Installation

Radarr is available as an app on your Manage page. Select Manage Apps next to the slot you want to use Radarr on. On this page, select Add Radarr and provide your Whatbox password. After a short wait, you can click Open Radarr to open Radarr. You can also access Radarr from your Manage page.

Updates

Radarr updates are currently managed by us. Attempting to use the built-in automatic update or restart functions in Radarr will fail. If you have attempted to update Radarr and Radarr is no longer accessible, connect to your slot via SSH, run pkill -f Radarr.exe; rm ~/.config/Radarr/NzbDrone.pid and then restart Radarr and from your Manage page. The Manage page is also where you will find the WebUI for Radarr.

Common troubleshooting

If your Radarr webpage is not loading but on the Manage page shows that it is running and restarting the service does not resolve it check the logs and then kill and restart Radarr.

    cd ~/.config/Radarr/logs (change directory to the log folder)
    tail Radarr.txt (Displays last 10 lines / should see it complain that an instance is already running and then terminate itself)
    pkill -f Radarr.exe (terminate the frozen Radarr instance)

Once done with the steps above restart the Radarr instance from the Manage page.

Manually run another configuration

These instructions will create and run another configuration of Radarr alongside your existing configuration. You will need to manually access and manage additional configurations of Radarr, including starting them if your server is ever rebooted.

  1. Make a second Radarr configuration directory

    mkdir ~/.config/Radarr2
    
  2. Make a second Radarr configuration file

    touch ~/.config/Radarr2/config.xml
    
  3. Open the configuration file in nano

    nano ~/.config/Radarr2/config.xml
    
  4. Copy the contents of the box below into the ~/.config/Radarr2/config.xml file, replacing any other configuration in the file

    <Config>
    <Port>17946</Port>
    <UrlBase></UrlBase>
    <BindAddress>*</BindAddress>
    <SslPort>18973</SslPort>
    <EnableSsl>False</EnableSsl>
    <ApiKey></ApiKey>
    <AuthenticationMethod>None</AuthenticationMethod>
    <LogLevel>Info</LogLevel>
    <Branch>develop</Branch>
    <LaunchBrowser>False</LaunchBrowser>
    <UpdateAutomatically>False</UpdateAutomatically>
    </Config>
    
  5. Save changes by pressing ctrl+x, y and then enter.

  6. Start Radarr in a screen session running in the background

    screen -dmS Radarr2 mono --debug /usr/share/radarr/Radarr.exe -data=/home/user/.config/Radarr2 -c libcurl
    

Radarr will be accessible at http://server.whatbox.ca:17946 - Enable Authentication in Radarr's Settings -> General tab, using either authentication method with a strong username and password.

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 /usr/share/radarr/Radarr.exe -c libcurl" > /dev/null
     then
         echo "Radarr is running."
     else 
         echo "Radarr is not running, starting Radarr"
         mono /usr/share/radarr/Radarr.exe -c libcurl
     fi
     exit
    
  3. Save the file with Ctrl+x and the "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 and the "y" and Enter to accept overwriting.
