User Guide


Always wanted to run Caddy as a service? Here's what you've been waiting for. This plugin was coded by me and Henrique Dias, who is the main contributor for File Manager. Notes: Notice that if you install the service with a name that is not the default's, you will need to specify it everytime you use one of the other commands using the flag -name.
