Prevent servers from automatically starting

  • I would like to be able to set up my pufferpanel server to have a number of servers listed on it in a single Node. I would then like to be able to choose which of these servers to start once I start the server. The problem is it seems like pufferd automatically starts up all of the servers (which causes my server to run out of resources and crash).

    Is there any way to prevent pufferd from automatically starting the servers so I can manually decide which ones I want to start up?

  • After some additional research I think I have this working. Turns out you can add a simple line of config to the server configuration JSON file. I simply needed to add the following inside the "run" section of the file.

    "autostart": false
