Bookstack is a free and open source Wiki designed for creating beautiful documentation. Feautring a simple, but powerful WYSIWYG editor it allows for teams to create detailed and useful documentation with ease.

Powered by SQL and including a Markdown editor for those who prefer it, BookStack is geared towards making documentation more of a pleasure than a chore.

For more information on BookStack visit their website and check it out: https://www.bookstackapp.com

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling ghcr.io/linuxserver/bookstack should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture Tag
x86-64 amd64-latest
arm64 arm64v8-latest
armhf arm32v7-latest

Usage

Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container.

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

---
version: "2"
services:
  bookstack:
    image: ghcr.io/linuxserver/bookstack
    container_name: bookstack
    environment:
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - APP_URL=
      - DB_HOST=bookstack_db
      - DB_USER=bookstack
      - DB_PASS=<yourdbpass>
      - DB_DATABASE=bookstackapp
    volumes:
      - /path/to/data:/config
    ports:
      - 6875:80
    restart: unless-stopped
    depends_on:
      - bookstack_db
  bookstack_db:
    image: ghcr.io/linuxserver/mariadb
    container_name: bookstack_db
    environment:
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=<yourdbpass>
      - TZ=Europe/London
      - MYSQL_DATABASE=bookstackapp
      - MYSQL_USER=bookstack
      - MYSQL_PASSWORD=<yourdbpass>
    volumes:
      - /path/to/data:/config
    restart: unless-stopped

docker cli

docker run -d \
  --name=bookstack \
  -e PUID=1000 \
  -e PGID=1000 \
  -e APP_URL= \
  -e DB_HOST=<yourdbhost> \
  -e DB_USER=<yourdbuser> \
  -e DB_PASS=<yourdbpass> \
  -e DB_DATABASE=bookstackapp \
  -p 6875:80 \
  -v /path/to/data:/config \
  --restart unless-stopped \
  ghcr.io/linuxserver/bookstack

Parameters

Container images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host’s IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Parameter Function
-p 80 will map the container’s port 80 to port 6875 on the host
-e PUID=1000 for UserID - see below for explanation
-e PGID=1000 for GroupID - see below for explanation
-e APP_URL= for specifying the IP:port or URL your application will be accessed on (ie. http://192.168.1.1:6875 or https://bookstack.mydomain.com
-e DB_HOST=<yourdbhost> for specifying the database host
-e DB_USER=<yourdbuser> for specifying the database user
-e DB_PASS=<yourdbpass> for specifying the database password
-e DB_DATABASE=bookstackapp for specifying the database to be used
-v /config this will store any uploaded data on the docker host

Environment variables from files (Docker secrets)

You can set any environment variable from a file by using a special prepend FILE__.

As an example:

-e FILE__PASSWORD=/run/secrets/mysecretpassword

Will set the environment variable PASSWORD based on the contents of the /run/secrets/mysecretpassword file.

Umask for running applications

For all of our images we provide the ability to override the default umask settings for services started within the containers using the optional -e UMASK=022 setting. Keep in mind umask is not chmod it subtracts from permissions based on it’s value it does not add. Please read up here before asking for support.

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags) permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

  $ id username
    uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

 

Application Setup

The default username is admin@admin.com with the password of password, access the container at http://dockerhost:6875.

This application is dependent on a MySQL database be it one you already have or a new one. If you do not already have one, set up our MariaDB container here https://hub.docker.com/r/linuxserver/mariadb/.

If you intend to use this application behind a subfolder reverse proxy, such as our SWAG container or Traefik you will need to make sure that the APP_URL environment variable is set to your external domain, or it will not work

Documentation for BookStack can be found at https://www.bookstackapp.com/docs/

Advanced Users (full control over the .env file)

If you wish to use the extra functionality of BookStack such as email, Memcache, LDAP and so on you will need to make your own .env file with guidance from the BookStack documentation.

When you create the container, do not set any arguments for any SQL settings. The container will copy an exemplary .env file to /config/www/.env on your host system for you to edit.

PDF Rendering

wkhtmltopdf is available to use as an alternative PDF rendering generator as described at https://www.bookstackapp.com/docs/admin/pdf-rendering/.

The path to wkhtmltopdf in this image to include in your .env file is /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf.

Docker Mods

Docker Mods Docker Universal Mods

We publish various Docker Mods to enable additional functionality within the containers. The list of Mods available for this image (if any) as well as universal mods that can be applied to any one of our images can be accessed via the dynamic badges above.

Support Info

  • Shell access whilst the container is running: docker exec -it bookstack /bin/bash
  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime: docker logs -f bookstack
  • container version number
    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' bookstack
  • image version number
    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' ghcr.io/linuxserver/bookstack

Updating Info

Most of our images are static, versioned, and require an image update and container recreation to update the app inside. With some exceptions (ie. nextcloud, plex), we do not recommend or support updating apps inside the container. Please consult the Application Setup section above to see if it is recommended for the image.

Below are the instructions for updating containers:

Via Docker Compose

  • Update all images: docker-compose pull
    • or update a single image: docker-compose pull bookstack
  • Let compose update all containers as necessary: docker-compose up -d
    • or update a single container: docker-compose up -d bookstack
  • You can also remove the old dangling images: docker image prune

Via Docker Run

  • Update the image: docker pull ghcr.io/linuxserver/bookstack
  • Stop the running container: docker stop bookstack
  • Delete the container: docker rm bookstack
  • Recreate a new container with the same docker run parameters as instructed above (if mapped correctly to a host folder, your /config folder and settings will be preserved)
  • You can also remove the old dangling images: docker image prune

Via Watchtower auto-updater (only use if you don’t remember the original parameters)

  • Pull the latest image at its tag and replace it with the same env variables in one run:
    docker run --rm \
    -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
    containrrr/watchtower \
    --run-once bookstack
    
  • You can also remove the old dangling images: docker image prune

Note: We do not endorse the use of Watchtower as a solution to automated updates of existing Docker containers. In fact we generally discourage automated updates. However, this is a useful tool for one-time manual updates of containers where you have forgotten the original parameters. In the long term, we highly recommend using Docker Compose.

Image Update Notifications - Diun (Docker Image Update Notifier)

  • We recommend Diun for update notifications. Other tools that automatically update containers unattended are not recommended or supported.

Building locally

If you want to make local modifications to these images for development purposes or just to customize the logic:

git clone https://github.com/linuxserver/docker-bookstack.git
cd docker-bookstack
docker build \
  --no-cache \
  --pull \
  -t ghcr.io/linuxserver/bookstack:latest .

The ARM variants can be built on x86_64 hardware using multiarch/qemu-user-static

docker run --rm --privileged multiarch/qemu-user-static:register --reset

Once registered you can define the dockerfile to use with -f Dockerfile.aarch64.
