Newsbin v3 [nzbget, nzbgetweb, nzbgetter & unpak]

Today I release a new complete package for the Conceptronic CH3SNAS & CH3MNAS (2 different binaries)

before you use my package make sure you use

fun_plug, PHP5 with curl support, have installed unrar and installed the lighttpd module as well
the newsbin package you can download here

It contains:

  • – nzbget version 0.7.0-testing-r357
  • – nzbgetweb version v 1.4 (testing-5)
  • – nzbgetter version 1.0
  • – modified script

in short how to install:

put the correct file into the root of the Harddisk of the NAS, this is /mnt/HD_a2

untar the tgz file with tar -xvzf newsbinch3mnas-v3.tgz or tar -xvzf newsbinch3snas-v3.tgz, a folder newsbin will be created
Than there are a few files you have to copy manually into the correct folders
go into the newsbin folder with ‘cd newsbin’
than copy  the 2 shell script files (extension SH) to the startup folder of Fun_Plug

‘cp *.sh /ffp/start’

with next reboot nzbget will be started automatically.
optional you can copy from /conf/ the cronfile into /ffp/start as well to have nzbgetter auto-download your nzb files, it is possible you already installed it, so do not copy it cause your old crontab file will be overwritten.

if you do not reboot you have to make sure you start the two shell scripts manually.

cd /ffp/start
sh start
sh start

the first script starts nzbget for downloading from usenet, the 2nd script will run lighttpd with the correct configurations

upload your nzbfiles manually into /mnt/HD_a2/newsbin/nzb or use nzbgetter.

to access nzbgetweb interface: http://[ip-of-nas]:8000
to access nzbgetter web interface: http://[ip-of-nas]:8000/nzbgetter or access it through the nzbgetweb interface

Please make sure you configure nzbget with your usenet account and password
the script will make sure that downloaded stuff will be put in the correct folder after download.
this short how-to is far from perfect and a quick reference next to the normal manual of the various tools

if you want to upgrade

copy the binary from the /bin/ folder
copy the /web/ folder to your /web folder
copy the /nzbgetter folder to a new created /web folder
optional: copy from the /conf/ folder the to /ffp/start


NZBGET+WEB + UNPAK updated package

I’ve updated the nzbget + nzbgetweb script with latest versions for the Conceptronic CH3SNAS:

  • NZBGet: NZBGet version 0.7.0-testing-r317
  • NZBGet Web Interface v 1.4 (testing-2)

the unpak script is little modified to fit the CH3SNAS configuration and has been changed to fit the config in NZBget Web when using the version 1.4 (testing-2).

Little How-To

Install Fun_Plug 0.5 of Fonz

Note: if you already run lighttpd you must make own adjustments to your lighttpd configuration and websettings

install the PHP package (needed for lighttpd).

  1. Download with wget PHP package (temporary from my server) as the new updated PHP version of Fonz seems to break something. Install PHP with ‘funpkg -i php-5.2.6-3.tgz’

Update: after consulting Fonz (Tobias) I learned that the new version of PHP is compiled with CURL support. So it’s necessary to install the curl package as well

RFH (Request For HELP): UNPAK2 script for NZBget

I’ve managed to modify the updated unpak script from ydroll for the CH3SNAS with NZBGET. This one is much bigger and much worse to have it correctly implemented in the CH3SNAS (especially as there is a ‘catalog’ file included, which is different scripted and has less ‘hard-coded’ pathnames in it.

I’m not a script-kiddie, so Request for Help: the script in my folder is for experts only: you need to know what you are doing. I think the script is working for 95% and 5% gives probably issue on the catalog part. So if someone is able to modify the script / idea of ydroll so that many users of the Ch3SNAS can use it: help is appreciated on the UNPAK1 (the standard version I also use) and UNPAK2 script.

Looking forward to modified scrips .. ;-)
