Linux restart script

3 posts in this topic

First, I apologize for my english, but lets continue... The script can be used for every server available out there. This is my restart script and I thought I better share it, to save you guys some time. No Crontab needed here... The script runs in a loop continuous checking whether the server is started or not. You can see the output when you type screen -r or screen -r YOURSCREENNAME When you don't know what the application screen is, don't make a server

T H I N G S    T O    D O:

  • make sure that your restart script is set to shutdown the server after *your restart time*
    • exile_server_config > restart   OR
    • infistart config > restart
    • the server have to shutdown so the script knows that it should re-start the server
  • chmod +x restart.sh (basicly make it executable)
    • VVVVVVVVVVVV better you make a second script that executes this script like this VVVVVVVVVVVV
    • Dont forget to make it execuable :P
screen -dmS armaserver ./restart.sh

 

  • make sure you modify your server parameters in the script
  • make sure you modify all strings @ the start of the script
  • do not remove #bin/bash !!!!!!!!!!!!
  • If you want help, provide all information you can get
  • i am open for suggestions or edits
  • Read all instruction in the file
  • remove the curl "" part or install the app Simplepush (android) to get notifiyed when your server doing something

Any suggestions for another scripts?

Solves for problems that could occour:

  • Make sure all files / directorys are owned by the user
  • DO NOT USE ROOT ffs
  • All paths are right
  • The current user have enough rights
