Configuring server with the AC server manager graphical interface

Assetto Corsa comes with a tool which has a graphical user interface to create server configurations. This tool can make it easier to configure your game server because you wont have typo's by manually editing the server configuration and because it doesn't allow you to set invalid configuration variables.

Before we use this tool we need to take note of the port configuration of your game server, so that you use the unique ports that have been assigned to your server. 
It's important to do this, because using different ports than the ones which have been assigned for your server will result in errors, such as the server not starting or using ports that are already in use by a different server.

To find the ports assigned to your server we need to open the server_cfg.ini file on your game server.
Then look for the following ports and take note:
UDP_PORT
TCP_PORT
HTTP_PORT

If values other than 0 are set for:
UDP_PLUGIN_LOCAL_PORT
UDP_PLUGIN_ADDRESS


THIS NEXT PART - USE ACSERVERMANAGE FROM YOU GAME CLIENT FOLDERS/FILES:
Use the servermanager to set entry list and tracks (DO NOT USE IT FOR SERVER SETUP)

We can now proceed to use the AC server manager, which is located in your Assetto Corsa installation folder - [goto server folder and click acservermanager.exe].
The assetto corsa folder will now open, in this folder is a folder called server, in there we can find an application named: acServerManager. Start this application.


Once manager screens is open goto Cars/Entry List and start selecting cars you want. Do the same for tracks.
Save when ready.
To export the entry_list cfg files use the export button and save them somewhere suitable (a place you can remember and which can suite as a permanent backup). Then upload them to your server inside the cfg folder, when asked to overwrite the existing files choose yes. To apply the changes restart the server and look for any error messages in the web console.

Note for custom content:
If you are using custom content which is installed in your Assetto Corsa installation you can click the Update Server content button, after a restart of the server manager application the new tracks and vehicles will show up and can be configured.
When using custom content please use the create manager package option found under the advanced tab, choose a suitable location to save it. You should then upload the folders inside the exported acPackage folder to your server.
