Change Security Settings
Enable and configure wanted Plugins to tag your content
Move the Thumbnail Folder to a dedicated folder if you don't want them alongside your content
Change the default Content Folder to your personal folder, or start adding files to the default Content Folder!
The first step you'll probably do is head to the Configuration page to modify the default security settings.
When logged in as Admin in LRR, you have access to the full functionalities of the app. By default, unlogged users can only read archives.
There are three basic levels of security you can enable:
Password Enabled (default)
If you're running the app on a server that's potentially accessible by others, I recommend leaving password protection enabled and changing the default password.
If you don't want any page of the app to be accessible to outsiders, you should enable No-Fun Mode and restart the application to make sure it is enabled.
One of LRR's core concepts is the content folder. This folder contains all the user-generated data:
Thumbnails for said archives
The Redis database (Windows only)
By default, this folder is placed at the root of the LRR installation, but you can configure it to use any folder on your machine instead. The content folder is subdirectory-aware, so you can easily drop-in an already sorted collection.
The content folder can be write-only if you so desire, but the caveat is that the thumbnail subfolder (
/thumb) needs write rights to function properly for the time being.
See the section below if you want to move the thumbnail subfolder somewhere else.
Starting with 0.7.7, the thumbnail folder can be dissociated from the Content Folder, if you want to move it to a SSD or keep your Content Folder fully read-only.
Plugins are used by LANraragi to fetch Metadata for your Archives using various online services.
Currently supported out of the box are:
.json files embedded into your Archives from the eze userscript
.json files embedded into your Archives from HDoujin Downloader
See the Adding Metadata section for more information.
You can add archives to the application by either copying them to the content folder, or using the built-in uploader tool. They'll be automatically indexed and added to the database. Plugins will also be ran automatically to try and fetch metadata for them, if you toggled them in Plugin Configuration previously.
You can also queue downloads by giving URLs to the server in the uploader tool, which will then be downloaded to your content folder seamlessly. See the link below for more details.
