How To Set Up Your Private Server Guide – Conan Exiles


Conan Exiles is now available on Steam as an Early Access game. It has just 100 public servers right now, but you have a chance to create your own as a private place where you can spend your time with only those you want to play with. It’s a nice feature, even though it requires a little preparation to properly work.

Conan Exiles - Server Guide

Developers have shared all the tips and steps you need to follow in order to make it. Have a look below:

Step 1: Get SteamCMD

Step 2:

Extract the contents of the to some folder of your choosing.

Step 3:

Open a terminal window on the folder you chose.

Step 4:

Create a different folder to install the server into. (for example C:\Exiles)

Step 5: To get the server, run these commands:

  • login anonymous
  • force_install_dir C:\YOURFOLDERNAMEHERE
  • app_update 443030
  • quit
  • (On the first run, and occasionally, SteamCMD will patch itself before running)

Step 6: Running the server:

  • Please make sure you do not have a steam client running. If you do, you will see some error
  • message boxes regarding steam DLLs (which you can ignore).

From C:\Exiles, run:ConanSandboxServer.exe

By default it will listen on UDP ports 27015 and 7777. You might need to add an exception in

your firewall to get the server to show up in the Steam server browser.

You can then use the following comand line parameters, for example:

  • ConanSandboxServer.exe -log -MaxPlayers=16

Other parameters you might need for servers include:

  • -log
  • MaxPlayers=70
  • ServerName=ConanExilesServer
  • MULTIHOME=aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd (select network interface by ip)
  • QueryPort=27015 (steam queryport)
