Why is this required?
Owning a server sometimes requires administration when it comes to making sure your player base is following the rules. If you are faced with a situation of a player taking advantage of this, you can issue commands in the server console or in-game to use ban or unban commands as followed.
The first step is to go to Scalacube.com and log in to your account.
After this is done, go to "Servers", click on "Manage server".
Click “Manage” again.
The next step is to go to the server console, by clicking on “Console” on the left side of the control panel.
Commands can be sent to the server through this interface.
This is what the server console looks like:
BANNING AND UNBANNING A USERNAME
Entering the command "ban" followed by their username will restrict access of that person to your server.
To unban the user, simply type in "pardon" followed by their username, as this will unban the user allowing them to access your server again.
BANNING AND UNBANNING AN IP
The second option is to type in "ban-ip" followed by their IP address, this will restrict users accessing from that IP address to your server, which is much more effective than simply banning the username just in case the player has multiple accounts.
To unban the IP, simply type in "pardon-ip" as this will allow users to connect from that IP address to join back onto your server.
VIEWING THE LIST OF BANNED PLAYERS OR IP ADDRESSES
Additionally, to view the list of banned players or IP addresses, type in "banlist players" or "banlist ips".
