GIVE ME SOLUTIONS OR ANY OTHER ALTERNATIVES FOR PM2 HELP ME

I’m using Digitalocean Ubuntu 20.04 Droplet.

dotnet core sdk version 2.1

pm2 version 4.5.6

I’m giving these commands:

dotnet restore

dotnet build

dotnet publish

cd ../publish folder

pm2 start xxxxxxx.dll --watch --name webapi

It’s showing this error:

[PM2] Starting /root/xxxxxxxx_API/xxxxxxxxx.API/bin/Debug/netcoreapp2.1/publish/xxxxxxxx.API.dll in fork_mode (1 instance)

Hi there,

Does the process start as normal if you run it with dotnet myapp.dll directly?

I believe that you need to specify dotnet in your start command as well:

  1. pm2 start "dotnet xxxxxx.dll" --name webapi
