Installing a Dedicated UT2003 Server

The first thing that you need to do before installing your server is to log in as the user which you want to run the server as (do not install the server as root) and download the "Dedicated Server" installer file.

Now, unzip the installer file (it does not matter what directory you are doing all this in -- we will select the game directory later) and it should produce a .bin file and a .md5 file.  You want to execute this .bin file now.
  • unzip ut2003dedicatedserver-linux.zip
  • sh ut2003lnxded.sh.bin

The installer will start out with a licence agreement and ask you to agree.  If you do, it will then ask if you want to read the "README" file.  This is up to you but it might proove useful to read.  Next, you must decide on a directory where you will install the server.  This should be a directory which does not already exist and it should be located somewhere that you will have permission to create it.  Then, you will be asked where to put the symbolic links -- you probably are not even going to use these so you might just enter /tmp and then delete them later.  Now, just confirm that it is all okay and it should start installing!  When it is done, it will ask if you want to start a web browser, which you probably do not.

At about this time, you will want to get your cdkey which should be in the form of a text file in your System directory.
For your server to appear in the global server list and participate in UT2003 stats, your server needs to be allocated a CD Key. Please visit this website to get your server CD key:
