cd ~/steamcmd
tar xvf steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
chmod +x
./ +@sSteamCmdForcePlatformBitness 32 +login "Your account ID" "Password" +force_install_dir ../unturned +app_update 304930 validate +exit

Install RocketMod for starting the server.

cd ..
unzip && rm -rf
mv Scripts/Linux/RocketLauncher.exe unturned/
mv Scripts/Linux/*.sh .

If you want RocketMod on your server.

mv Modules/Rocket.Unturned/ unturned/Modules/ # DO NOT USE FOR VANILLA

Making server ready


Here is where your Steam account that you created earlier is used. Put the username and password in there. If you want to keep your password private, keep the password string blank.

chmod +x
./ # For updating server and downloading files
chmod +x
cp /home/steam/unturned/
cd unturned
./ pvp # For running the server

As root

To start server on reboot
