How can I use my own dedicated server?

Hello. I am making a multiplayer mobile game with using photon bolt and playfab.I would like to use my own server instead of playfab server. How can I do that? I have been searching this for days but I couldn't find anything useful. Links like https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/gaming/playfab/features/multiplayer/servers/custom-game-servers are broken. I know there is settings for external servers but what to do next after activating "Use external game server provider" settings.

For clarification, we don’t provide this feature to users that haven’t used the “externally hosted game servers” before. Its documentation is deprecated and no longer makes sense to inexperienced users of this feature. Currently, with the new Multiplayer Servers - PlayFab | Microsoft Docs, we don’t provide the service to handle the external servers. To use your own dedicated server, there is nothing need to be configured with PlayFab, you should connect to your server with the Ip address and Port directly.

for me I am using UE4 my answer is for this engine

you should look for two things

something called dedicated-server this will run on your server(machune) as UE4 server

this will host a session that you create and users are going to join this session via IP address of your server

with the command open IP:port:team
