Local server doesn't shut down automatically

When I start the server via cmd and then try to shut it down by exiting the log window it doesn’t actually shut down the server. I end up having to hunt down the process and force closing it. Is this expected?

Thank you in advance.

Hi and welcome to the community.

When you close the log, do you close the window or press CTRL+C? closing the window could leave it open in the background although I’ve never seen this myself.

Can you confirm which version of Unreal you are using?

Thanks.
