Can Meteor crash once deployed to a server?


Im nearly ready to release my Meteor app. This is a newbie question but I’ve never hosted a Node application before, only PHP MySQL.

Is it possible for Meteor to crash and need to be restarted? Working locally I can just close and reopen my terminal. Im not sure how this would work on a server or if its an issue or not?


If you use one of the many deployment tools (e.g. MUP, pm2), or deploy to Galaxy, server restarts are handled for you. If you are doing your own build and deploy, then you’ll need to take care of that yourself.
