Posted July 22, 2014 2.4k views

Hello!

I hava some problem with Dokku and Forever module for Nodejs.

According to this article (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-host-multiple-node-js-applications-on-a-single-vps-with-nginx-forever-and-crontab) I must to navigate to my app’s folder (cd /path/to/your/node/app/) and run main .js file.

But I can’t to understand where index.js (my app’s main file) is. Where can I find this file?

P.S. I deploy my app with git push dokku master.

All the best, Ilya.

Dokku makes sure the app is running for you, so you don’t need to use tools like forever. You can run another app by pushing it to a different repo:

git remote add dokku dokku@dokku_server_domain:app_name
git push dokku master
