TShock Terraria requires you have access to our web console to grant superadmin rights your users. First, boot up a copy of Terraria, as well as navigating to your GameServerKing's Game Server management panel. From there click "Game Services." If you have multiple servers with us, select the TShock Terraria server you wish to gain superadmin rights on. Once you've selected your service click on "Web Console." 

Once within the Web Console, your server will say:

Start up your Terraria client and log in to your server. If you don't know how to log into your server, you can view our knowledge base guide: How to join online multiplayer games by IP. Once online, press ENTER or RETURN to open your ingame console. Type "/auth" followed by your 7 digit authentication code. Mine was: /auth 7279410.

Next, it will prompt you to create a password using your superadmin character. Follow the instructions prompted to you. My character's name is "random_character" Any spaces will need to be represented by an underscore "_" to create your superadmin account. I typed in: /user add random_character securepass superadmin to make my character a superadmin account.

After you create your superadmin account under your name, type /login <username> <password> and then type /auth <authcode> again. For my example, I typed /login random_character securepass. Then, after I was logged in I typed /auth 72794101. The console then prompted me with this message.

Now that my superadmin account is set up and complete, I'm ready to mod! Follow our guide located here to learn how to install mods and plugins: How to install TShock Plugins.
