    "Can't resolve hostname"

    Hi there,

    I just now updated my Minecraft server to 1.0 vanilla. Though now when I want to connect I get the problem of "Can't resolve hostname" and when I force my connection through direct connect I get this: "Unknown host '<IP HERE>'.

    Does anyone know if I did something wrong?

    My log says this:
    Server failed in under 30 seconds ( possible config error? )

    Kind regards,
    Miyara

    Check the server log to see what the real error is.

    K, I've only ever got that error when RCON cannot connect to the server or I miss spelt the jar file. When ever it gives the possible config error no other errors get logged. This might be better to look at it directly.

    Miyara have you got a ticket put in ?

    FTP reset will fix it 9 times out of 10.

    That error sounds very much like a DNS error, have you tried connecting just by IP?

    cigy what steps did you take ?

    New profile > Vannilla > "possible config" error ?

    Or did you update it your self. With the FTP reset thing you should only have to use the middle option. Something is stopping the server from loading. You have to just trying figure out what that is
