What if you have a program that you’d like to run in the background remotely after you’ve exited from your terminal/shell prompt?
nohup some-command &
Maybe you have a python script called
server_receive.py, you should run
nohup python server_receive.py &. The “
&” symbol is required so that the process will enter the background.
You can later terminate it by running
ps aux to obtain the process id, and calling
kill -9 1234, if the process id is 1234.
