Adding An Admin To An Ark Server
We guide you through adding an admin to an Ark: Survival Evolved server in 3 simple steps. There are some benefits to doing this.
Navigate to \ShooterGame\Saved in your ARK server install and create a text file called AllowedCheaterSteamIDs.txt
Add one Steam64ID per line for each admin you require to be an admin on your Ark server. You can get your Steam64ID from SteamId.co
Save the file and start your ARK server.
If you are hosting through a hosting provider most will have an easy access to this file and have it created for you. All you have to do is add your Steam64ID. If the host uses TCAdmin as their control panel (Most do!) you can normally find this file listed under the ‘Configuration Files’ area.
