I currently run sabnzbd on a Windows Home Server 2011 frankenbuild.


The server is becoming a bit flaky, and I'm thinking of getting a NAS to take over some of its roles.


Is it possible to run sabnzbd on a NAS device? And how do you do it?


PS I have googled it, and some say you can, but when I go to the websites of Synology and QNAP, there is no mention of it.

Life is too short to remove USB safely.

Hmm you sure?


Synology and Qnap mentioned, which instructions.  Unlikely for them to be official packages, given the nature of what you're actually trying to do....

I had sabnzbd running on a synology 412+ for several years without issue. It was installed from the synocommunity repo in the link that davidcole supplied above. 


It was uninstalled when after trying to get to the bottom of hibernation issues ( wasn't due to sabnzbd) and never reinstalled due to a lack of need.




Edit: The synology download station will handle nzb downloads

Yes, thats the link I found.


I meant that neither QNAP or Synology mention it as application.


I gather its unsupported then?

It's a 3rd party addon maintained by synocommunity. As it's not an official synology addon, you won't get any help on the official synology forums in the unlikely event something goes wrong.


I'm not aware of any security issues with synocommunity.

kiwifidget: ... I gather its unsupported then?


I wouldn't call it 'unsupported'. More like 'not available in the official store'. As davidcole mentioned: "Unlikely for them to be official packages, given the nature of what you're actually trying to do..".i.e. what Usenet is used for these days.


The scenario is similar to Android and the Google Play Store or Linux distributions and their repo's. You can still side-load the application and it will be supported by the original software vendor. I had to manually download the package for UrBackup and install it on my NAS. It works and UrBackup itself is still supported by the original vendor.

running sab/mono/sonarr/radarr/sickwhatever  etc on a nas is pretty common, i would suggest a synology over a qnap, try to avoid a crappy processor tho
