[RESOLVED] Steam Vaildation Rejected

I'm using Valve's Source Dedicated Server to host a Counter Strike: Source Server and I can't even join my own game. My ports are forwarded correctly and the server GUI pops up with no errors. I've done this many times in the past and it has worked perfectly with very little lag and a bunch of plugins and addons. Also my router is a D-Link DIR 655 2.00 NA. I keep getting "Steam Validation Rejected". I've fixed it before and forgot how I did it. Also I've already tried the steam_app.txt solution and that isn't working for me at all.

EDIT: Instead of "steam_appid.txt" I put "steam_app.txt". Big mistake on my part. Four years of running a server and I've never made that mistake.
