Node.js Question

Start Node JS application when server reboots with pm2

I am trying to use the module

pm2
to start my node js app everytime the server boots.
I have used the command
pm2 startup ubuntu
but each time I restart the server, my application is not running and I have to start it manually again.

Any ideas what is causing this issue?

Answer

Make sure you do save your processes:

pm2 start app.js 
pm2 startup ubuntu 
pm2 save

Once you have started the apps and want to keep them on server reboot do: pm2 save
