How do I add admins?

Post by 0nopeO »

This article covers how to add admins for your 7 Days to Die server (A20.4+)
  1. First you will need your Steam64ID, or EOSID (depending on your platform).
    1. For Steam users, you can use this site to find your SteamID64: https://steamid.io/lookup
    2. For Epic Online Services users, you can follow this tutorial to obtain your EOS ID: viewtopic.php?t=16345
  2. Verify that your 7 Days to Die server is offline.
  3. Connect to your server's FTP using the credentials listed on the "File Manager" tab in your control panel.
    1. If you aren't sure how to connect, we have a guide for FileZilla posted here: viewtopic.php?t=8044
  4. Navigate to "/saves/"
  5. Download "serveradmin.xml" and save it to your computer. I highly recommend keeping two copies, one that you will edit, and one to save locally, in case you need to revert the most recent changes.
  6. Open "serveradmin.xml" in your preferred text editor, and look for the following text.

    Code: Select all

    <admins>
        <!-- <user steamID="76561198021925107" name="Hint on who this user is" permission_level="0" /> -->
        <!-- <group steamID="103582791434672565" name="Steam Universe" permission_level_default="1000" permission_level_mod="0" /> -->
    </admins>
    
  7. Add the user code between the <admins> and </admin> tags, with the correct platform, userid, and permission level.
    1. For Steam users, use this format.

      Code: Select all

      <user platform="Steam" userid="SteamID64Here" permission_level="1000" />
    2. For Epic Online users, use this format.

      Code: Select all

      <user platform="EOS" userid="EpicOnlineServicesIDHere" permission_level="1000" />
  8. It should look similar to the below example, I've only added one entry here, but you can add as many admin entries as you would like.

    Code: Select all

    <admins>
        <!-- <user steamID="76561198021925107" name="Hint on who this user is" permission_level="0" /> -->
        <!-- <group steamID="103582791434672565" name="Steam Universe" permission_level_default="1000" permission_level_mod="0" /> -->
        <user platform="Steam" userid="SteamID64Here" permission_level="1000" />
    </admins>
    
  9. Save the file, and upload the updated copy.
  10. Start your server.
  11. You should now have access to all of the specified commands.
