Change user for Medusa Install on Raspbian


Disclaimer...I know just enough Linux to be dangerous.

In the past, I've installed and run programs on both my NAS box and a few RasPis.

Recently, I have been running SickRage and NZBGet on my RasPi3 under Raspbian.

Unfortunately, the SickRage community has had some internal politics going on which have affected the ongoing stability of the program.

I've decided to switch to Medusa.

I followed the same guide to install Medusa as I did for SickRage, as much as that was possible. Link

Everything is now running properly, including starting the service at boot.

I am running into permission issues with my shared media drives. Post-processing does not work.

In the past, SickRage has always run under user: pi.

Medusa is running as user: Medusa. I'd like to run Medusa as user: pi.

I'm pretty sure my problem lies in the init.d default file.

The original install guide shows the following:

SR_USER=pi
SR_HOME=/opt/sickrage
SR_DATA=/opt/sickrage
SR_PIDFILE=/home/pi/.sickrage.pid

Are there changes I should be making in this file?

Thanks, PC

i don't see anything that says that medusa is compatible with sickrage.
in fact, i don't see any information about medusa here.
please provide more information.

Thanks for the reply ondoho.

Here's a link to the Medusa homepage. And a link to their GitHub page.

In the "Guides" section of their wiki, all of the links point to existing SickRage install guides. That's what I followed.

i had a look at all 3 links you provided so far, and i see no indication that the steup process for medusa is 1:1 comaptible with sickrage's.
i see, in fact, very little mention of sickrage inside the whole medusa repo.
afaiu, you can use your old sickrage/sickbeard databases, but that's about it.

in other words, you should set medusa up the way it is outlined on their site, and not anywhere else.

Thanks for taking the time @ondoho.

I'll take another look at their documentation.
