Common Issues:

  • Ensure that your server.cfg file includes the following lines: sets sv_projectName “Server name” sets sv_projectDesc “Some description”
  • Additionally, make sure that the following line is either commented (#) or removed from your server.cfg to prevent your server from being set as unlisted: #sv_master1 “”

If you’ve implemented the above configurations and your server still doesn’t appear on the server list, it’s advisable to check your console for any potential listing errors. If you encounter an error message like the following:

Server list query returned an error: System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: Connection refused <- System.Net.Http.HttpRequestException: Connection refused (

Add the following lines to your server.cfg, then restart your server:

sv_listingIpOverride “your server’s IP (without :30120)”

After restarting your server, wait approximately 5 minutes, then check both the online server list and the in-game FiveM server list to verify if your server is listed.
