What I have been having with my server the last few days is that there are massive holes all over my land; you can try jumping in them but you only go about one block down then you get stuck if you're on survival, and have to be /tp to get out. The other problem is that sometimes the server says UNABLE TO LOCATE SIGNS and all the stuff that I did just 5 minutess ago just vanishes. I think that's part of the holes in the ground bug.

    What version is the server running? Are there any mods or plugins? Also, how does the server "say" this?

  • Did anything change in the last few days before this started happening? Commented Feb 5, 2013 at 21:16
  • This seems like a chunk error? Usually disconnecting and reconnecting will fix it.

  • The holes are chunk errors for sure

Making sure the server software is completely up to date is always a good idea and first place to start.

I'm not sure of the problem's cause, but it's most likely server-side lag. It can be reduced by allocating more RAM to the server. Before you do this, try renaming the 'world' folder of the server. Launching it again will generate a new world. This will fix any world corruption problems.


It's most likely server lag. I've seen this on Mineplex & Hypixel before, and whenever I see the message, I lag when I try to double jump. It's mainly server lag, but it can be something else.
