Setting up a ECO server on Ubuntu (other linux is probably very similar)
Please run mono -V and give your output.

Well that looks good. Are you on the discord by chance?

Give me about 10-15 and I'll jump on ok
Ok thanks :)

@kicker22004 ok, i can't do voice chat at the moment though.

The instructions in this post worked for me to set up a Eco server on Ubuntu 17.10.
When installing the beta version of Mono (from link: http://www.mono-project.com/download/beta/#download-lin )
At the time of writing, the instructions there are for Ubuntu 16.04, 14.04, and 12.04.
On Ubuntu 17.10, I followed the instructions for Ubuntu 16.04, which worked despite not being for 17.10.
There's a known bug with tooltips on the Linux server:
This bug is still present in 0.7.0.4 - it's annoying, but doesn't pose a serious obstacle to running a Linux server.
Additional to this, all configuration changes must be done manually to the files in the
Configs/folder, as the GUI configuration editor doesn't work on Linux.
I would suggest:
Configs/Backup.eco- change the backup period from 4-hourly to 1-hourly, with 48 backups retained.
Configs/Network.eco- add a Description line.
Configs/Users.eco- add yourself to the Admins list. (Use your Strange Loop Games id - i.e.

Actually I am having the same issues with Ubuntu 16.04.3 and Mono 18.104.22.168
What I found out is, that if you precreate a world locally on your windows PC, copy it over and then start the server, it surely will work.

Debian 9 with Google Cloud. I get to the part in your video where you say "hit Back" to load the world and it starts throwing this error
I installed lsof and retried running ELSM and it had me just stop and start the server again. Going to check if it works.
Edit2 Electric boogaloo: I threw in a firewall rule each for ingress and egress with the Google Cloud stuff and was finally able to connect. It seems to work! Thank you so much for making this.

I tried the ELSM today and got the following error on server startup:
System.AggregateException: One or more errors occurred. ---> System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> Newtonsoft.Json.JsonSerializationException: Could not create an instance of type Eco.WorldGenerator.ITerrainModule. Type is an interface or abstract class and cannot be instantiated. Path 'TerrainModule.Modules.Modules.Default', line 76, position 22. -- Full dump: Crash AggregateException 02175725.ecodmp
I tried 7.1.1 and 7.1.2.
Is this a mono-related error or did I forgot something? :D

What would be the process for updating the server?

Thanks so much for your work here, I subscribed your channel in support hope you get to monetized again soon. What I the recommended way to reset the world and start over? It did seem that my world upgraded automagicly to the latest beta when I created it even though not in the list.
Hmm guess I should look at the menu closer since there is a world reset option....
