Application problem

Check the logs

FreshRSS logs are located in ./FreshRSS/data/users/*/log*.txt

N.B.: A typical problem is wrong file permissions in the ./FreshRSS/data/ folder so make sure the Web server can write there and in sub-directories.

Common locations for additional logs

N.B.: Adapt names and paths according to your local setup.

More logs can be generated by enabling 'environment' => 'development', in ./FreshRSS/data/config.php

Running the feed update script (with the same user and PHP version as your Web server) might provide other hints, e.g.: sudo -u www-data /usr/bin/php ./FreshRSS/app/actualize_script.php
