We get a lot of people who want to know why their server is not starting. The vast majority of times, the cause is a 3rd party modification of some kind. A second runner up would be a configuration file with a syntax error or missing line. This is frustrating for both the user who wants their server to ‘just work’ and the HGS Support team who constantly has to look into the reason servers aren’t starting all the time. Today, we have a solution.
HGSPanel now lets Linux Game Servers view their current output right in the browser. The new ‘Click to View Game Console Debug Logs’ link that appears when your server is running will show you all output from your game server. You will have to reload the page to see new output, but it is directly available to you without having to request SSH and go through all that rigmarole.
To prevent the files from getting too massive, the logs will only be visible when your server is started and the log file will be deleted each time you click start.
Hopefully this will help a lot of people!
