Docker Pulls Docker Stars Build Status

Nzbget is a usenet downloader, written in C++ and designed with performance in mind to achieve maximum download speed by using very little system resources.

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/nzbget 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

Version Tags

This image provides various versions that are available via tags. latest tag usually provides the latest stable version. Others are considered under development and caution must be exercised when using them.

Usage

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

docker

docker create \
--name=nzbget \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-p 6789:6789 \
-v <path to data>:/config \
-v <path/to/downloads>:/downloads \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/nzbget

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

---
version: "2"
services:
nzbget:
image: linuxserver/nzbget
container_name: nzbget
environment:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- TZ=Europe/London
volumes:
- <path to data>:/config
- <path/to/downloads>:/downloads
ports:
- 6789:6789
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

6789

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

NZBGet App data.

/downloads

Location of downloads on disk.

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

Webui can be found at <your-ip>:6789 and the default login details (change ASAP) are

login:nzbget, password:tegbzn6789

To allow scheduling, from the webui set the time correction value in settings/logging.

To change umask settings.

scroll to bottom, set umask like this (example shown for unraid)

You can add an additional mount point for intermediate unpacking folder with:-

-v </path/to/intermedia_unpacking_folder>:/intermediate

for example, and changing the setting for InterDir in the PATHS tab of settings to /intermediate
