Ubuntu, Python, EC2 Question from a Newbie

Hello Linux Questions,

I am running python scripts on EC2.

Can I start the script and terminate my puTTY connection and expect to have the instance finish the script and collect the info later in the day?

No you can not do that. You will need putty connection going on to run the scripts. If you want to break the putty look into nohup option or something similar.


putty, python, ubuntu804
