restart script [Linux] Restart Script for ExileMod

37 posts in this topic

I made a restart script for the Exile Mod internal restart function.

It looks into your logfile & if it found the "Exile Server: "SERVER READY FOR RESTART!!!" then,

it move your old logfile in a new folder sorted by YEAR/MONTH/DAY & rename the old logfile to log_HOUR/MINUTE. 

 

Tested on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS x64

Unfortunately this script doesnt want to read busy log files on my ubuntu server. 

I use https://github.com/dgibbs64/linuxgsm and crontab with restart command every 3 h. 

And php scripts to announce restarts.

https://github.com/deannreid/BattlEye-RCON-Control-PHP/tree/master/Restart Warnings

 

thx 4 the hint!, i have only logfiles à 100mb & these works fine.

i updated the script & now it works with a max. filesize at 3.4gb on 32bit distribution & a lot more on 64bit distro's

If you want restart every 6hrs you can use crontab -e

0 0,6,12,18 * * * /home/exile2esseker/arma3server/serverfiles/./script.sh restart

and the script i use

armaserver: ArmA 3 Linux Dedicated Server Control Script

http://pastebin.com/Zq0kt0xS

The nice thong about it it clears logs once every week and keep the server going

did you enter your server file and config details in reboot.sh?

Did u do chmod +x reboot.sh?

 /home/arma3/./reboot.sh why there is a dot between arma3 and reboot.sh?

can you link the source script ?

or test your script is right edited with, ./reboot.sh check

 /home/arma3/./reboot.sh why there is a dot between arma3 and reboot.sh?

this is the crontab, but i don't know if the syntax correct.

I would make it so

0 */6 * * * sh /home/arma3/reboot.sh restart

Personally I use LGSM, once set up correctly all you have to do is "arma3server restart", that is, if you use the default script name. If your configs are right the server will warn, autolock and then kick all, right before your cron job "0 */3 * * * /home/arma/arma3server restart" fires and restarts the server.

LGSM is nice if you are new to linux and want a easy setup. you can still use the bin/bash script.

If you read at the bottom you have following commands you can use with the script to check if everything is working or if the server is on.

start | stop | restart | status | check | log

so run the sh file like ./script.sh check
