Download the latest Linux archive with the following link and execute it. Releases
chowncommands so Kavita can write to the directory you placed it in.
Browse to http://localhost:5000 to start using Kavita.
Optionally to have Kavita start in the background at boot, you may install it as a systemd service on your operating system. Save the following to a file named kavita.service in the directory
[Unit] Description=Kavita Server After=network.target [Service] User=kavita Group=kavita Type=simple WorkingDirectory=/opt/Kavita ExecStart=/opt/Kavita/Kavita TimeoutStopSec=20 KillMode=process Restart=on-failure [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
This file is an example and assumes you have installed Kavita to /opt/Kavita and you are running it as a separate user. Please change those settings if that is not the case for you.
Once the file is saved you can run
systemctl start kavita.service to test if it starts correctly, and if does, run
systemctl enable kavita.service and it will start at boot for your system.
Note: Please contact us if you wish to port Kavita for any other distro.
