To change the difficulty or other settings for your Forest server, you will need to access the configuration file via FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to do so. To edit/upload/save/delete files via FTP, use the following method:
- Stop your server from the panel.
- Log in to FTP using WinSCP (a free FTP software) using the connection details found in the "FTP Details" section of the game server control panel. Download link for WinSCP here: http://winscp.net/eng/download.php
- Navigate to the directory you wish to upload or edit a file.
You want to edit the Server.cfg file.
- Open up the file using a text editor like Notepad or Notepad++.
If you are not familiar with configuration files, any line starting with two slashes is ignored by the program.
