Server Admin

Becoming Admin (SuperAdmin)

  1. When you server first start you will need to connect to the WebConsole so set yourself as superadmin
  2. In the webconsole you'll see a message that says "To become superadmin, join the game and type /auth [authcode]."
    Take note of the code displayed in your server console.
  3. Launch your game and join your server. Then in-game open the console { ~ key } window, and type in /auth code, where code is your [authcode] from the step above
  4. Then enter /user add [username] [password] superadmin. Replace username and password with your desired username and password, without brackets.
  5. Login using /login [username] [password]. If you login successfully, great! If not, repeat the above step again or post on the forums to get more help.
  6. Type /auth to finish setup.
