There are two ways to give a user admin permissions on your Factorio server.

The simplest way is to use the server console and use the `/promote {username}` command. If the command was successful the console will show a message reading: "{username} was promoted to admin by <server>".

Alternatively you can manually edit the `server-adminlist.json` file in the main directory of your server.

What new commands can Admins use?

  • `/admin`
    Activates the player management GUI.
  • `/ban {player} {reason}`
    Bans a player from the server.
  • `/unban {player}`
    Unbans a player from the server.
  • `/demote` {player}
    Demotes a player from admin.
  • `/kick {player} {reason}`
  • Kicks a player from the server. This player can re-join the server.
