Your own game server

This article will help you to create and configure your own 7 Days to Die server on your computer. In addition, these settings will lay the foundation for further installation of servers for the game, so follow the steps we have described below.

Installing and updating SteamCMD

SteamCMD is a command-line console (terminal) used to install Steam-related files, as well as a mechanism that installs and updates the 7 Day to Die server.

1) Create a folder for SteamCMD.

2) Create a folder for the future server.

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.

Setting up a dedicated server for the game

1) In 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 294420
  • (app_update 294420 -beta latest_experimental - if you want to get the latest experimental build)
  • quit

Customizing the serverconfig.xml
