To register Gitea as a Windows service, open a command prompt (cmd) as an Administrator, then run the following command:
sc create gitea start= auto binPath= ""C:\gitea\gitea.exe" web --config "C:\gitea\custom\conf\app.ini""
Do not forget to replace
C:\gitea with the correct Gitea directory.
Open “Windows Services”, search for the service named “gitea”, right-click it and click on
“Run”. If everything is OK Gitea will be reachable on
http://localhost:3000 (or the port
that was configured).
To unregister Gitea as a service, open a command prompt (cmd) as an Administrator and run:
sc delete gitea
