Setting up a Linux dedicated server

Postby chase » Wed 19 Feb 2014 05:36

Hey guys,

I recently got access to the dedicated files to run a server, however I am having issues setting up the server itself given I have little knowledge regarding Linux terminal commands as I usually use windows. So I have the following questions:

Do I need to install a GUI like gnome?
If not, anybody know the terminal commands needed to get steam on the system and download the game files?

I'm asking a loaded question but I would be ever so grateful if you guys could help me with this.

hi!

if you don´t REALLY need a linux machine for something else, why not use a windows pc and a VM for linux and the server?
if you´re not soooo deep into linux yet, your live will be extremely easier, using just a VM.
(no need for linux drivers, simple backup for your linux, ...)

maybe take a look at this:

and that:

you shouldn´t really need a GUI...
but live is MUCH easier, using one.

you don´t need steam at all to run the server.
the tiny files, you downloaded frum eugen is all it needs!

be sure to install a 32 bit version of debian!
(if 64, you will need to install those 32bit libraries, too!!!)

think about it, if you need any further assistance, just ask.

Where could we find the 32bit libraries to run it on a 64bit system?

You have to install the OS in Linux Dedicated server. I commonly use Ubuntu because of its ease of use and simple administration. It also has a rather large and extremely active community behind it, which makes getting
support a breeze.
To install an OpenSSH server. This allows you to administer your server from remote computers.
A LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) stack is going to be installed. This provides the backbone that will run
your web site. Apache is the industry standard web server on Unix-based operating systems; it's what most web hosts
use (NETTUTS is using it right now!). Thank q for reading with patience.
