server stuck on 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:
Community Discord:
Guides section:

  • I can confirm, I had same issue, did same tests, no luck. started a support ticket and they fixed. They said it was probably because I didn't wait enough time after stopping server to save changes I made. Now I always wait at least 2 minutes before making changes after stopping, saving then waiting another 2 minutes before starting, no problems since.

  • The servers still seem to have a lots of problems to run 7d2d.

    lot of shader errors in the log and often stuck on this

  • Same problem here. At beginning we had a shutdown server 3-4/day now it's every hour. Switch to stable alpha 20 not possible, new install not possible too because 7 Days to Die is not in the game listing... We sent a ticket this morning.
