Creating a Conan Exile game server is an easy process that can be done from either a dedicated server or your home computer.

Option #1: Renting a Conan Exiles server (see example control panel below!)

Option #2: Creating a Conan Exiles Server From Your Home Computer or Dedicated Server

Server Requirements

Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Server 2008, Server 2012 & 64-Bit

Quad Core processor (requires up to 2 full cores)

4GB memory (currently uses around 4GB memory for 100 players filled)

20GB disk space (install folder)


Step 1: Fetching Game Server files from SteamCMD

The best method to get game server dedicated hosting files is via SteamCMD.

  1. Create a folder where you wish to store your Conan Exiles game server hosting files
  2. Inside of the folder, place the newly downloading SteamCMD.exe file
  3. Create a batch file named SteamCMD.bat
  4. Place the following code in this batch file:
    @echo off
    start "" steamcmd.exe +login anonymous +force_install_dir "C:\Some\Path\Where\You\Want\Game\Server\Files\To\Go" +app_update 443030 validate +quit
  5. Right-click SteamCMD.bat and Run as Administrator
  6. Your game server files should be completely downloaded by now

Step 1 (alternate method): Locating Game Server Files on Hard Drive

You can host Conan Exiles directly from the game itself. If you want to change any settings, locate your common folder:

  1. Right-click Conan Exiles from Steam, select Properties
  2. Click Local Files tab
  3. Click 'Browse Local Files button

Step 2: Setting up a Conan Exiles Dedicated Server

  1. Create a batch file named ConanExiles.bat in your newly created SteamCMD folder (Step 1) or your Steam common folder (Step 1: (alternate method)).
  2. Place the following code in this batch file:
    start "C:\conanserver\ConanSandbox\Binaries\Win64\ConanSandboxServer.exe" "ConanSandbox?Multihome=X.X.X.X?GameServerPort=27015?GameServerQueryPort=27016?ServerName=YOURSERVERNAME?MaxPlayers=20?listen?AdminPassword=YOURADMINPASSWORD" -nosteamclient -game -server -log
  3. More information will be coming on Jan 31 as server files are released

Step 3: Port Forwarding

Add an incoming rule to your Windows Firewall to allow UDP port 27015 as well as 27016 (or whichever port you are using).

You may additionally need to add a forwarding rule to your network router. You can use PortForward.com to read how to do this.

HOW TO JOIN YOUR SERVER

STEP 1: Update your server to the newest Conan version, then click the green update button at the bottom of the panel. * If you are not a Survival Servers customer ask your game server host about this.
