I have never set up a server before but since Parse announced that they are closing down I thought I might give it a shot. I have followed along with this tutorial and have managed to migrate my Parse database across to digital ocean.
When I call npm run start everything works fine. I can query for data and create new objects all from my iOS app. But there is just one problem. How do I keep the server up and running even when the computer where the ssh session started has been powered down?
When I call npm run start this is what gets logged in terminal:
> firstname.lastname@example.org start /var/www/parse > node index.js [TypeError: Cannot read property 'Kerberos' of undefined] DATABASE_URI not specified, falling back to localhost. parse-server-example running on port 1337.
I know that this is probably a noob question and yes my knowledge is quite limited, so if you could help me then that would be great!
Thanks for your time!
