Usage

Your Radarr web interface will be accessible at http://server.whatbox.ca:43581

It is strongly recommended to setup authentication on your Radarr instance. You can do this in Radarr's web interface under the Settings > General > Security options. You should not use your slot password here because the web interface does not use SSL.

You can attach to your Radarr screen session to monitor its output using screen -r radarr, and detach from it again by pressing ctrl+a and then d.

Automatically Restart

mono-based applications are inherently unstable and prone to crashing. Below are steps to take to have your Radarr instance automatically restart if it crashes, or if the server is rebooted.

  1. Make a file to be used for the script. touch ~/radarr_restart.cron

  2. Edit the file and enter the text below. nano -w ~/radarr_restart.cron

    #!/bin/bash
    if pgrep -fx "mono --debug /home/user/Radarr/Radarr.exe -c libcurl" > /dev/null
    then
        echo "Radarr is running."
    else 
        echo "Radarr is not running, starting Radarr"
        screen -dmS radarr mono --debug /home/user/Radarr/Radarr.exe -c libcurl
    fi
    exit
    
  3. Save the file with Ctrl+x, y and Enter to accept overwriting.

  4. Make the script executable. chmod +x ~/radarr_restart.cron

  5. Open your crontab. EDITOR=nano crontab -e

  6. Enter the following text

    @reboot /home/user/radarr_restart.cron >/dev/null 2>&1
    */5 * * * * /home/user/radarr_restart.cron >/dev/null 2>&1
    
  7. Save the crontab with Ctrl+x, y and Enter to accept overwriting.
