Frequently Asked Questions


Recommended Posts

Greetings Survivors! Hope you are all enjoying Palworld, our team has complied a list of frequently asked questions! Below you can find these questions as well as answers to help you get your server up and running without having to wait for our support teams intervention!

How do I direct connect to my server with a password enabled?

Below you will find instructions on how to log into your password protected Palworld server!

Currently searching for your server in the server browser is unreliable, we recommend using the direct connect option!

  • Click "Join a Multiplayer Game"
  • Enter your servers IP and Port into the direct connect box at the bottom of the server browser!
  • If your server has a password, be sure to check the "Enter Password" box
  • Click "Connect" you will be prompted to enter your servers password
  • Click "Ok" to join your server!
My server keeps randomly stopping?

There are potentially a number of reasons for this.

1/ Our automated system is shutting down a number of game servers on a target machine if the CPU spikes too high

We are working on getting this fixed right now and over the coming days will see less and less "intervention" stops.

2/ Palworld server crashing. This is fully expected for early access games.

You can try to do a "Reinstall Server" from your game server panel and restore your data using the Backup/Restore method in the panel. 

To fully know and understand which case your game server falls under, please submit a support ticket.

Why isn't my server showing in the server browser?

The Palworld server browser is very limited at the moment and as a result finding your server in the server browser is next to impossible. The developers have stated the reason which you can see in the below image! source (view Q&A section)

For now, the best way to connect is to use the direct connect box on the server list. Using this method, you will not be able to enter a password!

My Server keeps crashing as soon as I start it?

If your server is crashing very shortly after startup it could be an issue with the config file. One step you can take to address this issue without support intervention would be to re-save your Modify Server Config Tool

  • Once it is open, navigate to the bottom and press the orange "Save Configuration" button
  • If the server continues to crash after select the "Reinstall Server Toggle" to reinstall your server
