Teamspeak Start on Boot & Restart on Crash

Posted September 11, 2014 4.1k views


I’m running a teamspeak server on a Ubuntu droplet and i’m looking for a script that can start the TS service on boot & restart it if it crashes.

I’ve googled the question and while the result are many, nothings consistent and everyone has an opinion on the right and wrong way of doing things.

I stumbled upon this on the TS forums, but it’s rather old. Is it still relevant?

My knowledge is pretty low, i’ve been able to setup TS and JTS3 Bot. But anything else is a little out of my comfort zone.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and rewarded with beer should our paths cross.

  • Hi Mage,

    Thanks for the reply. Monit looks extremely powerful lots of info on the website. However it’s a paid for bit of software. While i have no objection to spending a bit of cash, it seems a bit over kill for a $5 vps. But this would work and i’m sure will help others.


  • Don’t be confused by MMonit

    There two versions:

    1. monit - Open Source version
    2. MMonit - more powerful commercial one

    You can use monit on one of your personal servers for free. MMonit is a professional tool for server farm
