In this guide I will be taking you through the steps to download and setup NZBHydra2 in Docker on a Synology NAS.

NZBHydra2 combines all your various indexers into a single search site, this is added to Radarr, Sonarr etc. This means you only need to update a single application whenever you want to add a new indexer rather than each one individually.

In order to use this guide successfully you will need to complete the proceeding guide which will get your Docker, user setup.

Downloading the container

Open up Docker within DSM and navigate to the ‘Registry’ tab, then search for ‘NZBHydra2’.

In the list of available containers select the one made by Linuxserver as shown below, right click on it and select ‘Download’ or click the button at the top of the window.

Registry Tab

When the dialogue pops up asking you to choose a version, make sure you choose ‘Latest’ from the list.

Choose latest from the options

You can check the status of the download over on the ‘Image’ tab, it will take a few minutes depending on the speed of your internet connection.

Setting up the container

Back in the ‘Image’ menu highlight the NZBHydra2 container and click on Launch. This will open up the setup wizard.

You will now see the initial setup screen, if you want to you can change the name of the container to something else.

You will also notice a Configure capabilities button — don’t change anything in here!

Enter a name for the container

Next up we are going to click on the ‘Advanced Settings’ button, this will take you to a new window with a number of tabs which we are going to work through.

On the first tab enable ‘Auto Restart’ this will ensure NZBHydra2 will automatically start up whenever you reboot your NAS.

Volumes / Mounts

We can now move onto the ‘Volume’ tab in which we will be specifying the directories where NZBHryda2 will store its configuration files.

Click on ‘Add Folder’ then select the ‘docker’ folder and create a new sub-folder called ‘nzbhydra2’ select this folder and click ‘select’

Now add ‘/config’ to the Mount path box

Network

We are not going to be specifying specific ports for NZBHrydra2 to use as we want to keep things simple, tick the ‘Use the same network as Docker Host’

Links / Port Settings

You do not need to set up anything on these tabs.

Environment Variables (PGID,  PUID and Timezone)

Next we are going to set up a couple of environment variables that docker will use to allow the container access to our files and folders and also to tell it where we live in the world.

Click the Add button, and fill in the following details as per the table/screenshot, you will need to do one at a time.

variableValue
PUIDThe UID you obtained in the user setup guide
PGIDThe GID you obtained in the user setup guide
TZYour timezone wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones
Environment Variables

Almost Done

You have now completed the setup of the container.

Click on Apply to move back to the initial settings screen and then click next, you will be shown an overall summary of the settings we have specified, this is a good time to double-check everything is correct. Finally, click on Done and the container should start to boot.

You should now be able to access the web interface via the IP of your NAS followed by the port 5076

e.g 192.168.0.45:5076

Docker Compose

You can use the below code saved as nzbhydra2.yml in ‘/docker/nzbhydra2’ which you will need to create, this will do the entire process above in one quick command via SSH.

version: "3.2"
services:
  nzbhydra-linuxserver:
    image: linuxserver/nzbhydra2:latest
    container_name: nzbhydra2
    environment:
      - PGID=YOURPGID
      - PUID=YOURPUID
      - TZ=Europe/London
    volumes:
      - /volume1/docker/nzbhydra2:/config
    ports:
      - 5076:5076/tcp
    restart: unless-stopped
sudo docker-compose -f /volume1/docker/nzbhydra2/nzbhydra2.yml up -d --remove-orphans
