How is Epoch working with Linux? Anyone running it with alot of players to test performance?


As we are thinking to switch to dedi box and dont want to pay extra for Windows. So it would be real nice to run Epoch on Linux. :)

Error 3. You need to look into your log file in the logs dir. It will start something like port_ the aswser will be in there. But its probably going to be


1) redis is not running

2) you have the wrong version of the @epoch folder or you have not renamed the Addons to addons

3) you don't have the supporting libs for the epochserver.so do "ldd epochserver.so" see errors

4) you have an issues with you BE

I have a problem where I get stuck at the loading screen when trying to join the server. This also happens to my friends.

I've had some problems with paths etc but fixed them (even if the server was still there and visible). The start script check is showing everything as OK to...

The only error I get when starting the server is:

[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; SteamAPI_IsSteamRunning() failed.

I'm on Debian 8.1  and I've installed redis but can't find any database file so I guess there is some problem there.
