Turn off restart

Post by Euchale » Sat Jan 24, 2015 9:16 am

Is there a way to turn off the automatic restart of the server that happens every 5 minutes? I´ve turned off my server, tried to delete everything and then upload my files which takes a while. During this time the automatic repair routine starts and creates files that cause a conflict with the files I´m trying to upload.
It´s a minecraft server and it´s creating all the standard files you get from starting the default minecraft server jar.

My Overview tells me:
Your server is offline. This seems to be because it was stopped manually. While in this state, it will also not be automatically restarted or repaired. To start it back up, use this option.

So It should be fine right?

You need to stop it using the Server control tab. This will prevent the automatic restart system from checking to see if your server is down.

This is what I did. That´s why I am asking. See also what I wrote about my overview.

Are the automatic routines turned back on, when I connect through a FTP client?

Oh sorry I misread above. Using FTP wouldn't re-enable automatic restarts.

Does the server stay offline fine until you connect through ftp?

Yes it does still say offline.

I tried starting the server and turning it back off, because I thought maybe there was a problem when turning it off and it told me that the server is already running. So maybe it´s turning on by itself by some weird reason.

I guess I fixed it. After logging out of my control panel and my FTP client and logging back in I could stop the server and then uploading seems to work fine.

edit: Nope it just took longer to happen again.

The system does not attempt to auto-restart servers when they have been turned off manually through the "Server control" page.
