How can I change my Rust server seed, RCON password, and other options?

In order to change your server seed (not world size), first login to the control panel at http://cp.chicagoservers.co

Then, go to Commandline Manager > Custom Commandlines > New

Type in a Description for your custom command line such as "Custom".

Check the box next to "Server Seed" and enter in whatever number you want. It must be between 5-10 digits long.

** CHECK THE BOXES FOR EACH BOX YOU ENTER SOMETHING IN TO OR IT WILL NOT APPLY IT.

Once done, click save. You will be brought back to your custom command lines.

Select your custom command line and your server should automatically restart. If it doesn't, restart your server. You can always come back to your custom command line and edit whenever by clicking Edit.

** Changing your server name can be done in the configuration file. For more information on that, read this article: https://chicagoservers.co/clients/index.php?rp=/knowledgebase/17/How-can-I-change-my-server-name.html
