Can't use custom location of par2cmdline on a seedbox

Post by vdown » January 7th, 2019, 3:31 pm

I have Sabnzbd installed on a Seedbox with no root access,

I've installed the latest version of par2cmdline to ~/bin but Sabnzbd insists on using the version in /usr/bin/. Is there an easy solution to this, I can't see anywhere in settings for a custom path and I have ensured that the ~/bin folder is first in $PATH

Thanks.

It should look for "par2" in the path. Are you sure Sab is started with a path in which that's available?
And does the Sab user have permissions to access and execute it?

What is the output of:

Code: Select all

which par2
and

Code: Select all

par2 -V
and how do you start sabnzbd?

They both point to the latest version in my home folder.

Startup parameters (however it's inside a docker i think)

/usr/bin/sabnzbdplus --pidfile /home/*****/******/.sabnzbd/.sabnzbd.pid -d

Having said all that, I assume it's the docker. I'll check with my seedbox provider. I'll post back if I get it fixed.

It was the docker image, I got the provider to update par2cmdline it and all is working fine now.

Thanks for the responses and pointing me in the right direction.

So a seedbox provider that uses docker? Nice. Can you tell which seedbox provider that is? Here, or via PM?

It’s bytesized. I could be wrong about Docker, it’s more of an assumption on my part.
