I am here with a completely new kind of server the ark dedicated server setup.
Here I am discussing prerequisites to setup your Linux server to ark dedicated server.
You will need a linux dedicated server with following:
The server should be 32 bit, but if you have 64bit Linux servers you will need to get it to 32bit, for this you will require binaries to install/run steamcmd. Use the following command to get it.
sudo apt-get install lib32gcc1
Here are the Linux versions you can use, the server requires glibc 2.14 or greater. Ubuntu 14.04 (and newer) and Debian 8 (Jessie) satisfy this requirement automatically, If you have older versions, such as Debian 7 (Wheezy), do not these do not satisfy needs, so you will require version of glibc on a Debian 7 (Wheezy) host:
- Add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list:
# Experimental/unstable (sid) repositories deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian sid main
- In order to update the host’s available packages list and install the updated glibc library package, you will have to run the following commands via sudo or a root user:
apt-get update apt-get -t experimental install libc6-dev
