In this guide, you will learn how to set up an Unturned 2.2.5 server on An ITWeb.Services VPS running Ubuntu 16.04.

Note: This is an edited version of Unturned that doesn’t require SteamCMD to install. It also allows you to run multiple instances of the server, uses less ram, and runs more efficiently.


Update the system:

apt-get update -y

Install the following packages for the Unturned server to work:

apt-get install screen unzip git -y

Add i386 architecture support:

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

Then, install these libraries:

apt-get install lib32stdc++6 mono-runtime mono-reference-assemblies-2.0 libc6-dev-i386 libgcc-4.8-dev:i386 -y

Downloading Server Files

Download the server files:

wget https://github.com/Unturned/server/releases/download/4.2/unturned-linux-dedicated.tar.gz

Extract the server files:

tar -zxvf unturned-linux-dedicated.tar.gz
cd unturned-bin

Run your newly installed Unturned server:

chmod +x dedicated.sh

Installing AdminCommands

AdminCommands is a great way to have some control over your server as it does not have a console.

You will need to be in the unturned-bin directory for this part.

Use git to get a clone of the mod files on your server:

git clone https://github.com/Horsuna/Unturned.git
cd Unturned

Confirm that the files got cloned properly using ls, output should appear as follows:

AdminCommands.dll  Assembly-CSharp.dll  ModLoader.dll  README.md

Move the ModLoader and the AdminCommands into the server’s files:

mv * ../Unturned_Data/Managed/

Make a new directory for the AdminCommands mod:

mkdir mods

Move the AdminCommands mod into the mods directory

mv AdminCommands.dll mods/

You have successfully installed Unturned 2.2.5 with AdminCommands on Ubuntu 16.04.
