How To Install Api and Plugins to a ArkServer

1. download API v3.55

2. Unzip the API file

3. Copy all that's in the Unzipped API folder to the Shootergame/Binaries/x64

4. Now the API Framework is added to the server. Open the plugin folder Binaries/x64/API/Plugins

5. Download your Plugins at https://gameservershub.com/forums/resources/categories/ark-survival-evolved.2/

6. Unzip your plugins

7. Copy all that you unzipped including plugins folder to Shootergame/Binaries/x64/Api/Plugins

8. Start server and make sure to keep a eye on the Log console to make sure your plugin loaded.

9. If the plugins loaded then you can configure your plugin and reload it while server is going with the desired rcon command.
