possible to use 2 instance of hellanzb?

Asked by MacAdam on 2008-03-18

Is it possible to use one hellanzb with his configuration file in etc/hellanzb.conf and another hellanzb with the conf file managed with lottanzb?

I already have one configuration for hellanzb, i'd like to launch lottanzb with another configuration without touching my 1st conf file.
So when I want to launch one configuration i just run hellanzb in terminal, and another time, when i want to use another configuration i run lottanzb in a terminal.

The 2 doesn't necessary have to be running at the same time.
That way each manage their own conf file without incidence over the other.

Thanks

It's possible to use multiple configuration files for different purposes.

When running LottaNZB in stand-alone mode, it always tells HellaNZB to use the configuration file managed by LottaNZB (~/.lottanzb/hellanzb.conf).

If you want to use an existing configuration file (/etc/hellanzb.conf for example) you can easily launch hellanzb by typing "hellanzb -D -c /etc/hellanzb.conf". This will launch the HellaNZB daemon, which you can control using LottaNZB's front-end mode (this one doesn't touch the HellaNZB configuration file). Currently it's not possible to switch between these to usage modes without deleting the LottaNZB configuration file ~/.lottanzb/lottanzb.xml first. But you can expect a new function for LottaNZB 0.2 which will allow you to switch between the two usage modes on-the-fly.

Here's the corresponding blueprint: http://blueprints.launchpad.net/lottanzb/+spec/ability-to-reconfigure I'm afraid we haven't started working on this yet but stay tuned!
