User Guide

Quick Start

  1. Download Caddy and put it in your PATH.

  2. cd to your website's directory.

  3. Run caddy.

Done! Open your browser to http://localhost:2015 to see it working. Caddy serves the current working directory by default.

If you see a 404 error, then Caddy is working but the root of your site is missing an index file. (Need more guidance? Read the beginner tutorial.)

Next, learn to configure Caddy using the Caddyfile.
