I have my server working but the FastDL portion of the server guide is very poorly explained. A typical zombie mod has two mod folders, one in t4/mods and another in t4/players/mods. The guide seems to ignore this fact and doesn't specify what exactly should go in the wwwroot. What exactly should I dump into my wwwroot? I need specifics not a half assed "if http://yourserverip/mods works then ur good".
I also remember randomly reading somewhere that sv_wwwBaseURL isn't even read in the config file so you have to type that in the server console, if that's true then update the damn guide.
@IamTEADLE it's not poorly explained at all, to setup fastdl you first need (or that would be the logical first step in hosting a modded server) to setup mod loading on the server and it doesn't mention /players/mods anywhere (https://forum.plutonium.pw/topic/9342/how-to-load-a-mod-custom-mp-map-on-a-server).
the players folder contains stats and config files and since mods have their own separate stats on t4 those are stored in players/mods.
what you need to put into wwwroot is the mods folder and the usermaps folder (if running a custom map) from %localappdata%/Plutonium/t4/storage.
@Dss0 After some trial and error I finally got it to work. While the guide isn't the worst guide in the world I had to do a lot of extra stuff to get the server working and there weren't any helpful guides/tutorials on the internet.
@IamTEADLE We are not here to baby you through setting up a web server, there are countless guides on forums across the internet for that. You can't expect us to hand you everything on a silver platter, especially when the guide says
As long as you[r mods are] accessible via http://yourserverip/mods and /usermaps you should be good to setup sv_wwwBaseURL., that makes complete sense and I'm not sure how you are confused at all. I take quite a good amount of offense to your words, particularly,
The guide seems to ignore this fact and doesn't specify what exactly should go in the wwwroot. What exactly should I dump into my wwwroot? I need specifics not a half assed "if http://yourserverip/mods works then ur good"., as said earlier, we are not here to baby you through setting up a web server. You can google that.
EDIT: If you use your brain for 3 seconds, you'd realize that what's meant to go into
wwwrootis simply a folder titled
mods, then your mod, it's not difficult.
