You can just run the 2 scripts automatically by adding them to your crontab.
You're going to end up using a lot of diskspace for anything more than a few groups and 10+ days retention.
So, I've actually gone through the process of setting up a paid version of newznab. I have 30 days retention on a good three dozen groups. I'm using up 16GB of space, including space for the OS (Linux).
Inside of the scripts folder, contains sub-folders for update scripts. You do not cron these scripts out as they will execute continuously. Using the screen command, you background these scripts and you add the script to your startup.
Adding this to your cron will cause you to spawn up more and more of these scripts. Cronning out the individual update binaries and update releases will cause things to operate out of order. Use the update script that is provided. It cycles and checks things more thoroughly than a novice cron invention will.
Do you know more about the differences between the Paid version, and the free Regex file that was available? Is it really that much better to run the paid version? Could you provide more detail to the screen syntax, as getting this stuff up and running are my next steps? Thanks.
