run process in background and keep it running after ssh exit [done]

To do so, simply use “disown <pid>” command.

Proceed as follows:

  1. ssh into server
  2. run command and put it in background: &
  3. note the id of the command being returned (or run either “jobs -l” or “ps aux | grep myprocess” to find it back)
  4. run command:
    disown <pid>
  5. exit ssh
  6. ssh into server again
  7. run “ps aux | grep <pid>” should return content

Alternatively use “nohup”: simply prefix your command with “nohup


nohup &
