How to become admin in your ECO server

Last updated: 10/10/18

To assign yourself as admin in Eco, you'll need to edit a configuration file on the server.

Head to the File Manager and into the Configs directory. From here, edit the Users.eco file.

It should start as something like this:

{
    "UseWaste": false,
    "RequireAuthentication": true,
    "AllowDebugCalls": false,
    "WhiteList": {
        "System.String": {
            "$type": "System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[System.String, mscorlib]], mscorlib",
            "$values": []
        }
    },
    "BlackList": {
        "System.String": {
            "$type": "System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[System.String, mscorlib]], mscorlib",
            "$values": []
        }
    },
    "Admins": {
        "System.String": {
            "$type": "System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[System.String, mscorlib]], mscorlib",
            "$values": []
        }
    },
    ...

Under the Admins section, inside the $values array, you'll need to add your SteamID 64 value. For example:

"Admins": {
    "System.String": {
        "$type": "System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[System.String, mscorlib]], mscorlib",
        "$values": [
            "STEAMID64"
        ]
    }
}

We'd recommend running this file through a .json parser before saving on your server, as any invalid syntax will cause the server to crash on startup.
