Server Admin Commands

Ark Dedicated Server Setup For Windows & Linux

Another method of controlling your server is with administration and client commands. Below you'll find a list of all currently known commands. For the spawning of items and creatures I have a searchable list of spawn codes here: Item & Creature Spawn Codes

A detailed listing of Admin Commands for Ark Survival Evolved.

In order to access these commands, you will need to be playing the game logged onto your server. Then just press Tab and a small console window will appear along the bottom of the screen.

When playing a Single Player game you do not have to do anything special to gain access to these commands. However, if you are on a server you will need to enter the ServerAdminPassword using the following command:

enablecheats ServerAdminPassword
