Adding yourself as owner/admin

There are a few ways to add yourself as an owner/admin of your rust server, but we will go through the simplest option.

  1. Turn the server offline
  2. Once the server is offline, navigate to the following location in your control panel: File Manager > server > my_server_identity > cfg > server.cfg
  3. Open 'Server.cfg" and add the following; ownerid "64_bit_steam_id" "optional_user_name" "optional_reason" and then save and exit.
  4. When done correctly, it should look like this; ownerid "76561197964108741" "example" "example"
  5. Start your server up and you will now be an admin
