Rust Server(s) setup in a standard way on a Windows dedicated server.
Administrator privileges on said Dedicated server.

How to Setup
- Enter your server's service name
- Replace the example paths with the plugin and map file paths you want to be deleted on wipe
*.dbwill delete all
.dbfiles in the folder
Open config.json in Notepad++
Replace the example server config path with your own
Replace the example seed / txt file with the path of your own
levels.txtfile (the name of the file does not matter)
Note: Make sure to use double
\\just like in the example provided or it will not work!
Optional: Change the value of
server.levelurlif you wish to change the server levelurl each wipe.
Choosing your "Replacement" value
This can be anything that you wish for the code to look for, but it is necessary that the seed or levelurl is the last thing on the line and it is separated by a space.
For example, if you wanted to change something where the line started with
you can change the replacement property to match this.
For most standard setups and usages, the default of
will be sufficient.

Populate your seeds.txt file
If you're using levelurls, the same will apply just with different values
seeds.txt(you may have called it something else) in Notepad++
- Go to https://just-wiped.net/search-rust-maps and search for some seeds using your map size.
- Put each seed or levelurl on a new line
- Save the file
Perform a Dry-Run
Whilst your server is online with no pop, manually run the
to ensure that it is working as expected. If not, please go through all of the steps again and make sure you read everything! It is very common to forget double backslashes in the config file, or to have a typo in one of your file paths.
This is a general method to setup your auto wipes, each setup will be different so you must ensure you adapt and change ALL file paths to match your setup and desires.
I cannot aid you in making your server into a service, though it is highly recommended for all servers to do so as it will make your setup safer and more relaible. There are numerous tutorials available on YouTube if you desire to do so.
