    Persistent dedicated server step by step walk through?

    Hi folks,

    I'm having a bit of a nightmare trying to setup a server controlled persistent dedicated sever that will display in PC mp session list on windows server 2012. Is there anywhere that has a step by step walk through to achieve this?

    I can connect to the server ok when the server does not control the game settings, tracks etc.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated..

    logLevel : "info"

    // This provides http-based API and basic web-based controls using a built-in http server.

    // Master enable/disable toggle.
    enableHttpApi : true
    // Similar to logLevel above but used only for libwebsockets output.
    // Note that all logging still goes through the main filter, so you won't be able to use more verbose logging here than the main level.
    httpApiLogLevel : "warning"
    // Interface name or IP where to bind the local http server providing the API and web-based controls.
    // This is the textual name of the interface as assigned by your OS, or IP address of the interface.

    // The keys are the conditions for adding the headers, the values are the headers to add.

    httpApiExtraHeaders : {
        "*" : "Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *"
    // Http API access level overrides.
    // Each HTTP API endpoint defines its default access level, usually one of "public", "private" or "admin".
    // This map can override these levels to anything else. The keys are wildcard endpoint paths, and the values are the
    // access levels to use. The first path that matches will be used, processing them in the order as written here.
    // The wildcard patterns are case-sensitive and can contain:
    // - '*': matches 0 or more characters
    // - '%': matches 0 or more characters except for forward slash
    // - '?': matches 1 character
    httpApiAccessLevels : {
        // The default is empty, using defaults as defined by the endpoints themselves.
        // But you could for example use this to change all access levels to public (not recommended!)
        // "*" : "public"
        // Or this to hide the status from public
        // "" : "private"
        // "status" : "private"
        // And similar to hide the help and lists from public
        // "api/help" : "private"
        // "api/list*" : "private"
        // As you can see from the example above, the paths should be written with no initial or trailing slashes.
    // Filtering rules for the access levels.
    // The default access levels are "public", "private" and "admin", but the httpAccessLevels above can define any additional levels.
    // This map then tells the server who has access to which level. It's a map from level names to filtering rules.
    // Filtering rules are then specified as a list of structures, processed in the order as written in the config.
