I installed ubuntu server minimalistic on a small thin client and added an additional usb-drive/stick.
My setup is → ubuntu server->portainer->linuxserver.io Calibre Web Docker container and I used the exact same Docker CLI script instead of compose as in the documentation:
I got Calibre Web running and I can load login into the Calibre Web Dashboard via my browser and select a possible location of the Calibre database as a next step.
However due to limitation of space for my linux installation on linux drive sda I would like to load the Calibre database including ebooks from the attached usb-drive (linux: sdb) which is having appro. 60GB free space instead, please see screenshot:
Good to know, but I already started with portainer and would like to get a solution therefore.
Should the exact script command “-v /mnt/externaldrive:/books” be in my case “-v /mnt/sdb:/books” ?
How can I copy the files (ebooks) including the Calibre database to the external usb drive/stick, if I can’t access the mountpoint from Windows OS to copy the files, as the volume mounted by linux is mostly not formated or only in ext4 ?
try and see! It looks like basically what i told you to do (though you’re missing a partition number)
We don’t offer support for user’s hosts, we support the container. You copy files however you would normally do so and you’ll need to ensure you maintain permissions. You’re more than welcome to seek best-effort help on discord in our #other-support channel for that.
