Linux: Send a running process to background

I was trying this:

dropbox_uploader.sh upload N7100XXDMC3_N7100ODDDMD1_INU.zip roms/N7100XXDMC3_N7100ODDDMD1_INU.zip

Unfortunately it was taking a lot more time than expected. I didnt want it to stop after I exited the ssh shell. Usually I do nohup to do the trick, but this time I’d forgotten to start it with nohup.

So I did this:

I did a Ctrl-Z on the shell.

Then,

bg
disown -a

The -a option detached all jobs.

And sure enough, once I exited the shell and re-logged in, it was still running in the background.
