    Case Use


    To begin, you will need a Calibre library up and running on your server. To be more specific, you need a directory with the calibre library of books and the metadata.db file which you can point to. Calibre-web then points to this file and displays the database in a well presented page.

    Install using PG menu (5) PG Box > (2) Community > (1) PGBlitz's > type "calibre-web" > (A) install.

    Config screen

    Library configuration:
    /books
    Nothing else needs to be done on this screen.

    Changing library location

    The /books location defaults to /opt/appdata/calibre/'Calibre Library'/ which is the default calibre library directory on your local drive on your machine. If you want to change this location then you will need to edit either the .yml file and reinstall calibre-web, or open up Portainer and in the volumes section update the /books mapping with the location of your directory.
