I had a set Up with Node.js Application on Ubuntu 14.04 [reverse proxy]. Everything works fine..Hello world node application is running pretty well.. and am using pm2..

Now i have to run real world node application with serving index.html… i update the hello.js and upload it via SFTP and restart the nginx Ubuntu server. But its not working. Still it shows intial hello world application.

How do i proceed further. Thanks i advance

Once your app is running via pm2, simply restarting nginx will not cause the new app to run. You’ll need to stop and restart your app via PM2 so the new application is loaded instead of the one previously loaded in memory.
