How to Add Admins to Your Factorio Server

When managing your Factorio server, you may need more players with admin privileges to be able to efficiently manage your server. This way, you will be able to have other admins that can help you run the server.

In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the steps of adding admins to your Factorio server using our intuitive game panel.

You can add admins to your server using your game server panel or manually using in-game commands.

๐Ÿ”Œ Add Admins via the Game Server Panel ๐Ÿ”Œ

Our custom game panel provides a simple way to add admins to your server when needed. Just follow the next steps:

Log in to your game server panel here.

Click on your Factorio instance, then click on Manage, and then stop the server.



Click on Configuration, then on Server.


Find the Admins section, click on Add, then input the username of the player, and click on Ok.



Start your Factorio server by clicking on Status, then on Start.

โœ”๏ธ Give Admin Role Manually โœ”๏ธ

You can also give the admin role to a player via commands in-game or in your game server panel.

โš  NOTE โš : Keep in mind that you will have to already be an admin to be able to promote someone in-game.

To promote a player to admin, you just need to use the following command:

/promote username

Replace the username with the actual player's username.

โš  NOTE โš : To open the console in-game, just press the ~ key on your keyboard.

๐Ÿ“ Server Admin Commands ๐Ÿ“

Once a player is promoted to the admin role, he will be able to use the following commands:

/adminWill open the player's GUI.
/ban <username> [reason]Will ban a player for the specified reason if mentioned.
/promote <username>Will promote a player to the admin role.
/demote <username>Will demote a player from the admin role.
/kick <username>Will kick a player.
/mute <usernameWill mute a player.
/open <username>Will open the inventory of a player.
/purge <username>Will delete all messages a player sent has sent in the past.
/swap-player <username1> [username2]Will switch the position of a player. If a second player is added, it will switch their location.
/ unban <username>Will unban a player.
/unmute <username>Will mute a player.

We also need to understand the meaning of the arguments for each command that we will use:

โ“ The ones between ' <> ' are necessary for the command to work; you need to fill that campus with the correct argument.
โ“ The ones between ' [] ' are not necessary for the command and are usually extra features. You can use the command while leaving those spaces empty, and it will still work.

If you find any issues, contact us on live chat or via the ticket system.
