About Linux Game server Manager

LGSM is a command line tool for quick, simple deployment and management of many Linux dedicated game servers.

The project started off as a basic script for managing a Killing Floor server. But has now drastically grown and was adapted to work with various other servers including Counter Strike and Unreal Tournament. More servers are being added regularly, new features and improvements are constantly being added.

Main Features

  • Server installer (SteamCMD).
  • Start/Stop/Restart server.
  • Server update (SteamCMD).
  • Server monitor (including email notification).
  • Server backup.
  • Server console.

Compatibility

The Linux Game Server Manager is tested to work on the following Linux systems.

  • Debian based distros (Ubuntu, Mint etc.).
  • Redhat based distros (CentOS, Fedora etc.).

Compatibility results can be found here.
The scripts are written in BASH and Python and would probably work with other distros.

    Hi Daniel, would it be possible for you to support Blade Symphony with your Linux Server Manager Scripts?

  • Diego Dias

    Hello Daniel, do you have some script for RUST servers?

  • Robin Labadie

    Hi Daniel !

    I got an issue and fix for you !
    There is still a problem with libstdc++.so.6 on Debian 64bits.
    Every time i make a server with your script, i still gotta do this so it works :
    cp steamcmd/linux32/libstdc++.so.6 serverfiles

    It NEEDS to be automated because it’s pretty hard to diagnose the first time. It’s been driving me mad.

  • Trent

    What about unturned?

  • Qusay Albaghdady

    Please how i can install bf3 and bf4 in liunx server

  • Eddie

    Looks like if your account’s protected with Steam Guard, install script sits and hangs on “Logging in User.” Not sure how to work around that without disabling Steam Guard.

    • http://danielgibbs.co.uk/ Daniel Gibbs

      You should get a prompt from SteamCMD asking for a code. Try pressing return might kick it in to life. Otherwise disable steam guard. You shouldn’t be using your main steam account anyway.

      • Eddie

        Thanks for the quick response. I’m using my alternative account, but both are SteamGuarded. I’ll go ahead and give that a try. Appreciate it!

  • Eddie

    Removed, was supposed to be a reply. >.<;

  • Osmodia

    Stupid Question, none of the servers start automatically, because you have to enter a password.

    In my rc.local, the command “su – csserver -c ‘/home/csserver/csserver start'” requires the passwords of the users.

    How do I get this to work? Empty passwords dont work.

  • Dean Janzen

    Great tools. If I want to run different servers (FoF, L4D2, TF2) should I create a separate folder for each, or can I run each script in the same folder. Will they conflict with each other?

    • https://tronko.es/ m3nda

      If you read the guide, you should know that is a preference of you. Having separate folders are “maybe” easy but you’ll occupy so much disk. Using separate *.cfg files for each server you save space. Just a modification on the launcher has to be made for that.

  • CyberCam

    Hey Daniel, If I gift you a copy of “Running with Rifles” can you create a server script for it? Let me know… I’m cybercam on Steam.

  • senzou

    Could you please make one for ARK? I’ve been using your scripts for a while and they always work great. Thanks and keep up the good work :)
