How to prevent a background process from being stopped in Linux

I'm currently working on a Linux machine through SSH and I'm trying to leave a process running throughout the night so I thought I would be able to do that by starting the process in the background and redirecting stdout to a file. But that didn't work. But as soon as I close SSH, my process is stopped. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

Hi,

Check out the “nohup” program.
