Hello, I am going to guide you through the process of settings MTA:SA up on Ubuntu Server 12.04 32bit.




  1. Some common errors people get are related to some dependencies which are very easy to install. So run 
    apt-get install libreadline5 libncursesw5 libmysqlclient16

    and this will hopefully fix any errors you come accross.

  2. Now you need to make the folder you want to install MTA:SA in. If you don't know, just run 


    then type

    wget http://linux.mtasa.com/dl/140/multitheftauto_linux-1.4.0.tar.gz

    to download the required files.

  3. Next you need to extract the files by running

    tar -xf multitheftauto_linux*

    then run

    mv multitheftauto_linux* mtasa

    this will make it easier to start the server.

  4. Now run

    wget http://linux.mtasa.com/dl/140/baseconfig-1.4.0.tar.gz
  5. Then 
    tar -xf baseconfig*
  6. mv baseconfig*/* mtasa/mods/deathmatch
  7. After you have done that now type 

    cd mtasa

    and then type 


    if you got it right it shall load. If you want the server to run when SSH is disconnected, install screen with

    apt-get install screen
  8. Then run

    then press space twice, then 

    cd mtasa


Hope this helped you.
