On this page we show you how to become an administrator of your server.


First, we determine what groups the server currently has and what permissions each group has.

To do this, go to "Tools -> File Explorer" in the Nitrado web interface and then to the following path:

"garrysmod -> garrysmod -> data -> ulib".

There you will find the file "groups.txt" in which all the groups are listed.

Normally the file looks like this:

		"ulx addgroup"

How can I become an administrator now?

It's pretty straightforward.

  • Go to "Tools -> Realtime Server Console" in Nitrado web interface
  • Enter the following command: ulx adduser "YOUR_INGAME_NAME" superadmin Enter your in-game name in the command, without quotations.
  • With Enter send the command to your server and you will establish yourself as administrator.

The group "superadmin" can also have a different name, depending on how it exists in groups.txt.
