Configure the game

Secure your Backups folder

This is the most important part of the configuration. If you skip this step you will leave your server vulnerable to exploits.

  • Go to Settings > Games > Select the game > File System Permissions.
  • Expand User Files and select Add permissions by subdirectory.
  • Configure these values:
    • Subdirectory Path: Backups
    • Permissions:
      • If you don't want to allow manual download of the backup files set it to "no permissions".
      • If you want to allow the user to download and delete backups set it to "Basic permissions" and check "Read" and "Delete". DO NOT check "write".
    • Click on Add.
    • Add the same permission for "Sub Admin Files" and "Reseller Files".
    • Click on Save.

Create the variable

  • Configure a variable used by the restore script. Go to Settings > Games > Select the game > Variables (it can also be a global variable). Create this variable:
    • Name: BackupFile
    • Script parameter: Checked
    • Admin access: Checked
    • Sub admin access: Checked
    • Reseller access: Checked
    • User access: Checked
    • Server owner access: Checked
    • Value is required: Checked
    • Required Message: The backup file is required.
    • Item Type: Combobox
    • Label: Backup:
    • Description: Select the backup to restore.
    • Source: File System
    • Filter Type: Files
    • Filter: Backups/*.zip
    • Item Value: Full path
    • Item Display: Name (no extension)

Create the scripts

  • Go back to the game's main settings. Click on the Custom Scripts icon. Add the following scripts. They can also be configured as global scripts.
Operating System: Any
Name: Backup Your Settings
Description: Create a backup of your game server's settings.
Script Engine: IronPython
Event: Custom Icon
Sub admin access: Checked
Reseller access: Checked
User access: Checked
Server owner access: Checked
Stop service before executing: Check if you want to stop the game server before creating the backup.
Script: Configure BACKUP_LOCATION, MAX_BACKUPS, BACKUP_EXTENSIONS, FOLDER_TO_BACKUP as needed. If you change the backup location remember to update your file system permissions.
