Good evening,

I've been reviewing the sample templates and configuration files for custom RSS.  On my system, these are installed here:  /usr/share/koha/bin/cronjobs/rss.  I'm stuck on where to place the XML that is produced in order to make the output accessible/subscribable via the OPAC.

I've tried placing the XML files into koha/opac/cgi-bin/opac and into koha/opac/cgi-bin/opac/rss.  Then, I tried accessing the files (with permissions set to 755) using the following guesses at URL scheme:

http://mycatalog.com/cgi-bin/koha/lastAcquired.xml (results in a blank page that has only the words "not found" in the upper left)
http://mycatalog.com/cgi-bin/koha/rss/lastAcquired.xml (results in 500 internal server error)
http://mycatalog.com/lastAcquired.xml (results in an Error 404 in the OPAC, "Sorry, the requested page is not available")

I'm sure the issue is a matter of ignorance on my part as to what the best and acceptable locations are for placing "local" files.  I apologize for that, but please know I invested a couple hours before asking.  Thanks in advance if anyone has tips as to where to place the files, and then, how to access them.

Excerpt from lastAcquired.conf:

title=Recent Koha Acquisitions
link=http://www.koha-community.org (<-- I assume this is supposed to be my catalog URL, and I updated accordingly)
desc=The 15 most recent acquisitions
title=Koha, the worlds best Open Source Library System
output=[here I inserted path to destination folder]/lastAcquired.xml
