How to configure a Garrys Mod server

Header image

Garry’s Mod server configuration gives administrators full control over all aspects of the game. It allows you to fully adapt the game to the needs of the often demanding community. The server allows you to install additional maps, mods and plugins that improve the gameplay and allow you to offer unique functions often unavailable on other servers. Experimenting with your server gives you the chance to test out different settings and game modes, which is welcome on Garry’s Mod servers!

 

How to configure Garry’s Mod server through our game server panel:

1. Stop your server

Open game server panel in your favorite browser and select your Garry’s Mod server from the list. You should be redirected to the “Console” tab where you can quickly select “Stop” button.
