BEFORE YOU INSTALL
You will need a current version of Genesis to use ColdCore-3.1. Information on getting the latest Genesis can be found at:
Once you have Genesis compiled, locate the programs 'coldcc' and 'genesis' (created from the Genesis distribution) and move them to the 'bin' directory. Then type:
If there are no problems, the above two commands will compile the
textdump and then into a binary database.
The base directories genesis prefers (see the Genesis Documentation for full details), exist as:
dbbin/ -- directory where programs can be placed for execution from the database logs/ -- where logfiles go backups/ -- backup files, created by dbbin/backup root/ -- root directory for db file operations bin/ -- binary location for other programs
STARTING FOR THE FIRST TIME
The first people to create accounts will be creating administrative accounts, and will be placed into a configuration subsystem. Therefore, it is in your best interest to start the server and connect alone first, then after you finish the configuration you can invite others to connect.
You can start your server at any time by typing:
This will create a daemon process in the background. You can now connect to your server through port 1138, or on the web through port 1180.
Once you connect to port 1138, you can type 'Help' for a list of commands available at the login screen. You will want to use the command 'create' to create a new user. By default all new users are created with administrator privileges--and a configuration system is also run at the same time, so be sure to do this before inviting other people onto your server.
