i got it working, but the moment i log out of ssh, the board shuts down. How does one keep the command lynxchan running when one shuts down the ssh terminal?

Using a service.
The root-setup script allows you to install a service script for systemd, upstart or openrc.
All they do is to keep the process running under the user "node".

Thanks 4 the info! I got it working tho! Yeah, i just put an "&" after typing lynxchan and it works, too so i can close the console. I guess there are a few ways to do it.

ALSO, wtf. I am on digital ocean, and i did a fresh ubuntu install. I have a SMALL TEXT FILE i made with the commands i learned from mewch youtube video how to install lynxchan. So what's my prob? WELL, if some asshole made a simple text file with the commands to run in order and specifies exactly what build on difitalocean one should have, ANYONE could make a lynxchan board in like 10 minutes, no joke. But instead, people want to be ass fuk's about it. That is actually absurd.
Anyway, im glad i finally learned how to set up lynxchan!

Yeah, all that is required to work is to keep the process running. But using & makes it harder to maintain the service. For example, how do you restart? Where is the log? What happens if it crashes for some reason?

I ended up using pm2. Anyone use that before? To install you run npm install -g pm2 and then you pm2 start lynxchan or pm2 stop lynxchan , it seems to work very well. Prolly better than the & symbol, like you say.
