OK, you have successfully compiled Marauroa and are wondering what to do next?

  Total time: 3 seconds

Nice, isn't it? Basically, if you have built a Marauroa server it must be because you either want to play with the server a bit yourself or because you want to run your own game server or because you are a developer who wishes to develop your own game.

If you want to run a Stendhal Server then this is not the guide for you. You do not need to run marauroa separately of the Stendhal Server, please see Host a Stendhal Server instead.

If none of the above apply it is possible you are looking for instead.


Create a MySQL database and user

Run the sql client (bin/mysql.exe on the windows noinstall package). Replace <user> and <password> with the desired values and paste the following lines to the prompt that opens:

    create database marauroa;
    grant all on marauroa.* to <user>@localhost identified by '<password>';

It should produce output similar to this:

  Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
  Your MySQL connection id is 1 to server version: 4.1.10
  Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.
  mysql> create database marauroa;
  Query OK, 1 row affected (0.03 sec)
  mysql> grant all on marauroa.* to stendhal_user@localhost identified by 'stendhal_passwd';
  Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Create server.ini file

If you don't have a game yet, see Marauroa Tutorial for how to generate a minimum server.ini and how to write the two required classes.

To create the marauroa.ini file you need to can write it by hand, copy from another place or use your game application to generate it.
Please refer to your game documentation about how to write it.

Stendhal Documentation: VisualGuideToInstallingStendhalStep5


Once you have it configured, just run the server by executing:

  java -classpath .;mysql-connector-java-3.0.7-stable-bin.jar;log4j.jar;marauroa.jar marauroa.server.marauroad -c <server.ini>

NOTE: On Unix use : instead of ; to define the classpath.

NOTE: You may change what it is logged by default, so you need to edit the file. For example:

# Set root logger level to DEBUG and its only appender to A1.
log4j.rootLogger=INFO, Console, File

# Paste all logger entries with a threshold of WARN to the console
log4j.appender.Console.layout.ConversionPattern=%-4r %-5p %c %x - %m%n

log4j.appender.File.layout.ConversionPattern=%-4r [%t] %-5p %c %x - %m%n

# Disabled debug messages for stendhal...some 10 thousand logs each minute is
# way too much

Make sure that you have the MySQL server running too. Marauroa will build all the needed table structure for itself.

This will start Marauroa.

Now refer to game documentation about how to start the game server and how to create accounts and so on. {{#breadcrumbs: Marauroa | Using | Initial Steps}}
