Server Commands

Console commands can be executed either using an RCon tool, directly from the server console interface, a server configuration file, the server command line, or (if a resource is allowed by the ACL) the ExecuteCommand function.

Adding a custom RCon command can be done using the RegisterCommand function on the server, or the (legacy) rconCommand event.

Resource commands

start [resourceName]

Starts the resource specified in the argument, if it was stopped. It is also possible to specify a category name, such as start [cars].


start lambda-menu
start [cars]

stop [resourceName]

Stops the resource specified in the argument, if it was started. As with start, one can also specify a category name.


stop mymode

ensure [resourceName]

Restarts the resource specified in the argument, if it was started. If it wasn't, starts the resource specified in the argument.

As with start and stop, one can also specify a category name.


ensure my-testing-resource

restart [resourceName]

Restarts the resource specified in the argument, if it was started. Also supports category names.


restart lambda-menu


Rescans the resources folder and loads all resource manifests in them, also making new resources available to start using start.



Global commands

exec [filename]

Runs the commands specified in the filename, relative to the server data directory, or any resource name specified with @.

Commonly seen as FXServer.exe +exec server.cfg.


exec server_nested.cfg
exec @vMenu/config/permissions.cfg


Exits the server, sending a default quit message to all connected players.

quit [reason]

Exits the server, also sending the specified reason to all connected players.


quit "Restarting - will be back soon!"

Management commands


Shows a list of players with their primary identifier, server ID, name, endpoint, and ping.



clientkick [id] [reason]

Kicks the client with the specified server ID (as seen in status) from the server, for the stated reason.


clientkick 43 You're a superstitious idiot!

say [message]

Sends a message in the chat as console.


say Hi, everybody!


Opens or closes the server debug GUI.

Configuration variables

gamename [game]

Defines the game to run the server for.


FXServer.exe +set gamename rdr3

Supported games

NameMarketing name
gta4LibertyM for GTA:NY
gta5FiveM for GTA:Five
rdr3RedM for RDR3

onesync [on/off/legacy]

Defines which mode of state awareness to use.

  • Off: No state awareness at all, clients will use the standard GTA/RAGE P2P networking model, and the server will only function as a relay.
  • On: Full state awareness and server-determined entity routing.
  • Legacy: Compatibility mode for scripts that expect all players to exist on each client. Not recommended due to performance issues and graphical glitches.

sv_enforceGameBuild [build]

Selects a game build for clients to use. This can only be specified at startup, and can not be changed at runtime.


sv_enforceGameBuild h4
sv_enforceGameBuild mptuner
sv_enforceGameBuild 1355

Every build includes all content and changes from the builds before.

sv_maxClients [newValue]

A variable that specifies the maximum amount of clients that the server can normally have, as an integer from 1 to 2048.

Values starting at 32 will require onesync to be set to on or legacy, and values above 64 will require onesync to be set to on.

sv_endpointPrivacy [newValue]

A boolean variable that, if true, hides player IP addresses from public reports output by the server.

sets sv_projectName "project name"

A string variable containing the name of your 'project', which would for example be the server's community. This should be a name, not a list, nor should it contain tags.

Any non-compliant name will be cut off in the server list.


sets sv_projectName "Citizen Gaming"

# or if you are using a premium key, it can contain one color
sets sv_projectName "^6Citizen Gaming"

sets sv_projectDesc "project description"

A string variable containing the description of your project. This should be written as a sentence.


sets sv_projectDesc "Your favorite drug deal simulation community!"

sv_hostname [newValue]

A string variable that contains the server-specific host name. In addition to this, you may want to set sv_projectName and sv_projectDesc.

sv_master1 [newValue]

A string variable that can be used to set the server as "private", making it not possible to join by using the server browser UI (the server connect button will be disabled). In the past, this specific string variable dictated where heartbeats were sent and servers weren't listed if the address didn't point to FiveM's ingress address, this is no longer the case, the server will always post to the default server ingress on startup. In other words, this string variable cannot be used to de-list a server from the master list.


sv_master1 ""

sv_authMaxVariance [newValue]

Variance is how likely the user's id will change for a given provider (i.e. 'steam', 'ip', or 'license').

A console variable as an integer from 1-5 (default 5); from least to most likely to change.

sv_authMinTrust [newValue]

Trust is how unlikely it is for the user's identity to be spoofed by a malicious client.

A console variable as an integer from 1-5 (default 1); from least to most trustworthy (5 being a method such as external three-way authentication).

sv_requestParanoia [newValue]

This helps counter proxy-based HTTP floods. Levels:

  • 0: Off. Default behavior.
  • 1: Block any IPs sending requests containing a 'Via' header.
  • 2: Block any IPs sending requests containing a 'Upgrade-Insecure-Requests' header. This includes all browser-based attempts at requesting .json endpoints, so use with care.
  • 3: Also close the socket the requests have been submitted on.

If set to level 2 greater, all requests made to info.json, dynamic.json and players.json related endpoints will return "Nope."

A console variable as an integer from 0-3 (default 0);

sv_filterRequestControl [mode]

A console variable used to block REQUEST_CONTROL_EVENT routing based on a configurable policy.
Supported modes for this variable are as follows:

  • -1: Default, equivalent to 2 at this time, but will also warn in console.
  • 0: Off. Also disables the routing bucket/entity lockdown-based policy.
  • 1: Blocks control requests to entities controlled by players (currently, occupied vehicles only) that have existed for more than sv_filterRequestControlSettleTimer milliseconds (default 30000) - hereafter referred to as 'settled'.
  • 2: Blocks control requests to all entities controlled by players.
  • 3: Blocks control requests to all entities controlled by players, and any 'settled' non-player entities.
  • 4: Does not route REQUEST_CONTROL_EVENT whatsoever.

In addition, any mode but 'off' will have some additional checks as well:

  • Control request events can't be routed across routing buckets.
  • Control request events will always be blocked if the sender is in 'strict' entity lockdown mode, either by the global mode setting, or their routing bucket being set to such.


The con_channelFilters command will list any active channel filters set to the end user.

A channel is the prefix of a console message, for example: citizen-server-impl, this channel will be displayed in brackets in the console followed by a message, i.e.

[citizen-server-impl] Found 44 resources.

Filters can be used to alter console output behavior.

Different actions exist to alter this behavior:

noprintWill stop anything from being printed at a trace listener level.
dropWill cause the output to be dropped at Printfv, so it won't reach any print listeners.
devonlyWill apply drop action behavior and will only drop the output if the developer command is set to false.

Example output:

[cmd] forward:*/*: noprint

con_addChannelFilter [filter] [action]

The con_addChannelFilter command will add a channel filter which can be used to filter console channel output.

Regex can be used for channel filters, this can be set through the filter command parameter.

Available actions are explained up above (con_channelFilters command).

The example down below would stop any channel output coming from script names matching the given pattern.

So the following wouldn't show on the console:

[script:gamemodePrefix-turfs]: Hello world!
[script:gamemodePrefix-derby]: This is a test.

Example: con_addChannelFilter script:gamemodePrefix-* noprint

con_removeChannelFilter [filter] [action]

The con_removeChannelFilter command can be used to remove a channel filter, thus removing any previously applied actions (those applied via con_addChannelFilter).

You can use con_channelFilters to check for any active filters.

Example: con_removeChannelFilter script:gamemodePrefix-* noprint

sv_filterRequestControlSettleTimer [time]

A console variable (default 30000 milliseconds) that allows you to set after how long (based on entity creation time in milliseconds) an entity should be blocked from a REQUEST_CONTROL_EVENT. This will only apply to filter request control modes 1 and 3, which are detailed under sv_filterRequestControl in this page.

sv_pureLevel [level]

A console variable used to prevent users from using modified client files. There currently are two pure mode levels (1 and 2), an explanation for these levels can be found below:

  • 1: Will block all modified client files except audio files and known graphics mods.
  • 2: Will block all modified client files.

If modified files are installed in the FiveM folder, they will be ignored - if users however modified base game files, they will receive an error message telling them what file is modified.

sv_enableNetworkedSounds [true|false]

A boolean console variable that can be used to prevent users from routing NETWORK_PLAY_SOUND_EVENT through the server, which is commonly used by malicious actors.

This is set to true by default (allow routing)

sv_enableNetworkedPhoneExplosions [true|false]

A boolean console variable introduced in server version 6831, that is disabled (set to false) by default.

Enabling it (by setting it to true), will allow users to route REQUEST_PHONE_EXPLOSION_EVENT through the server. The main drawback behind enabling this, is that it can also be used by malicious actors.

load_server_icon [fileName.png]

A console command which loads a specfied icon and sets it as the server icon. The icon needs to be a 96x96 PNG file.


load_server_icon "my-server.png"

rcon_password [password]

Sets the RCon password. This being unset means RCon is disabled.

steam_webApiKey [key]

Sets a Steam Web API key, which is required to allow for Steam identifiers to be returned by the server.

Access control commands

add_ace [principal] [object] [allow|deny]

Adds an access control entry to the server's access control list.


add_ace group.admin command.potato allow
add_ace identifier.steam:110000112345678 deny

add_principal [child_principal] [parent_principal]

Sets a principal to inherit from another principal.


# makes identifier.steam:110000112345678 inherit from group.admin
add_principal identifier.steam:110000112345678 group.admin

remove_ace [principal] [object] [allow|deny]

Removes a specified ACE from the server's access control list.


remove_ace identifier.steam:110000112345678 deny

remove_principal [child_principal] [parent_principal]

Removes a specified principal inheritance entry.


remove_principal identifier.steam:110000112345678 group.admin

test_ace [principal] [object]

Tests if a principal is allowed or denied access to a given object.

Example: test_ace group.admin command.adminstuff
