Post by Ray071295 »

I have two macs side by side
A. iMac- MacOS 10.15.4
B.Mac-mini- MacOS 10.13.6
SAB Opens on Mac A and really don't need it to.
I want it to open on Mac B and it won't.
Any help would be great

By open, you mean it doesn't start?
Try running this in the terminal on mac B:

Code: Select all

/Applications/SABnzbd.app/Contents/MacOS/SABnzbd --console
And share the output with us.

Correct, it doesn't start. I am not a terminal guy.
I am however, open to using it.
What is the exact command in terminal, please?

The code shown above, just copy paste exactly that into the terminal and hit enter.
What does it print?

I copied:
/Applications/SABnzbd.app/Contents/MacOS/SABnzbd --console
responded: No file or directory
I HAVE SAB in a folder in applications.

In which case you would need to add the name of that folder after "/Applications/"

"/Applications/YOURFOLDERNAME/SABnzbd.app/Contents/MacOS/SABnzbd --console"

You could simplify matters by eliminating your folder and having SABnzbd.app directly in the Applications folder.

It seems like a path problem: you're not accurately specifying in your path exactly where SABnzbd,app is. You're misspelling your folder name or something else in the path. Or perhaps the folder name may have illegal characters (another good reason to eliminate it)?

You have put sabnzbd on port 443, for which you as normal user have no rights.

Solution: use the same command and on the same line add

-s 0.0.0.0:8080 -b1

Now your setup is correct again, and you can start Sabnzbd the usual way. So ... click on an icon? (I don't use Mac myself)

It seems to have opened. Thank you sir. So now my question is when I downloaded a movie, it did not rename the movie. It is a bunch of numbers/letters!

OK, but can you play that movie, for example with VLC?

(If you really want to automatically rename it, read https://sabnzbd.org/wiki/faq#deobfuscate ... but that is not beginner's level)
