Installing Prowlarr

Installing Prowlarr can be really easy!

Prowlarr is an indexer manager/proxy built on the popular *arr application to integrate with your various PVR apps. Prowlarr supports management of both Torrent Trackers and Usenet Indexers. It integrates seamlessly with Lidarr, Mylar3, Radarr, Readarr, and Sonarr offering complete management of your indexers with no per app Indexer setup required.

First; our install location is going to be on Ubuntu 20.04 in the /srv directory. If you do not already have Docker installed, follow my guide here.

Open up an SSH Session and enter in the following:

chmod -R 777 /srv
cd /srv
mkdir prowlarr

Then you can run the following command to install Prowlarr (Make sure to change the Time Zone).

docker run --rm \
    --name prowlarr \
    -p 9696:9696 \
    -e PUID=1000 \
    -e PGID=1000 \
    -e UMASK=002 \
    -e TZ="America/Denver" \
    -v /srv/prowlarr:/config \

Temporarily, you will need to use the :nightly or :develop tags with docker images, as there is no master branch.

That's it! Head over to http://ipaddress:9696 and continue with the setup!
