As I was building my home lab it became apparent that I would need to keep a wiki of sorts. That is why I installed Bookstacks

This guide will cover the installation of Bookstacks as an LXC container. We are going to use a TTeck helper script to install Ubuntu first and then install bookstacks.


On your Proxmox instance select your main server and select shell

Once logged in we are going to use the TTeck helper script to install Ubuntu. You can use the default install options and just let it run.

bash -c "$(wget -qLO -"

Bookstacks Installation

Once installed ssh or open the console for the newly created Ubuntu machine. I have a script on my Github that will do all the heavy lifting for us. RUN THIS ON THE UBUNTU MACHINE NOT THE MAIN SERVER

bash -c "$(wget -qLO -"

Once run the script will ask you for a domain or IP you want to host the bookstack instance. I use the IP as I can use a proxy to route the traffic if I want to use domain names.

This will take a second but once complete you will see this information block

We can head over to that IP address and use the default credentials to login. This will not prompt you to change them but I Highly Recommend you do.

Change password

Click on settings > users > admin. I would recommend changing the email. Then Input the new password twice and click save.

There is a lot more to configure in Bookstacks but most of it is a matter of personal preference so I will leave it here. If you have a question on how to do something let me know and I will work on getting you an answer.
