Installing Sonarr

Installing Sonarr can be really easy!

Sonarr is a PVR for Usenet and BitTorrent users. It can monitor multiple RSS feeds for new episodes of your favorite shows and will grab, sort and rename them. It can also be configured to automatically upgrade the quality of files already downloaded when a better quality format becomes available.

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 sonarr

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

docker run --rm \
    --name sonarr \
    -p 8989:8989 \
    -e PUID=1000 \
    -e PGID=1000 \
    -e UMASK=002 \
    -e TZ="America/Denver" \
    -v /srv/sonarr:/config \

That's it! Head over to http://ipaddress:8989 and continue with the setup!
