dynamic xml / rss feeds using php

December 28, 2004

I setup an rss feed using php on my company’s website www.northwestdata.com (which I also designed and developed). It involves a little trickery with the headers. I created an index.php file then put this at the top of the page…
<?
header('Content-type: text/xml');
?>

…to tell the browser to treat it as xml despite the php extension. I got the info here Richard@Home. Didn’t need to deal with the short tag notation as the document is php to start with.

The rest is straightforward php mysql coding.

$ cd ~
$ wget http://www.umich2.com/files/nuvola-theme-0.1.tar.gz
$ su
# cd /usr/share/mythtv/themes
# tar xvzf /home/mythtv/nuvola-theme-0.1.tar.gz
