This is what I did:

- uninstalled xampp
- redownloaded xampp executable
- re-installed xampp
- in the htdocs folder in C:/xampp, i created a folder called newznab
- right click newznab folder, click on checkout and put in the svn link for nn+
- then go to my broswer and navigate to http://localhost/newznab/www/install
- i was then able to get past my previous error about the non-object
- Then during the setup, newznab will tell you about some errors, (max execution and a few others)
- open up php.ini in a text editor and change to recommended values (newznab tells you)
- restart apache
- Done

Hi, hope someone can show me the way.

I have installed the classic newznab on my server (centos 5) and everything working fine.
Now, I want to upgrade to plus, how can I do that? I'm already donated (Confirmation number:8AK604828E819564A) and have downloaded plus version, just not sure how can I go and update my existing setup on the server.

Hope someone can help.

I have a question about how much disk space newznab needs. I understand it will vary based on sub'd groups and days retention, but if a few people could give estimates of what they use, it would give me an idea of what to expect.

I'm thinking about installing it and allowing it to run as a back up indexer for myself. But I'm not sure if it's worth the effort as there are so many good public sites out there at current.

Thanks for any input. :)

@tymanthius...
I currently use the free newznab version. I check four groups every half hour and have a 4 day 'retention'. The database is around 6.5 G...
But that's my setup... I blacklisted a couple of things as well. With the included api I was able to create a rss-feed for sabnzbd and grab the stuff I want.
Works like a charm!

Hi Folks,

I followed the windows install guide (thanks!) but I have two errors:

1. Apache won't start because port 80 and 443 is in use. I get this error even when turning off the Windows Firewall

2. I already have mySql installed, and get an error for that too. I edited my.ini to point to my existing path.

Any thoughts?

Is editing config.php to change the newsgroup server the right way to do? I just shifted from to a new vendor and did not want to reinstall the existing database.

I have a successfully running Neznab+ server and now I am trying to integrate it with sabnzbd, sickbeard and CP. However when I initially test it with sab it doesnt seem like they want to communicate. If i try to manually add a NZB from url it just sits in the queue and says

Trying to fetch NZB from http://10.1.1.39/getnzb/2db14735xxxxxxx ... rip-aks74u (xxxxx out some stuff in case its sensitive)

the error log says:

empty NZB file tlu-bdrip-aks74u.nzb [http://10.1.1.39/getnzb/2db14735xxxxxxx ... rip-aks74u] (xxxxx out some stuff in case its sensitive)

If I go to my newznab server and click on the download nzb link for this nzb it downloads fine, then I can uplaod the nzb to Sab and Sab will download just fine using the nzb file.

So my question is... why cant I add a nzb from url?

Here is what i did...

1. Remove the Sabnzb username and password.
2. Edited .htaccess file with the following two statements towards the end of the file...

Code: Select all

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !api/  
RewriteRule api/?$ index.php?page=newznabapi [QSA,L]
This got my newznab "Send To SabNzbd" running.
