Setup Help


May 2, 2020
First time setting up a server from scratch, and I've gotten everything configured correctly on my VPS, but as soon as I attempt to use most commands ([worldbuild, [add, etc.) the server crashes so I am apparently doing something wrong, but I cannot put my finger on what.

I downloaded everything fresh from the repo yesterday, the client files it's pointing to in datapath.cs are just the vanilla classic client.

The DLL it claims it can't find is in the same directory, and I am running as administrator.


I feel like I am overlooking something incredibly simple here.

Any help would be appreciated.
