How to Install NZBHydra on Your Synology NAS

NZBHydra 2 is a meta search for newznab indexers and torznab trackers. It provides easy access to newznab indexers and many torznab trackers via Jackett. You can search all your indexers and trackers from one place and use it as an indexer source for tools like Sonarr, Radarr, Lidarr or CouchPotato. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install NZBHydra 2 on your Synology NAS using Docker.

-e TZ=Europe/Bucharest \
-v /volume1/docker/nzbhydra2:/config \
-v /volume1/web/downloads:/downloads \
--restart always \
