Dedicated Server fails to start(Solved)

  • Closed

Hey all, last night dedicated server ran perfectly fine(however my internet shut down so I was using a personal hotspot) and for the beginning of this morning. This morning, however, I rolled it back one day and it fails to start. My other servers run fine and I tried disabling mods on the original server, but it still failed to start. Dont starve together has Administrator access. Providing server master and cave files below. If any other files are required, please notify me.

server_log.txt server_log.txt

Steps to Reproduce

I was using a personal hotspot when this occured. I cannot recall, though I think my computer shutdown fine. Attaching dxdiag file below

Remember to make a backup before deleting or editing save files!

Try to open the save file 0000000233 of your caves server with an editor like notepad++.
Most likely it will be empty or truncated somewhere. You can try to delete the broken/empty save files. You might have to check which of your overworld saves corresponds to the next-recent caves save and also remove more recent overworld saves.

Ok so I found the file and nothing is in it, what do I do?

Never mind I deleted the empty save files and it worked, thanks
