Server won't start.

Post by Borgpack » Mon Sep 10, 2018 12:09 pm

I am currently the Head of Staff and now replacement developer on a StarwarsRP server, and were having a little trouble. Recently our former developer had a falling out, and did the petty thing of deleting the server files as he left. Since this I have had the server reset to the last backup, which should have worked fine seeing how the server was 100% functional at the time. The problem however is that the server refuses to start whatsoever. Does anyone have any insight on either what happened or how to fix this?

There are many things that this could be. If this is a managed server, or standalone server in our regular system, please continue to follow up with us directly on the problem.

In terms of restoring a backup, make sure to also wipe the server before triggering it, just to ensure that any other new content (which may interfere with old content once it is put back) has been removed. The restoration copies back old files without deleting others.
