Fix Python – How to run a script in the background even after I logout SSH?

Question

Asked By – zihaoyu

I have Python script bgservice.py and I want it to run all the time, because it is part of the web service I build. How can I make it run continuously even after I logout SSH?

Answer

Run nohup python bgservice.py & to get the script to ignore the hangup signal and keep running. Output will be put in nohup.out.

Ideally, you’d run your script with something like supervise so that it can be restarted if (when) it dies.
