Installation instructions


  • PHP >= 5.3.3 (PHP 7.x recommended)
  • PHP extensions: ctype, dom, hash, iconv, json, xml, mbstring, pdq_sqlite/pdo_pgsql, pcre, session, SimpleXML (curl is recommended or set allow_url_fopen=On)
  • Sqlite 3 or Postgres >= 9.3
  • libxml2 >= 2.7.x


From the archive (stable version)

  1. You must have a web server with PHP installed (version 5.3.3 minimum) with the Sqlite and XML extensions
  2. Download the latest release and copy the directory miniflux where you want
  3. Check if the directory data is writeable (Miniflux stores everything inside a Sqlite database)
  4. With your browser go to http://yourpersonalserver/miniflux
  5. The default login and password is admin/admin
  6. Start to use the software
  7. Don't forget to change your password!

From the repository (development version)

  1. git clone
  2. Go to the third step just above

By default, Miniflux uses Sqlite, if you would like to use Postgres or MySQL instead you will have to modify your config.php file.


  • Don't forget to change the default user/password
  • Don't allow everybody to access to the directory data from the URL. There is already a .htaccess for Apache but nothing for Nginx.
