BookStack is a simple, self-hosted, easy-to-use platform for organising and storing information.
In this tutorial, we are going to use this Docker build for Heimdall: linuxserver/bookstackThis tutorial is mostly for newcomers and those that are not so familiar with the Docker. I'm not an expert, but I want to share my installation as a tutorial to help others. Feel free to comment in the discussion section of this resource.
Before you start with the installation of this image you need to create a database and user for that database with a password. I use MariaDB and PHPMyAdmin for this, but this is not covered in this tutorial.
Let's begin with the installation:
- Go to the Registry tab in your Docker and search for

- Go to Image tab and find
linuxserver/bookstack. Select it and click on button Launch
Continue in the Container creation wizard and choose Advanced settings.
In the General settings tab set
In the Volume tab click on Add Folder button and create a folder structure in your Docker folder for example
Set the Mount path to
In the Port Settings tab change the Local Port to your desired port.
In the Environment tab add these variables and values:
|PUID||< your userID >|
|PGID||< your groupID >|
|DB_DATABASE||< your database name >|
|DB_USER||< your database user name >|
|DB_PASS||< your database user password >|
|DB_HOST||< your NAS IP >|
Ok, hit Apply button, wait a minute or two for the database to install everything, then navigate in your browser to
http://yourNASip:yourLocalPortand that's it!
You can access your Bookstack also from outside by using reverse proxy. (How to set up reverse proxy?)
