If I do something like: ./appname & It runs in the background. yet, if I close the SSH console I ran that from, the app or script terminates. How do I make it so it does not terminate? I had the impression it already worked that way, but it just so happened that the console I've been doing this stuff from always stayed open on my server. I accidentally closed it, and all hell broke loose. I can't seem to get everything started again without having to keep a SSH session active somewhere or restarting the whole server (all that stuff is in the rc.local file). Is there a way to do this?
