Overview

As a server owner, having access to the players that have joined the server can be vital. Whether it is to gauge how many players have joined, providing the players with permissions, or to track down specific players, this can all be achieved through the game panel’s Player tab. Here, players can have a set name, be assigned to a panel user, set as banned, and much more. Additionally, you will have access to a variety of information such as the player’s last quit reason, IP address, and when they were last seen. Understanding and navigating the Players tab can be confusing for unfamiliar players, so we have created this Apex Hosting guide to ease you through the setup process.
 

Creating a New Player

  1. Navigate to the Apex Server Panel.
  2. Proceed to the Players tab on the left-hand side.
  3. Press Create Player in the top-left.
