SabNZB setup on Ubuntu

To be honest, this is really very easy. we start by opening a terminal onto the machine we are going to install the package onto and type:

sudo apt-get install sabnzbdplus


Now we edit one of the config files:

sudo nano /etc/default/sabnzbdplus


USER=root
# The Host one can be 0.0.0.0 if you only have one IP address
HOST=0.0.0.0
# Change this to another port if 8080 is already in use.
PORT=8082


Then we make it executable:

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/sabnzbdplus


Then we restart the service

sudo service sabnzbdplus restart

Once this has finished point your browser to http://ipaddress:8082 and finish setting it up, you will need a usenet provider, I use newsdemon myself.
