使用forever在ssh中管理node应用

通常我们会使用ssh工具连接远程的云主机部署运行web应用,但是当我们断开ssh回话后,应用也随之断开,那么有什么方法能使得应用不受ssh断开的影响呢?当然有方法!

一种方法大家可以参考《Linux下使Shell 命令脱离终端在后台运行》

今天我们主要来介绍怎么使用forever管理node应用。

安装

npm install -g forever

使用

  • 启动应用
forever start app.js
  • 停止应用
forever stop app.js

  [Long Running Process]
    The forever process will continue to run outputting log messages to the console.
    ex. forever -o out.log -e err.log my-script.js

  [Daemon]
    The forever process will run as a daemon which will make the target process start
    in the background. This is extremely useful for remote starting simple node.js scripts
    without using nohup. It is recommended to run start with -o -l, & -e.
    ex. forever start -l forever.log -o out.log -e err.log my-daemon.js
        forever stop my-daemon.js
