Could not register the local accounting service: The file already exists

No connection to the server possible. As soon as I want to connect, only the warning sound Error comes, and that permanently one after the other.

Here is the log:

Check if these steps help you

Was just about to restart the server because crashed.

Found ts3server.pid, but no server running. Possibly your previously started server crashed
Please see the log file for details.
Starting the TeamSpeak 3 server
TeamSpeak 3 server started, please see the logfile for details

Just checked all processes, no more for Teamspeak there

However, because TS did not respond, I also completely reinstalled the server. So there should really be all the data from gone

However, the 1st time the server was started via root, accidentally

Have you an old server running on another instance?

I think the old server is still running or was killed.

How can I find out if something is still running somewhere? Under active processes I see nothing

Your Server shows the following Error:

The Reason could be:

A file was created by root and can’t be used by your non-root user.

Fix:
Check for a cryptic file in /dev/shm/

ls -al /dev/shm/
total 39228
drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 1800 Dez 5 11:41 .
drwxr-xr-x 17 root root 3640 Nov 13 06:47 …
-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 128 Dez 5 11:41 7gbhujb54g8z9hu43jre8

And remove the cryptic file now with the following command:

rm /dev/shm/7gbhujb54g8z9hu43jre8

If you start your TeamSpeak Server now, the file will be created with the correct user.
