I don't know if there is a way to do this directly with civserver, but
I think  the program  "screen" could do  the job  for you: log  to the
remote server, run screen, run the civserver process under screen, now
you can  detach the screen  (C-a d) and  log out from the  server. The
process will still run as if  it were in foreground. You can later log
again to the  server, and use 'screen -r' to  reattach to the previous
screen, and input commands to the server if you like to.

Read the  screen manpage and play  with it, you'll see  that screen is
often very useful :)
