7 Days To Die Server Commands

There are three ways to send commands to the server:

  • In-Game console – using it, you may execute administrative commands related to the gameplay. Still, you can’t configure the server itself from the in-game console.
  • Web console gives you access to all server commands from our web panel. You can do anything – including shutting down the server.
  • You may also get access via telnet service (you need to use telnet client program for that). You can enable telnet in the configuration panel – you will be given a port and password. Using telnet, you can run the same set of commands as through the web console. Server management tools like RAT uses telnet protocol to connect to your server. Unless you use a program like RAT we recommend using a web console instead of telnet.
