Upgrade causes API key regen

Post by EhEmGee »

Every time I upgrade SABnzbd on Windows the API key changes, forcing me to visit each of my services to reset the API key they're using.

This is unusual behaviour that I can only surmise is a bug, because there's no obvious reason the API key should be changing--it breaks workflows.

Sounds like something specific to your setup, by default it doesn't do that.
How do you run SABnzbd? From the installer or the standalone version?
In the default location or place the sabnzd.ini in a specific liocation?
If you like our support, check our special newsserver deal or donate at: https://sabnzbd.org/donate

I use the installer, and I'm installing to the default location, aside from installing to D: instead of C:.

After upgrading, are your other settings (like newsservers) still there?
