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.
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.
