Installing a Counter-Strike server involves several steps: 1. **Gather Required Software**: Counter-Strike requires the SteamCMD command-line tool to download the server files. This tool is provided by Valve and can be found in the official SteamCMD page. 2. **Download and Install SteamCMD**: Follow the instructions from Valve's official guide for your operating system to download and install SteamCMD. 3. **Create a New Directory for Your Server**: Navigate to the directory where you would like to install your server and use the `mkdir` command to create a new directory. 4. **Download Server Files**: Navigate to your server directory and use the `steamcmd` command to log in and download the server files. Replace `YOUR_STEAM_USERNAME` and `YOUR_STEAM_PASSWORD` with your own credentials. ``` ./ +login YOUR_STEAM_USERNAME YOUR_STEAM_PASSWORD +force_install_dir ./cs_server/ +app_update 740 validate +quit ``` 5. **Configure Your Server**: Configure your server to your liking using the server.cfg file in the `csgo/cfg` directory. Here you can set your server name, rules, password, etc. 6. **Start Your Server** : Now you can start your server using the following command: ``` ./srcds_run -game csgo -console -usercon +game_type 0 +game_mode 1 +mapgroup mg_bomb +map de_dust2 ``` Remember to replace `game_type` and `game_mode` with the desired game mode. Replace `+map de_dust2` with your map selection. 7. **Server Administration**: Make sure you familiarize yourself with standard server administration commands and procedures in order to manage your server effectively. Tools such as SourceMod can be very beneficial for easier server administration. Hope this helps you get started. Feel free to ask if you have further questions.
