Start a rust server?

Where or How can I find the files, or how to run a Rust server. Any help would be appreciated.

There is a directory which is password protected and only accessible as a “registered” gameserver hoster…

how do i become a “registered” gameserver hoster…

The server files have not been released for public dedicated servers. If you see a download link for the server files show up here and it’s not an official release from the devs, it’s a warez copy and possibly virused. Do not ask for these files, it’s a very bad idea.

If you want to run a server to play on, buy one from one of the various Rust server hosting providers.

If you want to become a hosting provider to others and are prepared to run a small business, read the stickies for how to contact Facepunch.
