Unable to install SABNZBd on new install, wrong in script?

-just installed quickbox on two different servers, and I get “Service Unavailable” on both servers when I try to install SABNZBd. Plex and other plugins works.

anyone know whats up? Why won’t it run?

Maybe quickbox will update this, but here is quickfix
login as root
go to: /usr/local/bin/quickbox/package/install/
type: nano installpackage-sabnzbd
remove: http://sourceforge.net/projects/sabnzbdplus/files/latest/
replace with: https://sourceforge.net/projects/sabnzbdplus/files/sabnzbdplus/1.1.0/SABnzbd-1.1.0-src.tar.gz/download


I have the same problem.
It’s like it doesn’t install the sabnzbd package.
Tried both Debian and Ubuntu - same results.

anyone here that can fix this? :slight_smile: I don’t know how

I managed to get it installed replacing
in the file

Apparently the latest tar file is not in gzip format, so the file doesn’t unpack.

like this?

_sab() {
  apt-get install -y python-cheetah >/dev/null 2>&1
  cd /home/${username}/
  wget -qO SABnzbd.tar.gz https://sourceforge.net/projects/sabnzbdplus/files/sabnzbdplus/1.1.0/SABnzbd-1.1.0-src.tar.gz/download
  tar xf SABnzbd.tar.gz >/dev/null 2>&1
  mv SABnzbd-* SABnzbd
  chown ${username}.${username} -R SABnzbd
  rm SABnzbd.tar.gz
  touch /install/.sabnzbd.lock

Did not work here :confused:

Same problem for me

Is there any quickbox guys online? Maybe fix the problem:-)

I think i have found the solution

just type
in place of

i didn’t tested it with the automatic way but in hand.
So i’m not sure it will be ok with the automatic way.

The file downloaded by the link in the package is a exe file.

Yea i did it this way as well. I copy-pasted each command by hand and it was able to proceed.

I’ve made the change and a merge request in the sources, i hope they’ll accept.

Yes not able to install SABNZBd. Any work around for this?

I did try to edit the script to the same as you posted, but did not work.

Is there any quickbox guys here?

Also have the same issue with a fresh install, I have made the suggested changes.
anyone have any other ideas?

You need to edit the file /usr/local/bin/quickbox/package/install/installpackage-sabnzbd . The one in /root isn’t being used.

I would also suggest pulling it from source instead of specifying the version.

This is what I updated it to so it included the dependencies.

_sab() {

apt-get install -y python-cheetah python-dbus python-openssl dh-python python-yenc par2 unrar unzip p7zip-full >/dev/null 2>&1

cd /home/${username}/

git clone -q https://github.com/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.git /home/${username}/SABnzbd -b master --single-branch || (echo “GIT failed” && exit 1)

chown ${username}.${username} -R SABnzbd

touch /install/.sabnzbd.lock


Edit. The text is wrapping so a added a blank line between each line.


The develop version was driving me nuts! Thanks so much for showing how to do the stable version with the master flag.
