  2. Connection Info - This is your game server's IP and Port for DIRECT CONNECTION.

  5. FTP Info - This is your game server's FTP IP and Port for CONNECTING TO YOUR GAME SERVER USING FTP, so you can manage files quickly and easily.
  6. Status - This shows the current status of your server, the varius status values are: Running (The server has completed the startup process, is online, ready for connection), Stopped (Server is offline) and StartError (Server has encountered a fatal error during startup and needs fixing, we highly suggest you contact our support service if this happens)
  7. Stop/Start/Restart buttons - Self-explanatory.
  8. More button - this provides access to additional functions, most importantly, the "Reinstall" function - this allows you to revert the server back to a default state.
  9. Player / CPU / Memory Monitor - This allows you to see the amount of players, amount of CPU usage (% of entire CPU, not one core) and Memory/RAM (% of your currently purchased amount of Memory/RAM) if the bars go red, that means your server is overusing the resource and will be shutdown/stopped.
  10. Auto Refresh Toggle - This allows you to change the monitoring explained previously from every 5 minutes to live monitoring - useful if you are troubleshooting your server.
  11. Configuration Files - This is where you can change the server settings to suit your desires. One thing to remember is that commandline settings overwrite configuration file settings.
  12. Commandline Manager - This is where you can change the server settings to suit your desires. One thing to remember is that commandline settings overwrite configuration file settings.
  13. Mod Manager - The Mod Manager provides one-click installation of many popular mods/modpacks/plugins. For example, if you had a 7 Days to Die server, you'd find all the popular modpacks such as "Darkness Falls" available here. Or if you had a Minecraft server you'd be able to one-click install all the popular modpacks like "All of the Mods". If a mod/modpack/plugin you want is missing from the Mod Manager just let us know in a support ticket and we'll get it added (if feasible).
  14. File Manager - This function allows you to manage the files on your server, you can create, delete, upload, edit, download files at your own discretion.
  15. Log Viewer - This function allows you to view log files for your server, particularly useful when troubleshooting why the server won't work, or administering the server (find out what players are upto) etc.

  17. Steam Workshop - This allows you to browse the Steam Workshop then one-click install Steam Workshop mods to your server (some games require additional installation steps due to the way they are made)
  18. Steam Workshop (Installed) - This allows you to see which Steam Workshop Mods you've already installed to your server. You can then update them, remove them etc.
  19. Steam Workshop (Updates) - This allows you to see which Steam Workshop Mods have an update available, without having to dig through each Steam Workshop mod web page individually - saves a lot of hassle when running a heavily modded server.
  20. Scheduled Tasks - This allows you to automate server actions, such as "Scheduled Server Restarts", "Scheduled Server Updates", "Scheduled Server Messages" etc.
  21. Current Activity and Stats - This allows you to see current server information, such as the player names of players currently connected. It also provides access to graphs which show the player amount, CPU usage and RAM/Memory usage over time. This is very useful as you can use the information to determine whether you need to make any changes to your server specification.
  22. Alternate Mod Downloader - This is the old tool that provided the functionality to download Steam Workshop mods to your server. We advise you do not use it unless we tell you otherwise in a support ticket.
  23. Update your server to a beta version of the game / Beta Update - This allows you to update your server to any experimental, beta or alternative version of the game. For example, if the mods you want to use only support an older version of the game, you'd use this function to install that version. Or, if you wanted to try out new content before it's made widely available, you'd use this function.
  24. Ban IP addresses - Self-explanatory.
  25. Unban IP addresses - Self-explanatory.
