  1. Warmane link removed and changed up the syntax a bit. I might do a video tutorial instead of screenshots. I just haven't had the time to knock that out yet.
  2. Ubuntu 21.04 WoW WOTLK Simple Server Setup Guide Client Side: You will need version 3.3.5a (Wrath of The Lich King) of the client for this server setup. Hardware specs used for this guide: Quad-core CPU 8 Gigs of RAM 120 Gb HDD Step 1: Install the OS Install base Ubuntu server with updates. There are a ton of tutorials on how to do that: YouTube Tutorials Step 2: Install required packages apt-get install git make cmake libssl-dev libbz2-dev build-essential default-libmysqlclient-dev libace-dev python mysql-server Step 3: Setup the database mkdir ~/mangos/ mkdir ~/mangos/db cd ~/mangos/db/ mysql CREATE USER 'mangos'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'mangos'; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'mangos'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION; exit; git clone https://github.com/mangostwo/database.git --recursive cd database ./InstallDatabases.sh Select N - Next Step when prompted and fill out the host details. You will also be prompted to determine your databases names. A good practice is to set the realm database name to: mangos_auth Also to suffix all others database names with the core versions you are running: Examples - mangos_characters2 and mangos_world2 Note: You only need one realm database if you run several cores (M0, M1, etc..) on the same server. But you will need two databases (characters and world) for each additional core. mysql USE mangos_auth; UPDATE realmlist SET name = "ServerNameGoesHere" WHERE id = "1"; UPDATE realmlist SET address = "ServerWANIPAddressHere" WHERE id = "1"; exit; Step 4: Download and compile mangos cd ~/mangos git clone https://github.com/mangostwo/server.git --recursive cmake -S ~/mangos/server/ -B ~/mangos/build/ cd ~/mangos/build make -j<# of CPUs/Cores> make -j<# of CPUs/Cores> install Step 5: Copy files mkdir /srv/mangos mkdir /srv/mangos/bin mkdir /srv/mangos/gamedata/ cd install/bin cp mangosd /srv/mangos/bin/ cp realmd /srv/mangos/bin/ cp tools/*-extractor /srv/mangos/gamedata/ cp tools/*.sh /srv/mangos/gamedata/ cp tools/offmesh.txt /srv/mangos/gamedata/ <Aquire gamedata files and copy them to /srv/mangos/gamedata> <Optional simple FTP setup> apt-get install vsftpd vi /etc/vsftpd.conf Change: listen=NO to YES Uncomment: write_enable=YES Add the line: local_root = <path to gamedata folder> service vsftpd restart chmod -R a+w /srv/mangos/gamedata <End optional FTP setup> cd /srv/mangos/gamedata chmod a+x ExtractResources.sh ./ExtractResources.sh <This bit takes forever.> Step 6: Setup and Configure *.conf files cp -R ~/mangos/build/etc /srv/mangos/ cd /srv/mangos/etc cp ahbot.conf.dist ahbot.conf cp mangosd.conf.dist mangosd.conf cp realmd.conf.dist realmd.conf  Update realmd.conf <read file comments for details> Update mangos.conf <read file comments for details> Suggested tweaks: LogLevel = 1 (Default is 3) GameType = # Server realm style 0 = NORMAL; 1 = PVP; 4 = PVE; 6 = RP; 8 = RPPVP RealmZone = <read file comments for details> Ra.Enable = 1 (Default is 0) <This will allow you to remotely access the server console> *Use putty in a raw mode to connect to port 3443 of the server. Step 7: Start services You can start these processes in other ways but I recommend this screen method for starting out. Using screen will allow you to run multiple processes in the background from the same terminal without the need to stay logged in. screen -S realm -d -m ./realmd screen -S mangos -d -m ./mangosd Step 8: Play the game Update %WoWDir%\Data\enUS\realmlist.wtf set realmlist <Server Hostname or IP Address> Open the desktop client and log in with one of the premade user accounts. USERNAME PASSWORD ADMINISTRATOR ADMINISTRATOR GAMEMASTER GAMEMASTER MODERATOR MODERATOR PLAYER PLAYER Optional Step 9: Add users  From the running mangos server instance: <This is where a remote Putty session comes in handy.> account create <username> <password> account set addon <username> # (0 - Normal, 1 - The Burning Crusade, 2 - Lich King)
