My previous post set you up with installing Sonarr on Unraid but that was as far as we got. In this post I want to show you how to set up Jackett and connect to Sonarr so you can connect to torrent trackers that are not oficially suported by Sonarr. This also works for Radarr and has an extremely similar set. First thing first, lets install the Jackett Docker container. As always I will be using Linuxserver.
Installing Sonarr couldn’t be any easier when installing using Docker on and Unraid server. Once you have the Community Applications plugin installed you are just a few clicks away from automating your TV show consumption. Community Applications Plugin First thing first. You need to install the Community Applications plugin. You can find a guide on how to do that HERE Shares Secondly you need to set up your shares. Shares are where Sonarr will be accessing your downloads and putting the TV shows on your Unraid server.
The Unraid Community Applications plugin is a plugin that gives you access to a wide range of useful plugins and containers all in one place. The Community Applications plugins is great for quick and easy install of other plugins, containers and applications. Installation Copy the following LINK and paste it into the Plugins > Install Plugin page of your Unraid install and then press the Install button. This will now add an “APPS” tab where you can access hundreds of community applications.
I noticed that while typing out my previous post that Firefox was not automatically spell checking as I was typing. Coming from Chrome which does this automatically I thought this was something that should work out of the box. It looks like you need to have a dictionary installed, language pack installed and the option to check spelling ticked. Make sure you have spell checking enabled. Menu > Options > search for spell check.
I have been planning for a long time to build a server that is capable of running multiple Docker containers, Plex transcoding and a few Virtual Machines. For the past couple of years I have had a local Xpenology server that runs a version of Synology DSM without the need for Synology hardware. The hardware running this is quite old. DDR2 RAM and a motherboard that only has 2 SATA ports.
