Server wont start on ubuntu 20.04

Solution: I had two instances installed. Fixed now.

My VPS Info.
Provider: Vultr
OS: Ubuntu 20.04 x64

I tried using this guide to install it:

This is what’s causing the issue. Another application is using port 30033. You can use netstat -tulpen to get a human readable list of open ports on your system.


looks like 30033 is being used by ts3server.

tcp 0 0* LISTEN 1001 77148 7096/./ts3server
tcp6 0 0 :::30033 :::* LISTEN 1001 77149 7096/./ts3server

As this:

And confirmed by this:

You are already running another instance of ts3server, stop it and then start your server

I’m a bit confused. How did two instances of ts3server start? And how do I make sure only one is running.

And lastly, when I try to get the privilege key, using this command:

cat /home/teamspeak/logs/ts3server_

It gives some errors. Saying again, that the instance is already running. Not sure what is going on.

This has been resolved. You can close it. Thanks.

For the future:
you can see it doing htop
if it doesn’t work, install it:
sudo apt-get install htop
