I can run SAB but my ubuntu server doesnt let me autostart it

Post by luc1f3r »

Preface; i had SABplus installed succesfully via the websites instructions. Shortly after i came upon an article that had me remove unrar and install another unrar application.

1. I decided to purge everything from SAB (and also purging) the previous winrar(?) version.

2. i reinstalled sab and unrar

3. after restarting SAB i found that everything(!) is working again, happy ever after! Just..sab wont let me autostart it, when i check i get this in return;

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~$ sudo service sabnzbdplus start
[sudo] password for tim:
[email protected]:~$ sudo systemctl daemon-reload
[email protected]:~$ systemctl status sabnzbd
● sabnzbd.service
     Loaded: bad-setting (Reason: Unit sabnzbd.service has a bad unit file setting.)
     Active: inactive (dead)

update:
i added the following lines to

After=network.target

[Service]
Type=simple
