- When you start your server with friipanel for the first time, sometimes nothing happen...
You'll have to start it manually in ssh (putty) with :
./start-xxx start
where start-xxx is the name you choose in your friipanel parameters.


My server doesn't start/stop/restart what's wrong ?

First thing to check is if the user who's trying to start/stop/restart has all the right to execute the script.
try "chown -R USER.users /home/USE" as root on your game server.
Then be sure that your server wasn't started before you install the script. The game server has to be stopped before using with Friipanel.
Finaly if the game server doesn't start/stop/restart check after 30 seconds to refresh the phgstats because some server take some times to start.

I got this error : "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING" in my language file. What's wrong ?

You forget to put a "\" before your "'" in your translation.
ex: $lang_edt_saved = 'Saved : Don't forget to restart the server';
Should be : $lang_edt_saved = 'Saved : Don\'t forget to restart the server';

My language is not supported. What can i do ?

Copy "lang/en.php" into "lang/your_lang.php" and translate it. (if possible send it to me)
then add your flag into "lang/your_lang.gif".
