A fix: Flock crashes and loses all RSS feeds
I really like using the Flock browser. Although it’s a little slow and updates are few and far between, I especially enjoy the integration of Twitter and Facebook as well as the easily visible RSS updates. However, mine recently crashed and deleted all of my feeds. After a few weeks of laziness in looking for a fix, today I came across the information below.
1 | Quit Flock
2 | Rename “flock-data.sqlite” to “flock-data-backup.sqlite”
Located: user folder > library > application support >Flock
3 | Restart Flock
4 | There will be a new flock-data.sqlite. Now name it flock-data-backup.sqlite1 (so it lets you name it with another like-named file in that folder)
5 | Name the file you previously named flock-data-backup.sqlite back to flock-data.sqlite
6 | Quit and restart Flock. Your RSS feeds, favs etc. should be visible again
7 | Be sure to go back and remove the ‘1′ from the end of the file you named: flock-data-backup.sqlite1 because, who knows, you may have to repeat this process someday.
