Is it a new unit? If so, the safety mechanism may has tripped. If it is a GE built be Rheem, the safety device is a one time device - you have to replace the water heater. Check to maek sure you don't having a venting problem.

SOURCE: Pilot will not relight properly
The thermocouple needs to be replaced. That is what keeps the pilot light lit. The thermocouple is the little metal probe that sticks up into the pilot flame. Very easy to replace.

Your Reliance serial number shows your water heater was made in July 1994.
Except for the Marathon water heaters, and copper-tank water heaters, all tank-type water heaters are made of steel. That steel has an enamel coating which people call a glass liner.
So in that sense, there is a glass liner.
See a photo of the liner:
Also inside the tank is an anode rode.
The anode is made to protect the steel tank.
Anode is made from lower noble metal than steel, so water reacts with the lower noble metal first.
The water eats away the anode rod instead of rusting the tank.
Once the anode rod is gone, the water begins rusting the tank.
The enamel coating does not protect the steel from rusting.
The tank rusts away and begins to leak.

SOURCE: How can i convert a
First thing to do on any gas job is check the fitting line for leaks.
If the piping you are connecting to is "gas tight" then your good to go.
Usually on the compliance plate on the unit there will be a jet sizing chart, find this , it may be on the inside of the cover or on the side at the top.
The jet size for propane is a smaller size orifice than for natural gas,
I use a tiny set of thumb drills to drill the jet to the required size for that burner. (the jets are normally made of brass and are quite easy to drill by hand)
It can be a little bit fiddly actually getting the main burner out of the unit so you can work on the jet. Also very important is that you make sure that you have the exact size drill bit for the jet. Gas appliances can become hazardous if improper jet sizes are fitted!!
This may not be a task for a novice, if in doubt, get a qualified gas fitter to check your work.
