SteamCMD using the wrong password

Recommended Posts


Recently changed the password for our steam account and updated the login details under System > Settings > Default Steam Settings.

Later came to realise one of our servers wasnt updating because the old login had been set in the game config, so i removed it, left it blank & hit "Update Existing Services".

Problem is out of the 3 services using that config only one started using the correct password, one is still using the old password and the other is using a random password i have never seen.

I also tested a different game which never had the password set in the config and its working fine.

Nevermind, i forgot that there was a steam settings tab in the service settings for each service.

Apparently the old login had also been set in there at some point and clearing it has fixed the issue.

Still not sure where the random password that one of the services was using came from though...
