How to configure your 7 Days To Die Adminconfigcustom.xml
Edit The Admin File
You can edit the Admin permissions file, which is location in the Configuration Files. It is recommended to stop the server when making changes to the configuration file to ensure that they save properly.
Login to your control panel, and click configuration files.
Select text editor on the Serveradmincustom.XML file.
Once you have edited the file, make sure to click save.
Restart the server if you did not turn it off prior to this.
You require your Steam 64 ID, which can be obtained from https://steamid.io/
Once you have obtained your Steam 64 ID, you can continue on.
Please note in the config file EVERYTHING BETWEEN <!- - and - -> IS COMMENTED OUT! And is not active on the server so you have to edit the file slightly.
<adminTools> <admins> <!-- <admin steamID="add Guid" permission_level="0" /> --> <!-- <admin steamID="add Guid" permission_level="0" /> -->
This would need to be changed to:
<adminTools> <admins> <admin steamID="XXXXXXXXX" permission_level="0" /> <admin steamID="XXXXXXXXX" permission_level="0" />
Now that the <!- - and - -> has been removed, and the Steam 64 ID code has been entered. This activates admin privileges.
Example user admin to be added with full permissions: <user steamID="76561198021925107" name="Hint on who this user is" permission_level="0" />
The line needs to be inputted as above but it will change to reflect the platform in the config after starting the server. For example: <user platform="Steam" userid="76561198021925107" name="Hint on who this user is" permission_level="0" /> will be displayed after starting the server.
Next you have to sort out permissions and there is no right way or wrong way to do this, it all depends if you have moderators on your server or not or plan to have more than one admin.
If any permissions in the file have <!- - and - -> make sure they are removed so the command is activated. Each permissions activates something different, it is up to you if you want them turned on. The config file itself explains in details about each command.
