SABnzbd as a Service not working.

Post by Angryprash » December 10th, 2018, 5:09 am

So i have a new Windows Server 2012 R2 virtual machine spun up, I'm trying to install SABnzbd on it and run as a service (so i don't have to log in trigger the auto-start)

I followed the wiki guide here and i see both the SABnzbd-service, and the helper service running, but even from the virtual machine localhost doesn't work until i manually start the program from C:\program files\Sabnzbd.

SABnzbd was installed with admin privileges on a standard user PVR account, but i modified the services to run under the Administrator account as it wasn't working under the 'local machine' default.

Is there something I'm missing? Any advice would be appreciated.

Did you specify the path to the sabnzbd.ini correctly?
I would see if in that path, in the admin folder, you can inspect the log.
Let' see if it's binding correctly to the ports and which port.
Maybe the firewall is blocking it.
