(Solved) Settings dont stick

Post by sabnewbie » December 6th, 2018, 9:50 am

Edit: marking this as solved as its an issue from my seedbox and not Sabnzbd.

Hey all I need some help. Here is some pretext:
  • I have a seedbox with root access and a user created to use the various applications
  • I install sabnzbd through root ssh (swizzin)
  • When I opened the webgui for sabnzbd I set up the providers etc (like I have done many times before)
  • I wanted to add sabnzbd to nzb360 app (as I have done with other seedboxes), for this to happen I need to change the host from 127.0.0.1 to 0.0.0.0, however this setting change (or any other change) does not stick
  • I log in to ftp as user and change the ini file to reflect the host
  • kill the app and restart the app
The settings still dont stick. can anyone help me with what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks

How do you start SABnzbd?
Maybe via a docker or something?
They might be hinding a "--host 127.0.0.0" parameter in the command, or via some other config options.
When it's supplied via commandline, the config value is overwritten every start.

... at the moment I read "seedbox" ... my alarm bells go off.

Users on seedboxes have all kinds of strange effects: ports, accounts, firewalls, settings.

You're better off with a VPS.

That's a good point actually and I know it's through swizzin so that's how I start. It's weird that this happens only with sabnzbd as I have setup nzbget/radarr etc and it works normally. Not sure where to check anymore 😊

I am a complete newbie to this world and working my way up. I am sure I will get to vps one day but it is too soon now.

Sounds like it's part of the commandline paramaters that start it.
