How to Access Console Commands in Project Zomboid

As a server host, you should have multiple ways to access the admin command panel. For starters, your hosting service may offer a control panel that allows direct control of the entire server from your web browser. Here, you can insert commands via the “Console” selection.

But the most efficient way is to input console commands via the in-game chat. For that, press ‘T’ to access the server chat, then enter your command. You will need admin control to activate said commands in multiplayer, however.

Even with console commands, you want the best possible chance at surviving the zombie apocalypse, so learn how to board up windows in Project Zomboid!
