Subject Re: Planet initialization failing
Date Wed, 21 May 2008 17:23:05 GMT
yes, that is because the Planet aggregator is a plugin and uses its own 
configuration file.  You just need to create 
file in the same place that you have your file 
and set any relevant properties.

The database configuration properties happen to be the same, so you can 
copy what you have out of your file.  You 
should also set the feed cache property to somewhere on your filesystem ...
