Setting up a raspberry pi as home media server

I recently got my hands on a Raspberry Pi Model B+ V2 and am going to play around with it over the next couple of weeks.

The goal is to set up the following:

  • Set up the pi as a headless server in the home network
  • Mount an external USB hard drive
  • Install samba
  • Setup a VPN
  • Install a torrent daemon
  • Install Sonarr
  • Install Seafile (or other self-hosted storage solution for remote access).

I'll be adding a post for each of these and will be starting off with a clean SD card flashed with the most recent NOOBS version (currently 1.4.1 obtained from here).
