automatically including current (update) date in server name?

#1
I want to run an automatically updated xonotic git server in Ubuntu Server 10.04. Having it update and compile should be easy enough in a startup script, ie:

Code:
./all update
./all compile
./all run dedicated

Two things I don't know how to do however:
1. Automatically update the server.cfg with the current date when the script is run (so it says something like "Xonotic git - updated <todays_date>".
2. Automatically reboot the server or kill/update/restart the git server at a specified time of day.

If anyone could help me with this it'd be much appreciated Smile

1. Not tested, but something like this should work
Code:
echo "set builddate \"`date`\"" > ~/.xonotic/data/builddate.cfg
In config:
Code:
exec builddate.cfg
hostname "Awesome server (Updated at $builddate)"

2. You might use RCON (with rcon_secure 0):
Code:
rconpw=hackme
srvaddr=nexuiz.example.com
srvport=26000
printf "\377\377\377\377rcon %s quit" $rconpw | netcat -uc $srvaddr $srvport

Example #1 did what I wanted, thanks for the help! Now I've got my git server is all set up Smile
