If you want to change your servers password, with GameServerKings I'ts never been easier. Just follow this guide and you'll understand how to do just that in no time. 

First, you'll need to login to your GameServerKings Game Server Control Panel. Use your TCAdmin login information sent to you in the verification email you received after your purchase. Select "Game Services" on the left-hand side of the screen in the navbar listed under "Game & Voice Management." From there, STOP your server and then click "File Manager".

From there, make your way to /tf/cfg. This is the folder where your config file lives. All you need to do is scroll down and look for "server.cfg." Once you find it, go ahead and edit it by clicking the pencil next to the file name.

Once you're in, all you'll have to do is change the "password" value to whatever you want it to be, and then save the file. Once the file is saved make your way back to "Game Services" and reboot your server. You have successfully changed your server's password!
