SWLRP Roleplay Profile Add-On - Server


  • For Ubuntu with Apache:
    apt-get install composer apache2 libapache2-mod-php php7.0-mysql mysql-server-5.7

Setup instructions (command-line)

  • Clone the repository:
    git clone
  • Install dependencies:
    cd swlrp-server/
    composer install
  • Create the database in the MySQL (if it doesn't already exist):
    mysql -u <username> -p
    CREATE DATABASE <dbname>
  • Create the config file in swlrp-server/config/
    cd config/
    cp config.yml.vendor config.yml
  • Change the DB section of the config file according to needs
  • Execute schema/setup.sql in your database
    cd schema/
    mysql <dbname> -u <username> -p < setup.sql
  • Run the refresh_properties script in swlrp-server/scripts/
    cd swlrp-server/scripts
    php refresh_properties.php

Setting up the vhost

Simply use the swlrp-server/public folder as webroot. Also redirect all requests that would otherwise result in a "404 file not found" back to swlrp-server/public/index.php, e.g. using ModRewrite (Apache) or try_files (nginx).

  • In Apache, add the following to the .conf file:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)? /index.php?$1 [L,NC]
    Also make sure to enable the rewrite mod and restart Apache:
    a2enmod rewrite
    service apache2 restart

Changing available properties

In the Models/Profile section of config.yaml, you can set up which properties and texts will be available. Properties are limited to 40 characters, texts allow up to 20000 characters and rich elements. For each property or text, you can set certain options:

  • name: The name under which the property or text is stored in the database (equals key if not specified)
  • title: The title of the field to be displayed to the user (only needed if different from the name)
  • autocomplete: Use past values to offer the user an autocomplete popup (properties only)
  • constraint: Limit the input field to certain types of data (properties only)

Note that after you changed the available property/text names (changed a name, added/removed a property/text), you have to run the refresh_properties script again. This will:

  • Mark the old properties as deleted
  • Insert new properties

Note that no actual data will be deleted. If for some reason you want to bring back a previously-removed property, simply add it back to the config and re-run the script. The old data will be available again.

Live operation notes

In order for the page to work inside the in-game browser, you need to be aware that the game is using a really old version of Chrome. This means:

  • You need to use conservative / compatible HTTPS settings (even if it's not the most secure... better than no HTTPS at all?)
  • The JavaScript needs to be transpiled into something the game understands:
    • Install a recent version of V8Js.
    • Install composer dev dependencies to get php-babel-transpiler.
    • Run the transpile_js script.
