New Server, and I need help.

Hey guys, I recently bought a 14 slot server, its not the first FPS server I have had, but it is the first Source server I've had. I'd really appreciate help with ALL server commands, how to mess properly with the .cfg files, and HOW TO TAKE A PW OFF the server. Also, loading maps onto the list would be beneficial as well. I want to have a FUN public server, so if you guys have any suggestions please tell me!

US or EU server?

There's quite a lot of commands you can use to put up a server. To take of your servers password you only will need to put sv_password to blank. Like this:
Code:
sv_password ""

Maps are noted in a different file then server.cfg. By default all the maps that run on the server are noted in maplist.txt.

Also, its a rented server through a server provider, any clue on how to load maps to the server through FTP ( i know its shitty but its the only way they offer communication with the server other than in-game.)

Here's the config I'm using:
http://rawh.ampaste.net/f89de4af

Comments are next to the '//' escape characters.

You can put the entire line of text you see there in the server.cfg file and edit them to your hearts content. If you have any questions about the commands you see, don't be afraid to ask them here

You can check out the config above and search for the line "sv_downloadurl". It will point all the 'new' guys who don't have the map yet towards a different server to download it from, providing the maps are the same.

Maps can easilly be uploaded via ftp. Our uni server has a lot of custom maps you can find in : http://ftp.snt.utwente.nl/pub/games/...r/fastdl/maps/
Next to that you can also get maps from : http://ffpickup.com/?p=files

ffpickup.com has mappacks and just loose maps

When i used to run a CoD2 server, I had a 3rd party rcon program that i used to manage my server(i.e. kick,ban, change maps, restart map, switch maps, all at the click of a button) are there any programs like that out there for source or specifically FF?

Yes, sourcemod is what you should need and what most servers use:

http://www.sourcemod.net/

Follow all instructions. I think you may need to install Metamod Source first, then that, and you can download lots of plugins that should work with FF that help manage your server.

You might ask some other server owners like Zip or Scuzzy or Partial Schism about what plugins work with FF.

if it's a public server, it shouldn't have a password.

SourceMod is a third party in game admin mod. HLSW is your third party Rcon/console tool. Now HLSW does have a plugin if it isn't in the regular install that you can Use sm commands from a dropdown menu.

I'm working 12 hrs a day right now but would be glad to offer what ever help I can.

Compression Utility Program

In order to conserve hard drive space, extract compressed files (of various formats) and to create .bz2 files if you utilize the fast download feature for your web site you need to have a compression utility program.

Link is broken.

those are my absolutely top 2 favorite maps for pubs, the problem is that they aren't being played properly and are therefor viewed as crappy. Run a 16 man server with those 2 maps for a bit and then see how you feel.

Edit: also I know your probably just giving mono shit, but still...
