Configuration adapts server to individual needs of the owner and players. A person with access to server files can change almost all parameters, such as maximum number of players, password and many others.

If you want to configure your Holdfast: Nations at War server follow this guide:

1. Stop your server

Login to the server panel with your credentials. On the server list search for your Holdfast: Nations at War server and click on it – you should be redirected to the “Console” tab. Here you can click on the “Stop” button to stop your server.

2. Start basic configuration

Once you are in a server panel, change tab to the “Startup”. This tab contains the most important parameters of your server – you can change them without editing the configuration file. The table below shows all variables you can change in “Startup” tab.
