Starting FiveM Server

Post by benjamin_mcinnes2 » Tue Jul 23, 2019 7:43 pm

Hey. So I recently have been testing the GTA 5 (FiveM) Manual Server Setup for the EzUGCC 2 Game Hosting Control Panel and there are two issues I noticed:

1. The Server Images button is visible and clickable even when you disable Server Images in the Configuration Panel
2. I am unable to start my FiveM Server

I have tried three ways of starting it. Directly by doing:
- C:\FiveM-Server-1\FXServer.exe
- C:\FiveM-Server-1\run.cmd
- And my own start file C:\FiveM-Server-1\runserver.bat

Both 2 and 3 above fail and show an error message. The first way however which I believe it how it should be done is, when I click Start, it says it Server Is Started! After about 30 seconds, if you refresh, it will then say Server is stopped!
And it doesn't even go online in that 30 seconds when I check the IP in FiveM.

Any help is greatly appreciated or am I doing something wrong?

Thank You,
~ Benjamin M.

FiveM is a little trickier to install than other servers.

Here's my settings:
Server root: X:\servers\FXServer
Working Directory: %Root%\fivem\server-data
Executable: %Root%\FXServer.exe
Comamnd line arguments: +set citizen_dir %Root%\citizen +exec server.cfg

Yeah it worked. But any news about the Server Images issue? And another thing, when News is turned off, there is still a button to access it at the top.

The server image setting is cached, restarting the web server should fix it.

You can remove the news link by editing the menu template, should be in the customize area of the settings menu. Just remove the line with news.aspx.

Awesome! Thank you very much. The only issue I am having now is with the Console Log. I tried to create a console-log.log file in the directory but it didn't seem to work.

Again, thank you and sorry for all the questions. Once I get this down once, i'll be set!

So I tried to do %root%\FXServer.exe and now it's displaying stuff but it's all like blocks and symbols

And it seems to actually rename the FXServer.exe to FXServer(Letters & Numbers).exe causing it to fail on start up.

The console log setting is only supposed to be use with a log file that the server creates for logging.
