CSGO: How do I make myself admin in SourceMod?
Please read How do I connect to my FTP server? if you do not know how to connect to your FTP server.
Once you've successfully installed Metamod and Sourcemod (CSGO: How do I install SourceMod on my server?), you will need to make yourself admin to run sourcemod commands. There are 2 options: "Simple" and "Detailed". We are dealing with the simple method here, since this is sufficient for most servers. If not, you can find the official tutorial here.
Find your SteamID
You can also connect to a server and enter the command "status" in the console. The console then gives you the SteamID's of all players on the server. Some games will list your SteamID3 (U:X:XX) rather than your SteamID, as shown in the picture below. In this case you will need to convert it to SteamID using steamid.io.
The admin file
You can find your admin config file here: /addons/sourcemod/configs/admins_simple.ini
Open the file and scroll down to the bottom. In a completely empty line enter:
"STEAM_x: x: xxxxxxxx" "99: z"
For a normal admin it might look like this:
"STEAM_x: x: xxxxxxxx" "50: abcdefghijk"
Here is a list of all the rights you can give.
|reservation||a||Reserves a slot|
|generic||b||Required for admins|
|kick||c||Can others kick|
|ban||d||Can ban others|
|unban||e||Can unbench others|
|slay||f||Can kill/hurt others|
|changemap||G||Can change the map|
|cvar||H||Can change most cvar's|
|config||i||Can run configs|
|chat||j||Special chat rights|
|vote||k||Can create/start votes|
|password||l||Can set a password for the server|
|con||m||an RCON use commands|
|cheats||n||Can change and use sv_cheats|
|root||z||Magically activates all rights and gives immunity to everything|
Sourcemod has a very flexible immunity system. Every admin can have an "immunity level". Immunity levels control, for example, which admins can "kick" or "slay" other admins.
Example: Admin#1 has a "Level" of 3 and Admin#2 has a "Level of 10.
Admin#1 can neither kick, ban, slay Admin#2. Admin#2, however, can do all that to Admin#1.
Admins with "z" flag are immune to everything.
