nohup:ignoring input and appending output to 'nohup.out'


I am using ssh through putty, this is what i am doing


nohup php server1.php

Answer

That's not an error - it's normal behavior. It just informs you that once started the in/output is removed from your console.

To avoid the message you need to start it like

nohup php server1.php </dev/null &>/dev/null &
