Docker Pulls Docker Stars Build Status

Hydra is a meta search for NZB indexers and the "spiritual successor" to NZBmegasearcH. It provides easy access to a number of raw and newznab based indexers.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/hydra should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture

Tag

x86-64

amd64-latest

arm64

arm64v8-latest

armhf

arm32v7-latest

Usage

Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container from this image.

docker

docker create \
--name=hydra \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-p 5075:5075 \
-v <path to data>:/config \
-v <nzb download>:/downloads \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/hydra

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

---
version: "2"
services:
hydra:
image: linuxserver/hydra
container_name: hydra
environment:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- TZ=Europe/London
volumes:
- <path to data>:/config
- <nzb download>:/downloads
ports:
- 5075:5075
restart: unless-stopped

Parameters

Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter

Function

5075

WebUI

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

TZ=Europe/London

Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London.

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

Where hydra should store config files.

/downloads

NZB download folder.

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

$ id username
uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Application Setup

The web interface is at <your ip>:5075 , to set up indexers and connections to your nzb download applications.

Support Info

  • Shell access whilst the container is running:

    • docker exec -it hydra /bin/bash

  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime:

    • docker logs -f hydra

  • Container version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' hydra

  • Image version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' linuxserver/hydra
