Hello

Can I install runit to have some process supervision to ensure my processes keep running (restart if they suddenly go down)?

Looking at the install documentation.. they say it installs to a "packages" folder which I don't think I'll have access to. Is that right?

What do other do... if I can't do runit.. is my only option using cron?

Thanks
Tim

As far as I can tell, the runit package does not provide any built-in means to install it within your own home directory.

Our recommendation is that you use Supervisor for process supervision. We have some instructions available here: How do I install and use supervisord to control long-running processes?

Hope that helps!
