What you are looking for is the "xxxxx.vars.Arma3Profile" file. The only thing you can do is delete it, which will reset everything on your server.


Windows server with full access
  • If you are running the server without the "-profiles" command line option, the file would be at "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Arma 3", or in one of the folders in "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles"
  • If you are running the server with the "-profiles" command line option, the file would be inside one of the "Users" folder in the directory defined by "-profiles".
  • If you are using TADST, look in the "Parameters" textbox from the "Details" tab to see where the "-profiles" option points to.


Linux server with full access
  • If you are running the server without the "-profiles" command line option, the file would be at "/home/<linuxusername>/.local/share/Arma 3", or in one of the folders in "/home/<linuxusername>/.local/share/Arma 3 - Other Profiles". Replace <linuxusername> with the Linux user that you run Steam with.
  • If you are running the server with the "-profiles" command line option, the file would be inside one of the "Users" folder in the directory defined by "-profiles"


FTP access
  • Normally, you should have a "cfg" or "Profile" folder alongside your server files, and inside of this should be a "Users" folder.


Inside of "Users" will be more folders; you must open each one of them to find the "xxxxx.vars.Arma3Profile" with the most recent modified date.

Sorry if this is complicated, but every server is different, so there is no single absolute location for that file. Since I cannot read your mind, all possibilities have to be explained.
