I may have found the exact problem. The file in /dev/shm/ keeps deleting after some time I let the server run. When I refresh the folder after it has crashed, it’s not there anymore, and by executing the script with “status” yields " Server seems to have died ". What can I do?

A bit of context, I’m administrating a local domestic server through SSH, and I’ve setup a crontab to start the integrated script. I frequently use tmux.

Please bear in mind that I am a Linux newbie. I’ve already extensively searched online, but found nothing.

Thank you for your help.

Glad you found out why the server ends wit that error.

More a linux question than a TS question.


It worked! I edited:




and ultimately changing its bool value to no:


It’s been 3 hours and a half, and nothing bad happened. Thank you!

Just for any-one else’s information. I found that running TS3server on the same user that you login into ssh with and exiting from the shell with “exit” will cause this similar issue. Even changing RemovalIPC to =no did not resolve the issue…
