What does rcon_passsword do?Servers are restarted every 24 hours between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. CST. This is done to optimize game server performance.
If you enter the correct information in your control panel's rcon_password, it will message the server, informing players that a restart will take place.
rcon_password in the control panel must match the rconpassword that you use have set in your server's configuration file (example: server.cfg, basic.cfg, etc.). This allows the control panel to talk to the server.
After your control panel's configuration is changed and saved, you must restart your server (via the control panel) for the changes to take effect.
