Regarding the "Scales Better Daemon" post...
I would like to clarify that this was tested on Ubuntu 15.10, and does not seem to work with PufferPanel version 0.8.5.3 Beta. If anyone has a workaround or similar way to cause scales to auto-start on crash or server startup, please reply to this topic.
Check out: Cron Solution
I found this shortly thereafter I had noticed the PM2 solution did not work. A cronjob seems to work just fine, but I am open to other answers.
