Start paused?

Post by thedaveCA » 11 Jan 2020, 23:37

I'm running NZBGet 21.0 and trying to get NZBGet to start in paused state. I created a Scheduler entry, time 0:00, WeekDays 1-7, command PauseDownload. I created a second for testing with DeactivateServer with Param 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. I have no other Scheduler entries.

Even with both of these, when I restart, NZBGet starts online and starts trying to download.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Tentatively disregard, I think there was something calling the API that was unpausing. Investigating why, but I don't believe this is a NZBGet issue. Sorry for the noise.

You can add "-P" to the command launching nzbget, for example:

Code: Select all

nzbget -D -P
If on Windows and you use service mode you need to edit registry entry for the service to add the extra parameter.
