How To: Add yourself as an admin

Post by Ragonz » Thu Apr 21, 2016 11:53 pm

1. Go to the game panel and click on telnet details
2. Download Putty (https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgt ... atest.html)
3. Connect to your server using your IP/Telnet Port
4. When prompted enter your password (putty will always reject the first password entry so when it does just enter it again)
5. Type in the following

setrole [steam64id] [admin level]
(replacing [steam64id] with your steam64 id and [admin level] with the permission level you want ie. admin, moderator or gm)
eg. setrole 11111111111111111 admin



Alternate Method (This does not work most of the time)

1. In your game panel go to game services > your Empyrion server
2. Click on configuration files
3. Edit adminconfig.yaml
4. replace the below (You can find your steam 64 id here https://steamid.co/ )

Elevated:
- Id: 00000000000000000 # put the correct SteamID64 here
Permission: 3 # make this user a GameMaster, for example
- Id: 11111111111111111
Permission: 6

with (for example)

Elevated:
- Id: yoursteam64id # put the correct SteamID64 here
Permission: 3 # make this user a GameMaster, for example
- Id: someoneelse'ssteam64id
Permission: 6

5. Save the file
6. reboot the server




# 'Permission' is 3 for 'GameMaster', 6 for 'Moderator' and 9 for 'Admin' - other values are not allowed.
