Deploy Logto Service

Logto (opens in a new tab) is an open source identity verification service that helps you quickly implement identity verification in your applications, and is also the most famous open source alternative to Auth0 (opens in a new tab).

This article will teach you how to deploy Logto service on Zeabur through the service market, and bind your own domain name so that your other websites can use your deployed Logto service to verify identity.

Step 1: Create a Project

First, we need to create a project on Zeabur. Go to the Projects (opens in a new tab) page, you will see all your projects, and the "Create Project" button is at the end of all projects.

Step 2: Deploy PostgreSQL Service

Logto will store user identity data in a PostgreSQL database. Click "Create Service" and select "Service Market", you will find PostgreSQL in the list.

Deploy PostgreSQL

After selecting PostgreSQL, your PostgreSQL service will be deployed automatically.

Step 3: Create a Database

In order for the Logto service to run properly, we need to create a database named logto in the PostgreSQL database first.

Method 1: Create in dashboard

Usaully, you need a PostgreSQL client to connect to the PostgreSQL service and create a database. But Zeabur provides a convenient way to create a database.

In your PostgreSQL service, you can find a tab named Database, where you can manage your databases with one click.

Database Tab

Logto Service requires a database named logto, so we need to create a database named logto. Type logto in the input box and click the Create button, then Zeabur will create the database for you.

Method 2: Use a PostgreSQL client

You can also use a PostgreSQL client to create a database. In this article, we use psql (opens in a new tab) to connect.

PostgreSQL Instructions

You can find the corresponding psql connection command or other connection information in the Instruction tab of the PostgreSQL service in the Zeabur console.

psql postgresql://

Next, please enter the following command in psql to create the logto database:


Step 4: Deploy Logto Service

In the Zeabur console, click "Create Service" and select "Prebuilt", you will find Logto in the list.

Deploy Logto

After selecting Logto, your Logto service will be deployed automatically.


If you deploy Logto first without deploying PostgreSQL, then you need to restart the Logto service after deploying the PostgreSQL service to let Logto get the correct database connection information.

Step 5: Bind Domain Name for Each Port

In the Zeabur console, in the Domain tab of the Logto service, you can bind a domain name to it. This domain name can be your own domain name or a free domain name provided by Zeabur.

For Logto, this service has 2 ports, one is for the web interface, and the other is for the admin console interface. You can bind a domain name for each port in dashboard.

Click on Generate Domain or Custom Domain, and you will see a input box for domain name and a selector for the port, then you can bind a domain for each port here.

For more information on how to bind a domain name to your service, please refer to Bind Domain Name.

Step 6: Set Environment Variable

After binding the domain name, we need to let the Logto service know about the domain name we bound.

Logto service requires 2 environment variables:

  • ENDPOINT: The domain name you bound for the web interface, for example
  • ADMIN_ENDPOINT: The domain name you bound for the admin console interface, for example

Open the Variables tab in the service page, click the Edit Raw Variables button, and you can fill the following variables in the input box.

  "ENDPOINT": "", // Your domain name for web interface
  "ADMIN_ENDPOINT": "" // Your domain name for admin console interface

After adding the variable, press the Restart button and wait for about 1 minute, then the service will restart and take effect.

Step 7: Log in and Configure Logto

Now everything is ready for your Logto service, you may like to configure it. You can open the domain name you bound for the admin console interface, for example, and you will see the login page of the Logto service.

And then you can create an account to get started with the Logto service, just follow the instructions given by the Logto service.
