How to install uMod/Oxide plugins

In this guide, we'll be going over the installation of Oxide plugins. This guide assumes you have downloaded your Oxide plugins from the Oxide website, that Oxide has been installed, and that the server has been started at least once with Oxide being installed.

Using Host Havoc's uMod Plugin Installer (Quick and Easy):
Step 1: Log into the Host Havoc game control panel.
Step 2: Click on the "uMod/Oxide Plugin Installer"
Step 3: Find the mod you wish to install on the uMod website and copy the page's URL.  For instance, let's say we wanted to install the following mod:
We would simply enter the following into the text field:
If we wanted to install these three mods:
We would enter them all into the text field separated by a space. For example:
Step 4: Click the Execute button and let the procedure run (should take no more than 5 seconds).
Step 5: You're all set. You can also use this method to update your plugins.

Manual method (slower):
Step 1: Log into the Host Havoc game control panel.
Step 2: Open the File Manager and navigate to the following directory: \oxide\plugins\ >. If this is not present, uninstall and re-install Oxide via the "Non-Workshop Mods" icon and start the server for it to be generated.
Step 3: Upload your plugin file to this directory via the Upload button at the top left of the file manager window.
Step 4: Restart the server.
Step 5: You're all set! :)

*Note: We cannot and will not offer any guarantees that Oxide plugins will function as expected, nor can we offer support when it comes to their functionality or the effects that they may have on the Rust server, nor will we be held liable for any performance issues which are directly at the fault of these plugins or the Oxide system as a whole.
