Article: How to whitelist a DayZ Server
In this guide, we are going to be showing you the exact steps on how to whitelist your DayZ Server.
A server whitelist is like a special guest list for a party. It's a list of people or devices that are allowed to access someones server / game server. If your name or device is on the list, you can join and use the server. If it's not on the list, you won't be allowed in. It's a way to control who can and cannot access the server, typically used for security or access management.
Whitelisting a DayZ server offers benefits such as control over who accesses the server, increased security, the opportunity to build a strong and cooperative player community, reduced griefing and rule enforcement, improved server performance, exclusive event hosting, and privacy for players seeking a more secluded gaming experience. By carefully managing the whitelist and maintaining clear rules and communication, server administrators can create a more enjoyable and secure DayZ gameplay environment for authorized players while minimizing disruptive behavior and ensuring fair play.
Now you have enabled the server whitelist, you are going to need to whitelist yourself onto the server. This is a very simple and easy process.
Firstly, you are going to want to connect to the server and then head over to your server console. From there you will see your player data. It will look something along the lines of
You are then going to want to grab the Survivor ID, in this case it will be Survivor (587426089) and then you will head over to the "whitelist.txt" file within the file manager and paste this in.
Then restart your server and you should now be whitelisted to your DayZ Server.
