I'm trying to use Forever to keep my nodejs scripts up and running
As per Forever's homepage it says
[Long Running Process] The forever process will continue to run outputting log messages to the console. ex. forever -o out.log -e err.log my-script.js [Daemon] The forever process will run as a daemon which will make the target process start in the background. This is extremely useful for remote starting simple node.js scripts without using nohup. It is recommended to run start with -o -l, & -e. ex. forever start -l forever.log -o out.log -e err.log my-daemon.js forever stop my-daemon.js
However I fail to understand the difference between the two. Under what conditions should I use a long running process vs a daemon?
