How to Add an Admin to Your Rust Server

Granting a player Admin access on your Rust server allows the player to execute all Rust admin commands in-game. This can be used to ban, mute, kick players, and more.

You can find a full list of commands on the Rust Wiki.

THE AVAILABLE ADMIN ROLES FOR RUST

  • ownerid - This grants access to all admin commands, and can add/remove other admins.
  • moderatorid - This grants access to all admin commands, but cannot add/remove other admins.

SETTING A PLAYER AS AN ADMIN OR MODERATOR USING CONSOLE COMMANDS

Before we begin, you will first need to find the 64bit Steam ID of the user you wish to give a role.

  1. Navigate to the console in your server’s control panel.
  2. On the textbox of your console, type <role> <64_bit_steam_id> <reason/user> Replace <role> with ownerid or moderatorid depending on which rank you would like to give the player, <64_bit_steam_id> with the 64bit Steam ID of the player you wish to set as an admin, and replace <reason/user> with a reason or their username.
  3. Press Enter or click the SEND button. You will receive a confirmation message in your console indicating that the player has been given the chosen role.
  4. Once the user has been given the role you will need to save the configuration file by executing the writecfg command.
  5. Press Enter or click the SEND button. You will receive a confirmation message in your console indicating that it has been saved.
