We use cron to run tasks every once in a while. To see the current list of jobs that run, do:

crontab -l

To edit them:

crontab -e

To see what the file format is, read this reference.


The planet program lives in ~/planet-prog/. It outputs to ~/public_html/planet/ via an every-30m cron job.


It's in ~/planet-prog/examples/fancy/config.ini . Add RSS feeds here.

Add people's mini-photos in ~/public_html/planet/images/ and adjust the config.ini as appropriate.

Upgrading "planet"

You could try upgrading it using "bzr". I wouldn't try it without backing up ~/planet-prog/. I expect it to clobber ~/planet-prog/examples/fancy/config.ini.
