Hey all, sorry for the lack of updates in a while but life took over.

This article is a combination of a bunch of mini texts i had on my system and after seeing more and more streaming services popping up it was time to combine the all and publish it.

At some point i might add pictures to help walk you through it but in all reality it is decently straight forward.

Also: Big shout out to L34N for helping test and edit this article. It was a ton of work but it reads better and has way less errors now.

Enjoy!



Basics

This article walks you through how to install and configure the following services:
– sabnzbd
– NZBHydra2 (v 2.8.0)
– Lidarr (v .0.7.1.1381)
– Sonarr
– Radarr (v .0.2.0.1358
– LazyLibrarian
– Plex Media Server
– Tautulli

This was done on a fresh Ubuntu 18.04 install with an ip of 192.168.100.82

For storage, these are the paths i am using with a brief explanation:
– /storage/books : this will be used by LazyLibrarian after completed download in SABnzbd
– /storage/downloads
– /storage/downloads/complete
– /storage/downloads/incomplete
: these will be used by SABnzbd as a temporary hold for completed and incomplete downloads before the respective services moves them to their permanent storage locations
– /storage/movies : this will be used by Radarr after completed download in SABnzbd
– /storage/music : this will be used by Lidarr after completed download in SABnzbd
– /storage/tv : this will be used by Sonarr after completed download in SABnzbd

If these are the paths that you want to use then add them with the command below. If they are not then you should add your storage now.
We should set these up by running these commands :

sudo mkdir -p /storage/books /storage/downloads /storage/movies /storage/music /storage/tv
sudo mkdir -p /storage/downloads/complete /storage/downloads/incomplete

For Usenet/newsgroup service :
Newsdemon (referral)

For Usenet/newsgroup indexing :
NZBfinder
**** The free tier will cap you at a small amount of searches per day. Be warned. ****

If you need help on these services start here:
SABnzbd
NZBHydra2
Lidarr
Sonarr
Radarr
LazyLibrarian
Plex
Tautulli

This article is Usenet / NZB based. For torrent support google is your friend.


Installing sabnzbd

Run these commands :

sudo addgroup sabnzbd
sudo adduser --system sabnzbd --ingroup sabnzbd
sudo getent group downloads || sudo groupadd downloads
sudo usermod -a -G downloads sabnzbd
sudo apt install software-properties-common unzip
sudo add-apt-repository multiverse
sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo add-apt-repository multiverse
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jcfp/nobetas
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jcfp/sab-addons
sudo apt update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt install sabnzbdplus python-sabyenc par2-tbb

Now we edit /etc/default/sabnzbdplus and set the required user to the user created above: USER=sabnzbd
also change “HOST=” to that machines ip (for sake of this article we will use 192.168.100.82):
HOST=192.168.100.82
set “PORT=” to 8080:
PORT=8080

Now load and start the daemon :

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl start sabnzbdplus.service

Now test by going to http://192.168.100.82:8080


Configuring sabnzbd

First, make sure that the following paths are owned by sabnzbd:sabnzbd :

sudo chown -R sabnzbd:downloads /storage/downloads/incomplete
sudo chown -R sabnzbd:downloads /storage/downloads/complete

Open your browser to http://192.168.100.82:8080

This will open a quick start wizard. follow it entering this info for these windows :
– Server Details :
Input the info given to you from Newsdemon
– Completed Download Folder :
/storage/downloads/complete
– Temporary Download Folder :
/storage/downloads/incomplete

Now click the gear on the right
We are now going to add the categories by selecting the line that has the “+ Add” icon on the right:
for tv:

under Category add "tv"
under Folder/Path add "tv"
click "+Add"

for movies:

under Category add "movies"
under Folder/Path add "movies"
click "+Add"

for books:

under Category add "books"
under Folder/Path add "books"
click "+Add"

for music:

under Category add "music"
under Folder/Path add "music"
click "+Add"

for misc audio:

under Category add "audio"
under Folder/Path add "audio"
click "+Add"

Now one final setting to change
We now have to set permission to the temporary folder (the complete and incomplete paths) so that the other applications can pull files from them:

Click "Folders" on the top
under "User Folders" set "Permissions for completed downloads" to 777
Now click "Save Changes" on the bottom

At this point you have a standard SABnzbd install.

Lidarr        @ http://192.168.100.82:8686
Sonarr        @ http://192.168.100.82:8989
Radarr        @ http://192.168.100.82:7878
LazyLibrarian @ http://192.168.100.82:5299
