ps -aux doesn't show app.js running
I've realised that after spinning the server up via the console you then have to hit the port in the browser for ps -aux to work. Otherwise, nothing happens in the console.
however once I did this, i don't see app.js like on chalkers video
Why is this?

Note that the command name will show as "node app.js" (not just "app.js"). in the listing.
But your process may have already ended, either because of an error or if you interrupted it from the keyboard.
I'm having this same issue. The console keeps loading since the program does not have a break and when you type the "ps -aux" it doesn't work in the workspace as shown in the video. The only way the command "ps -aux" worked for me was after it had a proper break when I did "ctrl+c" and then it accepted the "ps -aux" as a command, yet for this case, I understand it wouldn't be needed anymore if so since what we wanted with this command was to find the problem that kept running to stop it.
