Rust Experimental (Release) Dedicated Server
Decided to run a Rust Dedicated Server? The installation and set-up for the Rust Dedicated Server is very easy and straightforward. This guide is for the installation of a server on a Windows PC. For Linux, please check out our How to host a Rust server in Linux guide. The Rust server can be taxing on your host but maybe not as much as you would think. As a baseline a 3 square km default gen size map freshly generated will run at close to 2 gigabytes of ram. So I would suggest having at least 7 gigs allocated per server. SteamCMD is the command-line console used to install the Steam related files and the mechanism by which the Rust server is installed and updated.
There are many reasons for wanting to host your own RUST server. Note: Some servers will require you to use a Steam account. Only one Steam user account can be logged in at any time. If you wanted to play at the same time, this will conflict. If you have any troubles getting the server downloaded and installed or noticed any errors, please leave a comment below or reach out to us on our discord. Now that you have a running dedicated RUST server, you may wish to mod your server in order to change up the gameplay from the vanilla experience. Whether or not you choose to mod your server, you will frequently need to update your RUST server , or else players may not be able to join.
