2 Questions involving restart

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:

  • Hello,

    Any help with these 2 questions would be greatly appreciated!

    Question 1:

    Since I purchased a new server a few weeks ago it automatically restarts every morning just before 2:30am est. I never set it to do this although I would like it to restart just not at this time. It also doesn't show in the settings for the server on the web interface.

    Question 2:

    When doing a manual restart there is this message:

    "Before the server starts, please set the following settings to the correct value, to ensure the server can boot up properly."

    What value do I put in so it will give people time to get to a safe place??? Say 5 or 10 minutes? When I had a server a few years ago this was a separate setting.

    Thank you in advance!

    - Angela

  • Question 1:

    Go to your Nitrado dashboard

    Select Automated tasks under "Tools"

    There you will see a list of current auto tasks.

    By default there is one auto task set. I don't think you can edit this but you can delete it and create a new one of your own, to restart your serve at a more convenient time for you.

    Question 2:

    There is a drop down list of amount of seconds before your server shuts down/restarts. I have selected 300 (which is there apparent maximum allowed), which gives my players 5 minutes to get themselves ready for the restart.
