If you’re using Ubuntu or some other flavor of Linux you more than likely want your algorithm to start with the server. This is a pretty straightforward process.
The first thing you’ll want to do is make sure cron is installed
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cron
Next run crontab -e select nano when it asks which editor. The code below can be used as a template The first two lines are just writing the current date to the log files on reboot so you know when the server was restarted.
@reboot date >> /home/me_jeremywhittaker_com/AAII/log.txt @reboot date >> /home/me_jeremywhittaker_com/AAII/errors.txt
I actually am running two scripts for this particular strategy. Each one gets its own line of code. This basically tells it to run on on startup @reboot then the path to the script to execute,
@reboot /home/me_jeremywhittaker_com/queen_of_stonks/queen_of_stonks_monitor.py >> /home/me_jeremywhittaker_com/queen_of_stonks/logs.txt 2>> /home/me_jeremywhittaker_com/queen_of_stonks/errors.txt @reboot /home/me_jeremywhittaker_com/queen_of_stonks/queen_of_stonks_trade.py >> /home/me_jeremywhittaker_com/queen_of_stonks/logs.txt 2>> /home/me_jeremywhittaker_com/queen_of_stonks/errors.txt
That’s it. We can now do a sudo reboot and our scripts should start with our server and save to the log files indicated.
