Server Mod Startup Parameters, Which Way Is Proper?

Question

I've seen a few different answers to this but can I get something definitive? In my startup.bat I have my mod startup parameters as:

-mod=@Exile;@ExileServer;Kart;Mark;Heli

But I'v seen some that have it with quotation marks like: 

-mod="@Exile;@ExileServer;Kart;Mark;Heli"

As it is, my server starts and plays fine, but which is the actual way I should have it? 

 

Thanks!

Actually it's -mod=@Exile -serverMod=@ExileServer

No quotes and no "Kart;Mark;Heli". Those are automatically loaded without being included in the command line.

not 100% right answere 
see sportrep00058 on dev hub 

Updated: Stand-alone Windows Dedicated Server (1.62)
Updated: Stand-alone Linux Dedicated Server (1.62)
Known issue: Steam client modifies the steam_appid.txt file incorrectly. In case of issues, verify its content is: 107410
Known issue: Sometimes the add-ons are loaded from the wrong installation (e.g. main game)
Try adding -mod=curator;kart;heli;mark;expansion;dlcbundle to your arma3server.exe shortcut

and the Quotes u can need too when used a path with SPACE in the mod command like 

Complex example

-mod=@Exile
-mod="mods test\@Exile"
-mod="c:ArmA 3\mods test\@Exile"

"@Exile"  (relative path)
is located in the arma3 installation folder 
("c:ArmA 3\@Exile")

"mods test\@Exile"  (relative path; subfolder)
is in the installation folder 
("c:ArmA 3\mods test\@Exile")

"c:\ArmA 3\mods test\@Exile" (absolute path)
is in 
"c:ArmA 3\mods test\@Exile"

but on standart ur right

Spoiler

-mod=@Exile -serverMod=@ExileServer

and all will work

you only need to use quotes if you have addons with spaces in the folder names
