How to Set Up a MapleStory v111 Private Server on Linux
MapleStory is a popular 2D MMORPG that has been around since 2003. The game has gone through many updates and changes over the years, but some players still prefer the old versions of the game. One way to play the old versions of MapleStory is to set up a private server, which allows you to customize the game settings and features to your liking.
In this article, we will show you how to set up a MapleStory v111 private server on Linux using Lithium, an improved server based on MapleSolaxia. Lithium is an open-source project that aims to recreate the original MapleStory v83 experience, while adding some enhancements and fixes. You will need a Linux VPS, a MapleStory v111 client, and some tools to get started.
Step 1: Install Java 8
The first step is to install Java 8 on your Linux VPS, as it is required to run the server. You can use the following commands to install Java 8 from Oracle:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
To verify that Java 8 is installed correctly, run:
You should see something like this:
java version \"1.8.0_111\"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_111-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.111-b14, mixed mode)
Step 2: Download and Configure Lithium Server
The next step is to download and configure the Lithium server files. You can use the following commands to download the latest version of Lithium from GitHub:
This will create a folder called HeavenMS in your home directory. Inside this folder, you will find the server files, scripts, tools, and documentation. You will need to edit some files to configure the server settings.
First, open the config.yaml file with your preferred text editor:
This file contains various settings for the server, such as database credentials, server name, rates, ports, etc. You will need to change some of these settings according to your preferences and VPS specifications. For example, you will need to change the host address from localhost to your VPS IP address:
interface: localhost # change this to your VPS IP address
port: 8484 # change this if you want a different port for login server
channels: # change these if you want different ports for channel servers
- port: 7575
- port: 7576
- port: 7577
- port: 7578
You will also need to change the database credentials from root/root to your MySQL username and password:
user: root # change this to your MySQL username
password: root # change this to your MySQL password
You can also change other settings such as server name, rates, max level, etc. according to your liking. Make sure to save and exit the file after editing.
Step 3: Install and Configure MySQL Database
The next step is to install and configure MySQL database on your Linux VPS. You can use the following commands to install MySQL server:
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
You will be prompted to set a password for the root user and answer some questions to secure your MySQL installation. Make sure to remember your root password as you will need it later. aa16f39245
