Header image

Configuration adapts server to individual needs of the owner and players. A person with access to server files can change almost all parameters, such as maximum number of players, password, combat mode, max ping and many more. In the case of a Conan Exiles server, the configuration has a huge impact on the quality of the game and player satisfaction.

If you want to configure your Conan Exiles server follow this guide:

1. Stop your server

Open server panel website in your favorite browser. Once you are in, you need to find your Conan Exiles server on the server list. Click on it – you will be redirected to the “Console” tab where you can stop your server by clicking on “Stop” button.

2. Perform basic configuration

Go to the “Startup” tab in your Conan Exiles server panel. This tab contains the most important parameters of your server – you can change them without editing the configuration file. The table below shows all variables you can change in “Startup” tab.

Auto Update 1 Enable/disable automatic server update, default = ON
Server Name default hostname Assign name for your server
Server Password Set server password
Message of The Day Set Message of The Day
VAC Protection Enabled Enable/disable VAC Protection
Battle Eye Protection Enabled Enable/disable Battle Eye Protection
PvP Enabled True Set game mode (true = PvP, false = PvE)
Maximum Nudity 1 Decide what level of nudity will be allowed on your server
Server Community Determine the type of community on your server – community type will help players to find a server that match their playstyle.
Admin Password Set admin password
Server Region 0 Set server region
Max Clan Size 10 Set max clan size
Max Ping Set max ping
Combat Mode Modifier 0 Set PvE-C game mode (enable PvE-C = 1, disable PvE-C = 0). If you want this game mode to work, remember that PvP Enabled = true is required
Max Players 40 Set maximum amount of players allowed on your server

3. Perform more advances configuration

If you are not satisfied with the server configuration performed in the “Startup” tab, you can edit more advanced server variables in the main configuration file. To do this, go to the “Files” tab to access the files of your Conan Exiles server. You can perform advanced configuration in the ServerSettings.ini file. Follow this path to find it: /home/container/ConanSandbox/Saved/Config/WindowsServer/ServerSettings.ini
