Setting up a Linux Dedicated Server for the First Time! Watch Thread


Posts: 112
Tutorial tested and approved by Extrodus on Debian 6.0.

1. Open putty or any kind of ssh program & log into your dedicated server.

2. Type down the following commands..

#sudo su
- Enter your root password

#apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client
- New password for the MySQL "root" user: <-- yourrootsqlpassword
- Repeat password for the MySQL "root" user: <-- yourrootsqlpassword

#apt-get install lighttpd

#apt-get install php5-cgi

#apt-get install nano

#nano /etc/php5/cgi/php.ini
- Search(ctrl+w) for "cgi.fix_pathinfo=1".. If you find this then you are doing this right!

#lighttpd-enable-mod fastcgi

#lighttpd-enable-mod fastcgi-php

#/etc/init.d/lighttpd force-reload
- Now go to your web-browser & go to http://yourdedicatedserverip/index.lighttpd.html/ & it should work!

#apt-get install php5-mysql php5-curl php5-gd php5-idn php-pear php5-imagick php5-imap php5-mcrypt php5-memcache php5-ming php5-ps php5-pspell php5-recode php5-snmp php5-sqlite php5-tidy php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl

#/etc/init.d/lighttpd restart

#apt-get install phpmyadmin
- Choose lighttpd
- Enter same password as mysql.
- Now you have installed Website+phpmyadmin.
- To make it more secure, you need to change url of phpmyadmin path & add a bit dos protection.. Just type the following codes below in terminal.

#mv /usr/share/phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin1234*
*This is your new path name.. etc. http://yourdedicatedserverip/phpmyadmin1234/
Move Phpmyadmin folder to /www/

#netstat -ntu | awk '{print $5}' | cut -d: -f1 | sort | uniq -c | sort -n
#chmod 0700

3. Now you want your own layout and website files.. (www/htdocs).

#chmod 777 /var
- Delete /var/www on the dedicated server
- Change name of htdocs to www
- Transfer it via WinSCP or any kind of transfer program to /var/

#chmod 777 /var
- open /var/www/config/config.ini & change path to /home/serverfolder

4. Before we can compile sources you need to have them.. so you need to download sources & transfer your serverfolder to the dedicated server(i would suggest into /home/..

- Use your own sources or download sources at your needs HERE.
- Transfer your server to the dedicated server (/home/) by using WinSCP or any kind of transfer program.

5. Now we will compile the server by typing the following below.

#apt-get install build-essential libxml2-dev libxml++2.6-dev liblua5.1-0-dev libboost-all-dev libmysql++-dev libgmp3-dev liblua5.1-sql-mysql-dev liblua5.1-sql-sqlite-dev libsqlite3-dev zlib1g-dev

#chmod 777 -R /home/sourcesfolder

#cd /home/sourcesfolder


#./configure --enable-mysql --enable-server-diag --enable-root-permission

#nano Makefile
- Search(ctrl+w) for "OPT".. If you find this then you can add "-D__WAR_SYSTEM__"
- Press ctrl+o, enter & then ctrl+X.

- Wait until it's done and then continue.

#chmod +x /home/sourcefolder/theforgottenserver

#cp /home/sourcefolder/theforgottenserver /home/serverfolder/theforgottenserver

Command for starting server & restarting when crashin & closing it.:

#cd /home/serverfolder

Command for starting server:

Command for closing server:

Command for starting server and restarts automatic if crashed:
#while true; do ./theforgottenserver; done

When you run server on dedicated you need to attach ./theforgottenserver orelse it will close when you close putty. To avoid that do the following.

#cd /home/serverfolder

#screen ./theforgottenserver
- Press CTRL+A+D to close putty without closing server

#screen -r
- This is if you want to show the servers terminal again.

Extra Commands to try if you run into problems:
Download Libraries command doesn't work
sudo apt-get install subversion autoconf build-essential pkg-config libboost-dev libgmp3-dev libxml2-dev liblua5.1-0-dev libmysqlclient-dev libcrypto++-dev ccache libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-regex-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-thread-dev screen libssl-dev

Auto Reconf not installed
install autoreconf
sudo apt-get install dh-autoreconf

Lua Header not found
apt-get install libncurses5-dev

And after, try this one:
tar -xzvf lua*
cd lua*
make linux && make install
then do ./configure again

my suggestion is DO NOT USE PHPMYADMIN, if you really need it then after finished work, delete it for security reasons : )
