Sonarr (formerly NZBdrone) is a PVR for usenet and bittorrent users. It can monitor multiple RSS feeds for new episodes of your favorite shows and will grab, sort and rename them. It can also be configured to automatically upgrade the quality of files already downloaded when a better quality format becomes available.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/sonarr should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture Tag
x86-64 amd64-latest
arm64 arm64v8-latest
armhf arm32v7-latest

Version Tags

This image provides various versions that are available via tags. latest tag usually provides the latest stable version. Others are considered under development and caution must be exercised when using them.

Tag Description
latest Stable releases from Sonarr (currently v2)
develop Development releases from Sonarr (currently v2)
preview Preview releases from Sonarr (currently v3)
5.14 Stable Sonarr releases, but run on Mono 5.14

Usage

Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container.

docker

docker create \
  --name=sonarr \
  -e PUID=1000 \
  -e PGID=1000 \
  -e TZ=Europe/London \
  -e UMASK_SET=022 `#optional` \
  -p 8989:8989 \
  -v /path/to/data:/config \
  -v /path/to/tvseries:/tv \
  -v /path/to/downloadclient-downloads:/downloads \
  --restart unless-stopped \
  linuxserver/sonarr

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

---
version: "2.1"
services:
  sonarr:
    image: linuxserver/sonarr
    container_name: sonarr
    environment:
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - TZ=Europe/London
      - UMASK_SET=022 #optional
    volumes:
      - /path/to/data:/config
      - /path/to/tvseries:/tv
      - /path/to/downloadclient-downloads:/downloads
    ports:
      - 8989:8989
    restart: unless-stopped

Parameters

Container images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Parameter Function
-p 8989 The port for the Sonarr webinterface
-e PUID=1000 for UserID - see below for explanation
-e PGID=1000 for GroupID - see below for explanation
-e TZ=Europe/London Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London, this is required for Sonarr
-e UMASK_SET=022 control permissions of files and directories created by Sonarr
-v /config Database and sonarr configs
-v /tv Location of TV library on disk (See note in Application setup)
-v /downloads Location of download managers output directory (See note in Application setup)

Environment variables from files (Docker secrets)

You can set any environment variable from a file by using a special prepend FILE__.

As an example:

-e FILE__PASSWORD=/run/secrets/mysecretpassword

Will set the environment variable PASSWORD based on the contents of the /run/secrets/mysecretpassword file.

Umask for running applications

For all of our images we provide the ability to override the default umask settings for services started within the containers using the optional -e UMASK=022 setting. Keep in mind umask is not chmod it subtracts from permissions based on it's value it does not add. Please read up here before asking for support.

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags) permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

  $ id username
    uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

 

Application Setup

Access the webui at <your-ip>:8989, for more information check out Sonarr.

Special Note: Following our current folder structure will result in an inability to hardlink from your downloads to your TV folder because they are on seperate volumes. To support hardlinking, simply ensure that the TV and downloads data are on a single volume. For example, if you have /mnt/storage/TV and /mnt/storage/downloads/completed/TV, you would want something like /mnt/storage:/media for your volume. Then you can hardlink from /media/downloads/completed to /media/TV.

Another item to keep in mind, is that within sonarr itself, you should then map your torrent client folder to your sonarr folder: Settings -> Download Client -> advanced -> remote path mappings. I input the host of my download client (matches the download client defined) remote path is /downloads/TV (relative to the internal container path) and local path is /media/downloads/completed/TV, assuming you have folders to seperate your downloaded data types.

Docker Mods

Docker Mods

We publish various Docker Mods to enable additional functionality within the containers. The list of Mods available for this image (if any) can be accessed via the dynamic badge above.

Support Info

  • Shell access whilst the container is running: docker exec -it sonarr /bin/bash
  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime: docker logs -f sonarr
  • container version number
    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' sonarr
  • image version number
    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' linuxserver/sonarr

Updating Info

Most of our images are static, versioned, and require an image update and container recreation to update the app inside. With some exceptions (ie. nextcloud, plex), we do not recommend or support updating apps inside the container. Please consult the Application Setup section above to see if it is recommended for the image.

Below are the instructions for updating containers:

Via Docker Run/Create

  • Update the image: docker pull linuxserver/sonarr
  • Stop the running container: docker stop sonarr
  • Delete the container: docker rm sonarr
  • Recreate a new container with the same docker create parameters as instructed above (if mapped correctly to a host folder, your /config folder and settings will be preserved)
  • Start the new container: docker start sonarr
  • You can also remove the old dangling images: docker image prune

Via Docker Compose

  • Update all images: docker-compose pull
    • or update a single image: docker-compose pull sonarr
  • Let compose update all containers as necessary: docker-compose up -d
    • or update a single container: docker-compose up -d sonarr
  • You can also remove the old dangling images: docker image prune

Via Watchtower auto-updater (especially useful if you don't remember the original parameters)

  • Pull the latest image at its tag and replace it with the same env variables in one run:
    docker run --rm \
    -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
    containrrr/watchtower \
    --run-once sonarr
    

Note: We do not endorse the use of Watchtower as a solution to automated updates of existing Docker containers. In fact we generally discourage automated updates. However, this is a useful tool for one-time manual updates of containers where you have forgotten the original parameters. In the long term, we highly recommend using Docker Compose.

  • You can also remove the old dangling images: docker image prune

Building locally

If you want to make local modifications to these images for development purposes or just to customize the logic:

git clone https://github.com/linuxserver/docker-sonarr.git
cd docker-sonarr
docker build \
  --no-cache \
  --pull \
  -t linuxserver/sonarr:latest .

The ARM variants can be built on x86_64 hardware using multiarch/qemu-user-static

docker run --rm --privileged multiarch/qemu-user-static:register --reset

Once registered you can define the dockerfile to use with -f Dockerfile.aarch64.
