Setup Calibre

To setup the Calibre server software, we’ll create a new Stack in Portainer and paste the following in:

version: "2.1"
    image: linuxserver/calibre
    container_name: calibre
      - PUID=998
      - PGID=100
      - TZ=America/Denver
      - /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Files/Calibre:/config
      - 8082:8080
      - 8081:8081
    restart: unless-stopped

You’ll want to make sure that you change the following:

  • PUID
  • PGID
  • TZ
  • volumes
  • ports (as necessary)

Once you’ve done that, you can click the “Deploy the Stack” button and give it some time to deploy.

After it has deployed, you’ll want to navigate to /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Files/Calibre in your SSH program and then run this command to change the permissions to give us the ability to copy ebooks to the server:

chmod -R ugo+rwx 'Calibre Library'

Now you can copy your eBook library into the folder on your server.

By this point, the container should have deployed and you can go back to the browser window and type http://your-server-address:8082 and access the Calibre server and add your books to the software.
