Question

Running multiple scripts in one App Component error.

I am using a Git repository which builds succesfully. However, the deployment consistently fails due to missing files, even though the App build completed.

This is the simple run command that I use to run both as background process:

python main.py &
python main2.py &

Running one of either files works perfectly fine. But running a second one errors. Sometimes there’s no error and sometimes there’s a ‘file not found’ error.

Has anyone else encountered this or is there a simple solution to this problem? Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

If you were to connect via the console and run ls -l do you see the main2.py file in there?

I believe that you should not put the second script in the background as well, otherwise, the your app starts, executes all commands and then exits when command process finishes - despite background processes running. Try removing the & symbol after the second command.

Let me know how it goes!

Best,

Bobby
