As a Valheim Server grows, the need for server moderation many times becomes essential. To mitigate any community caused problems, server owners will bring on Admins to assist the server in moderating and sometimes development. In Valheim specifically, Administrators are given a few commands that will assist them in monitoring the server and community. Some of these commands include the ability to kick, ban, and unban players. Setting players as admins is not as simple as just typing a command into the server console, so many server owners run into issues during the process. That is why we will be walking you through the entire process of setting admins onto your Valheim server.
In order to add a player as an admin, you will first need to gather their SteamID64 number. This will allow the game to keep track of each player when they join.

Now that you know how to do so, you can easily repeat the process at any time. With that, you are ready to begin playing on your Valheim server and work together with others!
