SABnzbd & Sickbeard on FreeNAS

    I’m trying to follow along this tutorial, but I keep seeing XXXX in a few key places?

    Is this deliberate?

      Thanks for noticing this! It was an “older” post though but I have updated to my best knowledge 🙂

        Ok, I have followed the guide (I already had a user called media – but has a UID of 8675309 – can’t be edited), but I followed the remainder of the instructions and it seemed to go fine until I tried to add a show to sickbed and I get this error:

        “2017-10-17 20:50:27 CP Server Thread-9 :: Unable to create the folder /media/Series/Scandal, can’t add the show”.

        It appears that sickbed doesn’t have permission to create a folder?

        Any ideas?

    I’ve got it working, it was a problem with the permissions in Sickbeard.

    I’m going to try and get Sonarr working now, using the same procedure and folder structure you used for Sickbeard.

    Thanks for the great tutorial!

    how did you fix this error, i keep getting the same on

    “2017-10-17 20:50:27 CP Server Thread-9 :: Unable to create the folder /media/Series/Scandal, can’t add the show”.

      Hey Mathew, This has to do with the right permissions on the folder (in your case [/media/Series]). You could try to [chmod -R 777 /media/Series] from within the jail running Sickbeard. Alternative, if there is a windows share present, you could change it from the security tab in the share.
