Ubooquity 1.6.0, with SSL support (HTTPS)

26 october 2014    Release

Ubooquity 1.6.0 is available.

[UPDATE] If you use the "Modern" theme, you will have to download the new version of this theme on the themes page.

New features

  • SSL support : You can now access your files in a more secure way by using the HTTPS protocol instead of HTTP. To do that you will need to get a SSL certificate (either by buying one or generating a self-signed one), generate a Java keystore and configure Ubooquity to use it.
  • Reverse proxy : If you want to use reverse proxy, you can now choose the prefix which will be added at the beginning of every URL served  by Ubooquity.
  • "New comics/books" links : two new links on the home page which will take you to a page containing the latest comics and books added to your collection.


  • Added an option to disable files auto scan at startup (if you want your files scanned only when you press the "scan" button).
  • Failed logon attempts for the webadmin page are now displayed on a single line so that they are easier to parse with fail2ban.
  • Log files rotate when they reach 1 MB instead of 5 MB.
  • Removed session limitation restricting a user to a single active session (you were automatically logged out of a device when logging into another). You can now have several sessions on different devices at the same time.
  • Removed port range restriction (ports under 1024 are now authorized).
  • Fixed advanced preferences page in webadmin.
  • Fixed several bugs related to user rights management.
  • Fixed a bug preventing the comic pages displayed in the online reader from being wider than 1200 pixels.
  • Fixed online reader keyboard shortcuts in Chrome.
  • Fixed a bug which was degrading perfomances of the online reader when a scan was in progress.


No OPDS support yet, and the online reader has not been improved much either. But work is in progress and these features/improvements will probably be delivered in the 1.7.0 version.
