Hi,
Today comes a new tool, named ManiaHost, designed to increase and make easier the file hosting in the TM Community. Indeed lots of players are looking for a hosting service. Thanks to ManiaHost, you can be the one who offer this hosting service?

This system allows people with a web server to rent their unused space to other players. ManiaHost is a library written in php with Manialib. It’s simple to install thanks to its wizard. Once setup is finished you just have to register the manialink urls on your player page then open registrations on your service.

Thanks to ManiaHost you will be able to simply host your skins, mods, tracks and even your Manialink in XML. Howerever the php files are not accepted for some obvious sécurity reasons.
The config requirement are:
  • php 5 or higher
  • gd extension for php
  • MySQL 5
You can download the ManiaHost package for free at the following adresse: http://files.trackmaniaforever.com/mani ... er_1.0.zip

New Release and new features for ManiaHost!
Now, Hosters who want to propose a dedicated hosting can do it.
The procedure is pretty simple, you just have to put the login and the password of the dedicated account, then follow the instructions. You have to access to your server in command line or with a remote desktop, to use this feature.

For people who already have setup ManiaHost, you have to download the following package http://files.trackmaniaforever.com/mani ... pgrade.zip
For other people it's this package http://files.trackmaniaforever.com/mani ... er_2.0.zip

To setup follow readme instructions.

What do you think that a community website should be ? :wink:
To add a server in your favorit list, copy this link in your game’s browser address bar
tmtp://#addfavourite=serverlogin

For direct hosting open to all, write <hide_server>1</hide_server> in the command line and use
tmtp://#join=serverlogin
