Im having some dificulties to keep my telegram bot “alive”.
I have a code that fetches and returns some data to a telegram group upon someone interacting with it on telegram.
I deployed with autoscale in replit but if the bot is inactive for a while, then it wont run anymore until I come to replit and run it manually.
Could you let me know why this happens?
I had the impression that with deploys replit could work as a full production environment without shutting down, Im on hacker plan.
For reliable uptime, use Reserved VM. Or, just like you’d (until 2024) do with repl.co, add your repl’s URL to a pinger such as uptimerobot.com, but with that you could get occasional restarts
And it won’t work once deployments are in full force
thanks for the fix. i went with uptime robot for now!
@JoaoLages1 Beware that by January 1st, 2024, Uptime Robot will not work. Keep this in mind.
So the only viable solution for a telegram or discord bot to be kept alive after January is a reserved VM?
That is correct, make sure you keep it in mind.
If you want reliable uptime, yes.
Otherwise, uptimerobot should continue to work on autoscale deployments.
(by “URL” I meant the URL of the autoscale deployment)
