Scripted Tautulli Installation (TrueNAS CORE)

This resource was originally created by user: * Basil Hendroff on the TrueNAS Community Forums Archive. Please DM this account or comment in this thread to claim it.

As evidenced in the forum thread Tautulli been running fine but now can’t start, the transition from Python 2 to 3 has been somewhat bumpy for Tautulli users on FreeNAS. The Tautulli FreeBSD/FreeNAS Installation Instructions lends itself to scripting, however, it leaves the Tautulli database in the jail. The hint on how to relocate the Tautulli database outside the jail is included in the forum resource FN11.3 iocage jails - Plex, Tautulli, Sonarr, Radarr, Lidarr, Jackett, Transmission, Organizr.

This scripted installation of Tautulli will create a jail, install the latest version of Tautulli for FreeBSD from, and store its data files outside the jail where it can be more easily managed.

Scripted installation instructions are at GitHub - basilhendroff/truenas-iocage-tautulli: Script to install Tautuilli in an iocage jail..


  1. @danb35 for allowing me to reuse code fragments from his scripts and adopt his documentation style to facilitate rapid script development and deployment, and maintain a consistent look-and-feel.
  2. @Pentaflake for the Tautulli data directory pointer.

As always, thanks to who provide those usefull script to community (and newbie as me :slight_smile: )
Unlucky, for me dosn’t work:
i managed to add

# If release is 13.1-RELEASE, change to 13.2-RELEASE
if [ "${RELEASE}" = "13.1-RELEASE" ]; then

and installation start, but from what i see in the shell install not fail but can’t add those dependencies:



and the jail not working

Unfortunately it seems Basil has been gone for over a number of years now. I’ll try to clone his repo and post the updated script here.

@oxyde Clone this repo and run the install again.

git clone

I just saw you could actually just do

pkg install tautulli

But source is more up to date I suppose.

Install goes fine now, service is running, but jail is still unreachable :exploding_head:
Any idea on how i can debug this?

Are you adding port 8181 at the end?
