Learn How To Install Counter-Strike 1.6 Server on Linux
Table of Contents
This guide will show you how to setup a Counter-Strike: 1.6 server on Linux. The steps here will work for most Linux distros that support SteamCMD.
First, download SteamCMD.
mkdir SteamCMD cd SteamCMD wget https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
Next, obtain the 32-bit system libs. If your system uses
yum, you can run the following command.
yum install glibc.i686 libstdc++.i686
Open the ports used by SteamCMD in your system firewall.
iptables -A INPUT -p udp -m udp --sport 27000:27030 --dport 1025:65355 -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p udp -m udp --sport 4380 --dport 1025:65355 -j ACCEPT
Extract the files of the SteamCMD archive.
tar xvfz steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
Launch SteamCMD; you will see it download and install updates.
Download the game server software.
Install CS 1.6 in a folder named “27020”. The folder is named as the port that the server will run on. Steam uses the application ID of 90 for CS 1.6.
force_install_dir ./27020/ app_set_config 90 mod cstrike app_update 90 validate app_update 90 -beta beta validate
Now, try starting your Counter Strike 1.6 server.
cd 27020 ./hlds_run -console -game cstrike +port 27020 +map de_dust2 +maxplayers 32 -pingboost 1
At this point, the server will start and you can connect to it with your game client. Enjoy!
