Starting the server

  • Run authserver and worldserver in your build folder.

For detailed information on how to configure a restarter and a debugger go to how-to-restart-and-debug page

NEVER create an account directly into your database unless you are ABSOLUTELY SURE that you know what to do and how to do it!

  • Next create your Login Account by typing directly into the worldserver window the GM Command account create. Syntax: (see examples below)

  • If you wish to set the account as a GM then type into the worldserver window: account set gmlevel $account #level #realmid where $account is the account name to change, #level can be 0-4 and #realmid is the realm ID. Setting a #level of "3" is GM account level (higher numbers = more access), and the "-1" is the realm ID that stands for "all realms".

Tip: Open your acore_world database and find the command table. This shows a full list of GM Commands, descriptions and security level. This will always be the most up-to-date list you can find, assuming you keep your DB and Core updated.

  • Minimize your servers and run WoW (never run WoW using the Launcher unless you edited the realmlist.wtf's patchlist option above).

  • Log in using the user/pass you just created.

  • The AzerothCore realm should be selectable. Log in, create a character, and you're all done!

Creating an Account

Read creating accounts.

Setting up Remote Access

For development purposes, this step is not necessary. However, for increased security when you want other people to make accounts you should set up a registration form, so you don't have to paste their passwords. Check out Remote Access on how to send commands into the server.
