It’s nice for several reasons if the JupyterHub server brings itself up when the system starts. Here’s how to do that—an adaptation of this Stack Overflow post.
Create a file at
/etc/systemd/system/docker-jupyterhub.service and put the following text into the file.
[Unit] Description=JupyterHub container Requires=docker.service After=docker.service [Service] Restart=always ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/docker-compose start -f /path/to/GPU-Jupyterhub/docker-compose.yml --project-directory /path/to/GPU-Jupyterhub/ ExecStop=/usr/local/bin/docker-compose stop -f /path/to/GPU-Jupyterhub/docker-compose.yml --project-directory /path/to/GPU-Jupyterhub/ [Install] WantedBy=default.target
Once that file has been created, issue the following command:
sudo systemctl enable docker-jupyterhub.service
Now the JupyterHub server should start when the host computer boots and you won’t have to login to start it manually.
It was a little tricky to find that
--project-directory flag, and turns out it’s important to put the
stop before any other arguments.
