So I have spent the most of the day setting up the ARK server on AMP but I have run into some issues to do with the server stopping and restarting.

If I tell the server to stop within the status tab in the server webpage it will never actually shut down and just sit there using my ram until I hit the kill button (but doing that will prevent the server from saving before it shut down) And if I hit restart the server will shutdown instantly (does not save) and doesn't even restart again.

Would anyone know what is going on?

There's a bug in the ARK server itself that makes it not respond to a shutdown request via RCON. We're looking at alternatives but the ARK server is pretty badly built.
