How Do You Make a Conan Exiles Private Server?


Angela Bailey

Conan Exiles is an exciting multiplayer survival game that allows players to explore a vast open world and build their own empires. While the official servers provide a great gaming experience, many players prefer the flexibility and control of playing on a private server. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of setting up your very own Conan Exiles private server.

Step 1: Requirements
Before you start, there are a few things you need to have in place:

  • A dedicated machine or a virtual private server (VPS) with enough resources to handle the game
  • The Conan Exiles Dedicated Server tool, which can be downloaded from the Steam library
  • A stable internet connection with port forwarding enabled on your router

Step 2: Installing the Conan Exiles Dedicated Server Tool
Once you have all the requirements ready, follow these steps to install the dedicated server tool:

  1. Launch Steam and go to your library
  2. In your library, click on “Tools” in the top menu bar
  3. Search for “Conan Exiles Dedicated Server” and click on it
  4. Click on “Install” to begin downloading and installing the tool

Step 3: Configuring Your Server Settings
After installing the dedicated server tool, it’s time to configure your server settings. Here’s how:

  1. Navigate to the installation directory of the Conan Exiles Dedicated Server tool.

    By default, it is located at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles Dedicated Server

  2. Edit the file named “ServerSettings.ini” using a text editor of your choice
  3. Inside the file, you’ll find various settings that can be tweaked to your preference. For example, you can change the server name, password, player limit, and more
  4. Save the changes and close the file

Step 4: Port Forwarding
To allow players to connect to your private server, you need to configure port forwarding on your router. Here’s how:

  1. Access your router’s configuration page by entering its IP address in a web browser. The default IP address is often printed on the router itself
  2. Navigate to the port forwarding section of your router’s settings
  3. Add a new rule for TCP and UDP protocols with the following details:
    • External Port: The port number that players will use to connect (default is 7777)
    • Internal Port: The same port number as the external port (7777)
    • Internal IP Address: The IP address of the machine running the dedicated server tool
  4. Save the changes and restart your router for them to take effect

Step 5: Starting Your Private Server
With all the settings in place, it’s time to start your Conan Exiles private server:

  1. Navigate back to the installation directory of the Conan Exiles Dedicated Server tool
  2. Double-click on “ConanSandboxServer.exe” to launch the server tool

Congratulations! Your private server is now up and running. Players can connect by searching for your server’s name in-game or by directly entering its IP address.

Additional Tips:
– To make your server stand out, consider customizing it further by adding mods. You can find mods on the official Conan Exiles Steam Workshop.

– Regularly backup your server data to prevent any loss in case of hardware failures or other issues. – Engage with your players and create a thriving community by setting up a Discord server or a forum where they can connect and communicate.

Now that you have learned how to set up a Conan Exiles private server, gather your friends, and embark on epic adventures together in the harsh world of Conan!
