Been hosting this game on my personal server. But when I swithed hosting companies to an outside company. When I run the server this is all I get. I dont get any errors or anything just says goodbye?

Any ideas? I have tons of ideas!

1. World peace through Factorio: if everyone in the world was playing Factorio, there would be no time for wars or terrorism. Multiplayer battles decide who wins any arguments!

2. I nominate your post for this week's Most Useless Subject award. Did you include a single word in the subject to let us know what we were going to read about? Nope! But you left it wide open so I could have some fun here and I hope the devs do too 8-)

3. I am delighted that you are enjoying Factorio, I love this game! Welcome to the forums! To help you make better posts in the future, there are a couple of features I would like to sell you! When you copy and paste in your server error logs, you can use the "Code" button - this puts the log text into a little scrolling text box so it doesn't take up pages on the screen. You can also use the spoiler button to completely hide the log text at a click of your mouse.

Back to mega-base building!

I'm not sure if that was more filled with salt or sarcasm :P.

@Jap2.0 I accept your feedback. Years of dealing with bug reports have left me twitchy on the subject of meaningful subject lines, leading to my somewhat snarky response. @Troybox1991 I apologize if my feedback was overly harsh, and thank you for taking the time to edit your post.

Nah, you're fine, I just found it kind of funny.

It's okay. I apologize for not being more specific. I had been working on it for hours and was pretty ticked for a lack of better words.

For reference the error I had was in the json server settings file. You can use a json file checker online. Where I had my admins listed at the bottom of the file I for got to put them in "" for instance the correct way was ["troybox1991"] after fixing the file the server booted right up and worked.

If anyone else has this issue I hope this helps them out.
