Warning

This is not a complete recipe - it's a component of the AutoPirate "uber-recipe", but has been split into its own page to reduce complexity.

SABnzbd

Introduction

SABnzbd is the workhorse of the stack. It takes .nzb files as input (manually or from other autopirate stack tools), then connects to your chosen Usenet provider, downloads all the individual binaries referenced by the .nzb, and then tests/repairs/combines/uncompresses them all into the final result - media files.

Sponsored Project

SABnzbd is one of my sponsored projects - a project I financially support on a regular basis because of its utility to me. It's not sexy, but it's consistent and reliable, and I enjoy the fruits of its labor near-daily.

Inclusion into AutoPirate

To include SABnzbd in your AutoPirate stack (The only reason you wouldn't use SABnzbd, would be if you were using NZBGet instead), include the following in your autopirate.yml stack definition file:

Tip

I share (with my patreon patrons) a private "premix" git repository, which includes necessary docker-compose and env files for all published recipes. This means that patrons can launch any recipe with just a git pull and a docker stack deploy 👍

Important Note re hostname validation

(Updated 10 June 2018) : In SABnzbd 2.3.3, hostname verification was added as a mandatory check. SABnzbd will refuse inbound connections which weren't addressed to its own (initially, autodetected) hostname. This presents a problem within Docker Swarm, where container hostnames are random and disposable.

You'll need to edit sabnzbd.ini (only created after your first launch), and replace the value in host_whitelist configuration (it's comma-separated) with the name of your service within the swarm definition, as well as your FQDN as accessed via traefik.

For example, mine simply reads host_whitelist = sabnzbd.funkypenguin.co.nz, sabnzbd

Assemble more tools..

Continue through the list of tools below, adding whichever tools your want to use, and finishing with the end section:

Chef's Notes 📓

  1. In many cases, tools will integrate with each other. I.e., Radarr needs to talk to SABnzbd and NZBHydra, Ombi needs to talk to Radarr, etc. Since each tool runs within the stack under its own name, just refer to each tool by name (i.e. "radarr"), and docker swarm will resolve the name to the appropriate container. You can identify the tool-specific port by looking at the docker-compose service definition.
