Unable to start sabnzbd on CentOS7

Post by fayttsuki »

Hello,

I recently discover sabnzbd and was following the information from the wiki to install sabnzbd from sources.

Every time i try to run systemctl start sabnzbd, i'm getting the error with unhandled Python exception:

https://hastebin . com/focuhajoko . yaml

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

So: https://hastebin.com/focuhajoko.yaml

First things first. Can you run Sabnzbd from the CLI? So without systemctl.

Seems you are using Python 3.5 or 3.4. Those are not supported anymore by Python itself and not by SABnzbd.
If you like our support, check our special newsserver deal or donate at: https://sabnzbd.org/donate

Sander,

When I ran sudo service sabnzbd start, it redirect to /bin//systemctl start sabnzbd.service
Same error as the link to hastebin

I ran python --version and get Python 2.7.5 and python3 --version and get Python 3.6.8

No, that is not what I meant. Just run sabnzbd like this:

Code: Select all

python3 /some/path/SABnzbd.py
Does that work?

It didn't work and pretty much telling me i'm missing module from the requirements.txt file (e.g. Cheetah, feedparser, configobj, etc.) . By this point, I think i pinpoint the issue to missing python3 packages. Long story short, i removed SABnzbd and started a fresh installation using Snapd instead. No issue yet. Thanks for your helps!
