Installation 32 bit

Main binary

Download the latest stable 32 bit Linux binaries:

rm multitheftauto_linux-1.5.6.tar.gz
wget http://linux.mtasa.com/dl/156/multitheftauto_linux-1.5.6.tar.gz

Unpack into a directory:

tar -xf multitheftauto_linux-1.5.6.tar.gz

Default config

Download the default config files:

rm baseconfig-1.5.6.tar.gz
wget http://linux.mtasa.com/dl/156/baseconfig-1.5.6.tar.gz

Unpack and move into the deathmatch directory:
(Note: Only do this for new installations as it will overwrite any existing config files.)

tar -xf baseconfig-1.5.6.tar.gz
mv baseconfig/* multitheftauto_linux-1.5.6/mods/deathmatch

Change to the MTA server install directory:

cd multitheftauto_linux-1.5.6

Test

You can now test if the server will start correctly:

./mta-server

Default resources

If you need the default resources: Download the latest default resources zip from http://mirror.mtasa.com/mtasa/resources/ and unzip into mods/deathmatch/resources
Make sure you are in the MTA server install directory when following this example:

 apt-get install unzip
 mkdir mods/deathmatch/resources
 cd mods/deathmatch/resources
 wget http://mirror.mtasa.com/mtasa/resources/mtasa-resources-latest.zip
 unzip mtasa-resources-latest.zip
 rm mtasa-resources-latest.zip

Installation 64 bit

Main binary

Download the latest stable 64 bit Linux binaries:

rm multitheftauto_linux_x64-1.5.6.tar.gz
wget http://linux.mtasa.com/dl/156/multitheftauto_linux_x64-1.5.6.tar.gz

Unpack into a directory:

tar -xf multitheftauto_linux_x64-1.5.6.tar.gz

Default config

Download the default config files:

rm baseconfig-1.5.6.tar.gz
wget http://linux.mtasa.com/dl/156/baseconfig-1.5.6.tar.gz

Unpack and move into the deathmatch directory:
(Note: Only do this for new installations as it will overwrite any existing config files.)

tar -xf baseconfig-1.5.6.tar.gz
mv baseconfig/* multitheftauto_linux_x64-1.5.6/mods/deathmatch

Change to the MTA server install directory:

cd multitheftauto_linux_x64-1.5.6

Test

You can now test if the server will start correctly:

./mta-server64

Default resources

If you need the default resources: Download the latest default resources zip from http://mirror.mtasa.com/mtasa/resources/ and unzip into mods/deathmatch/resources
Make sure you are in the MTA server install directory when following this example:

apt-get install unzip
mkdir mods/deathmatch/resources
cd mods/deathmatch/resources
rm mtasa-resources-latest.zip
wget http://mirror.mtasa.com/mtasa/resources/mtasa-resources-latest.zip
unzip mtasa-resources-latest.zip
rm mtasa-resources-latest.zip

Running with 32 or 64 bit Linux

Make sure your server libraries and stuff are up to date

On Debian/Ubuntu this is done with:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Troubleshooting

  • If you get a problem with such as "libreadline.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.", it can be solved on 32 bit Debian/Ubuntu by doing this:
apt-get install libreadline5
  • If you get a problem with such as "libncursesw.so.5 cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory", it can be solved on 32 bit Debian/Ubuntu by doing this:
apt-get install libncursesw5

MySQL Troubleshooting

  • If you are using the inbuilt MySQL functions such as dbConnect and dbQuery, you will need to have libmysqlclient.so.16 installed.
  • If you get a problem with such as "libmysqlclient.so.16: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory", it can be solved on Debian/Ubuntu by doing this:
apt-get install libmysqlclient16

If that fails:

[Optional] Installing and Configuring an External Web Server

Instructions on how to install and configure Nginx as an external web server for MTA is here: Installing and Configuring Nginx as an External Web Server

Server crashes

If your Linux server crashes, please obtain a backtrace and post a report on our Bug tracker

To obtain a backtrace:

Do you have a core dump file in the the MTA server directory?

It's usually called 'core', and usually over 100MB, and looks something like this:

Core.png

If you have a core dump file in the the MTA server directory:

  • Install gdb. To install gdb on Debian, use this command:
apt-get install gdb
  • And from the MTA install directory do this command
gdb mta-server -c core
  • When gdb launches, do this command to get a module list:
i sh
  • And then this command to get a backtrace:
bt
  • Save the output
  • (To exit gdb, use the quit command)

If you do not have a core dump file in the the MTA server directory:

  • Install gdb. To install gdb on Debian, use this command:
apt-get install gdb
  • And from the MTA server directory start the mta-server like this:
gdb mta-server -ex "set print thread-events off" --eval-command run
  • Now wait for a crash. (Ignore any weird screen output in the meantime)
  • When a crash occurs, do this command to get a module list:
i sh
  • And then this command to get a backtrace:
bt
  • Save the output
  • (To exit gdb, use the quit command)


Server freezes

If your Linux server freezes, please obtain a backtrace with thread information and post a report on our Bug tracker

To obtain a backtrace with thread information:

  • Install gdb. To install gdb on Debian, use this command:
apt-get install gdb
  • And from the MTA server directory start the mta-server like this:
gdb mta-server -ex "set print thread-events off" --eval-command run
  • Now wait for a freeze. (Ignore any weird screen output in the meantime)
  • When a freeze occurs, press ctrl-c to start gdb
  • Then do this command to get a module list:
i sh
  • And then this command to get a backtrace:
bt
  • And then this command to get thread information:
info threads
  • Save the output
  • (To exit gdb, use the quit command)
