Heather Bennett

In this tutorial, we will learn how to connect a Discord bot to a 5m server. Whether you want to enhance your server’s functionality or add custom features, integrating a Discord bot can greatly improve the user experience. Let’s dive in!

Step 1: Creating a Discord Bot

Before we can connect our bot to the 5m server, we need to create a Discord bot account. Follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Go to the Discord Developer Portal.
  • Step 2: Click on “New Application” and give your bot a name.
  • Step 3: Navigate to the “Bot” section and click on “Add Bot”.
  • Step 4: Customize your bot’s avatar and username if desired.

Step 2: Obtaining the Bot Token

To connect our bot to the server, we’ll need its unique token. Here’s how you can obtain it:

  • Step 1: In the Discord Developer Portal, go to your application.
  • Step 2: Under the “Bot” section, you’ll find your bot’s token. Click on “Copy” to save it.

Step 3: Setting Up Your Server for Integration

In order for our bot to interact with the server, we need to invite it and grant necessary permissions. Follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Go to your Discord server and open the “Server Settings”.
  • Step 2: Navigate to the “Roles” tab and click on “Create Role”.
  • Step 3: Customize the role’s name and permissions. Make sure to enable “Manage Server” and “Manage Channels” permissions.
  • Step 4: Once created, go to the “Members” tab and assign this role to your bot.

Step 4: Connecting the Bot to 5m Server

Now that we have everything set up, let’s connect our Discord bot to the 5m server:

  • Step 1: Open your server.cfg file in your FiveM server directory.
  • Step 2: Look for the line containing “# discord_bot“. Remove the “#” to uncomment it.
  • Step 3: Replace “BOT_TOKEN_HERE” with your Discord bot’s token obtained in Step 2.
  • Step 4: Save the changes and restart your FiveM server for the changes to take effect.

Troubleshooting Tips

If you encounter any issues during the integration process, here are a few troubleshooting tips:

No Bot Presence in Server

If you don’t see your bot online in Discord, ensure that you’ve invited it using the correct invite URL provided in the Developer Portal. Also, double-check if you assigned it the correct role with necessary permissions on your server.

Error: Bot Token Incorrect or Invalid

If you receive an error message stating that the bot token is incorrect or invalid, verify that you copied the token correctly from the Developer Portal. Also, make sure you have properly saved and restarted your FiveM server after making changes to your server.cfg file.

Congratulations! You have now successfully connected your Discord bot to your 5m server.

Your bot will now be able to interact with the server and perform various functions based on its configuration. Feel free to explore more possibilities and enhance your server’s capabilities with your newly integrated Discord bot!
