I have a VPS with a very basic panel (allows start/stop/reboot) along with LXadmin or something simular. Thats all it has. I was wondering if there was a way and what steps i would need to take to install a SA-MP server on it. It's using CentOS.

I assume you have SSH access?

wget http://files.sa-mp.com/samp02Xsvr.tar.gz
cd /home/yourusername
tar -xvf samp02Xsvr.tar.gz
cd /home/username/samp02X
nohup ./samp02Xsvr &

Done :mrgreen:

Do i need something like GameCP as well to control it?

Thanks for the help also.

No, but you could use Westie control panel & an automatic server restarter would be usefull ;) (search for it on the forums).

This will exit the server as soon as you close putty (or w/e he uses), I'm not sure how to prevent that.. hmm.
