# Quick Start Guide
# Video tutorial
This video tutorial will show you the basics of adding a server.
# Adding your server to CSMM
# Set up web API credentials
The easiest way to do this is with commands through the console. You can connect to your server console via telnet, webpanel or ingame.
- Check if you have any set up already:
- Add a new token
webtokens add <name> <token> 0
Please note that the token needs to be at least 10 characters long. Don’t forget the 0 at the end! It’s important CSMM has privilege 0 to ensure all functions can properly work.
These credentials are sensitive! You should treat these as a password. (Keep it secret, no obvious names/tokens). It's advised to use a combination of numbers, letters, lowercase and uppercase aswell as symbols
# Finding the port for Allocs web API
Finding you web API port can be challenging, especially if you are renting your server. There are 2 easy methods to find the port though
Via serverconfig.xml The port is defined as ControlPanelPort +2. Find that value and in your browser go to http://<yourserverip>:<value>. If you see the Allocs webmap, you've found the correct port! It's possible that this method is not accurate if you are renting your server from a game hosting company. The port in your serverconfig.xml is not always correct!
Via logs In the output log of your server, find a line like this
2018-09-15T01:27:41 61.339 INF Started Webserver on 8090.There's your port value!
Finally, you can use the webtokens you created and the port you've found to add your server to CSMM. If done correctly, CSMM should now have access to your server, and be monitoring for changes and other events.
