Automatic fastdl for unmanaged VDS (Counter-strike 1.6)

Post by shady101852 » Sun Oct 07, 2018 8:55 pm

So I've been trying to find ways to basically automatically sync my counter-strike 1.6 server files for FastDL so I won't have to manually upload the files. Basically like the managed VDS websync option but for unmanaged. The conclusion I came to from multiple sources was to do it with a script. Something about cron or shell. Can anyone help me with this? I actually don't have the slightest idea of what to do. I'm pretty new to having an unmanaged VDS and have no experience with doing any type of scripts.

Hello, while I don't use either option myself(how hard is opening one extra SSH session and copying haha), you might want to look into either "lsync" or "rsync" to sync your files if you are on a linux distro.

lsync Github:

It is worth mentioning that rsync is included by default, at least on Ubuntu.

Here is another guide that seems very well laid out: https://www.atlantic.net/hipaa-complian ... s-servers/

I have always used an apache vhost pointing to my gameserver folder, I lock down anyone from snooping by disabling indexes and disallowing access to files with non-relevant extensions (snooping for configs/passwords)

Code: Select all

Options -Indexes

<FilesMatch "\.(?:inc|php|py|rb|cfg|ini)$">
Order allow,deny
Deny from all
</FilesMatch>
