Step-by-step guide: Adding an admin to your Rust server

Step 1: Install Oxide and Rust Essentials

To begin, you'll need to install Oxide, a popular server modding framework, and Rust Essentials, a plugin that provides essential admin tools. These two components will serve as the foundation for adding an admin to your server.

  • Download the latest version of Oxide from the official website.
  • Locate your Rust server's installation directory and navigate to the "oxide" folder.
  • Extract the Oxide files into the "oxide" folder, replacing any existing files.
  • Download Rust Essentials from the Oxide plugin repository.
  • Copy the Rust Essentials plugin file into the "oxide/plugins" folder.

Step 2: Configure Oxide and Rust Essentials

Once Oxide and Rust Essentials are installed, it's time to configure them to suit your server's needs. This involves setting up permissions, roles, and admin privileges.

  • Launch your Rust server on the Game Panel.
  • Open the server console.
  • Head over to the file manager.
  • Navigate to the "oxide/config" folder.
  • Open the "oxide.groups.json" file using a text editor.
  • Modify the existing roles or create new roles based on your desired permissions.
  • Assign the appropriate permissions to each role.
  • Save the changes and close the file.

Step 3: Promote a player to admin status

Now that your server is configured, it's time to promote a player to admin status. This will grant them the necessary privileges to perform administrative tasks on the server.

  • In the server console or remote console, type the command "/oxide.grant user player_id> role_name>".
  • Replace "player_id>" with the Steam ID of the player you want to promote.
  • Replace "role_name>" with the name of the admin role you created earlier.
  • Press enter to execute the command.
  • Verify that the player has been successfully promoted to admin status by checking the server console for any error messages.
Congratulations! You have successfully added an admin to your Rust server. The promoted player will now have access to admin commands and tools, allowing them to effectively manage the server and support other players.
