Install on Debian
Basic DEB Installation guide
APT-GET and APTITUDE can be used interchangeably depending upon the Debian based Operating System. It needs to be run with sudo or su (depending again on your OS).
This part of the article will use subversion to obtain the source code of EA. The structure of subversion will allow the user to download either the trunk or branch of RA. A trunk contains the latest code that would be useful if you are testing or really need a new feature. The branch contains stable source code that has gone through testing and bug fixes to ensure that the server will remain stable with the highest uptime possible.
This guide is assuming that you already have the operating system installed. Well first off let me congratulate you on your choice to run a linux server. I can honestly not think of any downsides to running a server with a linux operating system. These Guides also assume you have a 32bit version installed.
Deb Based Distributions of Linux
rAthena Installation Guide for Debian/Ubuntu/Knoppix/DSL/and Other DEB based Distro's Other Distro's are only applicable if they have APT-GET or Aptitude installed.
APT-GET - and - Aptitude
can be used in place of the other should you so choose but for the purposes of this guide and my own personal preference I choose to use apt-get
For Debian/Knoppix/and Other Distro's not including Ubuntu it may be necessary to substitute
sudo - for - su
To everyone who is running their Linux with a GUI (Graphical User Interface) I would recommend that you not get too attached to it since we will be using the Terminal/CLI (Command Line Interface). I will give instruction for install a MySQL 5.0 Server at the end. Necessary Programs
apt-get install git make libmysqlclient-dev zlib1g-dev libpcre3-dev echo "deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/unstable.list apt-get update apt-get install -t unstable gcc-5 apt-get install -t unstable g++-5 ln -s /usr/bin/gcc-5 /usr/bin/gcc ln -s /usr/bin/g++-5 /usr/bin/g++
Cloning The Repository
You can obtain the latest version of rAthena by typing the following command. This will place rAthena in a folder called rAthena in your home directory, but you are free to change it to whatever you like:
git clone https://github.com/rathena/rathena.git ~/rAthena
Updating Existing Code
To pull the latest updates for rAthena you can do the following:
Run configure script
make server chmod a+x login-server && chmod a+x char-server && chmod a+x map-server
How to Recompile
Recompiling is the same as compiling except you always run this command after you configure it
make clean && make server
How to Start
Use the following commands:
if u get error like this : -bash: ./athena-start: /bin/sh^M: bad interpreter
just install dos2unix
apt-get install dos2unix
then run :
now u will able to use ./athena-start start after chmod a+x athena-start
You may need to run a a distribution upgrade just in case you will be running your mysql in the same vps/dedicated server. To do so you may run the command line:
After getting the upgrade done you may now install the mysql server, to do so:
apt-get install mysql-server
You will be prompted with a blue screen asking for your Administration password, please note that you must use a secure password since this will be your root sql password. Once done you may need to check if your mysql server is running. To do so you can:
service mysql status
If its offline you can turn it on using this command line:
service mysqld start
If it's online you can start creating your database by running the following command lines:
mysql -u root -p
You will be asked to type in your root or administration password, after logging in successfully type the following commands to start making your ragnarok database.
mysql> CREATE DATABASE (your ragnarok database name);
You need to create new user for your ragnarok database.
mysql> GRANT ALL ON yourragnarokdatabasename.* TO yourdatabaseusername@localhost IDENTIFIED BY "yourdesiredpassword";
Now its time to create required tables. Exit mysql console, by using ctrl + c and start with:
mysql -u username -password yourragnarokdatabasename < /path/to/your/ragnarok folder/trunk/sql-files/main.sql
and all the other necessary sql files.
and done. Now all you have to do is edit your configuration files etc.
