OPDS Multiple Database

I have a database for ebooks and another for audiobooks. When I open each database the opds server url is the same. When I connect on my mobile FBReader app, the last database I have opened is what is displayed. Is there anyway to have separate OPDS cataologues for each Alfa Database?

I may not understand how opds works. Maybe it only works when I have Alfa open and then it will show whatever database I have open and the opds server started. opds does not work when Afla is closed. So is there anyway to have the opds server open even when alfa is not running to ensure I can access my catalog when alfa is not running?

Hi, yes, OPDS server is running only when Alfa is open. It's not possible to create different catalogs for different databases, because they have single IP address. So you just need to refresh your ereader to see the current database

Thanks for the response. I was able to get my separate ebook and audiobook databases to display in FB. I opened 2 instance of Alfa Books with the 2 different databases. I left the ebook database with default port 80 and I made the audiobook database port 90. In FBReader when I added the catalog URL I added the port at the end and was able to create separate catalogs. So far so good. I will leave both Affa instance open, they don't seem to take up to much memory running in the background.
