What is Radarr?
Radarr is used to search, download and organise your Movies in conjunction with your preferred Usenet or Torrent downloaders and indexers.
In this guide I will take you through the steps to get Radarr up and running in Docker.
In order for you to successfully use this guide please complete the two preceding guides
Downloading the Radarr Image
Open up Docker within DSM and navigate to the ‘Registry’ tab and search for ‘Radarr’. In the list of available containers select the one made by Linuxserver as shown below then click ‘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 Radarr’ image and click on ‘Launch’
The first screen will ask how you want to set up the Docker network, to keep things simple we will be using the Docker Host option which means we will not need to set up any additional ports. Click Next once you have selected the option.
Next you will be greeted with the General Settings screen, this is where you can start specifying some of your preferences.
You can change the name of the container to anything you like, and you may want to enable Auto Restart as this will ensure Radarr starts automatically if you reboot your NAS.
You will also notice a Configure capabilities button — don’t change anything in here!
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.
Environment (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|
Links / Execution Command
You do not need to set up anything on these tabs.
Press ‘Save’ to go back to the initial setup screen, then press ‘Next’
We will now be specifying the directories where Radarr will store its configuration files and where to find our media and downloads.
Click on ‘Add Folder’ select the ‘docker’ folder and create a new sub-folder called ‘radarr’ select this folder and click ‘select’
Repeat this process to add the /data folder.
You will now add the below settings into the ‘Mount path’ section
Click Next to move to the final screen.
You have now completed the setup of the container.
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 Radarr via the IP of your NAS followed by the port 7878
Make sure you check out page 2 of this guide that covers some common basic settings.
You can use the below code saved as radarr.yml in the ‘/docker/radarr’ 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-radarr: image: linuxserver/radarr:latest container_name: radarr environment: - PUID=YOURUID - PGID=YOURGID - TZ=Your/Timezone volumes: - /volume1/data:/data - /volume1/docker/radarr:/config network_mode: host restart: unless-stopped
sudo docker-compose -f /volume1/docker/radarr/radarr.yml up -d
