  • If you are still having issues, some basic things to do:

    (1) Restart the server. If is hangs, about 5-10m a button appears to forcestop, then restart.

    (2) Check out the server logs.

    (3) If this is a new server, try a reinstall or a backup recovery. (if you feel comfortable doing this).

    (4) If all the above fails, please contact Nitrado Support to further investigate. Moderators have no access to servers or accounts. We are volunteers and able to share experiences just like the rest as this is a Community Support Forum for Gamers and Admins just like you and I.

    Thank you.

  • I only have the option to start server. So i press start server and then it says starting server then after a few minutes says "stopping server" and then i end up having to repeat over and over
