    I have been trying for weeks to set up a server...but cant get it to work...
    I followed instructions painstakingly...get the dedicated server running...but when i join from the gaming PC i get
    unable to install server mod possibly due to missing content.

    I can see that the client PC had the track and car already installed. and that the server mod has downloaded onto the client successdully.
    i decided to delete the server and car and track mods from the client..then i rejoined the server...and the server mod downloaded again, but not the track or car mod.

    i checked the track and car versions match. fine...
    i checked the packages folder on the dedicated server and the Client.. all fine
    steam versions are up to date

    Please help...it has been hours of effort and it feels so CLOSE to working...

    No, i have admitted defeat....
    i tried to follow another tutorial which uses AWS CloudFormation, but their AWS template doesnt actually work
    I found a couple of companies who say they can build me one. MarkMods (dont recommend as the FTP software was blocked by Norton anti-virus software as Dangerous) and now SAdler = awaiting the build.....

    Could you tell us what folders there are in those folders of the server?
    ..\rFactor 2\Installed\Locations\Silverstone_2016\
    ..\rFactor 2\Installed\Vehicles\Radical_SR3-RSX_2017\

    Can you clarify what was downloaded from the server and what no?
    Can you give us the name of the server to check ourselves what happen when we try to connect?
