You can setup the database manually or using the automated script.

How to setup the AzerothCore DB using the automated script

Edit script configuration

  • Copy the file conf/dist/ to conf/
  • Open the conf/ with any text editor
  • Edit the variables accordingly, e.g. you most likely need to edit MYSQL_USER and MYSQL_PASS variables putting your mysql server settings.

Run the script

Note: if you're using MySQL 5.7, first run mysql -e "SET GLOBAL sql_mode = '';" -u root -p first (replace root with your mysql user).

Note: if you're using Windows you must set-up MySQL as an Environment Variable using this tutorial and run the commands using git bash

  • Make sure you are currently located in the azerothcore-wotlk directory
  • Run bash apps/db_assembler/
  • Select import-all: Assemble & Import all
  • Once the process is finished, you can exit the script.

Alternatively, you could also set up your DB manually but this process is harder and not recommended for beginners.
