Dedicated Server Stops Running Question

Post by malvagio87 » 09 Nov 2015, 15:08

I setup a dedicated TM2 server on my CENTOS 7 box and it works perfectly when I play on it.

However, I believe it shutsdown if noone plays on it for a while and was wondering if there was a way to correct this or to figure out why it shuts down at all.

Any help would be appreciated.

Check the logs, how long do you mean by "a while"?

Dedicated server should be scheduled to start, preferably at night time, once a week :)
With this restart you can also do optimize, check and auto repair the server controller sql tables :)

The maximum time it actually can run is about 12 days, since most likely the precision timer goes over its number boundary (I'm most likely totally wrong here, since i'm just speculating, but my guess would be this :D)

That was exactly what I was looking for ^^ This is why I asked how often it stops, to discard this known issue.

Dedicated server logs, error logs or anything found in logs folder (lastest log). We will be able to see if an error ocurred in the dedicated and it shut down, timestamps to see if somehow something scheduled shows up (a corrupted map) or if it's your machine who kills the process
