Access Denied after changing Full Web Access to API Only

Post by glutaman »

Stupid me changed Full Web Access to API Only, and now I'm getting Access Denied. Of course I know the reason now, but I wasn't thinking when I clicked save.

Any idea if I can change this back from a settings file??

Yes, you can: sabnzbd.ini
But I can't find the setting in the WebGUI, so I can't tell you which entry in sabnzbd.ini you need to change

What always works;
stop sabnzbd (from a process manager)
rename sabnzbd.ini to something else
start sabnzbd ... you should get into the wizard. Fill out
done. And/or compare the new sabnzbd.ini with the old one to find out the wrong api/web parameter

Alright, that didn't help but after reverting to the old file, I was able to access it. API key has changed but that was a small hit compared to having to set it up all over again. Happy days!

You can always use WinMerge to compare your old and your new ini file, and selectively restore other settings (SAB needs to be shut down of course).
