Now that we have successfully setup NZBGet, lets go on to the next step – NZBDrone! I was using SickBeard for tracking and automatically downloading TV shows, but decided to give NZBDrone a shot. I have been hesitant for a long time because it’s a .Net application, so MONO is a requirement. So far, though, I have been happy with the performance and features of NZBDrone.
Let’s get started!
Although I am not an expert in by any means, I like to run CentOS as my server OS when setting up various services at home. Since CentOS recently released version 7, I thought it would be a good idea to update my Usenet server (NZBGet, NZBDrone, CouchPotato, and Transmission) to Centos 7.
I couldn’t really find any good guides, so I borrowed from here and there and made some (many…) mistakes along the way. Fortunately for you, I kept record of what I did so you can do the same without the headache I had!
A friend shared this quote with me today, and it reminded me of the importance of getting out of our comfort zone. Although I am not religious, I can definitely identify with the message Sir Francis Drake was trying to share – that a life spent without risk is a life spent without reward.
