Question

How do I see my node server?

I’ve set up my app and it is running but after ssh-ing out of the server, now I don’t know how to get access to my node server again. This is a super basic operation but I can’t find the steps on how to do this anywhere.

To elaborate, the server is running and I want to see the logs in real time like how the node server runs in development. I am logged into my droplet but I see only the command line. What are the commands to display my node server?

It depends on what article you followed to setup and install nodejs. There’s the “foreground” method of running nodejs where it stays visible to you in the terminal. And like you said the log is displayed back. And then there’s the “background” method where it runs silently but still outputs messages in log files. I can point you to the log if you can provide the link you followed to install it.
