Running multiple servers on Linux

Post by theRadAleks » Wed Jun 12, 2019 5:59 pm

Does anyone know a good way to setup another server on Linux without using PuTTY and having to leave it running in the background of my computer all the time? My current server is using NFO's vnc console and my OS is Ubuntu 18.04-LTS.

As long as your server program runs in a terminal, you could run it in a program called "screen"

Or you can run multiple servers with supervisor and they will run as linux daemons, unattached to a terminal. I run 9 servers this way and it will auto restart the servers after a crash . Plus it has a built in web server to start/stop your servers.
