To register Gitea as a Windows service, first run
cmd as an Administrator, and 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 your real Gitea folder.
After, open “Windows Services”, search for the service named “gitea”, right-click it and click on “Run”. If everything is OK you should be able to reach Gitea on
http://localhost:3000 (or the port is was configured, if different than 3000).
To unregister Gitea as a service, open
cmd as an Administrator and run:
sc delete gitea
