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.

The paid version introduces several scripts, including threaded scripts. Could you get them on your own? Yeah. The paid version also allows you to index more than one group. Found that little piece when I was trying to have more than one group listed. This makes the paid version mandatory with the free version being more of a proof of concept.

The paid version also has an ID that allows your server to phone home to get the latest and greatest regex's that are supplied by the community.

What I could really use right now is a very thorough list of _ALL_ the groups that indexers like dog, nzbmatrix, etc., indexed. That's my issue right now.

Shouldn't the group list depend on your preferences? If/when I get one running, I have only a handful that I'm going to do.

How nice. This country is being run by a broken record repeating the same two words over and over. Cretin.

The small group of people that are in on this have a diverse set of preferences.

What method are you using to load the full backlog?
