Sonarr Appdata Directory

From Servarr


Sonarr’s AppData folder contains the databases for logs and general app information, log files and the config file that contains settings required to start the web server. This path is listed on the System Status page in Sonarr, but if you are unable to access it, here are some common locations for it:

Windows

C:\ProgramData\Sonarr

C:\ProgramData\Sonarr

Linux

/home/$USER/.config/Sonarr (~$USER/.config/Sonarr)

/home/$USER/.config/Sonarr (~$USER/.config/Sonarr)

/var/lib/Sonarr

OS X

/Users/$USER/.config/Sonarr (~/.config/Sonarr)

Synology

/usr/local/Sonarr/var/.config/Sonarr

/volume1/@appstore/Sonarr/var/.config/Sonarr

QNAP

/share/MD0_DATA/homes/admin/.config/Sonarr

/share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/Sonarr_CONFIG

Argument

The -data argument forces the location of the AppData folder, so your startup command may be forcing a specific location. This is especially useful when trying to run multiple instances.
