This guide shows how to add the SABnzbd (python based) binary newsreader to your EON ZFS Server.

Pre-requisite(s): The Binary Kit must be installed.
                         Python
                         A newsgroup provider and a source for .nzb files.

This assumes Internet connectivity is working and the pre-requisites have been installed. Let's install SABnzbd newsreader. Start by downloading the latest source. The bitly link is kept updated to the latest version (0.6.15) of SABnzbd periodically. If it is lagging or you wish to try a beta nightly you can download the source directly from SABnzbd home. 
cd /tmp
wget -U IE6 -O sabnzbd.tar.gz http://bit.ly/sabnzbd-latest

If you are upgrading. Let's stop the process and move the current install to a safe location in case we have to roll back.
emp sabnzb stop
(cd /usr/local && mv sabnzb oldsabnzb)

Let's unpack the new version and move the directory to the proper location.
gzip -dc sabnzbd.tar.gz | tar -xf -
mv SABnzbd-0.6.15 /usr/local/sabnzb

Let's copy your previous config "sabnzb.ini" from the old location to the new/upgraded version.
cp -p /usr/local/oldsabnzb/sabnzb.ini /usr/local/sabnzb

SABnzbd is now installed/upgraded and can be started and/or stopped using "emp". Then, browse to your EON IP "http://EON_IP:7777", "https://EON_IP:9090"
emp sabnzb start
emp sabnzb stop
