[LINUX] Easy HTTP server and Systemd autostart settings in Go

On this page, I will post a simple HTTP server code in Go, and systemd will automatically start the program of the Linux (Ubuntu, Archlinux) service.

Simple HTTP server code in Go

$ pwd

$ cat SimpleHttp.go
package main

import (

func SimpleHttpHandler(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
        fmt.Fprint(w, "Simple HTTP server&Installation of Systemd Service")

func main() {
        http.HandleFunc("/", SimpleHttpHandler)

        //Start on port 8080
        http.ListenAndServe(":8080", nil)

Build SimpleHttp

$ pwd

$ tree
└── SimpleHttp.go

0 directories, 1 file

$ go build SimpleHttp.go

$ tree
├── SimpleHttp
└── SimpleHttp.go

0 directories, 2 files

Contents of the unit file SimpleHttp.service

$ cat /lib/systemd/system/SimpleHttp.service 
Description = SimpleHttp.service daemon

# Other directives omitted
# (file size)
# (cpu time)
# (virtual memory size)
# (open files)
# (processes/threads)

WantedBy = multi-user.target

Reloading the SimpleHttp service

Always run the following command after creating or modifying a new unit file, SimpleHttp.service.

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

Enable SimpleHttp service

$ sudo systemctl enable SimpleHttp.service

Start SimpleHttp service

$ sudo systemctl start SimpleHttp.service

Stop SimpleHttp service

sudo systemctl stop SimpleHttp.service

Disabling the SimpleHttp service

$ sudo systemctl disable SimpleHttp.service
