IMPORTANT: Do not set two tasks to run at the same time, they will clash and neither will work properly. For example, if you set up automated backups to occur every 2 hours starting at 12:00AM, do not also set up server restarts to occur every 2 hours at 12:00AM

IMPORTANT: Avoid creating tasks within an hour either side of 04:00 AM to avoid performing scheduled task during our disaster recovery backup window/time.

 

 

If you want to have an action scheduled for example restart your server every morning at 6am simply follow the steps below

  1. Log into your game panel.
  2. Select game services then click on the server you wish to create a scheduled task for.
  3. At the top of the page there is a scheduled tasks tab, click to go into the tab.
  4. Click new, select the task that you wish to schedule.
  5. Click new (under the task you have just selected).
  6. Give the task a name (such as 6am server reboot) select the options you wish (there are also a few options under advanced options).
  7. Click save.



If you want a scheduled task to run every 6 hours follow the steps below

  1. Log into your game panel.
  2. Select game services then click on the server you wish to create a scheduled task for.
  3. At the top of the page there is a scheduled tasks tab, click to go into the tab.
  4. Click new, select the scheduled restart.
  5. Click new under the now selected schedule restart box.
  6. Give the task a name (such as 4am server reboot).
  7. Set the "Type" to "Daily".
  8. Give it a start time/date (this is just when the task will initially start so you can set the reboot every 6 hours to start tomorrow for example).
  9. Set it to recur every 1 day and tick "repeat task".
  10. Set repeat every to 6 hours and set "for" to 24.
  11. Save the task.

 

How to choose time zone:

When logged into the game panel, navigate to My Profile, from here you will see a list of editable content, changing time zone here will change the time that automatic restarts take place, for example if your time zone is set to UTC and you create a restart for 6PM this will take place at 6PM UTC however if you update your time zone to UTC + 2 the server would restart at 8PM UTC

 

If after following this guide you still have issues, please raise a support ticket via your client area.
