ARK server updates 310.76 and 310.90 not available on Linux servers?

I'm running a linux dedicated ARK server. Today a few players reported troubles connecting to the server due to outdated mods on the server. I double checked and all mods were up to date. Same for the server version being offered through Steam. While checking this I noticed that the latest two released server updates 310.76 and 310.90 were not installed and are still not available to this point. The server is still running on 310.68. Anyone else seeing this?

Having the same problem as y'all, I have a Linux server off a hosting website (shockbyte) but whenever I look at the servers details in the server browser it shows the build version of 310.68 instead of 310.90 like the majority of servers. My friend is having problems connecting to the server, like crashing at Snapshot_9 and Mod version mismatch (Might not be related)

Well, I raised a support ticket 19 hours ago since I got no response to this forum post. No response on that either so far.

I just checked https://ark-servers.net/ for Linux servers running 310.76 or 310.90. Not a single one listed. All Linux servers are running 310.68 or older. I guess there isn't much we can do on our end.

No update on my ticket. No reaction via Twitter either.

But: I saw that at least the available version was bumped up. 

At the time that I initially opened this post the server build version was 5036335. Now it is 5057242. The current server version should be 310.94 but it's still identifying itself as 310.68.

Here's my new theory: They did push the last few updates to Steam for Linux dedicated servers but forgot to bump the version number up in the executable. 

I case you want to check for yourself what the latest version is: 

Quote

/var/games/steam/steamcmd.sh +login anonymous +app_info_update 1 +app_info_print 376030 +quit

Look out for the buildid. If you run 

Quote

/var/games/steam/steamcmd.sh +login anonymous +app_info_update 1 +app_info_print 376030 +quit | grep build

it will only report the buildids. The first one is the one you're looking for.

Alternatively you can check out the depot info on SteamDB

 

After some more digging I found that this isn't happening the first time. Seems to be a recurring issue with them not bumping up the version number on Linux server releases.

So we're just stuck waiting for Wildcard to notice?  There's only a few threads talking about this.  Are 99% of the people hosting the game doing so on Windows?  I'd switch to Windows Server if the license wasn't so damn expensive.

I guess so. They're just playing dead on all channels. And from what I've seen the majority are hosting ARK servers on Windows. I can't blame them though. The ARK Linux dedicated server is the worst I've ever hosted.

Ahh nothing as fun as installing a server then messing with it for 2 hours because you think there may be something wrong since it won't connect, only to realize you cannot connect due to no fault of your own.

 

 

And the greatest part: A server restart takes always 10 minutes.😒
