🍋Setting up your server

I just got my server, how do I connect and what should I do first?

First off, welcome to the Zesty Fam! We are glad to have you here with us. Second, don't be afraid to ask for help! We're always available to help clients. If you need a role in our discord, please open up a ticket.

Step 1 / Connecting to the server

You may find your server login info via the Zesty dashboard.

Step 2 / Securing your server

We make this as seamless as possible using our Zesty Tool: https://zestytools.zesty.group/tools/zestytool Download the tool onto your server after you connect to it. Do NOT change the port on your local machine. The reason we ask people to change their RDP port is to secure the server as much as they can. Even if the password is super secure, we want you to feel as safe as you can possibly be.
