Does dreamhost support background programs?


#1

Hi,

I have registered a host for web application. We need to run long term background java service (like a spider) that takes tens of megabyte memory. I login on ‘avengers’ server through ssh to run that java program, but I found it will be killed only several hours after it runs. Does dreamhost support this kind of application?

Thanks a lot!

Not on a shared account. You’ll need a DreamHost PS to run that sort of process.

Not on a shared server. You need a PS (Private Server) to run persistent processes. I know it used to mention this in the ToS, but I can no longer find it.
