[Ascent] Server Guide

Post by  on Fri Dec 28, 2007 11:51 am

Requirements
1. MySQL Server 5.1

2. SQLyog MySQL GUI - Community Edition (For importing) and Navicat for MySQL (For editing, optional)

3. Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0

4. Ascent Compile: Ascent Server Files

5. Character Database: Ascent Server Files

6. World Database: Ascent Server Files

7. 2.2.3 or 2.3.0 Maps (Ascent Server Files): You can download the ones I have prepacked which are for enUS, or you can use the map extractor in the Ascent Compile to extract your own. If you are extracting your own skip down to Extracting Your Own Maps.

8. 2.2.3 or 2.3.0 DBC: Included in all of the Ascent Compiles.


1. Setting up the MySQL Server
- Run the executable you downloaded from the requirements.
- Choose Typical as the setup type.
- Install the program.
- When it's done installing, make sure Configure the MySQL Server now box is checked.
- Choose Standard Configuration.
- Check Install As Windows Service.
- On the security settings, check Modify Security Settings and enter whatever you want as the password.
- Hit Next, then Execute, then Finish.
2. Importing the Databases
- Install SQLyog. Navicat is optional since it's mainly used for editing, but SQLyog is necessary.
- Once it's installed, open SQLyog.
- Create two databases: One called world and another called character.
- Right click on the character database and click Restore From SQL Dump.
- Find the character database I provided, choose it, and click Execute.
- Now it's time for the world database. Go into the world folder you downloaded. There will be a batch file called Tool.
- Right click the file and select Edit.
- There will be two things that you must change: username, passwd.
- Change username to root.
- Change passwd to whatever you made it in the MySQL setup.
- Save the file and run it.
- It will ask for a letter to do an option, type w to import the database.
- After it is done, close the program.
3. Configuring the Ascent Files [LAN]
- There will be three files that you need to edit: ascent.conf, logonserver.conf, and realms.conf.
- Open ascent.conf with Notepad. Everything that needs to be edited is in red.

/********************************************************************************
* How to use this config file: *
* Config files are in a block->variable->setting format. *
* A < signifies the opening of a block, the block name is expected after that. *
* After the block name, a space and then the settings sperated by = / ' '. *
* *
* e.g. *
* *
* *
* Comments can be in C format, e.g. /* some stuff */, with a // at the start *
* of the line, or in shell format (#). *
