brand new to dedicated hosting, requesting help on running multiple instances

Post by -bZ-CapStar362 » Mon Sep 23, 2019 11:42 am

hello,

Brand new client here at hosting, id like to run a few instances of ArmA eXile Mod with a couple maps simultaneously.

Is this possible, if yes, how? if no, i can still run one here and the others on a private server.


Thanks !

That sounds just like running more than one server. Is there a specific type of service you were considering?

For standard server rentals, this just means ordering more than one server. If you are running the servers on a VDS or full machine instead, you could still run multiple servers, but they would all need to be running either on different IPs or different ports.

okay so, i am a secondary user, how do i tell if i have a VDS or full machine?

for ArmA, yes, all you have to do is change the port, but, i have little to no idea how to configure them.


To answer your "Service" question, id like to run say, 3 or 4 instances of ArmA, all on the eXile Mod just different maps.

For running multiple instances, you will need a VDS or full machine. In your control panel, your server should be listed on the left under either "Games", "Virtuals", or "Machines" to let you know which type of service that you have. If it is a game server, then it is only the one instance, but the primary user may be running it on a VDS or full machine. The primary user should be able to tell you this information, or we can look for you if you send in a help request.

How you go about configuring the servers is a fairly broad topic, but it is very different depending on if it is managed or unmanaged, due to different interfaces.

For ArmA3 running the Exile mod, you will need the following:
  • ArmA 3 server running the 32bit executable (unless someone ported/customized a extDB version for the 64bit executable)
  • Exile server
  • Exile client
  • Exile mission files
  • a MySQL/MariaDB database server
As Exile is not developed anymore, you can get the files from the Steam workshop.

Looking at it, you just have a single game server, which will only run one instance. You will either need more of those, or a VDS/machine to run multiple instances. If you plan on running your own SQL server, then an unmanaged VDS or unmanaged machine is what you will need.
