Also add what you already tried so far. I am running my Fivem server on a VPS. It was all working fine until today… I restarted the server and now it just constantly has a cURL error code 7 when players try to connect… I have no idea how to fix this. I’ve restarted as well as rebooted the VPS several times to no avail… I really need to get this server up as soon as I can… Thank you.

Does anyone have any ideas?..

I need this fix…

Have you updated to the latest artifacts?

Yes I have to no avail. I just constantly get the error… It started to happen after we restarted our server and then bam now it’s been constantly happening… However I downloaded a Fivem server creator to test and that server ran fine. I’m wondering if our FXServer artifacts had gotten corrupted or something?

Backup your resources & cfg files, Then completely reinstall all the server files!

Did this, I used the FXServer creator and I can get on that server fine, then I take the latest artifacts replacing the ones it comes with, put my resources and configurations back. cURL error still…

Tried a different port?

Figured it out. Oddly enough it was a server.cfg error… No idea really where the error was… I’m assuming the order of starting some things up and where setting server values were messed it up… Very odd to say the least… Nonetheless for future reference, try a default server.cfg, if that works, then you need to figure out where the problem is in your server.cfg. Will take some troubleshooting, but you’ll figure it out eventually with enough trial and error like I did. I just wish %curl command in Fivem’s discord actually listed all possible problems… They don’t know what they’re talking about…
