About Rust Server Installation & Backup Script
This script will help you install and manage your local dedicated Rust server. Rust is a video game created by Facepunch Studios. This script and its author have no claim or rights to any content that Facepunch or Valve owns, operates or disseminates to the public.
Installation & Walkthrough
You can find a tutorial video on the installation process here on youtube!
Download the current release by clicking on the link below, or by downloading direct from CodeFling. I will push minor updates github every so often and major updates to CodeFling.
Unzip to a desired location on your hard drive.
Run the RustyServerInstaller.bat file.
Once your Rust server is installed, make sure to select OPTION 1 when it asks you to load a procedural map or a custom map. You want to run the procedural map first!
Running Your Rust Server
You can edit the startup parameters of your rust server by editing the JSON files in the root directory. If you want to use a custom map, be sure that the levelurl value is set to the absolute path including drive letter to your map file if its on your local machine. Relative paths will not work.
Updating, Backing Up, & Reinstallation of Files
You can choose to backup, reinstall, update or wipe files from your server using the main menu. However, to ensure that things do not break, STOP or QUIT your server first. This will ensure that no rollbacks, or corrupted files will be in your server.
