I've used it since v1.7.4. This is the best way to manage AC servers, especially on Linux. The code is actively maintained and supported. It has a tonne of valuable features like saving disk by only installing server-side mod content, a permissions system allowing half-trusted friends to set up races and not break all the config, and great integration with Content Manager, Sol, Discord etc. Very much worth a donation to access Premium too.
Had to leave a second 5 star review, so I could say just how awesome this software and the authors are. An absolutely indispensable tool for anyone managing AC servers, which continues to get better and better.
Absolutely the best server manager for AC, hands down (and I have tried them all in my time as a league admin). Trivial to install, immensely powerful and easy to use, for everything from quick one off races to complete championships with fully configurable race weekends.
The devs are responsive, both here, on GitHub and in their Discord. Bugs are fixed promptly, new features are being constantly added, and they are open to merging code features from contributors (I wrote the Discord integration, which they were very encouraging and helpful with).
Please ignore any 1 star ratings from people who couldn't install or run it. If you can read a short paragraph of instructions, you can run this.
I ask a question that many ask me with this latest version is implemented the control function that all drivers on track have in operation mod SOL ? Or is it something you can’t control? and if the answer is yes, what does it mean for someone who doesn’t use Sol correctly? kik out of the server automatically
AC Server Manager is an incredible well designed tool to easily administrate your AC server thru a modern web interface (and even from your phone). Setup quick races or even championships in no time. Live-view is also slick to follow the race. Plus It has a lot of other great features.
You can really tell, a lot of work have went into designing this tool.
