Method 1. Install via uMod Plugin Installer (Simple):

Log in to your Game Control Panel

Click the [Install uMod Plugins] button in the Navigation Bar.

In the search bar enter "whitelist" and click search.

Install the Whitelist plugin as seen in the image below.

Restart your server. Once the server is started, the plugin should be enabled.

To allow people to connect find the person's Steam ID: You can find their steam ID From this website: steamid.io

When in-game, press F1 and use the following command: oxide.grant user 00000000000 whitelist.allow (Replace "00000000000" with the Steam ID you got in the previous step) Note: Server Owners/Admins do not require permission to join.
