How to setup Push Commands

Please note: enabling push commands on your server may impact performance and because of this, is not recommended - however, the option to enable push commands will remain available for those who wish to use it. Typical item delivery times are between 1~3 minutes without push commands which is still very fast and suitable for nearly all circumstances.

Push Commands allows for instant command execution on your ARK: Survival Evolved server.

  1. After installing the latest plugin, restart your server to allow the plugin to add the additional config options to your config.json file

  2. Edit the config.json file and set enablePushCommands to true.

  3. Edit the config.json and set portPushCommands to an unused port number, 1234 for example. This port must be open in your firewall, and able to accept inbound TCP (HTTP) connections.

  4. Save the configuration file and restart start your game server. In your console you should see a line such as "Starting Tebex Push Command Server.... Starting server on". If not, please contact the Tebex support team.

  5. Head to the Tebex Store control panel and click Edit on the server from the servers page.

  6. In the fields shown below, enter your game server's IP address and the port you provided in config.json.

  7. Click the Connect button, then press the Update button. If your server fails to connect please see the troubleshooting steps below.

If Tebex Store is unable to connect to your game server, please check the following.

  • In config.json, enablePushCommands is set to true.

  • In config.json, portPushCommands should be set to a free, open port.

  • There are no errors or warnings showing in the game server's console.

  • The IP address and port that you have entered in the Tebex Store control panel is valid.

  • You don't have any firewall rules blocking direct access to the server. If this is the case, please whitelist our outbound IP addresses, these can be found on the server edit page.
