Just a quick follow up on these questions thanks for the answers so far.
sab12397 wrote: 1. When you run the update_releases script are the regex being applied in the correct order?  If I enable the regex at ID=13 and ID=15 (all newsgroups) all releases seem to be assigned to these two regex - when 13/15 are disabled the releases seem to go to the other regex as expected.  ID's 13 and 15 have an ordinal value in the 50's so I do not understand why these are getting priority.  I thought all the other regex would be tried first and then these two treated as the catch alls?
Still not sure what these disabled ID's (assuming catch alls) are for and whether they are being applied in the correct order :(
The regex file has not been updated recently so I do not know if they are wrong etc.  Probably misunderstanding ordinal value?  If that is the case the existing ordinal values need to be increased and the 13/15 catch all need to be set a low value so these are used last before the other ones?

If I setup my virtual host in Apache to listen to a none standard port as soon as I click on a menu item all URL's on the page loose the port number.  e.g. http://myhost:8084 displays correctly then click on a menu item and the page loads as expected but all the urls on this page do not have a port number http://myhost (no port number) and therefore none of the URL's work.
Still not sure this is my Apache setup causing this.  It seems to only happen after I load the homepage (where the port numbers are listed). A second load of a different page and some links do not have a port number (not all links some of them still have the port number).  As some of the links do have a port number to me indicates that Apache is probably setup correctly.  I have double checked that I have a Listen entry and my vhost is set to the same Listen port in my relevant conf file etc.  The popout menus always have the port number but other links like all the menu containing Logout etc do not.

Nothing is being listed in the Browse sections which display a search screen even though the browse menu items without a search screen are working fine.  I do have all the Lookup services disabled - I am guessing some Browse features rely on these Lookups.  Perhaps if you have the lookup option disabled the full release name could be added to the Title in these sections so you can still see the releases correctly organised and search them (albeit in just the Title field).
I do have Releases what I needed to do was change to Standard UI Categories in my Profile to get these to work as I described.

Thanks

Hello. Ive successfully set up newznab on my computer and it has been working great for a couple of weeks now, but I can not get the backfill script to work right. On some groups it will work fine, but on others it gets stuck in an endless loop. After going into the backfill.php script and turning on the debug flags, I get hundreds of "retried # of time(s)" messages in it trying to set the interval. It never gets to the "Getting ###### parts (##### in Queue)" part of the script.

The only way that Ive found around it is that everytime the script gets stuck on a group, I stop the script, set the backfill days of that group to 1, and then rerun it so the script will skip that group and go on.

The update_releases and update_binary script work great.

Does anyone else have this problem? Im about to try to edit the script so that it will bail out of that group and go on if it gets stuck in the loop. Thanks in advance for any help.

It might be better for me to try the irc channel to get some help but I dont have time right now to work through it, so I thought I would post this up real quick and see what responses I get in the mean time.

PS: I cant access the google code page for the site either. I get a error 403: forbidden.

i would like to request these changes if they are possible and if you have spare time

1)advanced raw search (check out http://www.mysterbin.com/advsearch?q= )

as of now newznab for obvious reasons cant correctly and fully make releases out of ALL binaries.
many things can be found only via raw search. Unfortunately newznab's raw search pales in comparison with raw search any nzbindex service provides(nzbindex.nl\binsearch\ and mysterbin)
You can check the example from mysterbin.

2) Collections view.

When you browse raw binaries there are LOADS of articles. This + extremely poor search\browsing raw headers capabilities = failure to deliver

Again, check out any nzb index service and ho they properly group articles into collections . Even newsreaders do that nowadays(newsbin pro\usenet explorer\newsleecher etc)

3) Search within archives(raw\collections)

newznab already shows detailed contents of archives which is awesome
The only thing left is to make it able to search within these list of contents\ archives.


Cheers

I successfully installed newznab, but I've an issue at the setup steps.
At the news server setup part I need to use a username and password, I don't have to use a user name and password and can't continue with the setup.
Usenet is covered within my internet connection, I only need to supply the server address and connection port with or without ssl and it works.
Is there a way to setup newznab without user authentication?

Anyone has Newznab running with lighttpd?
I managed to install newznab, but the rewrite rules don't work with lighttpd. I've tried the rewrite-rules provided with newznab and the others I found on the web, but none of them are working for me. When I browse to newznab I get this error: ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS

BBird, i had the same issue.
if you skip the step by changing the step number in the address from step3.php to step4.php, that ill allow you to continue setup.
After the setup is done edit the www/config.php file, just change "define('NNTP_SERVER', '');" to "define('NNTP_SERVER', 'your.news.server');".
Hope that helps you.

I'm running newznab & SABnzbd on the same Ubuntu box and I'm having some trouble getting the two talking. About the only thing that does work is the RSS feeds, oh, and the downloading an NZB into the watched folder.

The 'send to SABnzbd' does not work at all. Newznab is indicating it has sent it, yet nothing queues in SABnzbd. I have tried to find some sort of log file that might tell me what is happening or not happening, but I'm coming up empty.

Has anyone else had trouble getting the two to talk? Also I should probably mention that I don't think SickBeard is having much luck using my newznab server (again both are on the same machine).

im guessing your sab is visible to your newznab.

is your sab running under https? only there was a bug which is now fixed for that. also just double check the sab url is exactly right, no trailing spaces etc. its certainly working fine for most people.

This is now fixed, blank username/pass can be entered during installation.

I have memory set at 256MB already and it is still giving me an error. I refuse to enter more, no script should ever use that much at all. What is the solution, anyone??

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 77 bytes)

For anyone else that my be experiencing this, I have found that the SABnzbd as defined in newznab needs to end in a forward slash. As an example, "http://myhost:8080" does not work but "http://myhost:8080/" does work.
