Discord bot stops working after 4ish hours even though it shows as online?

I’m running a Discord bot on Node.js using pm2 to manage it, and it’ll work perfectly for a few hours but then afterwards it decides to stop working. I have to manually restart the process, even if it shows up as online, for it to get up and running again.

Hi there,

What I could suggest is checking the logs of your application to get some more information on what could be going wrong.

You should be able to do that with the pm2 command:

pm2 logs
