Is this the right place to ask for help with my game server's ini file settings and such?
I'm assuming that by "Ark" in the title, you mean the released game ARK: Survival Evolved / Survival of the Fittest.
If that's correct, then no, this is not the site on which to ask how to configure your ARK server. Questions about playing existing, released games should be asked on our game-playing sister site Arqade.
Be sure to check through their existing catalogue of Q&A about configuring ARK servers to see if your question has already been answered.
GameDev.StackEchange is a site for game developers designing and building their own original games and game mods. So if you have questions about developing and configuring a server for a new game that you're creating, then that would most likely be on-topic here.
