Setup Sabnzbd

Post by huffman » November 23rd, 2017, 11:29 am

I am able to input the server information, user name and password.
Then I get stuck. I see no way to tell Sabnzbd where to download files to and where the nzb's are so that I can download from the nzb..

I can use some help. Pictures would help. Thanks you

On the main page of SABnzbd, there is the big grey area that says "Add NZB".
You can click there and it will let you either choose an URL, or you can select the NZB file (via Browse) to add to the Queue.
After it is added, SABnzbd will start downloading!

The cogwheel at the top right.
Go to Servers and enter the login data for your Usenet subscription.
You need a Usenet subscription to download.
There are hardly any usable free servers (somewhere between zero and none).

I already have a server. I now just need to know how to tell Sabnzbd where to download files to.
