NZBGet Pi

NZBGet is the must have software if you are into the usenet databases, basically this will help you searching the files that you requested in Sonarr, Radarr or any other data management tool that you are using for your server, I ended up using NZBGet because it requires less resources than Sabnzbd for my Raspberry PI.

The interface is clean and has plugins that you can set up, such as renaming (if you need help renaming you can also do it with Sonarr or Radarr), detecting files extensions that you dont need for example “.iso”, they dont have the feature to auto comment like sabzbd but usenet providers dont like that feature anyways.

First SSH into Pi

Now we’ll download the and install the NZBGet to /opt.
To do this we’ll need to make a directory

sudo mkdir /opt/nzbget

Download the run script to /tmp using wget with the -P flag to determine the destination directory

Samba (Linux)

With no introduction here is samba install

sudo apt-get install samba samba-common-bin smbclient

Create your shared directory

We’re going to create a dedicated shared directory. You can put it anywhere, but ours will be at the top level of the root file system.

sudo mkdir -m 1777 /share

Transmission (deb)

Install transmission

sudo apt-get install transmission-cli transmission-common transmission-daemon

Configure

transmission-daemon will start automatically each time you start your server, with the settings defined in /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/settings.json

Make sure the Transmission daemon is not running when changing the config file otherwise your changes will be over written.

sudo systemctl stop transmission-daemon

Now we need to change a few settings.

sudo nano /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/settings.json

Ubuntu SSH

You may often have to access remote servers to administer, manage, and troubleshoot and there are several ways to do this. You may use telnet to login to remote servers; FTP allows transferring files between different servers. However, these programs are not secure enough for connecting to critical servers. SSH, a secure shell is a cryptographic network protocol using which you can securely access network services over an unsecured network. SSH allows you to access servers through Terminal and various command line functions. It is helpful if you want to access and administer a server remotely using a secure way.

In this article, I am going to describe how you can remotely manage a Linux server with SSH.

For this article, I am using the following machines:

Home Server Project part 1

Nowadays in this new era apartments are shrinking and we do not have enough space for a TV stand with DVD storage or maybe a shelf for DVDs, just as our parents did, so now we Millenials are having a different approach to storage since we adapt to changes and some of us prefer to own home server.

Server is not a big thing like it used to be now there are small servers with a raspberry pi or an old computer to turn them in a NAS. Having your own home server will allow you to share that media not only in LAN also stream content when you are at work or maybe in a different country, totally up to you.

Home Servers offer a bunch of different options and it is really convenient all depends on you and the needs you want to fulfill, of course, it needs a learning curve but the results will exceed expectations and here I will explain how to properly set up a home server for streaming content.
