Creating a dedicated DayZ server

Use DayZ server hosting. DayZ was released in 2013 and developed by Bohemia Interactive. It is available on various platforms (PC, Xbox One, and PS4) and is still regularly updated by players who add their own content (mods) to it. The game has a special place in the hearts of many players, and this is reflected in the online game and the number of modifications, such as role-playing servers (RP) and battle royale modes. Do you want to make your own DayZ server and invite your friends and other players?

Where to start the DayZ server setup? Read below

Choose which server characteristics you need

The server plan depends entirely on how you are going to use it - that is, whether you will have a lot of players on it or you want a small server "for your own".

Dayz server setup

Download and manage with SteamCMD

SteamCMD is a command-line console (terminal) used to install Steam-related files and is the mechanism by which the DayZ server is installed and updated.

1) Create a folder for the server.

2) Create a server file in this folder, for example, "MyDayZServer".

3) Download SteamCMD for Windows.

4) Unzip the contents of the zip file to the folder you created for steamcmd.

5) Run the steamcmd.exe program (your computer may ask you to confirm that you want to run it).

6) Once launched, this file will be downloaded, installed and updated to the latest version of SteamCMD.

Dedicated DayZ server settings

At the console prompt, enter the following commands one by one (press Enter after each):

  • force_install_dir "The path to the folder with your server"
  • login "Your Steam login"
  • password "password"
  • app_update 221100
  • quit

Now use the console to configure your server's settings and rules as you wish. There are many online tutorials to help you with this.
