0.31.5 NZB's Will Not Import
« on: April 26, 2010, 09:38:55 am »
I cannot get any NZB files to import into alt.binz, through the auto import folder, RSS feed, or manually adding the file. At first I thought there was an issue with the RSS filter downloading, but when I could not get a file to manually import I went looking through the logs some more.

I can see from a few days ago before the problem started that there are log entries with [Main][RSS] prefix's catching the match from the RSS feed, but there are no longer [NZB] prefix log entries where it usually logs however many files were imported. Now when I try to manually import alt.binz hangs and I'm forced to end the process.

alt.binz version: 0.31.5
OS: Server 2008

So, the first thing to do, if you haven't already tried just restarting Alt.Binz, is to figure out what has changed on your system between "a few days ago before the problem started" and today.  Alt.Binz doesn't, as a rule, develop bugs spontaneously.

What is the location of the Alt.Binz app folder, NZB watch folder, d/l directory?  Does AB run under the SYSTEM user?  If AB runs under some other user does that user have permissions to the necessary directories.  Yes, I know...but if we missed an exception handler it would account for the crash.  I am a bit boggled why you would run AB from within Server 2008.

Yeah restarting Alt.Binz was the first thing I tried. I also rebooted the server to see if that would help. The last successful import was on the 23rd, and I was out of town until the 25th, so nothing had changed on the server. I'm going to go through the server logs to double check that, but I'm almost positive. I was surprised that it just stopped working when nothing has changed as well.

Alt.Binz app folder: E:\Applications\Alt.Binz
NZB watch folder: E:\Download Import
D/L directory: F:\Download

It is running as administrator, it always has for the past year. It's also not that it won't import from the import directory, I cannot manually import an NZB file from Alt.Binz itself, doing that causes it to crash. I run Server 2008 for a few reasons, mainly DFS. The server runs 24/7 as a networking backup, media server, ftp, but mainly handle downloads with Alt.Binz.

I removed my config.abz file and re-entered all my settings, I am able to manually import NZB files and auto-import works as well. I had tried that before with no luck, but it worked a second time.

Are you, by any chance, using nzbmatrix? (https://www.altbinz.net/forum/index.php?topic=3812.msg16542#msg16542)
I am actually experiencing that issue now. The RSS filter recognizes but will not download from nzbmatrix. Now I can at least manually import, but I will watch/post in the thread you started.

This should be resolved now.
