    How to make your own WoW server (TBC!)

    How to make your own WOW private server TBC 2.0.12 UPDATED...


    now this is mutch more easy then you think.. follow the guide and have your own server in less then 10-15 min..

    1. Requirements:

    - first of all you must have game client version 2.0.12 enGB or enUS PROPERLY installed!!! get the patches here if u dont got em
    http://www.wowfiles.org/ if that one is down (it sometimes is) try this one http://a.wirebrain.de/wow/

    - Microsoft .NET framework 1.1 = http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    framework 2.0 = http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    and framework 3.0 = http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en


    - MaNGOS server (TBC)- download here http://www.sendspace.com/file/j6hxmq


    - MaNGOS database (TBC) - http://sdb.unix7.net/forums/ (you must log in on the forum to get it..)
    to make this guide very easy ill save you the time to search for it at the forum.. http://sdb.unix7.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=7055


    - Mangos tools are optional but good to have (26M - SQLyog, Minimanager - http://www.sendspace.com/file/zn2l2t


    - An to the last Mysql server 5.0 http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.0.html


    Now make a new folder and put the files you downloaded in it.. it should be: mangos database,mangosserver,Mysql server and mangos tools in the folder... these files you should keep even when your done if you need to uinstall everything (that happens when you try to put other stuff in later that dont work and fucks it up for you when you start your server... backup is good..) the framework downloads you just install and trow away..

    and one last thing... i did think most did know this but you need a program to open rar files... winace is a good one..



    2. Installation:

    (now also in video) ----->

    1 - Launch the MySQL installation application. (Setup.exe)
    When prompted, select "Typical" for setup type.
    When prompted, select "Skip Sign-Up".
    When install is complete you will be given the option to "Configure the MySQL Server Now". Make sure this is checked, then press finish.
    When prompted, select "Standard Configuration"
    When prompted, place a check in "Install as Windows Service" and "Launch the MySQL Server Automatically". Service name should be changed to "root"
    When prompted select "Modify Security Settings". In the two empty dialog boxes, type in the password "mangos"
    (If you plan on administering your MySQL instance from a remote machine, then select "Enable root access from remote machines". If you don't know if you need this, then do not select it.)

    2 - now install mangos tools

    3 - install MaNGOS server wich will automatically extract all needed data, so it will be running for ~ 10 minutes!

    4 - copy MaNGOS database SDB.SQL to C:/MANGOS/SQL/

    5 - Now go into C:/Mangos/tools and you will find SQLog.exe push it and follow the wizard

    - now you should have gotten a shortcut on the desktop.. push it.. then conect.. right click on MANGOS database in SQLyog, ( u then select IMPORT BATCH FILE and select SDB.SQL from C:/MANGOS/SQL/ and import it (just click OK) Execute

    6 - Extract map files (not all need too do this)


    - Place ad.exe into. ("C:\World of Warcraft") it might be in C/mangos or allready in C:\World of Warcraft
    Create a subdirectory called 'maps'. ("C:\World of Warcraft\maps")
    Launch ad.exe. This will begin the extraction of map files. (This can take a long time depending on your system.)
    When ad.exe has finished, copy the folder "C:\World of Warcraft\maps" and place it in your ManGOS server directory ("C:\MaNGOS"). So you should now have a "C:\MaNGOS\maps" directory containing numerous (2400+) .map files.


    - now you can give yourself a clap on the shoulder.. its only the easy stuff left now

    - if you have old database lower than version 3500 then you have to import sql files from C:/MANGOS/SQL/UPDATES/

    7. Config files
    - configure MANGOS.CONF & REALMD.CONF for your needs, but they are already configured for default system (you can change exp,highest level and gold rate in the mangos.conf after your need and mutch more just save the file when you are done....but no need for that yet..)

    8. Accounts
    - you make an account by going into SQLyog then push on realmd (leftside) now you got a list.. then push account now
    push table data (lower right side) put in username,password after your own wish and gm level (3 is good)
    here you also put an 1 where it says tbc if you want to be able to enter outland now push the save button (the littel disk.. lol..) to change the realm name push realmlist in realmd.. now change the name and save

    9. Starting server
    - click MaNGOS restarter on your desktop!
    now if you did all this should here a beep when the server is ready.. (takes 5-10 sec after you push the desktop ikon)
    when you here the beep you are done ;D

    dont use the desktop shortcut by the way... use wow.exe in your wow folder.. also in your wow folder you got a file called realmlist.wtf open it with word or something and
    change it to: set realmlist 127.0.0.1

    now log in to your account by typing the accountname/password you picked...

    You are now ready to rule your world

    if this guide did help you like it should you may rep me for it(the green arrowup)
    let me know what you think.. ;D did i miss something pls tell.. hope you did enjoy reading it anyway...

    FOR FUN :

    now when you are in... type ".commands" without the "" in the textbox to see your power..

    Try out ".modify fly 10" ( push enter) now type ".flymode on" (enter) and try to jump


    Note:
    if you set level 255 you will only have level 70 stats anyway.. right now they only have stats up to 255 for for non tbc databases..
    this they are working on as we speak (lev70-255 stats) i will put in an link for it when i see its done...
    "edit" i see i can go up to lev 215 with the stats of 215 but when i reach 220 it jumps down to 70 stats... might just be on my server..
    and yes it is a command so that you can get bigger stats crits... so that you dont need the level part...

    the power never stop ;D

    If you got an Q

    if you get an error you got a text file in your mangos folder called dberror open the text file and see what it says maybe the error is easy to fix..
    if you got a Q about an error you get pls double check the steps in the guide or check the forum posts here before posting it or pm me... i might already answerd your Q to another..
    if you are planing to uinstall then reinstall remember to check that you have uinstalled everything but the backup.. cause 2 of a file you really just want 1 of may cause an error...

    <br /><br /><br />Lets do it the easy way shall we...

    what you mean safe? its not really legal but that aint downloading movies either... the links is safe.. all the stuff is virus free..
    if you think blizz is gone take you for it thats just stupid... if you even want to be most "safe" you dont have to host it for others...
    you just use it for yourself... safe...? what is safe....? living aint safe....

    Re: Make your own WoW server (TBC!)

    I use others Private Servers but I could consider making my own. My RL Friend has one (DarkWizards) and it hasn&#39;t been working lately so I have been bored. This is a really good guide though.

    Re: Make your own WoW server (TBC!)

    Sorry I forgot to clarify...I meant safe as in virus free and you already answered that for me thanks...the only other question I have is if I am hosting one how will my friends be able to see it? I didn&#39;t see anything written about the microsoft framework link also...is that required?

    yes it is required.. dont remb why again... i been up late now.. you can change the adress in SQLyog and your friends put that in their realmlist like when they play on other private servers... you can easy make an account for them in SQLyog with password and accountname..

    hope that helped

    if you find it hard ill put out an step by step guide for that too..
