nix daemon - daemon to perform store operations on behalf of non-root clients
nix daemon [option…]
- Run the daemon in the foreground:
# nix daemon
This command runs the Nix daemon, which is a required component in multi-user Nix installations. It performs build actions and other operations on the Nix store on behalf of non-root users. Usually you don’t run the daemon directly; instead it’s managed by a service management framework such as systemd.
Note that this daemon does not fork into the background.
