Problem with map-server

Post by rvitorper » Sun Sep 04, 2011 3:38 pm

Hi,

I've installed the eAthena server and, at first, it worked. However, recently, I've been having some issues with the map-server. Here is the output of the map-server when I try to execute it:

Code: Select all

cd: 3: can't cd to world/map
Someone help me please! I followed thoroughly the How to Develop wiki steps, twice! And I yet can't play.

You have to start the servers from within the tmwa-server-data folder, using e.g. ./map-server

(though of course this is actually a wrapper that sets the *real* folder and executes the *real* executable)

I'm actually doing that, executing the map-server from the eathena-data folder

Try the command manually and see where it fails. From the eathen-data directory, run

$ cd world/map
$ map-server &

You do need to have the "map-server" binary (the one built from the source code) in your path. I chose to put it in ~/bin, but really any place is fine as long as it's in your $PATH (bash) or $path (csh).

Does 'git status' say anything?

Also, are you tracking tmw/tmwa-server-data or +tmw-admins/tmw/tmwa-server-test, and what is your purpose of running your own server?
