Thread: Server Admins - Ingame Admin Tool

  1. #81
    I think the issue is with how I edit the file to adit the admin names. I edit the privlages file in note pad and then save as a .xml file. but when i open the file it is blank. Is there another way to edit the file?

    Mr. Bob, Jr.

    Please be a bit more conservative in your posting of multiple thoughts.

    There is an edit button on the bottom of each post, clicking on that will allow you to merge multiple posts into one.

    Thanks.

    You must be saving the file incorrectly or your Notepad permissions aren't configured correctly on your OS or you are trying to save to a folder which you don't have access to. Try using a freeware program like TextPad perhaps.

    I've tried this and the uploaded file still shows blank when I view/edit.

    This is super frustrating and I would seriousally be willing to pay someone to set it up for me at this point. That or limit/shut down the server since I can't administrate it.

    That should only be done as a last resort... Only when you are overrun and have one bullet left.

    You shouldn't give random strangers your FTP information unless absolutely necessary.

    Hmmm. Are you running any anti-virus or anti-malware software when you upload the files via FTP?

    Some anti-virus / anti-malware programs will nullify all FTP uploads by your computer and, consequently, files which you upload will be blank. This prevents hackers from uploading sensitive data from your computer to an external server without your permission.

    Disable and close all anti-virus and anti-malware programs
    such as Avast, McAfee, Norton, K9 Web Protection, Windows Defender, Spybot, etc. Turn them all off. Also, be sure to turn off "Real Time Safe Browsing" or "Real Time Protection" as well.

    **EDIT: Turn-off / disable your firewall too.

    Then try uploading your privileges.xml file via the FTP program again.

    Double-check that the remote directory to which you are uploading is the /Assets/ sub-directory and not the root directory or another unauthorized directory. Make sure you are using the correct port number as well.


    If the file is still blank after upload, a few questions:

    1. Do you see any error messages in the FTP client?
    2. What does the FTP client say after you upload?
    3. Have you tried using a different FTP client?
    4. Are you uploading in ASCII mode or Binary mode?



    Also, paste the contents of your privileges.xml in your reply.

    Thank you for taking the time to supply all of the advice O'Rourke.It helped us to get to the point were all that was left to fix were some minor coding errors. We have it working now and hopefully, the posts will help the others who come after me also.

    I do not see this file after banning someone in our server.

    Would just typing admin.command banuser Steam ID work for a permanent ban while logged into our server? Tried this but still do not see a file in the Assets folder.

    Also, how do you find someone's SteamID? Do you just look up their in-game player name?

    Hello. We changed the name of the file some time ago to just banlist.json instead of the servername .json. This was because each time server owners renamed their server, the server would then no longer be able to find the file which was called the previous name of the server.

    The reason why we originally called the file thenameoftheserver.json was because if multiple servers were running from the same game directory, then each server could store its own individual ban information, it is nowadays though extremely rare that we run multiple servers from the same directory and we then decided renaming the file to banlist.json would be an easy solution to allow for bans to persist when servers are renamed.

    I just updated the OP as well.

    You can search for players here: https://steamcommunity.com/search/users/ and then the SteamID will be the last 17 numbers in the URL in the top of your browser.
