    Backward compatability

    <12:26:20> Trying to resolve hostname ***********************
    <12:26:22> Trying to connect to server on *********************
    <12:26:23> Disconnected from server (server version is too old for command)

    This is why people hate to update. Make the new update work with older versions. How much of a nobrainer is that?

    The servers that aren't supported are quite old, and there have been 6 server releases that are compatible. In other words these servers haven't been updated for over a year and ignored 6 updates.

    New features require new servers. The new client will not be compatible with these old servers.

    I think everyone is in the same boat with this. Personally I'm not a professional linux administrator so without a graceful or automatic way to provide updates it's hardly someone's fault for skipping them.

    I suggest one of the following:
    1) Provide packages for common linux distributions and allow the package manager to handle the updates.
    2) Provide a script in the install folder that the user can run or create a cron job to run to help with this process.


    I know you guys make money off of hosted solutions and it is in your best interest to make it difficult to host your own, but this is what is pushing people away. You have the superior product, give administrators frustration free tools to maintain it.

    If people would update continuously, this problem would not occur at all...

    Next fact is you can connect to older TS3-Servers.

    This are the supported ones(with release date):

    • Server Release 3.2.0 - 14 may 2018
    • Server Release 3.1.3 - 30 april 2018
    • Server Release 3.1.2 - 24 april 2018
    • Server Release 3.1.1 - 26 february 2018
    • Server Release 3.1.0 - 14 february 2018




    How much of a nobrainer is that?
    To say teamspeak would be a nobrainer, if people don't update since over 5 versions is of course "very legitimate"...


    Have a nice day

    Updating a TeamSpeak3 Server on Linux is done in less then five (5!) seconds... you can even script it so that it runs on it's own.

    Future versions will have to be updated more often because the No License is limited to a timeframe.

    using console is easy. But, you need to allows read the release notes first. On version required a new parameter or creating a file to acknowledge you accept the agreements before it would start.


    wget [link to your server version]
    cd [ts3 folder]
    [stop server]
    cd ..
    tar -cjf [new preupdate backup file] [ts3folder]
    tar -xjf [downloaded update]
    cd [ts3 folder]
    [start server]

    if all worked you are good, if there is an issue restore the back up (after getting server logs for review) if you need to keep server up as much as possible.

    Any server admin should be subscribed to the announcements area of the forum so they are keep upto date on releases and even security concerns that they may need to watch out for. The announcement post also normally include notes about out of normal steps needed for an update example the 3.1.0 update announcement: https://forum.teamspeak.com/threads/...3-1-0-released
