More detailed features:
- Optionally execute external files for six unique conditions, including at updates, scheduled restarts, remote restart, when first restart notice is announced
  *These options are great executing a batch file to disable certain mods during a server update, to run custom announcement scripts, make config changes (enable PVP at scheduled times), etc.
- Automatically imports server settings from serverconfig.xml (or comparable file) and creates a temporary file... leaving the original file untouched.

-----------------
 TIPS & COMMENTS
-----------------
Comments:
- It is suggested that you RENAME or COPY the default dedicated.yaml file as it may be overwritten with server updates.
- Telnet password can only contain letters and numbers.
- There are a lot of parameters that can be set in the EmpyrionServerUpdateUtility.ini. All parameters can be left at the default value, except...
    I recommend changing the default dedicated.yaml filename so that it does not get overwritten with each server update or file validation.
- If running multiple instances of this utility, each copy must be in a separate folder.
- If running multiple instances of this utility, rename EmpyrionServerUpdateUtility.exe to a unique name for each server. The phoenix icon in the lower right will display the filename.
  For example: I run 6 servers, so I renamed the EmpyrionServerUpdateUtility.exe files to Empy-STABLE.EXE, Empy-EXP.EXE, CONAN-2X.EXE, CONAN-PIPPI.EXE, CONAN-LITMAN.EXE, & ATLAS.EXE.
- If using the "Request Restart From Browser" option, you have to use your local PC's IP address as the server's IP. ex: "Server Local IP=192.168.1.10" (127.0.0.1 and external IP do not work).
Tips:
- Use the "Run external script during server updates" feature to run a batch file that disables certain mods during a server update to prevent incompatibilities.

 DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS
-----------------------
====> Request Restart From Browser <====
- If enabled on the server, use to remotely restart the server.
- When restarting, an announcement will be made in-game, on Discord, and in Twitch if enabled, with the set duration of delay (warning).
- Set Password in INI file to save, or type each time.
- Restart using IP or Domain Name
- Restart commands are now expecting HTTP headers, and can be sent to the server from a web browser using the format http://IP:PORT?restart=user_pass. The utility will respond if the password is accepted or not. There is also a limit for max password attempts. After 15 tries in 10 minutes the requesting IP will be locked out for 10 minutes.
- 404 Responses will be sent if the RestartKey does not match or the header is incorrect. You can enable Debugging for a full output to the log what is being received by the server if you have any trouble.
- These Are the Allowed Characters in the RestartCode (Password) 1234567890abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ!@$%^&*()+=-{}[]\|:;./?

Usage Example:
INI SETTINGS
[Game Server IP]
ListenIP=192.168.0.1
[Use Remote Restart ?yes/no]
UseRemoteRestart=yes
[Remote Restart Request Key http://IP:Port?RestartKey=RestartCode (Ex: 192.168.1.30:57520?restart=password)]
ListenPort=57520
RestartKey=restart
RestartCode=password

- You can have multiple passwords. For example: RestartCode=password1,pass2,pwd3
In a standard web browser, type in the URL http://192.168.1.30:57520?restart=password. The Server would compare the pass and find that it is correct. It would respond with 200 OK And HTML Code stating the server is restarting.
