Hi @gimenojude

I’m not sure what you’re asking, but it seems like you’re not using a process manager to start the Node.js app.

Or maybe you should just use this command instead, to run it without a web server:

cd parse-server-example
npm run-script parse-dashboard --config config.json --allowInsecureHTTP=1

Node.js is an open source JavaScript runtime environment for easily building server-side and networking applications. Node.js applications can be run at the command line but this guide focuses on running them as a service using PM2, so that they will automatically restart on reboot or failure, and can safely be used in a production environment.

Hi @hansen about my question the application will only work or start when i open two terminal and and npm start the directory cd parse-server-example and on the other terminal i need to put this npm run-script parse-dashboard –config config.json –allowInsecureHTTP=1 to make it work how can i automatically start this two without opening the terminal or console
