How to change the name and description of a Project Zomboid Server


Changing the name and description of a Project Zomboid server can help differentiate the server from others offering similar gameplay. A clear and defining name and description can give potential players a better idea of what to expect on the server and entice them to join. Updating the name and description can also signal to current players that the server is active and evolving, keeping them engaged and interested in continuing to play on the server.

Note To show these changes publicly, the server must be set to public=true in the .ini file.
