"Navidrome is a self-hosted, open source music server and streamer." Navidrome runs on its own port; 18445 has been automatically generated for you, but you may choose another 5 digit port between 10000 and 32767.


  1. Connect to your slot through SSH

  2. Download the latest Linux x86_64 release

     wget https://github.com/navidrome/navidrome/releases/download/v0.49.3/navidrome_0.49.3_Linux_x86_64.tar.gz
  3. Make a directory for Navidrome

     mkdir -p ~/navidrome
  4. Extract the latest release archive

     tar zxvf navidrome_*.tar.gz -C ~/navidrome
  5. Create a configuration file and fill with the following. nano ~/navidrome/navidrome.toml


    DataFolder = '/home/user/navidrome'
    MusicFolder = '/home/user/files' # change this as needed
    LogLevel = 'INFO'
    Port = '18445'
    Address = ''

Additional configuration file parameters can be found here.

  1. Start Navidrome in a background screen. You can change the music directory by changing ~/files to a different directory. Navidrome will scan all files and subdirectories in the specific directory.

     screen -dmS navidrome ~/navidrome/navidrome -c ~/navidrome/navidrome.toml
  2. Access Navidrome at http://server.whatbox.ca:18445 and create a new administrator account. You will use this account to log in and use Navidrome.

  3. (Optional) Remove unneeded data

     rm navidrome_*.gz
