You need some node module that would allow to run it forever.
I can recommend you two -
forever. I’m more on side of
pm2as it have better process management. Also there are tutorials on DO for setting it up.
Follow PM2 part of Set Up Node.js App for Production. It’ll show you how to make it run always and as a service (e.g. automatically run it when servers reboot or after power on)
Just came across this question and wanted to mention that in addition to using PM2 by following the steps here: Set Up Node.js App for Production., I could also suggest going through this tutorial here on How To Build a Discord Bot with Node.js.
You need to host the script somewhere at all times, this is what a server is typically used for, I have bought a VPS (Virtual Private Server) for my discord bots so I can host them on there and they will always be running, these VPS’s cost around 5$ a month.
