Virtualhost for Couchpotato, Sickbeard, Transmission and SABnzbd

I wanted to be able to get to my applications without having to enter the port numbers e.g.

instead of

First off is to add the information to enable the Apache Proxy Module. This information came from

sudo gedit /etc/apache2/mods-available/proxy.conf

File excerpt: /etc/apache2/mods-available/proxy.conf

<IfModule mod_proxy.c>
        #turning ProxyRequests on and allowing proxying from all may allow
        #spammers to use your proxy to send email.
        ProxyRequests Off
        <Proxy *>
                AddDefaultCharset off
                Order deny,allow
                Allow from all
        # Enable/disable the handling of HTTP/1.1 "Via:" headers.
        # ("Full" adds the server version; "Block" removes all outgoing Via: headers)
        # Set to one of: Off | On | Full | Block
        ProxyVia On

Then you need to make sure that the modules are enabled

sudo a2enmod proxy
sudo a2enmod proxy_http
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Then you need to add the locations to the defaults sites

sudo gedit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

File excerpt: /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

    <Location /couchpotato>
        ProxyPass http://localhost:5000
        ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:5000
    <Location /sabnzbd>
        ProxyPass http://localhost:8080/sabnzbd
        ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:8080/sabnzbd
    <Location /sickbeard>
        ProxyPass http://localhost:8081/sickbeard
        ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:8081/sickbeard
    <Location /transmission>
        ProxyPass http://localhost:9091/transmission
        ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:9091/transmission

Restart apache by running

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

You will have to edit the config.ini files for both Couchpotato, and SickBeard to use a webroot. Here’s are the lines in the config.ini files that had to change, and what they were changed to.

SickBeard config.ini
web_root = /sickbeard

Couchpotato config.ini
urlbase = couchpotato

Usenet Deals

July 10th, 2011 No comments

I’ve been using Usenet for a while now, and have used a couple different companies. Either of the companies worked fine for me. The first company I used was With Newshosting I had 30 SSL connections, and I could use them from separate locations, e.g. I had my server at home running SABnzbd+ and I had my laptop with my wireless connection running SABnzbd+ too. News hosting was costing me $15/mo for unlimited downloads.

I have since switched to Astraweb. I found a couple deals on the internet for astraweb.  The first deal was $11/mo for unlimited downloads and 20 ssl connections. The second deal, which I am currently on is $96/year for unlimited downloads and 20 ssl connections. The second deal at $96/year ends up being $8/mo.  That’s cheaper than even Netflix currently is!
