This can be any text that makes sense to you.
```

Description=Owncast Service

This is where the "functional" parts of the service live.<br />
```
[Service]
Type=simple
WorkingDirectory=[path_to_owncast_root_directory]
ExecStart=[path_to_owncast_executable]
Restart=on-failure
RestartSec=5
```
`WorkingDirectory` should be where you want the owncast folder to live.<br />
**Example:**<br />
```WorkingDirectory=/var/www/owncast```
Similarly the `ExecStart` is the actual owncast binary.<br />
**Example:**<br />
```ExecStart=/var/www/owncast/owncast```
```
[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target
```
This just means, use runlevel 3 non-graphical.
**INSTALLATION**
Just create the file in your systemd configuraiton directory (typically /etc/systemd/system/), and update the systemd daemon with:
```$sudo systemd daemon-reload```
**USAGE**
Currently the following options work
- Start
- Stop
- Status
