Server Help Cannot make self admin from starbound.config file

    Hi peeps,

    I've set up Starbound Server on my Windows server 2019.

    I cannot make myself admin and have tried a few things from a few different forums/sources.

    Editing the starbound.config file in the giraffe_storage by adding "ServerUsers" just result in the game saying "Player1" does not exist.

    I've also tried editing the same file in the storage folder, with no luck.

    I've also tried adding
    "adminPasswords" : [ "password" ], as this was suggested on reddit, but that doesn't work either.

    Can anyone throw me a bone to suggest what I could try next?

    Thanks in advance.

    OK, after lots of messing around, I've fixed it so I'm just replying to this to maybe ease someone else's pain in the future.

    The files that need editing are in the storage folder, not giraffe_storage.

    You need to add the "ServerUsers" in BOTH the starbound.config and starbound_server.config files.

    I hope this helps the next poor soul that is banging his head against a wall.
