[Support] Calibre Web

10 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Application Name: Calibre Web

Application Site: https://github.com/janeczku/calibre-web

Docker Hub: https://hub.docker.com/r/technosoft2000/calibre-web/

Github: https://github.com/Technosoft2000/docker-calibre-web

Template-Repository: https://github.com/fanningert/unraid-docker-templates

Description: Calibre Web is a web app providing a clean interface for browsing, reading and downloading eBooks using an existing Calibre database.

 

Requirements:

  • You need a existent Calibre database. A really good video, how you install and configure a calibre docker container is made by @gridrunner -> Thread link

 

Configuration at first launch:

  1. Point your browser to http://hostname:<HTTP PORT> e.g. http://hostname:8083
  2. Set Location of your Calibre books folder to the path of the folder where you mounted your Calibre folder in the container, which is by default \books. So enter at the field Location of Calibre database the mapped volume \books.
  3. Hit Submit then Login.
    Default admin login:
    Username: admin
    Password: admin123

 

After successful login change the default password and set the email adress.

To access the OPDS catalog feed, point your Ebook Reader to http://hostname:<HTTP PORT>/opds

 

On the original page https://github.com/janeczku/calibre-web/ you can find some example for reverse proxy settings and other configuration informations.

 

Reverse Proxy with caddy (example):

server {
  errors syslog
  timeouts none
  
  proxy /calibre http://[server]:[port] {
    transparent
    header_upstream X-SCRIPT-NAME /calibre
    header_upstream X-SCHEME https   # Only when protocol is different
  }
}

We have a Calibre Web container. Did you not find it in CA?

Wondering now if I remembered to do a support thread.

Sorry I don't find or see your calibre web container in the CA. I find only the COPS package of LINUXSERVER and Calibre client container.

Yeah, no need to apologise, I went back and looked at what we were doing with it, and we're waiting for v6.4 stable of Unraid to release.

***Disregard, i fixed it by enabling download for the guest account****

Thanks for this calibre docker. Love the Modern UI. I'm using Marvin 3 on iOS and I'm getting an error when i try to download a book. I configured marvin with opds and tried with and without credentials. 

 

I can browse the library and view the metadata. The issue downloading the epub. 


Error: The username and password you entered for this catalog are incorrect  or Marvin dos not the support the catalog's authentication method.

Is there anyway to see a log access file and where would it be?  I see an option to set a log file but I can't find it anywhere...

My container has suspiciously stopped responding to requests.  It's worked in the past, and I don't believe I've changed anything that would affect the ability of it to respond.

Have you had any luck getting yours working again?  I'm still getting rejections from it...

Edit Ok, working now, had to completely remove the container and re-add, configure it again.

I haven't had a crack at it yet - I'll try the same this week
