[PACKAGE] NZBGet for WD My Cloud

About time to fill up that WD app store… Here’s NZBGet, the most efficient usenet downloader.
More info about NZBGet on the official website.

Downloads: www.wdcommunity.com
Source: https://github.com/WDCommunity/wdpksrc/tree/master/wdpk/nzbget

This installer fetches the latest stable version of NZBGet (v20 now) and configures it to use the Public share. Feel free to modify it to another share.

Other features:

  • configure, enable/disable and uninstall the app from the WD web interface.
  • nzbget daemon starts on machine reboot
  • restore settings on upgrade

Login: nzbget
Pw: tegbzn6789

Feel free to change this in settings - security

I also strongly recommend to get yourself a matching browser plugin
Chrome - Firefox

You are awesome for helping. I try to install this manually trough “apps” but it says it cannot install “this app”.

Which device are you using? I only tested on a PR4100… It could be I need to make separate packages for PR2100… If so, let me know!

Ha maybe thats it. Im using PR2100.

I posted links for all PR and DL devices in the download link.

Thanks! Ive got it installed. Though, when i press configure; a new window pop up, but it cannot connect to nzbget

I added the default login / password to the install instructions :slight_smile:

But where do i fill these in? :stuck_out_tongue:

hmmm odd. I’ll have a look in incognito mode where this is going wrong.

In Firefox and Chrome it seems to work fine… which browser do you use?
Did you disable javascript?
Otherwise just add :6789 to the url…

Example if your WD NAS web interface is at, go to

ive reinstalled. I got the login screen now!

Cool beans. I’ll try to iron out whatever went wrong there.

cool. so the only thing i need to change is settings -> paths -> “MainDir” into; /mnt/HD/HD_a2/P2P/nzbget

Yes, that’s because samba doesn’t map the Nas_Prog directory.
Feel free to use any other share… e.g if you only have a Multimedia share


Happy that downloading is working. but,mmm cant figure out how to get the download folder to “Public”. using mac. Cant get to the upper folders…

In the WD web UI, in the shares tab, click on the Public share.
For me, it’s located on Volume 1.

You may have to enable SSH and explore your /mnt directory to find your public share.
For me it’s just in /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Public …
You could use cyberduck to get the correct path.

I give up for today. For me its also located on vol1. Started up ssh, logged in, but /mnt is permission denied. Installed Cyberduck but no luck there.

Anyway thanks alot! Got it running very stable, now only the last part for changing into right download path & categories…

ps: is it also possible to make a sabnzbd app? :wink:

I’m exploring some docker setup / teardown scripts… sabnzbd should be easy when it’s done. Any software to download linux iso’s right?

Btw, use SFTP protocol in cyberduck and login as root.
