Gear glitch?

So when you die on my server your bag doesn’t stay, instead when you spawn you have all your stuff. but when you are kill wile offline (sleeping) your bag does fall and can be looted. can anyone tell me how to fix this or is it just a glitch in the patch?

When you set up a server, you have an option to turn keeping items on death on and off.

Which of the two actions you mentioned is the one that’s not working as intended?

ok so keeping items on death is a server side thing, am i able to just turn the server off and set it to off? because i feel like its a glitch because if you keep ur stuff when you die, why would you loose your stuff if your offline. (i did test it.) i killed someone sleeping and there stuff dropped, but then i killed someone wile they were online and nothing dropped.
