Always On Repl Turning Off

Problem description:
I have had a private Always On Replit that has run for almost 2 years now without being an issue. Since the new licensing model, I have had to Boost the Repl with the x4 boost to increase memory, but the Always On is a part of my Hacker subscription. It has not had any issues until September 7th around noon CST.

When I get reports that it isn’t working, I go on and it tells me “repl process died unexpectedly: signal: killed”. Again, this ran forever, same code, no changes. It now shuts off at least once per day with no other error code than the one mentioned before.

Expected behavior:
My code to stay Always On

Actual behavior:
Turns off at least once per day

Steps to reproduce:
Press Run

@DavidTutwiler Hello and welcome to the community!
Always on is now deprecated and being replaced by Deployments.

Hey @DavidTutwiler, welcome to the community!

It should have always shut off at least once per day, but then a few minutes later come back on again. Can you confirm this is what’s happening?

Thank everyone for their recommendations. I have been traveling, but this continues to be a pain as I have to restart my application every few hours.

Am I to understand that there is now only the option to use Deployments? Also, if so, and because I am using Replit to essentially just run quick little Python bots and not a web app, that I will have to go with a dedicated VM and pay 40 cycles per day to keep it running?

I hope I am misinterpreting that, because if so then Replit has gone from a cheap solution to a simple problem to pricing themselves out of our solution.

Pretty much. And you can choose for it to only be 20 cycles per day.
