Trying to get Factorio enabled

It goes through my config but then fails to start. Here is my termbin:

Any ideas?

Hi MarisaG. I don’t see anything strange in the output of that script. It shows that the server is online and listening on its corresponding ports. Could you show the output of the startup script? Other things you can do is check the log messages.


Here is what it shows when I start it:

Here is what I get when I run the details option:

It seems to shut down as soon as it stops reading the config…

Here is my log file:

I have installed the same game server and I have the same messages in the console log file, but the service is online when I do the details command. I must tell you that I do not have the game so I cannot test the connection to the server.
Have you noticed that you don’t have any syntax errors in the configuration files?

I am running it on ubuntu version 18.04 server

Where would I see that? I’m running on ubuntu 16.04 myself… Want access to my server?

I found the issue - it doesn’t like Ubuntu 16.04. I installed it on a 18.04 server and it works fine… Thanks for the suggestion!

It has happened to me many times that some game servers have not worked for me that some versions of linux. Sorry I was late to answer, but I wasn’t home. I’m glad they solved the problem.
