How to use the Rust Wipe Tool

Using the Rust Wipe Tool

First thing you will want to do is head to the Apollo Panel and click on the Rust Wipe Tab.

Once you click on the Rust Wipe Tab you will be able to create scheduled wipes or wipe the server at that time.

First thing you will want to do if you are setting up scheduled wipes is make sure that you set the correct Timezone.

Once that's done, you can set the Server Name and Description. You can set the server name like this Sparked Host|Last Wiped %MONTH%/%DAY% and it will show the date you last wiped your server. Here is an example.

You can then set the new Map Size, Map Seed and Custom Map URL. If you want to choose a Random seed tick the box and set the new Map Size or insert the Custom Map Link.

Next you will be looking at a Files box. You will want to click Select Files. You will want to navigate to /server/rust and select all the map/player files.

Once you select those two files you have two options left. Wipe Blueprints and Schedule Wipe and then if you are not scheduling the wipe you can click wipe now and your server will be wiped.

If you are scheduling a wipe some more options will pop up. You need to set a Schedule time and if you want any specific commands ran before the server is wiped.

You can also select Repeat Wipe and the wipe will be repeated.

Once the Scheduled Wipes are created you can see them like this.
