How to Add Admins to a TShock Terraria Server

By Alex in

For this guide, your Terraria server needs to be running with TShock (we explained in another guide how to set up a Terraria server with TShock).

Adding Yourself as Super-Admin

If you haven’t already added yourself as the first super-admin to the server, you’ll need to find your server’s auth code.

  1. Navigate to your Terraria server’s tshock folder
  2. Open the authcode.txt file to find your server’s auth code (should be some numbers).
  3. While in-game, type: /auth <your-auth-code-here>
  4. You can now add yourself as superadmin by typing: /user add <username>:<password> superadmin
  5. Login to access your new super admin account by typing: /login <username> <password>

Adding Users as Admins

To add another player to a user group, create an account for them as follows:
/user add <username>:<password> <group>
Then, a user simply needs to login with the following command in-game:
/login <username> <password>
