DISCLAIMER: This is for dedicated servers only. Not managed servers. DISCLAIMER: All code is presented "as is". If you modify it outside of what is specified in this thread without knowledge of what your doing. I am not held liable for any data loss. There was another thread floating around here somewhere that showed how to setup this process. The only issue with this, was that the download links don't work anymore. So I am making a new one that will be here. For those will want to know what I am using for the private server I help manage. Here is a list of what I use: Pwnoz0r's DayZ Build FireDaemon Pro FireDaemon Fusion BEC (Battleye Extended Controls) Whitelister - By Guidez Custom Log Rotation Script MySQL Installed as a service Spawn Script Dart - Rcon MySQLBackupFTP - Do MySQL Backups Windows Server 2008 So Lets get started STEP 1 New Spoiler: Image You will click on the Plus symbol on the top left. STEP 2 First Part Spoiler: Image You will then need to fill out all the info that has text in it. I will go in detail below Short Name and Display Name This will be what you see in the FireDaemon Manager and in the Service List Custom Prefix String This will add a custom name to the service name Description When you look at the Services you will see a brief description of what it is Executable This will be to where the arma2oaserver.exe is located. You should use the one located in the Expansions\beta\ folder Working Directory You will have to edit this after you add the executable (exe). It will be left to where the @hive, @bliss or any @folder is located Parameters This will be where you add all the startup parameters for the server Default Pwn DayZ Build Code: -mod=@hive;@dayz -name=cfgdayz -config=cfgdayz\server.cfg -cfg=cfgdayz\arma2.cfg -profiles=cfgdayz Start-Up Mode Should be left automatic Start-Up Time Left at 3000 ms (3 sec) STEP 4 Advanced and Debug Spoiler: Image Make sure you check the box for "Enabled Debugging". The reason for this, is to allow you to be able to see if there was any issues when it tried to start anything. It makes it easier to troubleshoot. Debug Log File You will need to save this to where ever you want. You can name the file whatever you want, but its easier to call debug. All the rest of the settings stay the way they are. STEP 5 Dependencies Spoiler: Image Here you will define all the dependencies that the server needs. You can add whatever you want but it must be a service. If you do not have MySQL installed as a service, I would advise you to do so. I used XAMPP to install MySQL and Apache, but it can be used to run just the MySQL server.
