  • had my server just stop working earlier today


    And then preceeded to get stuck on the restarting. I then restored the backup saves and still stuck on the restart and won't force start but will force stop in an instant


    Help please

  • 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 your filters in searching. Use unofficial and mark sure you have password filtered out if you are not using a password.

    (3) Check out the server logs. If you see crashstack, that more likely is a corrupted gamefile. It happens with ARK. Sadly the resolution is to rollback to the last known saved file. And no way knowing which one is bad. Some folks that do not feel comfortable trying this- you can contact Support. They more than likely will suggest the same. OR have they might find something else.

    (4) If this is a new server, try a reinstall.

    (5) If all the above fails, please contact Nitrado Support to further investigate. If you already have please continue to be patient. We are unable to assist you here in the forums.

    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.
