Stopping the server?
Hey guys great resource site. I was hoping someone could answer what will surely be regarded as an easy noob question. Believe it or not, besides the methods that I've tried I can't Google up any more info, and the forum search function seems to be busted.

I've been setting up a dedicated server on a remote linux box, and everything is working perfectelly. Except for the fact that I can't shut the server down, haha

my run line is:

./srcds_run -game cstrike +map cs_office +maxplayers 16 +ip -debug &

While I was testing the server out, I assumed that a ctrl+c would stop it, (didn;t 100% understand what the & did till afterwards)so I have three instances of the server running, all serving different maps, and the users have a 1 in 3 chance of getting into the right server with the rest of the team.

I've tried the in game rcon_password mypass, and rcon killserver, and I get an error mesage "Unable to connect to remote server (" I'm not sure what that's all about, maybe an effect from the &?

I have su access to the entire linux box, so if it comes down to it, I can kill the process (not sure how to pull that off via linux cli)

Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated Smile
Another recent thread on the same topic:

I would suggest installing "screen", so you can easily re-attach to the server's console.

As mentioned in that thread, you can kill it via screen or "top".
