vMenu is server sided menu for FiveM servers, including full* permission support.
*(Some features do not have permissions support as they are either harmless or it’d just be silly to deny them. However, they will be disabled if you deny access to the submenu that they are a part of (eg: unlimited stamina in Player Options will be disabled if you deny vMenu.PlayerOptions.Menu.))
Installing vs Updating
If you’re updating vMenu, instead of installing it from scratch, you need to make sure that you REPLACE ALL files, EXCEPT your
permissions.cfg and all files in the
IMPORTANT: Before installing vMenu, make sure your FXServer artifacts are up to date. Yes update the server. Just do it. Don’t be lazy and come crying if it doesn’t work because you didn’t update the server.
IMPORTANT: If you’re updating vMenu from any version below v3.3.0, and you want to keep your saved bans, please read the changelog.
- Go to the RELEASES page (on the GitHub repo), and download “vMenu-<version>.zip”, or use the “Download vMenu” button on the left side of this page to automatically download the latest version.
- Once you’ve got your zip file, extract the files and copy everything into
/resources/vMenu/so that you end up with the
__resource.lua) file right here:
If you’re trying to join the server, and it gives you an error saying “Could not load resource vMenu” or something similar, then make sure that you’ve installed vMenu inside
/resources/vMenu/and NOT inside
/resources/vMenu/vMenu/! Also note that the resource folder name MUST be called
vMenu(Case Sensitive!!!) or the script will not work.
- Now that you’ve got your files inside
/resources/vMenu/, go into the
/resources/vMenu/config/folder and move (or copy) the
permissions.cfgfile to the same folder where your
server.cfgfile is located.
If you’re using ZAP Hosting, you might want to leave the permissions.cfg file inside the config folder, and use
exec resources/vMenu/config/permissions.cfginstead of
exec permissions.cfgin step 4. Alternatively, if you don’t want to mess with any of these installation steps, install vMenu using their one-click installer! Don’t have a FiveM server yet? Click here to get a server, and use the code

- Go to your
server.cfgfile, and add
exec permissions.cfgat the very top of the file (use the other command explained in step 3 if you’re using Zap Hosting).
- Now, add
start vMenusomewhere inside your server.cfg file, position doesn’t matter as long as it’s below the
- Save the server.cfg file and start your server. Once you’re in, you should be able to access most menu’s just fine without having to configure anything inside the permissions.cfg. This is because it is setup to have certain permissions for everyone by default, only administrator/moderator sensitive options have been removed from the default permissions file.
Congratulations, you’ve just installed vMenu in it’s most basic, plug-and-play configuration.
