How to Install and Configure uMod/Oxide Plugins for Rust

This article is to help guide you with installing and configuring plugins using uMod/Oxide. The following images are examples of the control panel.

How to install and update uMod/Oxide

Please make sure the server is fully stopped before proceeding

Rust Control Panel
On the dashboard for your game server, click the "Mod Manager" button.

Click "Install" next to the uMod/Oxide mod.

Once done, you must startup the server fully to generate the required files. Its a good idea to join now to check everything is still working.

If you'd like to browser the available plugins using a web browser method, here is a direct link: Rust uMod Plugins

As of 27th January We have two plugin install methods.

New- Custom Mod Manager

Click the Custom mod manager icon.
You will be presented with a selection of umod plugins, which you can also search for plugins.
Click install on any plugins you require.

Old - One Click Plugin Installer.

One click uMod/Oxide Plugin Installer
uMod/Oxide One Click Installer Example
Once Oxide is installed, go back to the dashboard for your game server and you will see a new button "One click uMod / Oxide Plugin Installer!", click this

Find a plugins you want from the uMod website

Click, so that you're on the plugins page. Then copy the URL, and paste it into the box shown after clicking the button in step 3. You can specify multiple, one per line.

You must use the website URL, not the download URL. If it has .cs on the end, is the wrong URL.

Click execute and wait until done. Start the server. All done!

There may-be a few plugins that don't install using this method, such as if they need a special file elsewhere, simply contact us if this is the case and we can help.

You can use the above steps to update the plugin/s too.

To Configure Plugins

You must have started the server once fully after installing the plugin before proceeding.

Please note, not all mods have configuration, if you are sure a mod has config, but no file is here for it. Please make sure you have started the server fully and connected for good measure, after installing the mod

The following image is an example of how to find and edit the config file of a plugin.
Rust Config Editor Example

On the dashboard for your game server, click the "File Explorer" button.

Then click the Oxide folder, then the config folder.

In here are all your config files for the plugins/mods.

Right click on the config file that you need to edit and configure and then click "Edit".

Once done, click save, then start or restart the server.
