Having a rule list for your Rust server is an important way to prevent chaos from erupting. It is also important to have a way to enforce those rules. Rust has a very easy to use ban/unban system for players.

How to ban a player

There are two ways to ban players on rust, the first one is by using their name, the second is by using their SteamId. It is often recommended to use their SteamId as it allows you to ban them offline, and allows you to ban users with weird names. This tutorial will teach you both ways.

Banning using username

Open your server's "Console" page in the PebbleHost Panel
Type ban "Username" "Reason"


Banning using SteamId

Open your server's "Console" page in the PebbleHost Panel
Type banid "SteamId" "Reason" (You can find SteamIds by going to steamid.io and entering the name - make sure you use the SteamID64).


How to check your banlist

Open your server's "Console" page in the PebbleHost Panel
Type the banlistex command
This will display all banned users, their SteamIds, and the reason they were banned.


How to unban Rust users

Open your server's "Console" page in the PebbleHost Panel
Type unban "SteamId"
