FTP access for DayZ Console servers

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:
Community Discord: https://discord.gg/nitrado

    Are there any plans for allowing FTP access for Console DayZ servers?

    This would to be enable the down/uploading of 'specific/pre-defined' server states for PvP events and things, while being able to retain a seperate backup of the current state of the ongoing day to day server.

    I fully appreciate consoles may not have FTP access, but unsuprisingly quite a lot of console owners own a PC/Laptop too.

    ^Responding to response from previous support ticket ^ ;)

    Or even if the server owner doesn't, they will hopefully have someone they would be able to entrust with admin rights to do so.

    ^A position of trust I myself am in :)^


    There are somethings that I fully appreciate are just not within your control (loot tables/log files for instance), but hopefully seeing as all the data used/needed has already been generated and hosted with you, it should hopefully not be to difficult to implement.

    A nice little touch to go with it (or even standalone) would be the ability to backup the server on demand rather than have to wait for the automated daily one.

    Just when you thought it was safe to stay OUT of the water!
