Mylar within Dockstarter docker tips and solutions

Post by Gollie » Sat Nov 10, 2018 4:50 pm

Hiya - i'm moving to DockStarter on Ubuntu to handle all my Usenet stuff.
I've had a number of headaches that i solved by searching within this forum and by poking around logs, asking on discord etc.
I want to summarise them in this post, as a resource for anyone else migrating to DockStarter
I'm using this as a rough notepad to get all my steps together in preparation for a Wiki entry - i hope this helps anyone else setting up Mylar with docker and DockSTARTer

I've set up nzbget, sonarr (for TV), Radarr (for movies), Mylarr and nzbhydra (indexer)

Each app accesses the other by using the container name as a hostname.
So instead of putting in each app settings, you use http://nzbget:6789 http://hydra2:5076 etc. etc.

I was getting zero results from Experimental Search, but better results from Nzbhydra2 indexing
Sonarr and Radarr access the nzbhydra2 container by using http://hydra2:5076 with no problems.

Mylarr does not. Instead it gives the error in the logs

Code: Select all

2018-11-10 16:09:10	WARNING	Testing failed to NH2 [HOST:http://hydra2:5076/][SSL:True]
The corresponding nzbhydra log entry

Code: Select all

 ExternalApi 	Received API call with wrong API key 
Despite nzbhydra2 not requiring an API key, mylarr was unhappy until API was setup inside NZBHydra2 (Config - Main - security)
Corresponding Mylar Config Screenshot

I was previously using an standalone non-docker mylar install.
When i backed up and restored the database, all the pathnames were changed

See - you map the path within Dockstarter - and this appears as a different folder within the mylar container
sudo ds
Configuration, Set Global Variables
Change the path for MEDIADIR_COMICS= /home/Gollie/Documents/comic (the original location)

DockSTARTer mounts the above folder inside the Mylarr image as /comics

So follow this thread to remap all comic folder locations from /home/Gollie/Documents/comics to /comics by editing the /home/Gollie/.docker/config/mylar/mylar/config.ini file. ... 29b9f27ad7

More to come as i fix the issues found

Also using DS - I had to reinstall everything recently as my main nvme drive was failing.

Now I'm trying to reconfigure everything and I can't get the newznab section to work w/ nzbhydra2. In fact when I test it - I get nothing - not even a failure msg. There also doesn't seem to be anything in the logs. However when I set up the torznab - it works fine.

Here's what the logs show when I tested torznab and then newznab:

2020-06-27 07:17:41 INFO Successfully tested nzbhydra [http://nzbhydra2:5076/torznab] - valid api response received
2020-06-27 07:17:41 INFO Connected - Status code returned: 200
