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
To do this we’ll need to make a directory
sudo mkdir /opt/nzbget
Download the run script to
wget with the
-P flag to determine the destination directory
wget https://nzbget.net/download/nzbget-latest-bin-linux.run -P /tmp
Make the script executable
chmod +x /tmp/nzbget-latest-bin-linux.run
Now run the script to install
sh /tmp/nzbget-latest-bin-linux.run --destdir /opt/nzbget
Now we’ll create the
systemd file so we can start NZBGet now and automatically.
sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/nzbget.service
Paste the following
[Unit] Description=NZBGet After=network.target [Service] User=root Group=root Type=forking ExecStart=/opt/nzbget/nzbget -c /opt/nzbget/nzbget.conf -D ExecStop=/opt/nzbget/nzbget -Q ExecReload=/opt/nzbget/nzbget -O KillMode=process Restart=on-failure [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
I have used root as user and group since the hard drives I am using are shared folders from a Windows PC and those folders are mounted by root.
Enable the service.
sudo systemctl enable nzbget
Now start the service
sudo systemctl start nzbget
Check it’s working
sudo systemctl status nzbget
Now open a browser and go to the local IP with 6789 appended
To login you’ll need
Username – nzbget
Password – tegbzn6789
