Garry's mod server not using server.cfg file - Help?
I am attempting to learn how to setup game mods along with other addons to a garry's mod server, so that when a friend rents a server I can set it up for him,

so I am attempting to set up a server on my current computer and get use to adding things to it, right now I have it running on my system but, for some reason it does not use the server.cfg file in the cfg folder, when I start up srcds, the name and setting for the garry's mod server are what ever I last put in and not what's on the server.cfg file so I can't use the .cfg file to set the gamemode

I've tried saving the server.cfg file with more then one program with no luck
I've looked around my system to see if I some how installed a Gmod server in another folder, I've looked in all the folders I could think of for a server.cfg file and could not find one.

So I don't know what I've done wrong . . .

So could any one help me out?

I am trying to setup a simple surf mod server

It should be as simple as Right click, new > Text Document > Right click paste a server.cfg file found on these forums > tweak setting > Save and then load up server right?
