Hello everyone ! After setting-up your server on a Linux-based distro, you may wonder : how to let the realmd & mangosd deamons run on your server with all consoles closed ? how to automatically restart theses daemons if they crash ? how to restart theses dameons ? how to get access to the daemons consoles after having closed all your terminals ? Well, you are at the right place ! PREREQUISITE The "screen" app must be installed and also "gdb" in order to correctly dump chrash data : sudo apt install screen gdb PART 1 : Localize your bin folder Go to a folder where you would like to install the script. By default mangso should be installed in : /opt/wow/install/mangos/bin PART 2 : Creating the file Create a file called wowadmin.sh. touch wowadmin.sh Make it executable : chmod +x wowadmin.sh Paste the code below in the file and change the variables "/path/to/your/realmd" and "/path/to/your/mangosd" as your real paths to realmd and mangosd : PART 3 : How to use ? You can use the script with its options like : ./wowadmin.sh start Available options are : start : Starts realmd and mangosd - in a screened process. stop : Stops realmd and mangosd - in a screened process. restart : Retarts realmd and mangosd - in a screened process. wstart : Starts only mangosd - in a screened process. wdstart : Starts only mangosd in DEBUG mode - in a screened process. wrestart : Restarts only mangosd - in a screened process wstop : Stops mangosd - screened process. wmonitor : Brings back the mangosd console from the screened process (press "Ctrl+A+D" to re-detach it). astart : Starts only realmd - in a screened process. arestart : Restarts only realmd - in a screened process. astop : Stops only realmd - in a screened process. amonitor : Brings back the realmd console (press "Ctrl+A+D" to re-detach it). Moreover, when there is a crash, the daemons will auto-restart dans there will be a crashlog dumped in "crashes" directory next to your deamons executable binaries. For your information, you can see the screened processes by typing : screen -ls You can use multiple wowadmin.sh files if you manage multiple realms but the more simple would be to add specific options in the same script for your differents mangosd dameons as there could be only 1 realmd daemon running and many mangosd daemons running.
