I used to host a server for me and my friends all the time years ago, and recently we just started playing again. I recall back in the day when changes were being made that it was no big deal to shutdown server, make changes, save them, and fire the server back up without any issue...
Now when I make any server setting changes (a few times now), the server will always end up fatal crashing after a few minutes of firing up. (never actually going online).
I know I am rusty at most of this, but I don't think much has changed in this process and I am genuinely confused/frustrated.
