I would love to run my own newznab indexer. I tried out Newznab classic, and the install seems to go swimmingly. However, when I enable "a few" groups, and run the two update scripts, I never get any releases.
Its recommended in the readme to do that to make sure its working as it should, but I just don't know if it is.
This is the howto I followed
following the shutdown of the matrix today I too discovered newznab classic, and with my knowledge of php, apache and mysql it definitely seems to be a viable option for me to use as a replacement.
I managed to get it installed just fine using the same article you posted and newznabs own documentation. only thing I changed was I also installed phpmyadmin to manage mysql a little easier. when I ran the update_binaries script it seemed to complete successfully and with 5 groups selected my db is about 60mb, but when I run the update_releases I get nothing returned.
I too followed this guide http://www.howtogeek.com/120285/how-to-b...t-indexer/ and set up newznab and everything else etc. Have had no problems with adding groups and starting the process of downloading etc.
ONE big question to anyone with more knowledge than myself. What I did was install all this on a spare laptop I have with ubuntu on it. What I wanted to do was have this laptop host the index website for me to access from the other computers on my network. It seems that guide created a setup that is only accessible on the laptop. Anyone know if there is a way I can modify the setup so the indexing website is available to other computers on my home network ?
I would really appreciate any and all input. I'm assuming this is a modification to the apache area of the setup ? But I really have no idea.
If you set it up on ubuntu and are running apache, you should be able to access the site on any computer in your network by IP address (i.e. http://192.168.1.10
), since I used both that howtogeek article and the newznab documentation to configure mine, I can't remember which one told me how to create the VirtualHost file I needed, essentially if you didn't do that you will need to create a VirtualHost file for the site and set your newznab site to your default site rather the default apache site running on port 80. See the newznab setup guide on how to do this, it's pretty easy.

Yeah, you can use XAMPP to run apache/mysql to get this setup. You won't find any documentation on how to do this, so it will require some basic apache knowledge on how to use the existing guides and tailor it to work with XAMPP. The alternative would be the way that I am running it, download and install VirtualBox and create an Ubuntu Server VM, 2 cores and 1GB of RAM should do it.

Just to give you an idea, I set my newznab site to backfill 1 days worth of headers for 6 groups and my DB is currently at 600MB with probably 4 other attempts at updating the binaries. I did go back and purge the groups but it didn't seem to reduce the size of the DB at all so I think there was about 90MB of fluff in there from my other attempts iirc. So depending on how many groups and how long you want to index, IMO it's pretty lightweight.

Do the 2 regex's that come pre-builtin with newznab not work? Could you post some others that may work better or post where to find better regexes?

XAMPP is just a way to run apache natively on Windows, since I have no experience with it I can't tell you how you are supposed to interface with it, but you should be able to follow the guides already out there for setting it up on ubuntu and actually save quite a bit of time since you have a GUI. Just download the newznab classic zip file, extract it, put the contents of the zip in your apache directory which is typically /var/www/ for apache on linux. Then it's a matter of going through the existing guides and making the apache/php tweaks outlined.

Run a 'sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin' and let it install accepting the default values. Then on another computer open a browser to the http://<IP Address of your newznab server>/phpmyadmin, the default login is root and whatever password you specified. Managing your SQL DB's becomes much, much easier with phpmyadmin.
