Prowlarr is a indexer manager/proxy built on the popular arr .net/reactjs base stack to integrate with your various PVR apps. Prowlarr supports both Torrent Trackers and Usenet Indexers. It integrates seamlessly with Sonarr, Radarr, Lidarr, and Readarr offering complete management of your indexers with no per app Indexer setup required (we do it all).


Prowlarr is in the early stages of development and is considered alpha/beta. Please make sure to check in the Prowlarr Discord about any issues you might face with the application. Anything else can go into the swizzin discord. Install and use with caution.

Initial Setup#

Installing Prowlarr is easy. Simply issue the following command:

sudo box install prowlarr

This command will configure prowlarr for your user.

How to Access#

After Prowlarr has been installed, it will be available for access at https://<>/prowlarr.

If you don't use nginx, you can find it on port 9696.

Service Management#

The Prowlarr service is managed by systemd and has been configured for single user usage. You can find the service file here:

sudo systemctl start prowlarr


  • Add your indexers
  • Add your Applications to sync
    • Go to Settings -> Apps -> Select an app to add -> Leave all as defaults, and paste in the API key from said app.

If you need further help, you can refer to the Prowlarr Wiki and Prowlarr FAQ/

If you are not running Prowlarr as your master user, you can set the environment variable prowlarrOwner=<yourUser>before the update, and the migration will respect the choice.
