    Starting from scratch

    Hey everyone, for the past few months I have been thinking about making my own private server but I don't know where to start! I have googled many different things to try and figure out how to make a private server but so far I haven't had the luck of finding what I am looking for.

    Most of the info I found had told me to download and run my private server through Hamachi, though I have heard that doing this is terrible. - I've set my goals high for this server that I would like to create, and I've read that starting with Hamachi will only give me a hard time achieving my goal.

    I also haven't had the chance to read about how private servers are ran (program wise), and other requirements that are needed to successfully run one - this is kind of a big exponent that I am curious about and I do not ask you to explain it yourself, but if you know of a post somewhere that does explain it, please share

    I am looking to make a 2.4.3 BC server because I believe this was the best expansion and will attract the largest crowd. Could any of you please send me in the right direction so I am able to take my first step into creating this masterpiece, and can learn/explore from there on.



    Thank you very much for reading, and for any advice/help in advance!
    Cheers

    Well your topic definitely suits the post lol. Well it is quite the process if you have never done this before my friend. Starting a 2.4.3 server may work out for ya, but most of the population sadly enough is on 3.3.5a and Cata. I prefer 3.3.5a personally, but anyhow.......
    There are guides to show you exactly how to set one up from scratch, but they all require using a repack. If you want to succeed with your server, then a repack is not the way to go. It is always best to make your own freshly compiled server rather than using a repack.
    Google will show you everything that you need to know trust me, you just have to find the right links.

    How-to:Win - TrinityCore Wiki <=== Tutorial on compiling trinity core 3.3.5a
    Compiling: Windows - ArcEmu-Wiki <=== Tutorial Compiling Arcemu 3.3.5a

    Notice they are all 3.3.5a guides... its the least buggy (although i like cata its best to go 3.3.5a)

    Also Trinitycore is recommended by me...

    However if you really wish to go for a TBC Server WhyDB should have all that you need and the way to compile it should stay the same.

    OregonCore is also known for TBC 2.4.3 servers.
