Using ARKRemote


ARKRemote is a great tool which allows you to manage your server's configuration files through a
desktop-based GUI, as well as install mods directly onto your server without having to upload the files
manually.

Wombat Servers now supports ARKRemote by default on new servers from the 10th of June 2016. For
orders prior to this date, ARKRemote must be manually activated by our team - please email
support@wombatservers.com with your GamePanel username for more details.

Preparing the server
1. Login to the GamePanel and navigate to your server's homepage.
2. Click on the Mod Manager icon.
NOTE: if you signed up prior to 10 June 2016, please contact our support team as described
above before proceeding to Step 3.

Using ARKLauncher
Config management
From ARKLauncher you can configure your server's settings. Core settings are displayed on the Server
tab, while gameplay settings are found on the "Rules & Gameplay" tab.
After making changes, click the "WRITE TO SERVER" button in the bottom right corner to save the files to
your server.
Please note that the following cannot be changed using ARKLauncher:
Your server's IP address
Your server's port(s)
Your commandlines
Your slot limit

Installing mods
Navigate to the Mods tab to search and install mods. Note that this page often takes some time to load -
this is normal.
1. Select a mod you would like to install and click "ADD".

4. The mod will then be downloaded to the server. You can monitor progress in the bottom pane.
5. Once complete, follow this guide to configure your commandline.

Common issues
It says my control port is 0.

This means that a port has not been allocated to your server. This can occur if you purchased your server
prior to 10 June 2016. Please contact support@wombatservers.com to have one assigned.
