How to make yourself an admin on your Rust Server

The following guide will explain how to get yourself set up as an in-game admin on your Rust server.
 
Open your game panel located here
 
Step 1: Click the 'Commandline Manager' button in the control panel.
Step 2: Click 'New'
Step 3: Enter your password 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.
 
Once set up, from within your panel open your web console and input the Rcon password that you created.
Once entered, use the following commands, adding your own information to the STEAM64ID section
 
ownerid STEAM64ID "playername"
 
server.writecfg
 
The above command would look similar to this:
 
ownerid 76894329123023 "User"

You must use a Steam64ID (looks like 76894329123023 ) you can obtain your own using this website:
https://steamid.io/


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