Create upstart and monit configuration files for your nodejs applications install globally using you may need sudo
npm install create-upstart-monit -g
Then go to the application you want to generate upstart and monit files
ubuntu@hostname:/opt$ cd home-monitor/cloud-cordinator/ ubuntu@hostname:/opt/home-monitor/cloud-cordinator$ create-upstart-monit -p 3003 upstart file written to /opt/home-monitor/cloud-cordinator/.deployscripts/xbeecloudcordinator.conf monit file written to /opt/home-monitor/cloud-cordinator/.deployscripts/xbeecloudcordinator.monit.conf Upstart and Monit file generator for nodejs
You can then move them over to /etc/init/ and /etc/monit/conf.d/ yourself.
ubuntu@hostname:/opt/home-monitor/cloud-cordinator$ sudo cp .deployscripts/xbeecloudcordinator.conf /etc/init/ ubuntu@hostname:/opt/home-monitor/cloud-cordinator$ sudo cp .deployscripts/xbeecloudcordinator.monit.conf /etc/monit/conf.d/
Then you start your service with something like
ubuntu@hostname:/opt/$sudo start xbeecloudcordinator
Or you can do it through monit.
The application uses information from package.json. The name of the package will be the service name so be sure its unique.
