How do I become a server admin on my Project Zomboid server?

In order to become an admin on your server, you only need to follow a few steps, which we will show you below.

  • Log in to your account
  • Open the web interface of your server
  • Set the server to “Offline” (turn it off)
  • Now click on the basic settings of your server
  • Scroll down until you find the item “Admin Password
  • Now enter the desired password

After setting the password in the web interface, log in to your Project Zomboid server and follow the steps below:

  • Instead of your usual username, enter “admin” (without quotes and all in small letters)
  • As password use the one you have set in the web interface before

And that was it. Now you should be able to use the admin commands on your server.

Below we give you an overview of all admin commands you can use now.
