Server Management

Jump to: navigation, search

Servers don't normally need too much over sight from owners or admins, but some times issues can arise because of bugs or troublesome players. Here are a few tips on how to do a few basic management things.

The #server-talk and #official-support channels on the official Eco Discord server are good places to ask for help.

Promote a Player to Admin[edit | edit source]

To make a player an admin on the server, you have to add the player's SLGID and/or Steam64ID to the `Users.eco` file's admin list.

Ban a Player[edit | edit source]

Changing Spawn Point[edit | edit source]

Provided you have access to the Server UI, you don't need to fiddle with the config files to set spawn. While the /setspawn admin command will update the spawn point to your current location (and will show up in WorldGenerator.eco in the Server UI), it requires you to click on File -> Save in the Server UI for it to persist across reboots.

Delete a Player[edit | edit source]

You cannot delete a player's profile from the server.

This was only possible in older versions of the game, but as of v0.8.0.0 it is no longer possible to delete a player profile without corrupting the world beyond repair.

Proper Shutdown[edit | edit source]

The server software will automatically save the world and shutdown the server when it is closed.
