Spawning in grass

2 posts in this topic

So mer server seems to be running, but like a lot of other people, I only spawn in the grass. :(

Ive searched the forums and google and can see lots of people having the issue, lots of people suggesting things but no one posting what worked for them.

So I decided to ask for some help so I can show my details specifically.

It seems to me that the server is not communicating with the DB at all. not even creating a new character. 

I have tried completely uninstalling MySQL reloading the exile.sql, starting with a fresh @exileserver folder and triple checking all the settings. 

I followed the EXILE INSTALLATION GUIDE V1.0.1 to set my server up./

I am using version 1.0.2 for @exile and @exileserver!

I have not installed any mods at all. only thing I have done is install BEC!

Here is a copy of my .RPT log - http://pastebin.com/nWhP81NC

and my extdb-conf.ini

I have read about database logs in the extDB folder but I do not seem to have any.

Can anybody help to free me from the grass?

If you have no database logs, your sever isn't even getting to the point where it attempts to connect to the server database.

Also, it looks like you posted your client RPT, not the server RPT.
