Editing the PalWorldSettings.ini file

If you don't have access to our Nodepanel, you will need to add your password to the config file, PalWorldSettings.ini.

The location of this file for servers here at Nodecraft is within the "File Manager" tab on the left-hand side, inside the directory of: /Pal/Saved/Config/LinuxServer.

If you’re with a different provider the full location may be /PalServer/Pal/Saved/Config/LinuxServer or /PalServer/Pal/Saved/Config/WindowsServer.

You’ll want to make sure your server is offline before you start to make your edits.

Select the file and press “Edit”. Inside you’ll see all of the settings squashed together. The Server Password setting is near the end. Add your desired password in between the quotation marks.
