Register as a Windows Service

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 remove gitea
