How to Install SABnzbd+ in Ubuntu
This guide will show you how to install SABnzbd into an Ubuntu or Debian based system.
SABnzbd is a brilliant application for downloading media files from Usenet, all you need to do is sign up to a Usenet server, and then provide it with a .NZB file. It does all the hard work of downloading the various components of the media file (generally sections of a compressed RAR archive), it then unzips them ready for you to use.
NZB files are like torrent files, in that they simply provide you a header file of information for your system to retrieve the entire file. However, instead of downloading peer-to-peer, you are downloading from a single server at the full speed your internet connection.
You‘ll need to be a member of an NZB Indexing website in order to use Sickbeard and Couchpotato. Unfortunately I‘m unable to provide a recommendation as the site I use is locked out to new users and I haven‘t tried any others. A search on Google for “NZB Indexer” brings up quite a few.
