Why is my repl stopping randomly after about 15 minutes??? I am trying to use my bot to play music.

we cant see your repl, make it unprivate.

Also, to use discord bots on repl, u need to create an http server then ping it with Uptimerobot with GET requests.

@EpicGamer007 I made the repl public if you dont mind looking at it

TylerMuranaka

@EpicGamer007 Can you send me a link showing me how to do that?

EpicGamer007

@TylerMuranaka do u want to know how to make a http server?

after that, you should sign up for https://uptimerobot.com and add this http server's site name(https://Asuna.TylerMuranka.repl.co) and send it get requests every few minutes.

Also, I see you have your token out in the open, you should put your bot token in a file called .env then use os.getenv('BOT_TOKEN') because now, anyone can take over your bot.

@EpicGamer007 ohhhhh sorry this is my first bot thank you I just changed my token Thank you for the help

TylerMuranaka

@EpicGamer007 What can someone do if they have my token???

EpicGamer007

@TylerMuranaka you can reset the token. go back to the discord developers page where you have setup your bots token, there should be an option to generate a new key. after you regenerate the key, update the key in this repl

Try refreshing, restarting, or making a new repl. IF all fails, report to bugs.

@RYANTADIPARTHI thank you I am going to see if it is on my end before I report to bugs

@TylerMuranaka ok, no problem. Click check mark please.

it might be something to do with your internet connection. If it goes out for even a second, it stops your repl and you have to restart it.
Hope it helps :)

@tankerguy1917 Thank you I looked at my ins and outs and that was part of it so I fixed that by going wired and now there are no outs with the internet but it still stops.

@TylerMuranaka no problem. glad i could help :)

I am having the same issue right now! My program keeps randomly stopping and I'm using the uptimeBot site. Did you figure out your problem?
