SickRage installer not working



When installing SickRage it does not work. I’ve tried via console or GUI, same issue.

Service Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your
request due to maintenance downtime or capacity
problems. Please try again later.

Any suggestions?


when you run

ps aux | grep sickrage

do you see it running? It should look something like:

/usr/bin/python /home/user/.sickrage/ -q --daemon --nolaunch --datadir=/home/user/.sickrage


No sickrage is not running. Starting it manually with: systemctl start [email protected] does not work either.

EDIT2: port 8081 is not in use as I see it:

This is extremely weird. Trying to alter Sickrage CONFIG.INI to use another port ie. 8082 results in the same problem! What on earth is going in here :open_mouth:


This is a bit odd for sure. I’m assuming you’ve tried restarting the server to get rid of any orphan processes that might be interfering with the port usage?


Yes, I’ve tried everything. This is a clean install, without any modifications. I’ve never seen this before.


What happens if you just run:
Python /home/user/.sickrage/

Does it kick out any errors ?


Same issue :frowning:

What I’d you go total rogue and try to run it on port 90210?


This port is outside the range of allowable ports; however choosing something random might not be a bad idea to rule out this nag


you’re such a buzz kill @liara lol


By default I disable IPv6 on all my systems. Enabling them again allowed Sickrage to start :fearful:

Why this caused a problem, is unclear to me, but now it works.

net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1



One thought here – if you try disabling ipv6 again and in the sickrage.conf change the bind to from localhost does it work? How about with
