Sonarr & Jackett - 503 Service Unavailable

I’ve got my quickbox running with Plex, plexpy & rutorrent working perfectly fine on my Ubuntu box.
However when i’ve installed jackett & Sonarr they install fine but when i hit the web interfaces for either i get hit with the following page:

When did you install Jackett? We had to fix the install script recently.

What do you get when you run (change USER):
mono /home/USER/Jackett/JackettConsole.exe -v

I installed both Jackett and Sonarr the day i submitted this to the forum.

when running the command above:
(1:35)# mono /home/hottwire/Jackett/JackettConsole.exe -v
04-13 09:05:41 Info App config/log directory: /root/.config/Jackett
Jackett v0.7.1287.0

When installing it again this morning i got the following:
/home/hottwire/.config/Jackett/ServerConfig.json: No such file or directory

Check if “/home/hottwire/.config/Jackett/” directory exists. If not, create it (mkdir /home/hottwire/.config/Jackett/) and retry installation.

What happens if you run:

sudo systemctl jackett@USER

I’m wondering if it installed the service at all or not. If not, I can walk you through manually installing and seeing if that works.

neither worked however it was installed under root.
I removed it from root and re ran box under my ssh account and it all seems to be working as expected now.

Glad to hear. Was suspicious when I saw “/root/.config/Jackett”

Just an FYI you didn’t need to reinstall it, you could have just changed ownership of the directory and made it executable.

For example:

chown -R user:group /opt/Radarr && chmod -R 777 /opt/Radarr
