Set Your Cluster Token

To start your Don't Starve Together server, you will need to generate a token and give it to the server. To get this token, you will need to have a Klei account and to be logged in.

Create a Server

  1. Create a Don't Starve server.
  2. Start your server for about 2 minutes so it creates the necessary folders.
  3. Stop your server.

Create Your Cluster Token

  1. Go here:
  2. At the KLEI website, fill in Cluster Name with whatever you want then click on ADD NEW SERVER
  3. Also at the KLEI website, click on Configure Server and fill in the blanks.

Upload Your Cluster Token

  1. Unzip the file you downloaded. There should now be a folder called MyDediServer. Inside that folder are some folders and files.
  2. Upload the cluster_token.txt and cluster.ini* files using SFTP to the following folder on your server: /dont-starve-together/.klei/DoNotStarveTogether/Cluster_1/


To see hidden files and folders, such as ".klei" for Don't Starve, Click on Options > Preferences. Inside of the Preferences window, click on the Panels section and select Show hidden files (Ctrl-Alt-H).

Start the Server

  1. Start your server.
  2. Enjoy your game!
