CouchPotato on FreeBSD

For CouchPotato in FreeBSD, firstly acquaint yourself with my previous blog entry on Sabnzbd+Sickbeard on FreeBSD, and then perform the following additional steps:

At Step 3, fetch CouchPotato’s source code:

# cd /usr/local && git clone git://github.com/RuudBurger/CouchPotato.git couchpotato

Also, it is advisable to change the permission and ownership of the CouchPotato folder:

# chown root:_sabnzbd /usr/local/couchpotato

# chmod g+w /usr/local/couchpotato

At Step 4, add the following to /etc/rc.conf:

1
2
couchpotato_enable="YES"

.. and create /usr/local/etc/rc.d/couchpotato containing:
