Can't auto start || no file etc/init.d/sabnzbdplus

Post by anthonyd »

I just did a fresh Ubuntu 22.04 install this past weekend and installed Sabnzbd with the instructions at sabnzbd[dot]org/wiki/installation/install-ubuntu-repo

I can start Sabnzbd manually but when I went to set it up to start on boot, there was no file sabnzbdplus in the /etc/init.d folder. There is a config file in the etc/default but it doesn't have anything to start the service in it.

I did try removing and reinstalling the software but that didn't make a difference.

Is there somewhere I can download the /etc/init.d file?

Thanks!

download http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/m ... rig.tar.gz and get it from there?

But:

sabnzbdplus from Ubuntu does provide /etc/init.d/sabnzbdplus ... see https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suit ... ds=sabnzbd

And the sabnzbdplus from PPA also provides it:

Code: Select all

dpkg-query -L sabnzbdplus | grep "/etc"
/etc
/etc/default
/etc/default/sabnzbdplus
/etc/init.d
/etc/init.d/sabnzbdplus
So something wrong with your setup

I don't know why it wasn't installing with the rest of the package.

Thank you for the link, I was able to get the file and copied it over and now everything is good. Thank you!
