sabnzbd Cannot change permissions of

I followed the guides on this forum and made sure I chown the dir but I keep on getting this error.

many thanks for your report. Looks like you are mounting the network drive as user dietpi with read/write permissons for user/group dietpi. So you would need to ensure that user who is running sabnzbd is part of that group.

I am already running it in dietpi group.


Description=sabnzbd DietPi

ExecStart=/usr/bin/python2.7 /etc/sabnzbd/ -f /etc/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini

/etc/systemd/system/sabnzbd.service (END)

root@DietPiHole:~# groups sabnzbd
sabnzbd : sabnzbd dietpi

Hmm usually it should work. Unfortunately I’m not able to test it fully as I don’t have a Usenet account

to verify that user sabnzbd has sufficient write access, you can do following

sudo -u sabnzbd touch /mnt/G2/Incomplete/test.file
sudo -u sabnzbd touch /mnt/G2/test.file

Or you can try to change primary group

usermod -g dietpi sabnzbd

don’t forget to restart the system afterwards
