Installed server takes approx. 52 GB on HDD and works as a full-functional server controlled only by WEB (i.e. without any GUI features). This version already includes ALL available terrains and WWII units module, works without 3D graphics and sounds. Terrain and WWII units doesn't asked activations when launched in server mode without rendering, server owner shouldn't buy them. [I]NOTE: these 'free' terrains can work ONLY on dedicated server without rendering. You can't use them on client.[/I] You can download installer from our site [URL="https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/world/server_beta/"]DCS World 2.5 Open Beta Dedicated Server[/URL] [B]Installation.[/B] Run installer, choose separate folder and install it as usual. Note: if you have previous server version based on DCS World client, uninstall it before. Installer will install DCS World base as well as all terrains and WWII units modules. Write folder for dedicated server is: Saved Games\DCS.openbeta_server You [b]don't need[/b] to add command line keys (--server and/or --norender) into launch icon, server will start with these options by default. Update: server checks update every day when launched (like DCS World). [B]Server control:[/B] [B]A.

Server deployed as a one module, terrain can't be excluded. Dedicated Server uses default ports: 10308 TCP and UDP for DCS 8088 TCP for web-control See also: [QUOTE=const;3832046]Dear users, Our DCS web server utilize primary IP [B] 54.36.51.100[/B] to connect to your server web port. Our API uses server-to-client connection, so your server IP address and web port are not exposed via web browser. You can easily restrict your firewall only to this IP for DCS web port and access webgui from your site account.[/QUOTE] A lot of information you can take here: [URL="https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=233486"]DCS Server Control[/URL] [I]Reserved for questions, answers, tips and notes[/I] Edited by USSR_Rik

Great Work Rik, I shall have a go at getting this set-up today (once link available) [B]Question:[/B] How do I stop it running auto update ? Reason: A lot of us use scripts (eg batch files to launch / re-start DCS servers) having it auto update might cause issues - unless the auto update requires no interaction ? Edited by HC_Official

Question: Can you opt out of installing certain terrains for the Dedicated package? In example, if I want only Caucasus and Persian Gulf, can I decline Nevada and Normandy, to reduce the size of the install? EDIT: Or at least, can I remove terrains directories from the installation, post-install without it causing issues? (as long as I only run Caucasus/Persian Gulf missions offcourse).

[B]Question:[/B] Do we still need a DCS account for this server ? You cannot start DCS.exe itself to launch the server you have to use the DCS_updater.exe if you try to use DCS.exe it will throw a wobbler and ask for keys for terrains [B]EDIT[/B]: Unless you use dcs.exe --server --norender --webgui Edited by HC_Official

Now this is more like it, opens up server hosting properly without the huge disk space limitations and messing about with those terrains, which were the big blockers for the masses when home hosting. THANKS ED! My disks love you again!

It disregard any port changes within that file.. Edited by Frosties

[QUOTE=Frosties;3891645]Having some issues, the server wont autostart, it seems that the server tries to start then fails, but if i go into WebGUI and press RUN it starts up..[/QUOTE] It will fail to autostart first time because mission list is empty. You are supposed to edit mission list via WebGUI and then start the server. Next time it will autostart.
