You can set up schedules to restart your server, send commands, or do game-specific tasks such as wiping Rust servers.

Game Host Bros Schedules

  1. Load the Game Host Bros Panel.
  2. Select your server.
  3. In the left-hand menu, click Configuration > Schedules.
  4. Click the Create button.
  5. Give your schedule a name, in this example we will use “Restart” as the name.
  6. Put in the time you want the server to perform the action in cron format. For example, to run the Restart at 10 UTC, I would put in 0 10 * * *.
  7. It will now say AT 10:00, Next run at November 29, 2023 @ 6:00 PM. That means at 6:00PM your time the schedule will run.
  8. Click Submit and then Create Task on the top right and select the type of Task you want to perform. Example: we use power action, and restart.

If you have multiple tasks you want to run, for example you want to run a save command then then restart the server, you can use the Time Offset function. This is measued in seconds and its the delay from when your last task was run.

Here is a video we’ve made for schedules. While the Game Panel looks slightly different, the functionality is the same.

Here is a list of popular times in cron format.
