Usenet in Docker
Create a usenet downloader setup easily with the power of Docker. All built on Alpine.
- Media storage/mounting
You probably want Docker Compose to boot these containers
nzbget: image: benjick/nzbget ports: - "6789:6789" volumes: - ./config:/usr/local/etc - ./media:/volumes/media sonarr: image: benjick/sonarr links: - nzbget ports: - "8989:8989" volumes: - ./config/sonarr:/volumes/config/sonarr couchpotato: image: benjick/couchpotato links: - nzbget ports: - "5050:5050" volumes: - ./config/couchpotato:/root/.couchpotato
If you don't need
couchpotato, just remove it's section from the compose-file. When you point for example sonarr to a downloader (nzbget) you put nzbget:6789 instead of localhost:6789 or whatever you usually do.
Then just run
docker-compose up -d to start the containers. To shut them down just do
docker-compose stop (or
kill if you're in a hurry).
A folder named
config will be created and will contain all databases etc for the applications. This is the folder you want to backup to keep your settings etc. It should be all you need to backup, settings-wise.
In this example we are creating a folder called
./media:/volumes/media) which can be accessed inside the application with
/volumes/media. If you want more mountpoints you can just do something like this:
volumes: - ./media:/volumes/media/tv - /some/other/dir:/volumes/media/movies
and then use
/volumes/media/movies instead of just
Note: If you do this, don't save any files to /volumes/media because that will be inside the container, not on your drive, which means if you somehow destroy the container the data might get lost.
