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 and many others.

If you want to configure your Euro Truck Simulator 2 server follow this guide:

1. Stop your euro Truck simulator 2 server

Navigate “Console” tab in your server panel, then click on “Stop” button to stop your server.

2. Start basic configuration

Once your server is stopped, you can start changing your server parameters. To do this, you need to go to the “Startup” tab which contains most important parameters of your Euro Truck Simulator 2 server. The table below shows all variables you can change in “Startup” tab.

Auto update ON This variable allows you to update your server in line with Steam updates when is ON. Turn OFF to disable this option.
Steam Auth token Assign GSLT token to the server.
Server Name default hostname Assign name for your server.
Max Players 8 Set maximum amount of players on your server.
Password Set password for your server. Password is not required.
Max Vehicles 100 Specify total number of AI vehicles allowed on the map.

3. Perform advanced configuration

If the table does not contain the parameters you want to change, you can do it in the configuration file called server_config.sii.

Access your server files by opening “Files” tab in your server panel.

Follow this path to find configuration file: /home/container/.local/share/Euro Truck Simulator 2/server_config.sii
