My previous guide for Overseerr involved the use of Task Scheduler. Today I’m offering a recommended and excellent alternative for installing the latest Overseerr version via Portainer. Overseerr is a request management and media discovery tool built to work with your existing Plex ecosystem. It’s mandatory to have Plex installed on your Synology NAS in order to use Overseerr. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Overseerr on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.
Overseerr v1.33.2 release.This guide works perfectly with the latest
Install Portainer using my step by step guide. If you already have Portainer installed on your Synology NAS, skip this STEP. Attention: Make sure you have installed the latest Portainer version.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it overseerr. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Note: Be careful to enter only lowercase, not uppercase letters.
Log into Portainer using your username and password. On the left sidebar in Portainer, click on Stacks then + Add stack. Follow the instructions in the image below.
In the Name field type in overseerr. Follow the instructions in the image below.
version: "3.9" services: overseerr: image: ghcr.io/linuxserver/overseerr container_name: Overseerr hostname: overseerr network_mode: host mem_limit: 12g cpu_shares: 2048 security_opt: - no-new-privileges:true - seccomp:unconfined healthcheck: test: curl -f http://localhost:5055/ || exit 1 volumes: - /volume1/docker/overseerr:/config:rw environment: TZ: Europe/Bucharest PUID: 1026 PGID: 100 restart: on-failure:5
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Web editor area below, change the value for TZ. (Select your current Time Zone from this list.)
Note: Before you paste the code above in the Web editor 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.) 1026 is my personal PUID value and 100 is my personal PGID value. You have to type in your own values.
Scroll down on the page until you see a button named Deploy the stack. Click on it. Follow the instructions in the image below. The installation process can take up to a few minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection.
If everything goes right, you will see the following message at the top right of your screen: “Success Stack successfully deployed“.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂
The installation process can take up to a few seconds/minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection. Now open your browser and type in http://Synology-ip-address:5055 Click Sign in to sign in with your Plex Account. Follow the instructions in the image below.
