SYNOPSIS

emp_server [-dFhpsv] [-e configfile] [-E action] [-R seed]
emp_server [-i |-I service-name] [-e configfile]
emp_server [-u |-U service-name]

DESCRIPTION

emp_server is a daemon which listens to the Empire port for players connecting to the game. For more information on the game of Empire, see the info pages within the game.

OPTIONS

-d Debug mode. This will prevent the server from forking itself into the background. Implies -E abort. You normally want to use this flag if you are running emp_server from within a debugger.
-e configfile
  Use game configuration in configfile.
-E action
  What to do on recoverable internal error ("oops"): abort, crash-dump (but continue), nothing (default). crash-dump works by aborting a fork of the server process.
-F Force emp_server to start even when game state looks bad. Risks crashes and further corruption; use this only for attempting to fix up problems. Better make a backup first, and lock out players.
-h Help. Print brief usage information and exit.
-i Install as a Windows Service called "Empire Server".
-I service-name
  Install as a Windows Service with the specified name.
-p Threading debug mode. Implies -d.
-u Uninstall the Windows Service called "Empire Server".
-U service-name
  Uninstall the Windows Service with the specified name.
-s Enable thread stack checking.
-R seed Set the seed for random function.
-v Print version information and exit.

OPERANDS

Operands are ignored for backward compatibility. Their use is deprecated.

SIGNALS

SIGHUP Request emp_server to reopen log files and reload its configuration. This allows proper log rotation. Only the update schedule is reloaded at this time.
SIGINT, SIGTERM
  Request emp_server to shut down immediately.

RESTRICTIONS

When using the service control manager (Services Window), the start parameters are not processed. The only parameters processed are the ones supplied during service installation. To modify the startup parameters, you must remove the service and reinstall the service.
