How to make yourself an admin on your Rust Server

First, you will need to install an Rcon program on your PC, we recommend that you use RustAdmin: 
To log into your RustAdmin, you will need to do the following:
Step 1: Click the 'Commandline Manager' button in the control panel.
Step 2: Click 'New'
Step 3: Enter your passwords as desired.
Step 4: Enable the WebRcon Option
Step 5: Save the Commandline.
Step 6: Click 'Select' on the right-hand side of the page to activate your Commandline.
Step 7: Configure Rust Admin to access your server's rcon.

Open Rust Admin
-Click the Configuration tab
-Select the WebRcon option under RCON Type
In the Server window
-Put your server's IP in the IP section (do not include the port)
-Put the server port in the server port section
-Put the RCON port in the RCON Port section (You can view the rcon port when you preview your custom command line)
-Put the admin password you set up in your custom command line in the password section
Save the settings

To connect, Click the server tab in the top left corner, then click connect.

Once you've logged into Rust Admin run these commands:

ownerid STEAM64ID "playername"

You must use a Steam64ID (looks like 76894329123023 ) you can obtain your own using this website:

If you add yourself to admin while on the server, you must relog onto the server to access admin.
