Becoming Admin

The following steps are necessary to elevate a player's privileges to administrator in-game on an ARK: Survival Evolved Game server:

  • The admin password can be viewed and altered in the "Settings>General" section of the Gameserver's Web interface followed by a server restart to take effect:

  • In the Gameplay section you will find the option to enable console access.


  • Once the console is active, you can open it by selecting "Minus.png" from the game menu.



  • Use the enablecheats ADMINPASSWORD command, keeping in mind that ADMINPASSWORD must be replaced by the password you have from your server interface.
  • You will now be able to make use of the administrator commands by typing them from the administrator console.

You can test the commands by going back to the admin bar, and entering the command cheat fly if your character is able to fly, then admin commands function. Revert this command with cheat walk.


ADDITIONAL NOTE: Many admin commands require the user to enter cheat before the command. Please take a look at some of the commands available in game, Admin Commands for ARK Survival Evolved (Console)

Any other users wanting to be Admin will need the Admin password
