In this guide SABnzbd configure Debian. We are going to configure SABnzbd to download from the newsgroups. On a Debian system.
If you opened SABnzbd through your web browser.
By default, this is with the address “http:/ip address-local:8080”
If it’s the first time you start it. Then you get an installation wizard. To enter the basic data.
Select English. And click Start Wizard.
You must fill in the following information:
Turn on the SSL check mark. This ensures that your device’s connection to your Usenet provider is encrypted.
Click now, click to test the connection.
Then, click Next.
Click now, go to SABnzbd.
SABnzbd then restarted.
SABnzbd stuff cleanup
Go to Set (top left).
We’re going to set this up. So your hard drive doesn’t fill up. With failed downloads.
This is what we do with a task. I do this once a week. You also don’t want everything to be removed evenly. So you can figure out what’s going wrong.
Here’s what you do under Task Planner.
I chose Saturday. Because then there’s almost no TV show coming out.
SABnzbd download fails from Newznab provider
If you turn this on, SABnzbd will download another version of, for example, a movie or TV series. If it fails the first time. This work in combination with automatic downloading via for example CouchPotato or Sonarr.
This just works. If the following requirements are met.
- You use an automatic download programs. Like, for example. Sonarr, SickBeard, SickRage, Radarr or Couchpotato.
- The Newznab provider should support it. So as an example Usenet crawler.
You turn this on inSABnzbd under Settings. And then Special. And then you have to turn on the next check mark new_nzb_on_failure (off)
