in the production environment, you can alter the port in the production.js file and then lift the server using sails lift --prod. It will start the server on the defined port.

also to make the sails process run continuously you can use the Forever or PM2.

hope this helps!

I figured this out, silly me. Changed the port to 80 and it connected.
