Best way to upgrade sabnzbd

Version 1.1.1 is out but with the integration with QB I just wanted to know if there is a best practice kind of thing with this or should I just use the PPA method

I’ve not tested this, however, in theory you should be able to add the update by pulling directly from the repo. Here is the best way to achieve this (again, in theory).

###As your sudo user run the following commands

REMEMBER: It’s important to back things up.
You could do a cp -a ~/SABnzbd ~/SABnzbd.COPY to preserve the original… just in case :wink:

mkdir -p ~/tmp/sab
git clone ~/tmp/sab
mv -f ~/tmp/sab/.git ~/SABnzbd/.git
mv -f ~/tmp/sab/.gitignore ~/SABnzbd/.gitignore
rm -rf ~/tmp/sab

Once you have pulled the .git directory from the repo and moved these directories/files accordingly, you can then navigate to ~/SABnzbd and type git pull to run a fresh pull of the current 1.1.1 branch.

Thank you very much for a helpful a detailed walk through I’ll give it a shot when I get home from work

On a side note be great to see this as easily updateable as your plex update procedure in future

Have a great holiday
