Ubooquity

Ubooquity is a free home server for your comics and ebooks library.

Different WebUIs

  • Ubooquity has two different WebUIs. One is for accessing your media, and the other is the admin login which is meant for managing your Ubooquity instance.

  • The Admin Login can be accessed using the Admin URL and your Ubooquity media can be accessed using the Library URL as given in your Control Panel.

  • Our Ubooquity installer sets up an account for both endpoints with the username of your service and the password that you provided during installation.
