How to Add an Admin to a Garrys Mod Server Print

  • 17

Looking to become an Admin on your Garry's Mod server? By default, Garry's Mod does not include a setting/option to add admins to your server. Using a Steam Workshop Collection and the ULX Admin addon, you're able to add admins to your Garry's Mod server! Admin access allows a user to execute all Garry's Mod commands.

Creating and Adding a Steam Workshop Collection with the ULX Admin Addon

  1. Begin by creating the Steam Workshop Collection by following this guide.
    When creating the Steam Workshop Collection, include the ULX Admin addon and ULib addon in that collection.

  2. Once the Steam Workshop Collection has been created, add that collection to your server by following this guide.

  3. Once the Steam Workshop Collection has been added to your server, click Restart on your control panel to load those addons on your server.

Adding an Admin to your Garry's Mod Server Through RCON

  1. Start by ensuring you're connected to your server.

  2. Now, go on your Garry's Mod server's control panel.

  3. On your server's control panel, to the left click Console.

  4. In your server's console, type the following commands:
    rcon_password <password>
    ulx adduser <username> superadmin

    Replace <username> with your Steam username.
    Type this command multiple times for multiple users.

  5. After typing that command, press Send to send in the command.

  6. Afterward, we recommend that you restart your server.
    Once your server is online, you will now be a superadmin.

 

Adding an Admin to your Garry's Mod Server Through Your FTP

  1. Go on your Garry's Mod server's control panel.

  2. On your server's control panel, to the left click FTP File Access.
    This will open your server's FTP.

  3. In your server's FTP, go to the location: /garrysmod/garrysmod/settings/users.txt/
    Click to edit the users.txt file.

  4. In this file, locate the superadmin section.

  5. Under that section, you should see this:

            //"garry"          "STEAM_0:1:7099"

  6. Replace the name garry with your Steam username.
    Replace STEAM_0:1:7099 with your Steam ID. You can use SteamIO to locate your Steam ID!

  7. Finally, remove the // that are behind your username. Here is an example of that setting filled in:
            "mcph"          "STEAM_0:1:01270127"

 

If you need to add further superadmins, simply copy this section and follow steps 5-7 for each superadmin you wish to add:

    "superadmin"

    {

        //"garry"          "STEAM_0:1:7099"

    }

  1. After making changes, click Save File and exit your server's FTP.

  2. Finally, click Restart on your server's control panel to load those changes!

 

You have now successfully given users admin on your Garry's Mod Server!
