Encountering issues with starting a BungeeCord server can be frustrating. This guide aims to address common causes and provide solutions to help get your BungeeCord server up and running.

Initial Step: Check Server Console

The first step in troubleshooting any server issue, including BungeeCord, is to check the server console for errors. This can provide valuable insights into what might be causing the problem.

Common Causes and Solutions

YAML Configuration Errors

  • The most common issue is errors in the config.yml file. YAML files require precise formatting; even minor mistakes can prevent the file from being read correctly.

  • To resolve YAML errors, paste your config.yml content into a YAML parser like http://yaml-online-parser.appspot.com/ to identify and correct any errors.

Incorrect IP Configuration

  • An incorrect IP address in the config.yml file can also prevent BungeeCord from starting.

  • We recommend using one of the pre-configured BungeeCord versions available on the control panel, as this automatically resolves common IP configuration issues.


Addressing BungeeCord startup issues usually involves checking for errors in the server console and ensuring that the config.yml file is correctly formatted and configured. By following these troubleshooting steps, you can resolve most startup problems and get your BungeeCord server operational.
