CouchPotato Server

CouchPotato (CP) is an automatic NZB and torrent downloader. You can keep a "movies I want"-list and it will search for NZBs/torrents of these movies every X hours. Once a movie is found, it will send it to SABnzbd or download the torrent to a specified directory.

Running from Source

CouchPotatoServer can be run from source. This will use git as updater, so make sure that is installed also.

Windows, see the CP forum for more details:

  • Install Python 2.7
  • Then install PyWin32 2.7 and GIT
  • If you come and ask on the forums 'why directory selection no work?', I will kill a kitten, also this is because you need PyWin32
  • Open up Git Bash (or CMD) and go to the folder you want to install CP. Something like Program Files.
  • Run git clone https://github.com/RuudBurger/CouchPotatoServer.git.
  • You can now start CP via CouchPotatoServer\CouchPotato.py to start

OSx:

  • If you're on Leopard (10.5) install Python 2.6+: Python 2.6.5
  • Install GIT
  • Open up Terminal
  • Go to your App folder cd /Applications
  • Run git clone https://github.com/RuudBurger/CouchPotatoServer.git
  • Then do python CouchPotatoServer/CouchPotato.py

Linux (ubuntu / debian):

  • Install GIT with apt-get install git-core
  • 'cd' to the folder of your choosing.
  • Run git clone https://github.com/RuudBurger/CouchPotatoServer.git
  • Then do python CouchPotatoServer/CouchPotato.py to start
  • To run on boot copy the init script. sudo cp CouchPotatoServer/init/ubuntu /etc/init.d/couchpotato
  • Change the paths inside the init script. sudo nano /etc/init.d/couchpotato
  • Make it executable. sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/couchpotato
  • Add it to defaults. sudo update-rc.d couchpotato defaults
