If you're an experienced user, I'll save you the hassle of showing you how to find this file. The path for the file is /tf/cfg/server.cfg. As for everyone else, this guide will show you how to get to your server config file for TF2 using the GameServerKings TCAdmin Toolset.


Management Panel

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".

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, if you need to edit it, go ahead and edit it by clicking the pencil next to the file name.
