Main documentation

Introduction

New from 1.5.3, Authorized Serial Account Protection provides a way to prevent password reuse causing damage to your server.

How to enable

Open mtaserver.conf and find <auth_serial_groups> and change to below. (If <auth_serial_groups> does not exist, then add it)

<auth_serial_groups>Admin</auth_serial_groups>

If you wish to protect other ACL groups, then add them separated by commas, e.g.:

<auth_serial_groups>Admin,SuperModerator</auth_serial_groups>

How to disable

Open mtaserver.conf and find <auth_serial_groups> and change to below

<auth_serial_groups></auth_serial_enabled>

Note: Authorized Serial Account Protection helps prevent your server from getting hacked. If there is a chance any of your admins are using the same password on other servers, then do not disable this feature.

How to use

To allow the last attempted serial for an account, enter the following command in the server console:

authserial <account_name>

To view authorized serials for an account:

authserial <account_name> list

To remove the newest authorized serial for an account:

authserial <account_name> remove
