Default Decay Rate on Rust?

I am trying to make my decay rate slower on my server, and i went from 300 decay to 50, now my small stashes are gone and everything.

I am not sure what the default decay rate it but i want it back so everyones houses dont fall apart


To my understanding, the number represents amount of time it takes to decay, so i think going UP increases decay time. i dont own a server to test it though, so someone who actually knows will have to verify

I think you wanted to increase the number if you wanted the decay rate to be longer. Bigger numbers typically mean increases in time. I have no experience with this but that would be my first guess.
