Beginners Guide For Setting Up NzbDrone [Work In Progress]


Below is a link to a hopefully simple to follow guide for those new to NzbDrone and need a little help whilst these forums can be very helpful sometimes it helps if you have certain steps broken down a bit and also screenshots can help so i put this together not long ago after being requested by @johngcp i have got some good feedback from him which i plan to implement ASAP

As mentioned in the title this is a Work In Progress so if there is something missing or something you may think should be added please let me know and as soon as i get some spare time i will try and edit it to reflect these.

I decided to make this an announcement as it was buried several pages back in a post that did not identify it clearly so hopefully this way it will be easier to find.

All the best, Welcome to the NzbDrone Community and Good luck! :slight_smile:

Link isn’t working.


Yeah, it looks like the file was taken down. If You’re interested in documenting this procedure, I can absolutely help as I took extensive notes while doing this on a Debian machine for the first time.

Otherwise, lets delete this post.
