I've got Forever.js running, but what I'm trying now is to let more than one user use the same Forever.js instance.
If I start a file with Forever.js right now, I cannot see/stop/restart it with another user. If I do
Forever.js list there, it shows that nothing is running.
I've tried some things with setting the config values differently, for example:
forever set root '/tools/node/forever' and get back
Forever config saved: /tools/node/forever/config.json, but when I run
forever config then, the file is reset back to what is was.
Would I be able to set the config from both users to the same folder, and would it then share the same Forever.js instance?
Forever stores the current processesin the users home directory, so you can't share the same process with several users. The easiest way is to set up a service-user and switch to that user whenever you need to stop/restart your process (which shouldn't be too often).
Alternatively, you can set up an init.d script as described in this guide: Running a Node.js Server as a Service Using Forever.
