i just noticed on my server that the banned_user.cfg file seems to empty itself of all entries , can someone confirm this ?
Where do all the bans go ?

Yes. I have this exact same problem. The ban list is ok unless I restart the server, and then it disappears.

I have the same issue, Beetlefart told me to do a writeid and then do an exec banned_user.cfg in my server.cfg but whenever my server restarts the entries are gone. I am trying changing the .cfg to read only just to keep the banned list in there until i figure out a solution.

Some guy in the linux mailing list suggest to me to not put writeip and writeid in the server.cfg, and it seems to work. Heres what mine looks like after commenting out those 2 lines:

// load ban files
exec banned_ip.cfg
// writeip
exec banned_user.cfg
// writeid

Works for me now. I can restart the servers and all is ok.

if you wanan perma ban some one easyst way is to add the ban command to your autoexec.bat file every map change it should ban them even if the server restarts

Never tried it, but somehow I dont think executing 800+ banid commands on map change would work very well for us.
