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.
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-node-js-application-for-production-on-ubuntu-16-04

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

    You need to follow the tutorial to make your app ready for production by having a process manager overlooking the app - and using a proper web server, such as Nginx to proxy the data through.
