Logging for people running a dedicated server

Just a tip i'd throw out, if you're running a dedicated server and everything has been running well, you can modify your run script to divert the stdout to a file for an easier troubleshooting experience.

On windows it's done by modifying the .bat you use to run the server by adding

>>file_name_here.txt

at the end of the run line. it would look like this

valheim_server -all_the_regular_info_here >> file_name_here.txt

This will create a new file in the run directory with the output of the console. To capture the errors as well as the output you can run the following:

valheim_server -all_the_regular_info_here >> file_name_here.txt 2>> error_file_name.err

For linux the process is exactly same thankfully, except instead of modifying the .bat file for windows you're modifying the .sh file.

Hope this helps anyone wanting better logging.
