Adding Admins to Your Valheim Server

This article will guide you through the process of adding admins to your Valheim server.

Adding Admins

First, you must find the player ID of the player you want to admin. These are in the common Steam64ID format and there are a few places where you can easily find this. One will be in your server's Console - when a player joins the server, you will see two lines that will provide their ID.

You can also get their ID in-game by pressing the F2 key on your keyboard. In the lower section "Players", you will see their in-game name and their player ID, which we have crossed out in the screenshot.

Now you need to add that number to the adminlist.txt file located in /.config/unity3d/IronGate/Valheim in the "File Manager" section in your NodePanel.

You can also use a tool such as to lookup and find these Steam64IDs.
