IPFS Linux Init Daemon

Note that for multi-user systems this is entirely useless. For a single user system however, it's helpful because IPFS will automatically be started at boot and always be at the ready without resorting to running it in a screen process.


To install ipfs as a daemon, simply run:


I also included a script that enables you to easily update ipfs. That can be run with:


Note that these don't require being ran as root, but will instead later ask for root permissions.

You'll be able to later start and stop the daemon with the command:

sudo service ipfs start/stop/restart
