Sabnzbd upgrade in docker on Synology NAS (Docker)

Post by spectrum25 »

Hi there, wondering if someone can help... I have Sabnzbd running in a docker container on my Synology NAS - it's a DS718+ running DSM7 and my Sabnzbd version is 3.1.1.

The interface is showing an update available to 3.4.0, are there any step by step instructions available anywhere to do the upgrade and save settings, config, etc? I can see the new container available for download in the docker registry but not sure of the easiest way to upgrade... perhaps just to setup a new container and copy over the settings file so it retains all my information?

I'm used to running pretty seamless updates in Windows but am struggling with the process since I've got it running on the NAS. Any help would be most appreciated.

It's essential that you're using Docker, so I've put that in the title.

The docker upgrade process should just update the docker container, and keep your settings ... those settings are outside the docker container.

Ok it looks like I've went with the defaults, and as far as I can tell the config files seem to be located inside the container...

When I ssh into the NAS it shows the sabnzbd.ini file under volume1/docker/sabnzbd, does this mean that if I upgrade the container in docker it will blow away the settings I have?

Sorry if this is obvious... I'm new to using this and don't want to upgrade losing what I already have set up.

Anyone any further information to help... I guess worst case I just upgrade and lose all the settings and re-enter them. Would copying the docker/sabnzbd folder off the nas and restoring it in the new container do the trick... it contains the admin folder, logs, as well as the sabnzbd.ini in the root.

I have nothing else to say than viewtopic.php?p=125735#p125735

Well, if you say so, my statement is not true. And if you're correct, the whole point of docker is gone. So make up your mind.

Indeed. So you have to determine yourself: it is worth the risk? ;)

By making the step, you'll find out how/if it works.
