How to Permanently Run NodeJs Script in Background

Posted on September 15, 2019 at 2:45 pm

You can use the Node package named Forever to run continuously a NodeJs script. The advantage of using “forever” package is that it can make a NodeJs script execute forever even after the node script process is killed, because it gets respawned!

1) Install Node “forever” package

npm install forever -g

2) Continuously start your NdoeJs script:

forever start /path/to/server.js

3) To check if your NodeJs script is running use:

ps -ef | grep "/path/to/server.js"

4) To stop the NodeJs script just use:

forever stop /path/to/server.js
