ROBLOX Studio gave out the following error today:
Error while starting server: Failed to start network server, port:53640, error id:6
on my Mac OS Catalina 10.15.5.
I have tried:
lsof -i :53640 however nothing it outputted. I’ve reset my computer and reinstalled ROBLOX Studio as well.
Edit for More Info:
I do not crash in Studio. This is a studio-specific bug. This bug happens to all my games in Studio, even when I open an empty baseplate. Everything else runs smoothly.
Edit Update 2:
I found that there are no log files for Roblox. Actually, there isn’t even a Roblox folder for my Mac’s logs under its library!
Edit Update 3:
I used a new computer to get the logs.
Anyone else experiencing this issue?
Anyone know how to resolve this error?
I had this same error, it resolved itself when Roblox Studio was updated and I was promoted to allow it though my computer’s firewall.
I recommend post this in Studio Bugs and that way you could perhaps get a solution there. Unless it is like what @UltChowsk said where you just need to update studio.
It’s already through my Firewall. Unfortunately, this isn’t the answer.
Thank you for notifying me. I moved it to Studio Bugs.
When reinstalling Studio, did you make sure to delete the server program file and rerun it when it was installed? I forgot to mention that, my bad.
Ah, no. I didn’t know there was such a file. Thanks for letting me know. Mind telling me where I could locate it? Unless you mean the server.rbxl file which I did delete for reinstallation.
I am also experiencing this, I got the same error, and 10 seconds later my studio crashed and I lost 3 hours of my work.
Was having severe Datastore and texture / mesh load failures around the time you posted this.
I do mean the server.rbxl file, did you try running it without Studio open at all after reinstalling Studio?
Thank you. I’ve added the information to my original post.
Please include logs as mentioned in How to post a Bug Report
I unfortunately do not have any log files or any Roblox folder under logs.
Yes, I have. The error still reoccurs when hitting Start for the local server
Update: I deleted every single ROBLOX file on my computer and installed Studio again but I do not get log files and keep the same error. It seems to be a Mac OS issue that Studio has. Hopefully, it’ll one day be updated to be fixed on Mac. Other than that, I don’t believe there’s a fix for this error.
I recommend using Windows when developing on ROBLOX Studio to avoid this issue on Mac if you have one.
I used a new computer to get the log files.
I got the logs from a new computer. I’ll message you them privately due to the sensitive information.
