A frequently asked question we get from customers is if we have support for Overseerr. At the time of writing, we don't officially support it, but it can be installed using a script a community member has written.

Overseerr is a free and open source software application for managing requests for your media library. It integrates with your existing services, such as Sonarr, Radarr, and Plex!

To follow this guide, you will need to SSH into your server. If you need help with this, please refer to the how do I connect article.


These tools are not officially supported. Please consider reaching out to our Discord for unofficial community-driven support on anything listed below.


Before installation, please consider reading the installer script. You can read it on the GitHub Repo. You can run the script by using the following command:

bash <(curl -sL "")

If something goes wrong during your install, please consider checking the logs and the output in your console. You may find them by running the following:

less -r +G ~/.logs/overseerr.log

These can be helpful in cases where you need to see the output from installation.

On first run, go to http://<>:<yourportnumber> to access Overseerr. This should ask you to setup some credentials. Keep in mind that this application is exposed on the public internet.

Controlling the Systemd Service#

systemctl --user start overseerr


For most troubleshooting, please consider consulting the Overseerr Docs.

I Can't Remember my Port Number#

Run the following via SSH.

Viewing logs#


For application specific logs, consider running the following:

You can exit less by pressing q at any point.
