Project restart. Initializing node_modules, hold on

Hey,
Why does this message pops up in console once every couple of hours? Without me doing anything. Is there way to prevent this?

“Initializing node_modules, hold on…
node v16.6.1, npm 7.20.6
Installing…
up to date, audited 141 packages in 3s…”

Hi Buggs, is it a boosted project or free tier?

This is probably your project restarting, the effects both free and paid projects.

I was attempting to see if there is any pattern and/or whether it was really occurring twice a day and decided to log each time the server starts. The first few entries on the 12th would be me setting it up but the 5 starts on the 16th wasn’t me.

While I wouldn’t use Glitch for hosting anything I needed to run all the time it can be disconcerting when I’m in the midst of a group of friends in VR and notice what I assume is the server restarting as everyone there is prompted to once again accept some terms that only occurs as the app connects.

It’s a boosted project

The projects and/or the servers that run them are started a couple of times a day. The report I posted was from a boosted project of mine. Without any indication of how often or when it limits the types of projects that can be hosted on Glitch.
