Supported ts3 server versions

hello there ,
i am using ts3 for years , i lost my vps not long ago and when i tried to install ts3 server , i faced license problem , searched eanough but didnt find any solution , i think i figured that older versions have this problem and in starting server point it cannot load license.dat then fails . in installed latest version without any problem . now my question is that what is the oldest version supported for starting a server and is this happening to anyone else ? if not why is it happening to me ?

thank you for your response,
by install i meant starting it sorry ,
ik that im limited to 32 slot , but server wont start and crashes . i need 3.7.1 version for my little community .

ts3server has crashed. A crashdump has been generated at “/home/teamspeak/crashd umps/ts3server_3_7_1_linux_amd64_9d30-3dd7-54e2-2232.dmp”

The Default License is only valid until a specific date, so all server admins are forced to update to a newer server version if they use the default license.
Your only way is to update your server to get it run again.
Also old Servers don’t have any support.

is there a list that i can see which server version is expired and which one is still available ?

thanks man ,this is a good community.

my friends use diff servers for diff communities and games , some servers are still 3.0.18 and with new client version they cant join older servers and vice versa . so im confused , my crashing problem is the default license that says no license or smth else ? , cuz i can start new versions but not old versions

Then check the latest version again :sweat_smile:

alright , seems like i cant use older versions , last question , can i restore my old database file from 3.7.1 version to new 3.12 ?


(Just a local fresh setup test server, so credentials are useless)

Also 3.10.2 has this limit:

So I think, the other versions have also limited licenses and because it’s invalid today, the server crashes.

That should be possible.
It’s everytime better to have a backup :smiley:
