Setup

Non-Docker

  • Unzip the archive for your target OS
  • Place in a directory that is writable. If on windows, do not place in Program Files
  • Linux users must ensure the directory & kavita.db is writable by Kavita (might require starting server once)
  • Run Kavita
  • If you are updating, do not copy appsettings.json from the new version over. It will override your TokenKey and you will have to reauthenticate on your devices.

Docker

Running your Kavita server in docker is super easy! Barely an inconvenience. You can run it with this command:

docker run --name kavita -p 5000:5000 \
-v /your/manga/directory:/manga \
-v /kavita/data/directory:/kavita/data \
--restart unless-stopped \
-d kizaing/kavita:latest

You can also run it via the docker-compose file:

version: '3.9'
services:
    kavita:
        image: kizaing/kavita:latest
        volumes:
            - ./manga:/manga
            - ./data:/kavita/data
        ports:
            - "5000:5000"
        restart: unless-stopped

Note: Kavita is under heavy development and is being updated all the time, so the tag for current builds is :nightly. The :latest tag will be the latest stable release. There is also the :alpine tag if you want a smaller image, but it is only available for x64 systems.
