Cannot change metadata in Calibre-Web. Database error: attempt to write a readonly database

My YunoHost server

Hardware: Raspberry Pi 4b 8 gig at home
YunoHost version: (stable)
I have access to my server : Through SSH | through the webadmin
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no
If yes, please explain:
If your request is related to an app, specify its name and version: calibreweb v0.96.19~ynh8

Description of my issue

I’m brand new to using Yunohost and a real novice when it comes to tech stuff like this in general. Any help would be appreciated.

I have Calibre-Web installed and working on my Yunohost server. I can access, search, etc. I copied my Calibre library into an external storage on the Nextcloud instance running on this server as well. It is in the default folder that the Calibre-Web instructions say to use: /home/yunohost.multimedia/share/eBook

All seems to be working, except it is only reading the database and will not make any changes. When I attempt to change metadata for my books, it provides me with this error: Database error: attempt to write a readonly database.

I’ve read some that it is a permissions issue that will not allow me to write to the database. I’ve attempted to use the following to change permissions:

chown -R calibreweb: path/to/library
chmod o+rw path/to/library

Of course, my goal is to gain write access so I can upload books and continue editing metadata directly from the web interface.

Thanks in advance for any help you all could provide.
