Im trying to start a server on my new VPS from gamehosting.co i followed the instructions from downloading the server and i haven’t put any resources in yet.

Step by step

I downloaded

  • Visual C++
  • Server master
  • cfx-server-data

then i put them into a server file

i renamed the “cfx-server-data” to “serverdata"
in the server data folder i made a server.cfg file
support1
i opened the file and copied the server.cfg file from the site
i changed the 'sv_hostname” to my server name
i went to the five m key website
and i registered the key for the server with the ip from the VPS
i copied the key and pasted it next to “sv_LicenseKey"
support2
then i went to the top and changed the 'endpoint_add_tcp” and the "endpoint_add_udp"
to the ip leaving the port alone
than i saved it and ran the server
i copied the ip and pasted it in to my direct connect on my main pc and nothing came up

Try adding quotation marks around the license key.

sv_licenseKey "key_here_in_quotes"


#3

do not change the endpoints, this is not needed to be done unless running more then one server on the same server.


#4

Thanks for the suggestion but it still doesn’t show up in my FiveM even using the direct connect. In command prompt when i load the server it says this.
"Authenticating server license key…
Server license key authentication succeeded. Welcome!"
I don’t know if the key is the problem because it validated the key, but it might be though.
I don’t know to much when it comes to this stuff.


#5

Ya i haven’t changed the port at the end of the IP in the server.cfg. i only changed the IP from
"0.0.0.0" to my VPS IP. Thanks for the suggestion


#6

still dont need to change it… do not change the endpoints unless you plan on running more then one on that specific server.


#7

Not entirely sure if this is the issue or not, but I know that this particular server provider was blacklisted a while ago due to violating FiveM TOS… It could be possible that is the reason you are not able to connect/see your server… (Not 100% sure though)

Also, to double check, your server is up-to-date and there isn’t any firewall/antivirus software blocking anything, correct?


#9

Ya i know that they blacklisted there dedicated servers so they took those down. I bought a VPS from them because you couldn’t buy a dedicated servers anymore. I didn’t think that they blacklisted the servers that were hosted through a VPS though? I’ll send gamehosting.co a email or a support ticket to check about the firewall or if the VPS’s are blacklisted from FiveM.
