Installation from package

Linux

We have not published any real package yet, we will update this page directly when we start to publish packages for any Linux distribution, in the meantime you should follow our installation from binary guide.

Windows

We have not published any package for Windows yet, we will update this page directly when we start to publish packages in the form of MSI installers or via Chocolatey, in the meantime you should follow our installation from binary guide.

macOS

Currently we only support the installation via brew for macOS. If you are not using Homebrew you should follow our installation from binary guide. To install Gitea via brew you just need to execute the following commands:

brew tap go-gitea/gitea
brew install gitea

FreeBSD

A FreeBSD port www/gitea is available. You can install a pre-built binary package:

pkg install gitea

For the most up to date version, or to build the port with custom options, install it from the port:

su -
cd /usr/ports/www/gitea
make install clean

The port uses the standard FreeBSD file system layout: config files are in /usr/local/etc/gitea, bundled templates, options, plugins and themes are in /usr/local/share/gitea, and a start script is in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/gitea.

To enable Gitea to run as a service, run sysrc gitea_enable=YES and start it with service gitea start.
