PostForum: RSS2SQL (RSS to MySQL Feed Importer)   Posted: Mon Jul 04, 2011 11:20 pm   Subject: Almost there ...
This is all very new to me and trying to make sense of it as I go. Steps 1-12 went well:

Installation:
=============

1) Unzip the contents of the rss2sql.zip file, and copy the extracted files to a folder on your web server. The folder should be accessible from the Internet, like your regular web pages. In fact, the destination folder could be the same folder that you keep your web pages in.

7) In your browser, enter the full URL to the location of the rss2sql file, and use 'buildConfig' for a parameter.

Example: http://www.FeedForAll.com/rss2sql.php?buildConfig
http://www.cfiendorsements.com/rss2sql.php?buildConfig

This will bring up the configuration screen for rss2sql

8) There are a lot of fields on this screen. Unless you very experienced with databases and have specific requirements it is suggested you keep all of the defaults. The default field names match the field names used by rss2html.php.

9) Hit the 'Generate configuration data' button at the bottom of the screen.

10) The screen will refresh and display the contents of a new c ...
