TrueNAS: Radarr Manual Install

Radarr is an absolute essential tool to include in your FreeNAS setup and to have installed in a jail. Radarr is an independent fork of Sonarr, reworked for automatically downloading movies via Usenet and BitTorrent. Radarr can integrate directly into your media server setup and integrates directly with most modern download clients: uTorrent, Deluge, rTorrent, NZBGet, SABnzbd, qBittorrent, Transmission and many more. It will determine when the file has been downloaded an move it to the correct media folder to be picked up by media servers such as Plex and Emby. The project was inspired by other Usenet/BitTorrent movie downloaders such as CouchPotato. When first setting up FreeNAS it was Radarr that was causing me the most problems, largely because I had Radarr in its own jail and had problems with ensuring consistent path names in configs (qBittorent and Radarr) and ensuring that file permissions were correctly setup. This article will show you how to install Radarr within an existing jail (e.g. with your OpenVPN connection and a torrent client) in the most simple way to avoid path and file permission problems that I have previously experienced. With that, lets get on with a Radarr manual install by following the directions in the article.

This is part of my ongoing series of TrueNAS and FreeNAS setup, configuration and install articles.

  1. Appreciate the right up. Any chance this could be updated to include updating Mono or perhaps a separate right up on how to update Mono on Truenas. I’d guess it to be pretty universal for Radarr, Sonarr, etc.
