How to Install SABnzbd on Your Synology NAS

How to Install SABnzbd on Your Synology NAS

SABnzbd is a multi-platform binary downloader. The program works in the background and simplifies the downloading verifying and extracting of files from Usenet. SABnzbd uses NZB files (similar to . torrent files, but for Usenet), instead of browsing Usenet directly. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install SABnzbd on your Synology NAS using Docker.

-e PUID=1026 \
-e PGID=100 \
-e TZ=Europe/Bucharest \
-v /volume1/docker/sabnzbd:/config \
-v /volume1/web/downloads:/downloads \
-v /volume1/web/incompletedownloads:/incomplete-downloads \
--restart always \
ghcr.io/linuxserver/sabnzbd

Note: Before you paste the code above in the Run command area below, change the value numbers for PUID and PGID with your own values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.)

Note: in the code above after -v /volume1/docker/sabnzbd:/config \ you have to add your personal path to downloads. For example I have used my personal downloads path folder -v /volume1/web/downloads:/downloads\ Change it according to your preferences. -v /path/toyour/downloads:/downloads  \
Note
: in the code above after -v /volume1/web/downloads:/downloads \ you have to add your personal path to incomplete downloads. For example I have used my personal incomplete downloads path folder -v /volume1/web/incompletedownloads:/incomplete-downloads \ Change it according to your preferences. -v /path/toyour/incompletedownloads:/downloads  \
