Server Trouble

I previously ran a Gmod Server for me and my friend to build on, recently when I start the Server it says “Server is out of date. Please update and restart”

I updated all of the SVN Folders

Ran the following commands to see if they would work:

Update Try 1:

@echo off
cd c:\srcds\
echo This will take a long time, I would recommend you go do something else.
echo Updating/installing CS:S
hldsupdatetool -command update -game "Counter-Strike Source" -dir C:\srcds
echo Updating/installing dods
hldsupdatetool -command update -game "dods" -dir C:\srcds
echo Updating/installing hl2mp
hldsupdatetool -command update -game "hl2mp" -dir C:\srcds
echo Updating/installing tf
hldsupdatetool -command update -game "tf" -dir C:\srcds
echo Updating/installing Garrysmod
hldsupdatetool -command update -game garrysmod -verify_all -retry -dir C:\srcds
echo Update/installation Complete
echo Installed to c:\srcds\
echo Your server is now ready to use!
echo To add extra addons or maps etc. place them in c:\srcds\orangebox\garrysmod\
echo This installer can also update necessary server files, so it is recommended that you run it often.

Update Try 2:

@echo off

echo (%time%) Change dir so we can run the update tool properly!
cd c:\srcds
echo (%time%) Changed DIR with no problems, now run the update tool
start /wait hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game "garrysmod" -dir "C:\srcds\games\orangebox"
echo (%time%) UPDATING DONE! Now start the server

echo -----------------------------------------------------
goto srcds

I ran one of the above batch files, started the server then tried the other and ran the Server, both didn’t update.

Here is my Server launch command:

srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod -port 27015 +maxplayers 16 +map GM_Ocean +sv_gamemode sandbox +sv_defaultgamemode sandbox

It worked fine before, I just can’t update it.

Bump, help :S

“Server is out of date. Please update and restart”

This means that the version of the Garry’s Mod your server has doesn’t match your version, which means you need to update it. It’s easier to just do it through command prompt like you installed the server in the first place.

hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game garrysmod dir .

I just did this:


hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game garrysmod -dir C:\srcds\games\orangebox

It said No installation record found at _________ a few times then started to download some stuff

Still says “Server is out of date. Please update and restart”

Can someone post the exact command I use to update GMOD? My installation location is “C:\srcds”

%HLDS Update Tool Folderpath%\hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game garrysmod -dir C:\srcds

I ran the above command and it said Server is up to date.

Then I launched the Server and it said “server is out of date. please update and restart”


Do I need to update something else? Like the SVN files, or what?
