Duplicate processes

When I start my app it seems as if two processes run simultaneously. I tried the code with visual studio code and it worked perfectly, but render.com has some issues for some reason. It used to work flawlessly before.

It’s not an issue per say - it’s part of what we do to run your application. We may start your application twice, to detect the port and then to run it and there may be a period of time where 2 are running - typically we hear this from customers deploying a bot, any chance that’s what you’re doing here?

Yes I am deploying a bot, why?

Because people deploying bots seem to be integrating with endpoints that seem very sensitive to running 2 instances at the same time.

Wait so what should I do to resolve this?

The cause for this is due to our Zero downtime deploys - https://docs.render.com/deploys#zero-downtime-deploys which 99% of our customers actually use.

The behaviour and restrictions of bots conflict with this and makes us unsuitable in some cases for deploying bots too,
