Conan Exiles - Dedicated Server Setup Guide

This guide shows you what is required to get your very own Conan Exiles dedicated server up and running. Not too much is known about Conan Exiles right now and i will update this guid as more is known. If you see any errors, please let me know and i will update them here in the guide.

Installation of Server Files



The first step is to retrieve the files for the game, this is done via SteamCMD.

Follow the guide here on how to use STEAMCMD.

Once you have STEAMCMD, run the following command:
steamcmd +login anonymous +force_install_dir C:\SteamCMD\conanexilesserver +app_update 443030 validate +exit

Note: You can adjust the +force_install_dir paramter to the directory you want to download the server to.

This will then download the entire game, Once completed, it's time to setup the server configuration.

Server Configuration



In this section we define the options on configuration and some basic commandline parameters

The best method for a self-hosted solution is to use the provided .batch file

Inside conanexilesserver folder where you downloaded the game files, Run ConanServer.bat.

This will generated configuration files that you can edit. Once this is done, close the server files.

How do I set my server name?



Go into: Engine.ini file

Add the following, you can change "My Server" to anything you want e.g. Garrys server

[OnlineSubsystemSteam]
ServerName=My Server

Setting Password and ports



There are several other options you can set in Engine.ini, these are:

[OnlineSubsystemSteam]

ServerPassword=Password123
Port=27015
QueryPort=7777

The Serverpassword is the password required to join your server, the Port and Queryport can be used to set alternative specific ports, useful if running multiple servers.

How do I set players for my servers?



Go into: Game.ini and add the following:

[/script/engine.gamesession]

MaxPlayers=70

Change 70 to desired max player count you want.

Running the Server



The best method for a self-hosted solution is to use the provided .batch file

Inside conanexilesserver folder where you downloaded the game files, Run ConanServer.bat.

Please note some port-forwarding may be required, by default the server will use port 7777 and 27015, you should unblock this port in your firewall\router.
