Doesnt work.

I tried it ingame before I was kicked and from BF2CC. It looks like the version is too old.

I ftp'd in and i don't see a normal pb folder. If it found it - the folder looks empty. Very strange directory setup. Leads me to wonder how you can get in and tweak your pb settings (streaming to pb or pbbans, SS settings etc.

I am used to a dedicated server setup. On a dedicated server I could fix this running pb setup.

Anyone run into similar issues?

I try but I not see anything...nothing happened....

The server must be running?

I must install pb update module?

Is it say anything in the log whe update?

I am having the same issue. I tried the method above with no luck. I even rebooted the server. What other options do we have? Can I manually update the server?

When you log in to main acct here at gameservers Tom on the server you will see a mods section with a tab called "UPDATE PB" click that. It should apply newest pb settings if not put in a support ticket for it sometimes it wont take easily. I have 7 servers 2 goin offline an 5 that just ordered an i have had to go to support for 1 of them, they fixed it pretty fast.

The version of PB that currently installs with the game typically will NOT update with the update mod. The version is too old to be updated that way. Luckily for me, i copied and pasted my pbconfig from one of my dedicated servers into this one and it allowed it to update.
Also, add the following to your config to keep it "alive" especially when streaming to pbbans or punksbusted.

;PB UCON Settings / Lists
pb_sv_usessionlimit 8
pb_sv_ucontimeout 300
pb_sv_uconmaxsendrate 16
