-services.com/centos/\$releasever \
EnableGroups no GPGCheck yes \
Name "Firewall Services" \
GPGKey http://repo.firewall-services.com/RPM-GPG-KEY \
Visible yes status disabled
signal-event yum-modify
  • install the rpms
yum --enablerepo=fws --enablerepo=remi-safe --enablerepo=epel install smeserver-tt-rss
  • Appply the needed configuration:
signal-event webapps-update
db configuration set UnsavedChanges no

You can now access the application using this URL: https://your-server.domain.tld/tt-rss All users created on your SME Server can login with their usual credentials.

Information.png Tip:
be aware that after a major update of this contrib, a script db-updater.php is automatically launched by TinyTinyRSS and you need to give the default admin login and password (admin/password) to allow the script execution.

Additional options

Some settings are available from the DB

  • Authentication: Control the way users are authenticated. Correct values are http (apache protect the access), internal (uses the internal database to manage users and groups. An admin have to create user account before they can login). If you use the internal authentication mechanism, you need to login using admin/password. A last value is available for this prop: LemonLDAP which uses LemonLDAP-NG to validate credentials, and the internal ldap server to get user/group information. You can have more information on this later on this page.
  • MultiUser: If set to disabled, the application will only manage one profile, everyone will share the same settings, the same list of RSS etc...
  • AliasOnPrimary: can be enabled or disabled (default is enabled). This prop lets you disable the access to Tiny Tiny RSS on your primary domain (the alias /tt-rss won't be added in apache configuration). This is useful if you want the application to be available only with a virtualhost.
  • status (enabled|disabled). Enable or disable web access, as well as the demon update
  • access (public|private). Private by default, gives access only to local networks and the IP address are allowed to access in the server-manager ($ $ localAccess externalSSLAccess)


db configuration setprop tt-rss AliasOnPrimary disabled
signal-event webapps-update

Important.png Note:
Keep in mind that if you want to use the application tiny-rss with a mobile phone (android of course) or a laptop outside of your wifi network, you must allow the application in Public way.


db configuration setprop tt-rss access public
signal-event webapps-update

Integration with LemonLDAP::NG

Tiny Tiny RSS can be protected by LemonLDAP::NG. Here're the steps to protect it

Disable the access on the primary domain

You should disable the access to Tiny Tiny RSS on your primary domain:

db configuration setprop tt-rss AliasOnPrimary disabled
signal-event webapps-update

Enable LemonLDAP::NG integration

This contrib support LemonLDAP NG auth quite easily:

db configuration setprop tt-rss Authentication LemonLDAP
signal-event webapps-update

Create a new virtualhost for Tiny Tiny RSS

Lets create a new virtualhost for Tiny Tiny RSS. You can choose the name you want, for example, lets create rss.domain.tld:

db domains set rss.$(db configuration get DomainName) domain Content Primary Description 'Tiny Tiny RSS' \
DocumentRoot /usr/share/tt-rss Nameservers internet TemplatePath WebAppVirtualHost \
Authentication LemonLDAP
signal-event domain-create rss.$(db configuration get DomainName)
signal-event webapps-update

Declare this virtualhost in LemonLDAP

You can now create the virtualhost in LemonLDAP management interface. You can create the rules you want. For example, here're the rules to accept only members of the group 'rss'

  • Comment: default
  • Rule: $groups =~ /\brss\b/


If you want to remove the contrib, just run:

yum remove tt-rss
