## Installation
1. install and cofugure TOR, Privoxy and TT-RSS
apt-get install tor privoxy tt-rss
2. configure privoxy. Add this to `/etc/privoxy/config`
forward-socks5 / .
3. follow the [ArchWiki instructions]( using MariaDB as backend.
Also follow [these]( [instructions](
to configure MariaDB
4. follow the install setup of TT-RSS
5. add this to you Apache virtual host
DocumentRoot "/usr/share/tt-rss/www"
<Directory "/usr/share/tt-rss/www">
AllowOverride All
Options FollowSymlinks
php_admin_value open_basedir "/tmp/:/usr/share/tt-rss/www/lib/dijit:/usr/share/tt-rss/www/lib/dojo:/usr/share/tt-rss/www/lib/phpqrcode:/usr/share/tt-rss/www/lib/scriptaculous:/usr/share/tt-rss/www/include:/var/lib/tt-rss:/usr/share/tt-rss/www/lib:/usr/share/tt-rss/www:/usr/share/php:/etc/tt-rss:/var/log/tt-rss:/var/cache/tt-rss"

## Hacking
1. have a look at []([^1]. Since then the variables have changed and so here
are some adaptations:
1. `apt search tt-rss` and get the version:
tt-rss/stable,now 18.12+dfsg-1.1 all [installed]
Tiny Tiny RSS - web-based news feed (RSS/Atom) aggregator
2. find a commit in the [source code]( corresponsing to that version
git clone
cd tt-rss
git checkout 986ca251f995f7754a0470d3e0c44538a545081f # This commit roughly corresponds to version 18.12 as identified earlier.
3. search for `PROXY` strings:
grep -rn PROXY *
which results in:
include/functions.php:376: if (defined('_HTTP_PROXY')) {
include/functions.php:377: curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY, _HTTP_PROXY);
include/functions.php:484: if (defined('_HTTP_PROXY')) {
include/functions.php:486: $context_options['http']['proxy'] = _HTTP_PROXY;
plugins/af_unburn/init.php:40: if (defined('_CURL_HTTP_PROXY')) {
plugins/af_unburn/init.php:41: curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY, _CURL_HTTP_PROXY);
5. add the following at the end of `/etc/tt-rss/config.php`. These variables should cover even more recent TT-RSS versions:
define('HTTP_PROXY', '');
define('_HTTP_PROXY', '');
define('_CURL_HTTP_PROXY', '');
define('SELF_USER_AGENT', 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:63.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/63.0');
2. finally restart the services: `systemctl restart tt-rss apache2 privoxy`
