This is my first guide for Host1free and basicly I am going to explain you how to install the Multi Theft Auto San Andreas mod for your Linux/Debian server.
It doesn't take that much of your RAM if you have a little amount of players. I recommend 32 players max.
This install can be handled via the SSH client PuTTY. You have to fill in some command lines and the program will do the rest!
Here we go.
Download PuTTY first. Google it, I'm not allowed to post too much URLs...
Start PuTTY and connect with your server. Use root as user!
Type: wget http://126.96.36.199..../Mta-server.sh
(if it doesn't work, go to that link on your desktop to gain the right one. It might not work, I am not sure. Mediafire issues. )
When that's done type: chmod +x Mta-server.sh
(It doesn't say anything, but it worked)
Then type: ./Mta-server.sh
If you see a menu with package configuration on top you select OK.
That was it, the server is running! If you want to start the server again when it stopped, just type ./Mta-server.sh
Maybe my tutorial wasn't that clear. It can happen. This was my first tutorial ever made. I hope anyone can use this because MTA is pretty fun to play.
If you've got any issues, reply to this thread and I'll try to solve the problem.
