Thanks for this great article!

It filled one big gap in my puzzle... :) In turn, I'd like to share with you an article: "The easiest way to install a node.js script as a windows service" here: github.com/tallesl/qckwinsvc and here: npmjs.com/package/qckwinsvc

I think that would be a good solution to keep application running in a managed and standardized fashion on a Windows server. At least administrators would thank you for this! :D

With best regards, Tomas.

Thanks for the suggestion, I like it. I've solved this by using a task in the Task Scheduler to restart pm2 whenever the server restarts. I use pm2 resurrect for this.

That'll do just fine as well! ;)
