Default Guide to setup a SA-MP server

Hi, and welcome at:

ProfessorOak's How To Create A Server!

Because i saw a lot of 'How can i have an own server' topics, i decided to create a Tutorial where i'm going to learn you, how you can set up a server! Take your time & Enjoy!

Step 1: Download The Windows / Linux Server
To begin, we are going to take a look at http://www.sa-mp.com/, click on Downloads, and scroll to "SA:MP 0.2.2 Windows Server Download". Download the file: SA:MP 0.2.2 Windows Server. Open it, and you will get something like this:


This is WHOLE your server!




Step 2: Change the server.cfg file
If you open, the server.cfg file, you will get this: ( 'Explaining Next To It - ATTENTION AT THE BOTTOM ')

[img width=1024 height=266]http://upload.fusion9.nl/images/168087Test1.jpg[/img]
Now you have changed your server.cfg ( And you Rcon Password ), you will be able to run a server.
You can now run your server, by pressing the button, "samp.server.exe"



Step 3: Change the Gamemode
So, you don't want to have a server, which runs the gamemode, lvdm?
Well, than you can simply change your gamemod, by going, for example to the sa-mp forums.

Here can you see a lot of released gamemodes! Be nice & Hold the credits!



For example, i want to download, [GM] Public Enemy LS - Updated
I download it, and I put every single downloaded file, in my server files.

So you think you are ready now? NO! Your forgot something! You didn't change the gamemod line in server.cfg!


So instead of gamemode0 lvdm 1, you delete lvdm 1 and you change it, in penls 1!

Step 4: Change the Filterscript(s)

This is exactly the same as the gamemod. But, remember! Also change the server.cfg!

Now you can run a professional server! Enjoy!

!Attention -&- Attention!
*Always change your RCON password, in a long, difficult password. Something like this: coffee6596pianoLOLZORx66
*When you compile a ( for example ) PENLS.PWN File, you will get the PENLS.AMX file. Only the .AMX file, is running in the server.
*If you only had a gamemode: penls.pwn, you will not be to run it. MAKE SURE you add the compiled file!!! ( The penls.amx file )

If you STILL have got any questions, you first MUST read the server-readme.txt, which you can find in the downloaded, server sa-mp file.

If you STILL have got any questions, you can ask it here!

I hope there will be more & Better & ... servers!

Enjoy!

ProfessorOak

That's because, you have to open your Router ( If you don't know how, take a look at this)

Or, you can simply play on the ip:
127.0.0.1:7777, but than, people wont be able to connect your server. Only you can connect @ 127.0.0.1:7777

I've done everything that has been said here, and in the two tutorials I have found on forwarding/opening ports, but it just doesn't work!

Whatever IP adress I try, when I attempt to connect, it says it cannot connect to the server, it's reeeeally annoying me!
