Help - simple install on Linux Server


Recommended Posts

This is supposed to be a simple server for friends without mods or admin tools.



OS: Ubuntu 19.04 (64-bit)

Processor: 8 Cores Intel® Xeon® E5-2630v4

Memory: 30 GB RAM

Hard Drive: 400 GB available space


steamcmd is installed


-> mkdir 7days


-> /home/steam/steamcmd/steamcmd.sh +login user password +force_install_dir /home/steam/7days +app_update 294420 validate +quit


-> nano start_7days.sh


./7DaysToDieServer.x86_64 -configfile=serverconfig.xml -logfile 7DaysToDie_Data/output_log.txt $@


-> chmod a+x start_7days.sh


-> nano serverconfig.xml


I use this settings -> https://pastebin.com/mwAyrmHp


I take my Map form ...\AppData\Roaming\7DaysToDie\Saves and load in this Folder -> .../.local/share/7DaysToDie/Saves




-> screen -S 7days




In Alpha 17, that worked well.

Now "GameServer could not be initialized" and nobody can join the server.

What am I doing wrong?

Probably it is the steam-library again, seen this a few times whenever ubuntu was used as OS.


7D2D and ubuntu have or had a dispute where to look for steamclient.so . People fixed this through linking that library (which is to be found in the installation dir of 7D2D itself) to /usr/lib/ (if I remember correctly).


In your case the problem could also be that you rolled your own start-script. Maybe use "startserver.sh" in the installation dir, because that script has the line "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=." , which should normally get that library included.



But check the error log.
