How do you setup server admins

Post by TheOakStaff » 02 Apr 2020, 16:43

Hello,
I'm very new to the whole dedicated server/server hosting in general and was wondering how one is supposed to set up admins and super-admins on ones server. I gets a bit tedious waiting for all the people on the server to agree vote on the next map and I'd rather just force it through. Any help would be much appreciated.

I followed this exact tutorial when originally made the server, however nowhere did I have to put in the name of my player account only my dedicated server account. Did I miss something about setting up server admins?

It sounds like you're going to need to set up a server controller (PyPlanet, eXpansion, UASECO, etc). Whichever one you choose should have a place in their configuration file for adding ManiaPlanet login names of the users you want to be at different levels of control access. (The users will be controlling the server controller... NOT the server itself)

You will need to read the documentation of the controller you choose.

As far as configuring the SuperAdmin, Admin and User password for the dedicated server itself (the passwords the server controller will need to use in order to actually control the server) you set it up in the dedicated_cfg.txt:

Code: Select all

<authorization_levels>
	<level>
		<name>SuperAdmin</name>
		<password>YourSuperAdminPassword</password>
	</level>
	<level>
		<name>Admin</name>
		<password>YourAdminPassword</password>
	</level>
	<level>
		<name>User</name>
		<password>YourUserPassword</password>
	</level>
</authorization_levels>

Can you recommend any of these? The simpler the better.

I have only had recent experience with PyPlanet and I like it. There are many others here that will be better authorities on what is simplest, etc.
