What is NZBGet?
NZBGet is an Usenet downloader, it will download releases from Newsgroups and where required will also repair and extract releases. It works on its own or in conjunction with other tools such as Sonarr and Radarr.
In the guide I will be taking you through the steps to download and setup NZBGet in Docker.
In order for you to successfully use this guide please complete the two preceding guides
Downloading the NZBGet Image
Open up Docker within DSM and navigate to the ‘Registry’ tab, then search for ‘nzbget’. In the list of available containers select the one made by Linuxserver as shown below and click on ‘Download’.
The pop-up box will ask which version you want to download, make sure you choose ‘Latest’ from the list of available versions.
You can check the status of the download over on the ‘Image’ tab.
Setting up the container
In Docker click on the ‘Image’ tab, in the list of your containers select the ‘Linuxserver/ NZBget’ image and click on ‘Launch’
You will now see the initial setup screen, you can change the name of the container, we are not going to change the resource limitations.
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 NZBGet 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 NZBGet will store its configuration files and where to store in progress and completed downloads.
Click on Add Folder, click on the docker folder and create a new sub-folder called ‘nzbget’ select this folder and click ‘select’
This first folder will map to /config in the mount path section.
Click Add Folder again and this time select the ‘data/usenet’ folder and click Select.
In the Mount path section for this folder enter ‘/data/usenet’
Your mounts should now look like the table/screenshot below.
We are not going to be specifying specific ports for NZBGet to use as we want to keep things simple, tick the ‘Use the same network as Docker Host’
You do not need to set up anything on this tab.
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.
|PUID||The UID you obtained in the user setup guide|
|PGID||The GID you obtained in the user setup guide|
|TZ||Your timezone wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones|
Now click on apply, and you will be taken back to the initial screen, click next, and you will see a summary screen. Check your settings are correct and click on Done, the container will now start up.
Some final steps
NZBGet will now be running, you can connect to it by going to the IP address of your NAS and port 6789
The default login details are:
Username = nzbget
Password = tegbzn6789
To make sure you file ‘path’ settings are correct, go into settings and change the following value.
|Path||Path to enter|
You have now completed the setup and can begin using NZBGet.
You can use the below code saved as nzbget.yml in the ‘/docker/nzbget’ share, this will do the entire process above in one quick command via SSH. Ensure you change the variables to your own.
version: "3.8" services: linuxserver-nzbget: image: linuxserver/nzbget:latest container_name: nzbget environment: - PUID=YOURUID - PGID=YOURGID - TZ=Your/Timezone volumes: - /volume1/docker/nzbget:/config - /volume1/data/usenet:/data/usenet network_mode: host restart: unless-stopped
sudo docker-compose -f /volume1/docker/nzbget/nzbget.yml up -d
