Install on hosting server

Post by Originalname75 » 24 Feb 2015 18:16

Hello,
Today I have a server on gameservers.com, everything works fine but I want a system like XASECO2 in my server.

The main problem is that tutorials that I found on the internet are for dedicated server which are not hosted if I understand well.

So I did what I should do on the XASECO2 website, but gameservers.com don't alows me to run .sh codes. I can just put on line of code to run the server :
./ManiaPlanetServer /dedicated_cfg=dedicated_cfg.txt /game_settings=MatchSettings/perso.txt /nodaemon

So I tried the code :
php xaseco2/xaseco2.php TM2C </dev/null >xaseco2.log 2>&1 &

but I don't have
[XAseco2] PHP Version is 5.3.x on Linux
[XAseco2] Load settings [config.xml]... etc

but a "random" number between 6000 and 7000 :O

Can someone help me ?

Cordially

PS: gameservers.com forum is empty for everything which deals whit TM2

Well you can try contacting them.
Either they have to give PHP 5.3.x and a way to start the Xaseco command. either from a .sh (batch) file or enteing the command manualy.

Other option is they give you access to the TrackManina RPC port 5000.
So you can some how setup xaseco plus database on your own computer. But that's all kinda clumsy and very slow.

So best way is for them to let you use php 5.3.x plus MySql 5.X.
if their not willing to do that start looking for another game server hosting. And before you sign on to new host make sure they meet your requirements. cos TrackMania server without some kind of server control and stats is kinda bare .. and it kinda lame they host it like that.

Edit.

I send a message to them, but now I know what I have to ask them, tx to you.

If they can't help me maybe I will go to ping kings servers but it's a bit more expensive.

This "random number" should be the process ID. Pretty irrelevant for you, if you're at a gameserverhoster. Don't panic, XAseco should run fine anyway :D
