Hello,

I've managed to get my Raspberry Pi setup as a little Open Media Vault NAS which I currently store my comics on. After loving the IOS app, I've decided to use my NAS to also run the library server.

Unfortunately I have stumbled at the last hurdle as the server seems to fail in initialising an SQL database. The start command returns:

INFO 2020-09-10T22:06:32.908 YACReaderLibrary starting
INFO 2020-09-10T22:06:32.908 Running on port "36439"
WARN 2020-09-10T22:06:32.909 QSqlDatabase: QSQLITE driver not loaded
WARN 2020-09-10T22:06:32.909 QSqlDatabase: available drivers:
ERROR 2020-09-10T22:06:32.910 Unable to create local server

The IOS app is still able to connect to it, however does not show my comics.

I have included a log of my attempt. The server also seems to change the port every time I attempt for some reason.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

As the debug message says the QSQLITE database driver is not installed on your system. Try installing the "libqt5sql5-sqlite" package.

And regarding the port problem, the app uses a random port if the configured port is already taken. You can either specify a temp port by using the start command in combination with the --port option or set a port permanently by using the set-port command.

Thanks for your help and the fast reply.

Those warnings have now gone and I can now access my comics, Thanks again sir.

I still get the following at the end though:

ERROR 2020-09-11T00:52:31.954 Unable to create local server

I am assuming this is because I only have the standalone server maybe? Cheers.

The "local server" is a local socket that is used to communicate between YACReaderLibrary and non-iOS YACReader on the same machine. It comes into play when you open a comic from the library app, so technically you wouldn't need it on the standalone or headless versions. Which is why you can access your comics just fine despite the error.

Now for that error. My guess is that the socket the local server tries to connect to is still in use from a crashed YACReaderLibraryServer, maybe because of the missing database driver before. So it is probably a bug.

Ah that makes a lot more sense. Well as long as the server now works it's a bug I can live with haha.

Thanks again for your help.
