How to install sabnzbd on Ubuntu

These are the prerequisites to install Sabnzbd on the Ubuntu operating system.

Before install sabnzbd, add repository and update using this following command:

Step 2:

Now install SABnzbd on Ubuntu, use the following command:

#sudo apt-get install sabnzbdplus

After SABnzbd installation on Ubuntu completes you can start it using the shortcut icon that was created in the menu or you could use the following command:

Edit default file to configure IP and port. (I am using nano editor. If you do not have you can use vi or you can install nano)

#sudo nano /etc/default/sabnzbdplus

user=root (or username)
host= (your ip address)
port= 8080 (declare a port here)

Now we configure sbnzbd.ini file. Declare IP address and Port.

#sudo nano ~/.sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini

Find following line and change the line with required value.

host= xx.xx.xx.xx (use your ip)
port= 8080 (declare same port as before)
user= admin (anything you can put here as username)
password= password

Reboot your server.

#sudo reboot

Run sabnzbdplus


Start the service using following line:

#sudo service sabnzbdplus start

Good luck!
