Downloading nzb from the web, double clicking to add to SabNzbd getting API key incorrect, Use the API key from Config->General in your 3rd party program: 127.0.0.1 [SABnzbd/3.4.2]

I'm running Ubuntu Server with KDE desktop. I found out that internet connection is handled by systemd service not NetworkManager, maybe that is the issue.

Can't figure it out.

How to make Sabnzbd not throw the error "API key incorrect, Use the API key from Config->General in your 3rd party program" when double cliking nzb file?


systemctl status sabnzbdplus
● sabnzbdplus.service - LSB: SABnzbd+ binary newsgrabber

I think the service should not says "exited" isn't it?

As you mention systemctl: do you think systemctl has to do with it? Do you get the error if you run SABnzbd from CLI, like "python3 /path/to/SABnzbd.py"?

Back to your error:

Code: Select all

 API key incorrect, Use the API key from Config->General in your 3rd party program: 127.0.0.1 [SABnzbd/3.4.2]
It seems SAB is complaining SABnzbd itself is accessing with the wrong API key. Weird. Never seen that. Easy first thing: reboot your system, and try again.

Seems there's 2 instances of Sabnzbd installed.
