Need help setting up Altis Life database for my server

Recommended Posts

Great!! If it's any consolation I knew nothing about mySQL before setting up an MSO server it's really not that hard. The most common mistakes:

- not having all the prerequisites installed

- not giving the user full DB permissions in mySQL

- not having the database.txt file in the correct location or with incorrect info

- @Arma2Net not loading properly or not at all

- dropping tables is much different than emptying tables :p

I never got the help i needed. one guy offered then ragequit when i realized that he was only used to setting it up on a MANAGED server box, (mine is unmanaged cuz it runs multiple titles). So when I found out he couldn't do it, he called me names and left. Another guy just took 30 bucks from me after we had a contracted agreement that he would do it for me if I paid him. He runs a fairly big altis life community so i figured he'd have more integrity than that, but whatever. So basically I almost got the help, twice, but never actually got helped.

.

Wow, that is pretty low, I would say name and shame here, but that never ends well.

I believe my server is not connecting with the database. when the server launches it gets stuck on receiving mission and then on the dedicated machine the server crashes. Please help me

Ok I read every single reply on this post, and it seems to be the best and most up to date info I could find on the web. I am litterally moments away from getting an altis log server from Vilayer, but wanted to research and figure out how to do things so I'm not wasting money for months. Vilayer offers the arma 3 server and the MySQL product.

Is there anyone that could guide me through the whole process. I will even record it and upload it to you tube for other people that have had this problem. I will give you all the recognition for helping me out. This is my 1st time running a server. I know what a way to start, altis life. I should of started with minecraft, so some say.

But for real, can anybody at all help me. I have skype steam, w.e type of communication you need me to get I will.

You have no idea how helpful you will be..

I think you would get alot of views on youtube for that becous there is alot of people wondering about the setup of the server.

I aswell am having some issues about the config and sql so i would love to see a video upp on youtube :D

The only name I will name (because he scammed me out of money) is this man. He claimed to be able to help me then banned and blocked me off all forms of communication.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCepEyVAuxeI4t2DaAr-cNag that's his youtube.

http://altislife.enjin.com/ and this is his website. don't trust him if you ever get offered by him.

beyond that it was partly my fault for giving him money over paypal before he did anything so i'm not that upset. However, I still don't know how to set up a database AT ALL, what i thought was right was completely wrong and im still stuck on square one.

yes this is as up to date as it gets, i'm even using outside sources like Reddit and what not to research this. if i EVER find some sort of breakthrough I'll let you know, but so far the ratio of "helpful" to "im stuck in the same spot as you" is 0:9,000,000

From last page:

Check the MSO wiki for database setup instructions I'd bet they are pretty much the same

https://dev.withsix.com/projects/mso/wiki

The most common mistakes:

- not having all the prerequisites installed

- not giving the user full DB permissions in mySQL

- not having the database.txt file in the correct location or with incorrect info

- @Arma2Net not loading properly or not at all

Whelp the 617th Server is up. any group of friends who wants to play on it is free to join. :I we've only got a handful of people so police, civilians, and admins are all in high demand. Just filter "617" in the host name. beyond that, I can't help you, because the guy who set it up up freakin didn't show me anything about how he did it.
