How to set up PBBans

Post by Edge100x » Fri Mar 12, 2010 12:55 pm

The easiest way to do this is through this tool that the PBBans people provide: http://account.pbbans.com/webtool.php

If you'd like to do it manually, this is a fairly simple process, as well, with just minor tweaks because we aren't allowed to offer FTP access.

1. Download the pb_cfgs.zip file from the PBBans website. Extract it somewhere on your machine (such as to a folder on your desktop).
2. Go to the "File manager" page in your control panel. Click "Create a new file".
3. Enter the file name "pb/pbucon.use" at the top (without the quotes). Click "Save", and then go back to the "File manager" page when it gives you a success message.
4. Click "Create a new file" again.
5. Enter the file name "pb/pbsv.cfg" at the top.
6. Use the upload feature at the bottom to browse for the "pbsv.cfg" file in the installation package that you downloaded.
7. Click "> Upload".
8. Visit the "Server control" page in your control panel and type this command into the console to restart PB:

Code: Select all

punkBuster.pb_sv_command pb_sv_restart
9. Add the server to your PBBans account.

The PBBans website also lists the following alternate method.

1. Go to the "Server control" page in your control panel.
2. Paste these commands into the command field, one at a time:

Code: Select all

punkBuster.pb_sv_command "pb_sv_writecfg pbucon.use"
punkBuster.pb_sv_command pb_sv_restart
3. Wait for PB to restart (Approx 10-30 seconds).
4. Enter these commands into the command field, one at a time:

Code: Select all

punkBuster.pb_sv_command "pb_sv_USessionLimit 8"
punkBuster.pb_sv_command "pb_sv_uconadd 1 208.122.49.138 pbbhub1 pbbanshub"
