Here you will learn how to become admin on your post scriptum game server.

Where to start?

First, you will need to configure the groups of your server and the access levels for these groups. Then you will configure the admin and assign it to a group created.

Configuring your Groups

  • Stop Server. If you make the changes while the server is running, it might happen that they will be overwritten after a reboot.
  • Navigate to your Nitrado Webinterface
  • Access your "File Browser" in the "Tools" section
  • Go to the following: postscriptumwin > PostScriptum > ServerConfig > Admins.cfg
  • Scroll down to configure management groups. Open the file Admins.cfg in the web interface through the point Configuration files .

1. Configure groups

Groups allow you to categorize individual authorizations. For example, you can create a group "Administrator" or "Moderator", whereby these groups are assigned different authorizations.

The format for adding groups is: (List of Permissions Below)

  • Group=<Group Name>:<Permission 1>,<Permission 2>,<Permission 3>

Example:

 Group=Admin:kick,ban,changemap,reserve,adminchat,chat
Group=Moderator:kick,ban,reserve,adminchat

2. Assign groups

Assigning groups is similar to creating groups. The groups are still assigned in the file Admins.cfg at the end of the file.

To assign a player to a group, you need their Steam64ID. This is an ID that Steam uses internally to identify players. You can find them on the following website:

  • https: //steamidfinder.com/


Then create a new line in the file at the end with the following format:

  • Admin = <Steam64ID>: <group name>


The following is an example:

Admin = 765611980 ########: Admin
Admin = 765611980 ########: Moderator

Once you are done with the configuration, save it and start your server. Your settings will then be adopted.
