mumbleserver is a command line tool for quick, simple management of a Mumble Linux server.
- Start/Stop/Restart server
- Server monitor (includes optional email notification)
The Linux Server Manager is tested to work on the following Linux systems.
- Debian based distros (Ubuntu, Mint etc.)
- Redhat based distros (CentOS, Fedora etc.)
The scripts are written in BASH and Python and would probably work with other distros.
This guide will show you how to install a basic Mumble server to use the Mumble Linux Server Manager.
Before installing, please ensure you have all the dependencies required to run the script.
apt-get -y install mailutils postfix
yum -y install wget mailx nano
