rAthena is a collaborative software development project revolving around the creation of a robust massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) server package. Written in C, the program is very versatile and provides NPCs, warps and modifications. The project is jointly managed by a group of volunteers located around the world as well as a tremendous community providing QA and support. rAthena is a continuation of the eAthena project.

  1. Prerequisites

Before installing rAthena there are certain tools and applications you will need. This differs between the varying operating systems available, so the following is broken down into Windows and Linux prerequisites.

  1. Installation

This section is a very brief set of installation instructions. For more concise guides relevant to your Operation System, please refer to the Wiki (links at the end of this file).

  • Windows

    • Install prerequisites

    • Create a folder to download rAthena into (e.g. C:\rAthena)

    • Right click this folder and select "Git Clone"

    • Paste the GitHub URL into the box:

        	https://github.com/rathena/rathena.git
      
    • Open MySQL Workbench and create an instance to connect to your MySQL Server

    • Create a database (rathena), a user (rathena), give permissions (GRANT SELECT,INSERT,UPDATE,DELETE) and then login using the new user

    • Use MySQL Workbench to run the .sql files in /sql-files/ on the new rathena database

  • Linux

    • Type:

      • (For CentOS)

          yum install gcc make mysql mysql-devel mysql-server pcre-devel zlib-devel
          rpm -Uvhhttp://repo.webtatic.com/yum/centos/5/latest.rpm
          yum install --enablerepo=webtatic git-all
          yum install --enablerepo=webtatic --disableexcludes=main git-all
        
      • (For Debian)

          apt-get install git make gcc libmysqlclient-dev zlib1g-dev libpcre3-dev
        
    • Type:

        	mysql_secure_installation
      
    • Start your MySQL server

    • Setup a MySQL user:

        	CREATE USER 'rathena'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
      
    • Assign permissions:

        	GRANT SELECT,INSERT,UPDATE,DELETE ON `rathena\_rag`.* TO 'rathena'@'localhost';
      
    • Clone a GIT repository:

        	git clone https://github.com/rathena/rathena.git ~/rathena
      
    • Insert SQL files:

        	mysql --user=root -p rathena_rag < trunk/sql-files/main.sql (and others)
      
    • Configure and compile:

        	./configure && make clean && make server
      
    • When you're ready, start the servers:

        	./athena-start start
      
  1. Troubleshooting

If you're having problems with starting your server, the first thing you should do is check what's happening on your consoles. More often that not, all support issues can be solved simply by looking at the error messages given.

Examples:

  • You get an error on your map-server that looks something like this:

      	[Error]: npc_parsesrcfile: Unable to parse, probably a missing or extra TAB in 
      		file 'npc/custom/jobmaster.txt', line '17'. Skipping line...
      		* w1=prontera,153,193,6 script
      		* w2=Job Master
      		* w3=123,{
      		* w4=
    

    If you look at the error, it's telling you that you're missing (or have an extra) TAB. This is easily fixed by looking at this part of the error:

      		* w1=prontera,153,193,6 script
    

    If there was a TAB where it's supposed to be, that line would have prontera,153,193,6 at w1 and 'script' at w2. As there's a space instead of a TAB, the two sections are read as a single parameter.

  • You have a default user/password warning similar to the following:

      	[Warning]: Using the default user/password s1/p1 is NOT RECOMMENDED.
      	[Notice]: Please edit your 'login' table to create a proper inter-server user/pa
      	ssword (gender 'S')
      	[Notice]: and then edit your user/password in conf/map_athena.conf (or conf/impo
      	rt/map_conf.txt)
    

    Relax. This is just indicating that you're using the default username and password. To fix this, check over the part in the installation instructions relevant to the login table.

  • Your map-server outputs the following:

      	[Error]: make_connection: connect failed (socket #2, error 10061: No connection
      	could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
      	)!
    

    If this shows up on the map server, it generally means that there is no Char Server available to accept the connection.

rAthena has a large collection of help files and sample NPC scripts located in the /doc/ directory. These include detailed explanations of NPC script commands, atcommands (@), group permissions, item bonuses, and packet structures, among many other topics. We recommend that all users take the time to look over this directory before asking for assistance elsewhere.
