Hey guys,

because I saw many people who weren't sure about how to add admins to sourcemod, install plugins or how to add new maps and so on I want to write a short HowTo about it:

Table of content:

3.How to add admins to sourcemod
4.How to add new maps to your server
5.How to open the console in Source games

1: How to install plugins to your server:

1.Login to your controlpanel
2.Click +mods in the "Active Subscriptions" section on the server you want to install the mod on
3.Read through the descrptions of the available mods and press on install if you want to add it
4.If you installed all plugins you want to have on your server you simply have to restart your server by clicking on the button named "restart"
5.Now connect to your server and the plugins should work


2.My server is running on an old version and I can't connect to it.What shall i do now?

1.Login to your controlpanel
2.Click +mods in the "Active Subscriptions" section on the server you want to update
3.Install the mod named "Update - Steam"
4.Restart your server by clicking on the button named "restart"
5.Try connecting to your server


3.How to add admins to sourcemod

1.Login to your controlpanel
2.If you haven't installed Sourcemod yet do it first (have a look on 1.(How to install plugins to your server))
3.Click on "Config" in the "Active Subscriptions" section on the server you want to add the admin
4.Go to "Choose File" and choose "Sourcemod administrators" and press "Load config"
5.Add the SteamID (let the person join your server and write status in the console so you can see the SteamID) of the person you want to be admin on your server and add flags (z=root, more information are on the developer page of sourcemod)
6.Press "submit" and restart the server
7.Now the person should be able to use commands like !admin

1.Login to your controlpanel
2.Click on "Info" in the "Active Subscriptions" section on the server you want to add the new map
3.Login to your FTP (if you don't know how to do this have a look on this: http://faq.gameservers.com/videos/ftptut/ )
4.Go to /css/cstrike/maps and upload the previously downloaded map to it
5.Go to /css/cstrike/maplist.txt and to /css/cstrike/mapcircle.txt and add the name of the map to both of them

I was facing the same problems written in this article. But when I read the whole article I felt amazing because this Edubirdie.org article helped me solve my problem regarding my server. I am really happy and I do not have words to explain how happy I am so thanks for it.
