Hi @ahassannee,

I’ll recommend checking out your access and error logs. It should state the exact reason behind this behavior. If you are unsure how to proceed, you can provide us with the error here and we’ll try to help out.

Additionally, if you are using Node, I’ll recommend taking a look at the service pm2. This service makes sure your application is always running, even if it crashes, it will start it up again. You can read more about PM2 on how to install it, configure it here :
