This tutorial explains how to create an admin account on a Starbound Gameserver.

Creating the admin account

To create an admin account, we'd first need to open the server's configuration file. Open the "Settings" -> "Configuration files" section of the server's Webinterface. Now, select the "Starbound.config" to open it and search for a line stating "serverUsers":

"serverUsers" : {
  	"TestAdmin" : {
          "admin" : true,
          "password" : "ASUdgb83"

The above code adds a user with the name "TestAdmin" authenticated by the password "ASUdgb83".

Login with an admin account

It's now possible to enable admin functions by executing "/admin" in the in-game console.
