How to Use Rust Oxide Commands
By Dalton Whalen
A large part of hosting a Rust server is adding plugins to improve gameplay. From increasing drop rates, to easy wipe mechanics, and more, these plugins can make the game more fun for all players. Some of these plugins require permissions to operate, however, which is where the built-in Oxide commands come into play. When your server is running uMod/Oxide support, you can use any of the commands to create or modify groups and give them the desired permissions for your plugins to work. With Apex Hosting, it is extremely easy to get started with Oxide, so today we will show you how to begin!
- Navigate to your Apex server panel and stop the server.
- Scroll down to the
Enable uMod Supportsection.
- Ensure the box is checked.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page, then press
- Restart the server to ensure all files load normally.
The server should now be running Oxide, allowing you to use the permission commands!
Oxide Permission Commands:
– Grants a permission to a player.
– Removes a permission from a player.
– Displays the specified users’ permissions.
– Displays all users that have the specified permission.
oxide.show perms – Shows all permissions.
oxide.show groups – Displays all Oxide groups.
– Displays a group’s permissions.
– Creates a new group.
– Removes an existing group.
– Grants a permission to a group.
– Remove a permission from a group.
– Adds a player to the specified group.
– Removes a player from a group.
Overall, using these Oxide commands is very important in order to ensure all plugins are working for each player. Whether you want to give the Default group some starting permissions, grant Admins increased powers, or simply have customized groups, all is possible with Oxide! These can be used in a variety of ways, especially if using a whitelist plugin, as you could create a new Member group that has whitelist access, then add any players you desire. Just remember to use and share the power responsibly and you’re good to go!
