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
You must use a Steam64ID (looks like 76894329123023 ) you can obtain your own using this website:
Option 1
Step 1: Open your Web Console from within your game panel. In the password section, enter in your Rcon password. This password is found/set in your server.cfg
Step 2: Type in ownerid Steam64ID (replacing Steam64ID with your Steam ID) and hit enter. You should receive confirmation that it was successfully added.
Step 3: Type in server.writecfg and hit enter. If you were on the server, you will need to log out and then back in.
Option 2
Step 1: With your server stopped, click the 'Configuration File' button in the control panel.
Step 2: Click the text editor option for the 'users.cfg'
Step 3: On a new line add
ownerid Steam64ID
replace Steam64ID with the steam64ID of the player you are wanting to give admin to
Step 4: Click save
It should look like
ownerid 76894329123023
If you are wanting to have multiple admins, you would add them each on their own line in the text editor
ownerid 76894329123023
ownerid 76894329413023
ownerid 76894329123222
ownerid 76897813015177
ownerid 76894329123023
