Problem Description

Issue

Hi, I recently bought a Palworld server to use, however after the initial install of all the games files, it seems to be stuck on preparing to start. The SFTP Port shows as green but the others including the game port show as red (offline). I’ve also completely shut down and restarted the server but the process repeats itself. Any fix for this?

Reproduction Steps

  • I made the decision to go with Palworld as our game server of choice. This was the initial step in setting up our game session
  • Once the decision was made, the installation process kicked off, downloading and configuring all the necessary game files essential for the server’s operation
  • After the completion of the installation, the console displayed the message “preparing to start.” However, despite waiting patiently, there was no progress. The system seemed stuck at this phase.
