    Ubuntu 21.04 WoW WOTLK Simple Server Setup Guide

    Client Side: https://www.warmane.com/download

    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.

    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/
     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 (mangos zero, mangos one etc..) on the same server,
     But you will need two databases (characters and world) for each core you run.  mysql
     UPDATE realmlist SET name = "ServerNameGoesHere" WHERE id = "1";
     UPDATE realmlist SET address = "ServerWANIPAddressHere" WHERE id = "1";

    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

     screen -S realm -d -m ./realmd
     screen -S mangos -d -m ./mangosd

    Step 8: Play the game

    @Gryphon4200 Hello and thank you for the waltkhrough guide with Ubuntu 21.04.

    Before publishing, can you please remove your client warmane links since it is not allowed to share Blizzard copyrighted content (Game Clients)

    You can also put some screenshots like the Guide I published for Ubuntu 18.04 and to be more user-friendly and enjoyable to read you can use the same formatting for text-emphasis etc...
