Rent your own 7 Days to Die server now at 4Netplayers.com

Note: You will need your SteamID64 to become an admin.
You can get one here: https://steamid.io

Important: the server must be completely stopped before making changes.
The status of the server must be Server not running!
Otherwise the server will overwrite your changes!

Basic Mode

Click on Admin Settings and enter your SteamID64 in one of the available fields.
Then click on Save and start the server.

Advanced Mode

In Advanced Mode you need to add your SteamID64 in serveradmin.xml.
Find the following section:

    <admins>
        <!-- <user steamID="76561198021925107" name="Hint on who this user is" permission_level="0" ></user> -->
        <!-- <group steamID="103582791434672565" name="Steam Universe" permission_level_default="1000" permission_level_mod="0" ></group> -->
<user name="User1" steamID="1" permission_level="0" ></user>
<user name="User2" steamID="2" permission_level="0" ></user>
<user name="User3" steamID="3" permission_level="0" ></user>
<user name="User4" steamID="4" permission_level="0" ></user>
<user name="User5" steamID="5" permission_level="0" ></user>
    </admins>

Admins are added in this line: <user name="User1" steamID="1" permission_level="0" ></user>

  • name="User1" : Name can be chosen freely and is used to identify the entry.
    Replace UserX with the name of the player or leave it unchanged
  • steamID="1" : Replace the number here with your SteamID64
  • permission_level="0" : Defines what commands the player can use.
    A player with level 0 can use all commands of level 0 or higher.
    A player with level 300 can only use commands of level 300 or higher.
    Replace 0 with the level the user should have

Your entry should look similar to this:

    <admins>
        <!-- <user steamID="76561198021925107" name="Hint on who this user is" permission_level="0" ></user> -->
        <!-- <group steamID="103582791434672565" name="Steam Universe" permission_level_default="1000" permission_level_mod="0" ></group> -->
<user name="Padre" steamID="76561197979226165" permission_level="0" ></user>
<user name="Badmin" steamID="76561197979226167" permission_level="1000" ></user>
    </admins>

When you have made your changes, click Save and start the server.
