How do I connect my Repl.it Discord Bot to Digital Ocean to keep the bot running 24/7?
I am making a Discord bot using JS (Node.js to be exact) and Repl.it. When I was setting up the connection between the bot and the code, the article/tutorial that I used (https://www.codementor.io/garethdwyer/building-a-discord-bot-with-node-js-and-repl-it-mm46r1u8y) said that I could keep the bot running using Repl.it by creating a web server, and the bot would keep running, even when the browser was closed. However, what it did not say is that Repl will only keep the bot running for an hour after the browser is closed. I reddit a reddit thread on r/discordapp that said I should use DigitalOcean to keep it running 24/7 and I was just wondering how I would do this and how I would connect it to Repl.it?
Thanks for any help!
