Upgraded to 0.6, get 'Http error code 404' in window titled 'Start Downloading'

Asked by theirongiant on 2011-02-18

Installed 0.6 according to the instructions on the Ubuntu downloads page. Started it up and installed sabnzbd. Restarted and ran Lottanzb Usenet Downloader. On the Start Downloading window the is a Http error code 404 message and i can't do anything else. Any clues, can't see anything obvious.

Hi theirongiant,

when starting LottaNZB, it first tries to connect to SABnzbd by accessing http://localhost:8080/api in order to detect if SABnzbd is already running. The fact that you're getting a 404 HTTP error indicates that it's indeed getting a response, but the thing that is responding doesn't seem to be SABnzbd (because the error means "not found"). Is it possible that you have any other application or service running on your computer that exposes a web interface on the same port 8080? You might want to open http://localhost in your browser.

What I meant was http://localhost:8080/ of course.

Ah, Oracle Express Edition 10g runs on that port. Not sure which will be easier to move. I'll have a look an see if i can bump Oracle to another port but how difficult would it be to change ports for lotta/sabnzbd

Best Severin Heiniger (severinh) said : #4

You can change the port SABnzbd listens on by editing the property 'port' in ~/.sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini. LottaNZB doesn't need to be configured, it will figure out the right port on its own.

Have fun with LottaNZB!

By the way, it might be a good idea to make the error message in LottaNZB more specific, i.e. by telling the user that another application is already using that port.

theirongiant (markaduncan74) said : #6

Cool, thanks for the advice. Yeah i think a message saying that another process is already running on that port would be clearer.

I Have this problem too, so i have to stop apache2 and tomcat to be able to launch lotta.

b8e5n (b8e5n) said : #9

I forgot to say that before, but i changed the port and it works in the same time as apache.

Thanks Severin Heiniger !
