Making a server - i dont understand!

Post by freaQ » 06 Nov 2008, 17:03

Hey!

I wanted to install the server local on my maschine, to play a bit with c

i download the package vom above, but there are mostly "exe" files in, sorry but i dont run a exe, on my ubuntu maschine!

isnt there an (maybe easy) way to install that on my Apache?

Or somebody can say me a link to a german howto?

And another Question, couse there are EXE files in, does this game run on a windows server???????????

thx

On Ubuntu it is quite straight forward to compile directly from the latest SVN sources, see this wiki page for details:

Good luck! :D

EDIT: No, the official server does not run on Window$. But you most likely found a windows package or something.

The packet above includes both windows and linux binaries. To start and control the server you can use the included shell script.

"eathena start" starts the server and "eathena stop" stops it.

Certainly not, because Apache is a http daemon. You need a machine with shell access to run eAthena.

i have a nother problem!

there is no "map-server" in the tmwserver folder!?!?!?

i try installing 3 times, and do all what stands on that site, but its isnt there

but when i start server there stands:

Code: Select all

roman@FreaQsKisTn:~/eathena-tmw/server-data$ ./eathena.sh start
Starting eathena monitor...
Starting:
* interval: 2 s
* workdir: /home/roman/tmwserver
* login_server: /home/roman/tmwserver/login-server
* map_server: /home/roman/tmwserver/map-server
* char_server: /home/roman/tmwserver/char-server
but when i want to connect there stands: "Error Map Server Offline"

but where is the map server? not in "/home/roman/tmwserver/map-server"

thx

Did it compile?

Can you join us on IRC? It'll be easier to diagnose this there.

Wasn't there some problem with the map server not compiling on 64bit systems because of some error in the build script?

We worked it out in IRC. the zlib dev package was missing.

Actually, I was never able to successfully compile it.
