NOTE: This guide is incomplete. Typicall you would also want to create a separate Unix user to run Garage.
Make sure you have the Garage binary installed on your system (see quick start), e.g. at
Create a file named
[Unit] Description=Garage Data Store After=network-online.target Wants=network-online.target [Service] Environment='RUST_LOG=garage=info' 'RUST_BACKTRACE=1' ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/garage server -c /etc/garage/garage.toml [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
To start the service then automatically enable it at boot:
sudo systemctl start garage sudo systemctl enable garage
To see if the service is running and to browse its logs:
sudo systemctl status garage sudo journalctl -u garage
If you want to modify the service file, do not forget to run
systemd of your modifications.
