Server stuck in restart loop

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:

  • I know this topic has been talked about quiet a few times already but I just couldn't find a satisfying answer to the problem.

    I was playing on my Minecraft mod server like normal for 26 days now (no issues at all) but this morning (restart log says -Sat Aug 29 10:58:25- (CEST Time)) out of the blue with no one being online, the server just stopped for no apparent reason. And when trying to restart, the server is stuck in a restart loop. I can stop the server just fine but starting it is just not possible. What I find strange is that nobody played on the server during that time, so the server just stopped on its own with no "player interaction".

    Long story short, I just wondered if there is a "quick fix" for that problem? Although I'm hosting servers on Nitrado for over 6 years I don't feel save changing some important files because I fear messing something up so badly that I destroy the world that I'm playing on. I know that I can create backups but Nitrado changed their backup-system recently and I don't know how to download worlds anymore.

    Error message is at the bottom.

    I hope someone knowing what he/she is doing can help me :)

    Appreciate you all.

    1. [Server thread/INFO] [FML]: The state engine was in
    2. incorrect state SERVER_STOPPING and forced into state SERVER_STOPPED. Errors

  • HI ;)

    Can you attach the server log?

    latest.log and a crash-report if available?

    To be on the safe side, you can also download your world via FTP!

    For example, use FileZilla and save the world folder on your PC.

    The FTP connection data are located at the bottom of the dashboard.

    MfG Conan ;)

    Fragen u. Antworten rund um Minecraftserver (Vanilla/Forge-Modpack/Bukkit-Spigot-Paper)

    Nicht alles aber vieles! Bisher wurde noch sogut wie jeder Server zum starten gebracht!

    Wollte nur mal sagen:

    "Ihr könnt mich gern in Discord hinzufügen, aber Antworten gibts erst abends (am WE auch mal ehr ^^) weil ich auch Arbeiten muss!"

    Daher bleibt mir für`s Forum nur noch wenig Zeit!
