Control CrateDB on Linux

You can control the crate service with the systemctl utility program:

sudo systemctl COMMAND crate

Replace COMMAND with start, stop, restart, status and so on.


After the installation is finished, the crate service should be installed, but may not be configured to start automatically. Use the following command to start CrateDB:

sudo systemctl start crate

In order to make the service reboot-safe, invoke:

sudo systemctl enable crate
