Putting Jobs in the Background

Using nohup command & is the way in which you start a job (command) which will not accept the hangup signal when you logout (nohup) and will run in the background (&).

Of course you need to remember to put nohup before your command and the & after your command. If you forget all is not lost you can do the same thing with the following commands: CTRL-z, fg, bg, jobs and disown.

[1]+ Stopped ./
the above is the result of a CTRL-z the [job id] is the number in the square brackets.
So you will then need to start the job in the background with bg which outputs:
[1]+ ./ &
Then disown process with disown %1 so you can logout
