Run the OPML Editor on port 80

Tuesday, March 10, 2009 by Dave Winer.

I always have to reinvent this, every time I want to set up an OPML Editor server on port 80. So now, by posting it here, I can just search for it and I should find the instructions. If you don't understand, don't worry. Permalink to this paragraph

It's now incredibly simple to do this.  Permalink to this paragraph

1. Add this line to opmlStartupCommands.txt: Permalink to this paragraph

user.opmlEditor.flServerOnPort80 = true; Permalink to this paragraph

2. If the OPML Editor is running, quit and relaunch. Permalink to this paragraph
