SmartFox Restarting Itself

Postby yqtang » 30 Jun 2022, 14:19

Hello,
I've been using SmartFox2.18 and it's running well. The only thing is it keeps trying to restart itself everyday around 12am UTC. It happens everyday. Earlier the restart would finish and the server would continue running, but lately it just shut down and never restart. It would take a manual start to make the server run again. How can I stop this automatic restart at 12am UTC everyday? The following is a typical log of the end of the previous day and the start of a new day and :

The end of June 28:

Also as you can notice, all these server logs are doubled for some reason. Could someone offer some help on this issue? Thanks!

Hi,
there is no mechanism in SFS2X that triggers a restart so you need to find the cause of this behavior outside of SFS2X itself.
A possible reason is that you have some task in your OS that is attempting to restart some services, for reasons I can't imagine.

I would check for cron jobs if it's a Linux OS and also investigate the system's logs to understand what is happening.

Let us know

Hi Lapo,

It turns out to be a crontab process that runs daily and that script didn't properly restart the server. Thank you again!
