Install CouchPotato Debian via the command line

In this Install CouchPotato Debian tutorial. We are going to install CouchPotato via the command line. If CouchPotato is installed. Then movies are automatically downloaded from the newsgroups. As soon as the desired quality of the movie is available.

Install CouchPotato required software

We need to install the required software for CouhPotato. Otherwise CouchPotato cannot function properly.

We have to. Start doing an update.

sudo apt-get update

Now we go. Install the required software.

sudo apt-get install git-core libffi-dev libssl-dev zlib1g-dev libxslt1-dev libxml2-dev python python-pip python-dev build-essential -y

Now we have to install the other required software. For CouchPotato.

sudo pip install lxml cryptography pyopenssl

We will now download and install CouchPotato. To the hidden couchpotato folder.

git clone https://github.com/RuudBurger/CouchPotatoServer.git ./couchpotato

Set rights correctly on the couchpotato folder. Note: adjust user name to your own user name.

sudo chown -R username:username ./couchpotato

Now we have to check. Whether CouchPotato can be started.

python ./couchpotato/CouchPotato.py –daemon

You are now done installing CouchPotato.

You can now access CouchPotato through your browser. By opening the following page: http: // ip-address: 5050

Start CouchPotato automatically

It is of course handy. That CouchPotato is started. While booting. We are going to arrange that now

sudo nano /etc/default/couchpotato

Copy and paste the following into this file. And adjust the username twice here. To that of your own Debian username.

CP_HOME=./couchpotato
CP_USER=username
CP_PIDFILE=/home/username/.couchpotato.pid
CP_DATA=./couchpotato

Now copy the Init.d script.

sudo cp ./couchpotato/init/ubuntu /etc/init.d/couchpotato

We have to make the script executable.

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/couchpotato

We must activate the script.

sudo update-rc.d /etc/init.d/couchpotato defaults

Now, to be sure, test whether it works. You do this by restarting the computer.

sudo reboot

You are now completely done with the installation of CouchPotato on Debian.
