Server Deployment on Linux

Hello,
I was trying to run a simple Bolt server on a linux machine, but I coudn't make it work, clients coudn't connect to it. The server doesn't crash or anything, and I don't know where the problem could be.

I compiled it as Linux x86_64 headless.

This is what the server does at the start up:

void Awake() { serverPort = BoltRuntimeSettings.instance.debugStartPort; } void OnGUI() { /* ... */ BoltLauncher.StartServer(new UdpEndPoint(UdpIPv4Address.Any, (ushort)serverPort)); BoltNetwork.LoadScene("Level1"); /* ... */ }

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

  • First, I would make sure the dedicated server works on windows first, before trying linux, assuming that is your dev environment simply because it is easier and you can test locally. Second, I would log the crap out of everything when you first setup your dedicated server and check the logs of the deployment for exceptions after you run it (along with your logs) to make sure it is doing what you expect it to be doing.
  • Yes, I tried it on Windows first, and it worked flawlessly. This is the log from the server at the start up:

    Mono path[1] = '/ServerBolt/lin_server_headless/lin_server_headless_Data/Mono'

    I don't really know what it's supposed to look like on linux, however I don't see anything strange with this log. Moreover, there are not exception while it runs or I try to connect a client...
