How to keep Pokemon Showdown server hosted on Glitch from restarting?


#1

I am hosting a Pokemon Showdown server (PokeThunder) on Glitch. In order to register my server with Smogon, the organization that created Pokemon Showdown, I need 36 hours uptime.
I have been using Uptime Robot, but my server still goes down occasionally.

See screenshots attached.
Any ideas for why this is/how to fix it?psuptime

Hi, @SuddenlyQ, welcome to the Glitch Forums.

The Glitch infrastructure stops the container each project is running in every 12 hours (that is to say, 12 hours fro the latest container start time).

For most uses this is more than sufficient especially in combination with UptimeRobot, since the next UR ping after the stop starts everything back up again. It sounds like this won’t be suitable in your situation. I apologize for the inconvenience, but there is no workaround that will make your project keep running for more than 12 hours at this point in time.
