There are some online games that normally require the hosting on a server of a particular operating system. This facilitates online gaming in its most real senseplayers can compete with actual people as long as they’re all online. So there is the decision making of which server to have the game hosted.
The setting up of the server on the game server on a Linux server will require a prior knowledge of how to install. To begin with, high performance is usually equated with Linux virtual servers. It is able to handle upwards of up to 100,000 connections simultaneously. Game servers hosted on Linux virtual server hosting are actually well equipped even if said game has been designed for a different OS. They are a number of things that should be considered before setting up a game server which should be running on a Linux server. The game should be able to run from a Linux vps host and be readily available for use from a different game user from the set network.
The following are steps in setting up a Linux VPS platform for a game. Before anything else, you must first use the command “gunzip goserver.tar.gz” in order to restore the goserver package. If done properly, the server should be able to make an automatic goserver directory. Said directory will contain all the necessary files. By entering the command “tar xvf goserver.tar”, you can create said directory. The goserver directory will have 5 sub directories, namely: bin, globalops, installation, lib, and monitor.
The bin subdirectory will have a goserver.elf file and the server profile server.prf.
If you go to lib/Linux release, you’ll find that it contains three dynamic libraries. Under the globalops subdirectory, there will be a resource file which will be really necessary for the running g of the goserver. Once you open the installation subdirectory you will find the guide to set up. The monitor sub directory will have some remote monitors which can be able to run under Linux or windows platforms.
You should place the executable file in bin to the server profile. Move the dynamic libraries to the system path. After you’ve done the aforementioned, you need to simply bind the Linux server to a particular IP address. Your Linux VPS is now ready to be configured with the game.
