Installing Cat on a Hosted Server?

    Hey all,

    Just was wondering if someone could give me a quick walkthrough on how to install this on a pre-hosted server. I'm excited to try and utilize this especially for when I have to do offline Admining. Thank you in advance, and I hope you continue to support this amazing backend support program!

    Unfortunately you can't use it on a hosted server, it has to be run locally to your CE server. This is due to that the CE devs did not create any way into the server remotely. So everything CAT can do, is from accessing the local database and files. Once the CE Devs create a proper way to connect to the server and perform commands, CAT will support it. =) But until then, there is just no way to get to the information remotely.

    Would you be up for a challenge? I just want a simple file parser that I can plug the files through to extract actual in-game player names in an attempt to help combat exploiters and trolls. Would be much easier than slogging through log files. :)

    Sounds pretty simple, please give me the specifics and I'll see what I can do.

    Right now it sounds like "go through all of the log files in a folder and display all of the player names found as a result."?

    However, that being said, it'd probably be much easier to get that list by simply looking at the database. I'm at work at the moment (so I can't remember the name), but its just one file and contains all of the player/game information. If you have access to that file, it'd be much easier (and many more possibilities open up).

    Let me know either way.

    Yeah that was essentially what I was looking for. Pop a log file in for a day, see the player names (and their in game alias), but if there is a file I'm overlooking... *facepalm* that I can see every player that has connected since the server start. That'd be great too.

    The database file is: \ConanSandbox\Saved\game.db

    For the current database (the others are backups). You can open it with any SQLite DB editor. Let me know if that is good enough for what you want, or if you need something custom written. =)

    I'm not sure how long it would take you, could you make something that exports the database to an excel spreadsheet?

    That would be something that I would need to add to the feature requests for CAT as it would require a bit of time and would be better served as an option all could use instead of just your use case. =)

    Well Thank you for your time. I was able to relearn mysql and how to work with databases, so I'm solid. :) Just was a bit rusty.
