7 Days to Die: Dedicated server in the data center or co-op play?

“7 Days to Die” has a built-in feature for hosting multiplayer adventures over the Internet. These game sessions, which can be private or public, run directly on your device. This is advantageous as you don’t have to buy or rent additional hardware. However, this option is only recommended if you want to play the game with a group of people. Also, it is worth noting that the server only runs when you are running the session. As soon as you shut down your device or quit 7 Days to Die, the server will be offline for all players.

Players who are playing with four players or more should definitely consider the “7 Days to Die” dedicated server software and the dedicated hardware. This will enable you to offer a long term and stable gaming experience to users who have connected to the server. Another option is to rent the hardware from a provider, which means you won’t have to worry about security measures and maintenance. You’ll also benefit from the provider’s excellent Internet connection, which is significantly stronger than connections available in private households.

 Tip

There is great freedom and resources available when renting hardware for a “7 Days to Die” server from a hosting provider. For example, you can set up a Mumble server for high-quality communication in “7 Days to Die”. It is also possible to create additional gaming servers such as the Valheim server.

What are the system requirements for a 7 Days to Die server?

There is no official information from the developers regarding the hardware requirements for hosting the “7 Days to Die” dedicated server software. Therefore, the values provided below are based on empirical values. The requirements are more or less the same as other multiplayer games. The CPU and RAM should be planned around the size of game world and the number of players. The same should be considered when using different mods.

The following hardware is recommended starting out:

  • Processor (CPU): AMD or Intel (2 cores) from 2.4 gigahertz for 1-4 players; 3 gigahertz for 5-16 players
  • RAM: 3-4 gigabytes for 2-4 players; 8 gigabytes for 5-16 players
  • Hard disk space: 12 gigabytes; additional space for saving games and installed mods

As well as the computing power, resources for the respective operating system (Linux or Windows) must also be taken into consideration for the “7 Days to Die” server application. For examplethe following additional power would be required for the 2019Windows server:

  • 1.4 GHz processor (64-bit)
  • 512 MB or 2 GB RAM (without or with graphical user interface respectively)
  • 32 or 36 GB hard disk space (without or with graphical user interface respectively)

Which option does IONOS offer for the “7 Days to Die” server?

7 Days To Die Dedicated Server Setup

7 Days to Die: Create a dedicated server – Step-by-step tutorial

It’s simple to put your plans into action for a “7 Days to Die” server once you have the right hardware. All you need is a suitable operating system. There is a large choice available, from the classic Linux and Windows server systems such as Ubuntu, Debian, or Windows Server, to the Steam command line client, SteamCMD.

We will show you the setup process in the following tutorial with examples from IONOS customers (vServer, Cloud Server, Dedicated Server). Windows Server 2019 is the operating system used.

Step 1: Establish remote connection to the server

The first step is to establish a remote connection toyour rented server. As a IONOS customer, you can conveniently set this up via the Cloud Panel, which is the web-based customer center. Simply log in on the login page with your IONOS login data and proceed as follows:

  1. Go to the “Server & Cloud” section.
  2. Select the server hardware you have rented for the “7 Days to Die” server.
  3. Click into the server and go to the overview of the login data.
  4. Press Download in the Remote Desktop connection section.

Run the file called “Remote Desktop connection” and click “Connect” in the following section. Enter the login data for your server. You will also find your login data in Features (User and Initial Password) in case you would like to change it.

 Note

You must classify the server’s security certificate as trustworthy when establishing the connection for the first time. You can establish the remote connection afterwards!

Step 2: Install SteamCMD

You can get the “7 Days to Die” dedicated server application from SteamCMD. This tool is a command line version of the Steam client which allows you to connect with the server’s game platform servers quickly. You can download the installation package (in this case for Windows) using this download link.

 Tip

We go into detail about how to install SteamCMD on both Windows and Linux in other sections of the Digital Guide.

Unzip the ZIP file in a folder of your choice (e.g. under C:\SteamCMD) and start the installation bydouble-clicking on steamcmd.exe.Windows will automatically start the command prompt and download all the required SteamCMD files. You should see the input line “steam>” after installation.

Step 3: Install the “7 Days to Die” dedicated server

You can then connect to the Steam servers to download the dedicated server application with the Steam input line. First, you have to log in. Logging in as an anonymous user is sufficient for “7 Days to Die”:

login anonymous

Create the installation folder for the server in the next step:

force_install_dir C:\7daystodie-ds\

Finally, download the application with the following command:

app_update 294420 validate

Exit the command line application with the “quit” command once the download and installation are complete.

 Tip

The number “294420” is the app ID of the “7 Days to Die” server application on the Steam network. You can update the server files at any time using “app_update 294420”.

Step 4: Enable server ports

You also have to enable the correct ports in firewall settings. This allows your server to exchange data with the Steam network and be available over the Internet. In the case of 7 Days to Die, these are TCP/UDP port 26900 and UDP ports 2690126902 and 26903.

IONOS customers can customize the firewall policies of their leased server in the Cloud Panel which was shown in Step 1:

  1. Log in to the IONOS Cloud Panel.
  2. Go to the “Server & Cloud” section.
  3. Click “Network” and “Firewall Policies” in the left side menu.
  4. Enter the rules for the desired ports under “Incoming”.
  5. Save new rules by clicking on “Add rule”.

 Note

Enabling ports takes some time. You can check the current status of the configuration in the top section of the firewall settings in the IONOS Cloud Panel. In some cases, it may be necessary to restart the server after configuration.

7 Days To Die Dedicated Server Performance

Dedicated server where time doesn’t move forward without people???
After having joined a few servers that people had posted they were looking for more players to be on, and then finding the servers 50-100+ days in, I started thinking.

Is it possible to have a dedicated server where time doesn’t move forward unless someone is logged in on the server?

I know this might be impossible, and I tried doing a search for it, just didn’t know how to search for it. I think it would be huge for people who sleep and work and don’t want to miss a whole game week because they did so. One 24 hour real world period is at the least, 12 game days. Just spending 8 hours at work and another 8 hours between sleeping and commuting and you’ve already gone by a game week. So having a dedicated server for yourself and friends where time only moves forward if one of you, (or someone else), is on the server, you won’t find yourself at week 20 horde night with just a stone axe, wooden club, and wood bow. Also, I could be horribly wrong about how game difficulty is. I think, (because I’ve never actually looked it up), that the difficulty is based on your level and zombie kill plus the day in game. If it’s only based on a character’s level and zombie kills, (which is starting to make more sense as I’m typing this), then a server that stops time if no one is logged on would mostly only make it so you don’t miss quite so many blood moons. Heck, it just might be that people use time still flowing even when they aren’t logged in to skip past blood moons without having to fight off zombies. I don’t know. I think I’m sounding pretty dumb the more I type this, so just going to stop.

On an empty server time stops. If one single person is on, time moves on. How else should it work? If you want to have control of time and space and play with others, you need your own server and make sure noone connects while you’re away. or host a game for you and your friends directly, if your machine can handle it.

Well, it would seem that dedicated servers don’t work like this. The other night, I logged onto a server. I was the only one there. Working backwards from the time it was to the time the guy posted he was starting a new server, someone would have had to have been on the server up until the point I logged on. While it’s not impossible, someone having been on the server for over 40 hours was not likely. A few hours later, I went back. And unless someone logged on when I logged off and then logged off just before I got back on, time moves forward on a dedicated server regardless of our interaction with it.

Hmm, maybe there’s an option for that in the server config files, but if so, i think it’s not very common and wouldn’t make any sense imo. Servers that run for weeks or months would be in the thousands of days even though nobody ‘s on depending on day length. But i can be wrong. Maybe it’s best to take this discussion over to the server section i f you want some smart people to answer this 😉

I know I’m not smart in this area. For all I know, both of us could be right and wrong at the same time. And I thought the server section was more for, “Hey, come join my server cause I’m bored of playing with myself.”

All servers stop moving forward if no one is on them. Its not configuirable in any way. So either someone was logged on, or server owner modified time, day legnth, etc. But time did not tick down with no one on.

Does this include dedicated servers that are hosted by whatever site someone rents it from?

ALL servers, both dedicated and local. The game will not progress if no one is on.

Then I shall just chalk up my experience the other day to just some more weird ♥♥♥♥ that’s been happening to me with this game that like no one else has ever had happen to them.

Maybe the psychiatrist wasn’t lying when he told me I was special….

Most likely the guy turned on the server earlier then he said or he changed how fast the gametime moved. It’s physically impossible for the server time to progress without people on it.
