And he was absolutelly right, config is much smaller, and you can easelly see status and output of a program.
First, install supervisor:
sudo apt-get install supervisor
Now you can create config for your application:
sudo nano /etc/supervisor/conf.d/kestrel_default.conf
With following content:
[program:kestrel_default] command=su -c "/home/username/.k/runtimes/kre-mono.1.0.0-beta3/bin/k kestrel" username directory=/home/username/mvc/HelloMvc autorestart=true autostart=true stdout_logfile=/home/username/mvc/HelloMvc/logs/app_std_out.log stderr_logfile=/home/username/mvc/HelloMvc/logs/app_err.log
Specify path to your dnx and application, as well as username under which you want to run your application (usually user who has dnx installed)
Now you can tell supervisor to reread configurations:
sudo supervisorctl reread sudo supervisorctl update
This command will automaticaly start your application (we specified autostart=true in config).
To see current status and start\stop applications execute:
There you can stop application:
Or check program's output:
