Before running the CMake command, replace
/home/youruser/azeroth-server/ with the path of the server installation (where you want to place the compiled binaries).
CMake on Linux:
cmake ../ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/youruser/azeroth-server/ -DTOOLS=0 -DSCRIPTS=1

Open CMake , press
Browse Source... button and select the folder that you cloned earlier then press
Browse Build... and select a folder where the CMake will generate the build files. Press the
CMake will ask you to select what compiler to use. For example you'll want to select
Visual Studio 14 2015 Win64 to compile x64 binaries using Visual Studio 2015. Do not change the
Use default native compilers option. Press
Finish and wait until CMake is done checking for requires files.
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX to the location where you will run your server from.
Configure once again and then press
Generate. If no error occurred you can close CMake.
Go to the location where the build files have been generated and open AzerothCore.sln
BUILD then select
Build solution or press F6.
Wait until the Build has been finished (It should take between 10-40 minutes depending on your hardware).
Go to the bin/Debug or bin/Release folder inside your build folder and copy the following files into
authserver.conf.dist and rename it to
worldserver.conf.dist and rename it to
ssleay32.dll from OpenSSL install folder into
Note: Do not use ARM architecture as azerothcore requires SSE2 and ARM doesn't support it.
Inside the directory where you installed the binaries (e.g.
/home/youruser/azeroth-server/), open the
/etc directory, then:
authserver.conf.distand rename it to
worldserver.conf.distand rename it to
worldserver.conf files and go to the
MYSQL SETTINGS section, then set the variables:
LoginDatabaseInfo = "127.0.0.1;3306;root;your_password;auth"
WorldDatabaseInfo = "127.0.0.1;3306;root;your_password;world"
CharacterDatabaseInfo = "127.0.0.1;3306;root;your_password;characters"
your_password with the password of your MySQL server root user
authserver.conf has the
LoginDatabaseInfo variable only).
In the worldserver.conf file, also set:
DataDir = "/home/youruser/azeroth-server/data"
/home/youruser/azeroth-server with the path where you installed the binaries.
Go to the directory of your azeroth server (e.g.
/home/youruser/azeroth-server) and create a new directory named
Download this archive. It contains several archives, extract all of them placing the extracted
vmaps directories inside the data directory.
We will assume that you already know how to perform the basic tasks like creating a new database, selecting a database and importing a SQL dump file. If you don't, don't worry: it's very easy and you will find a lot of guides on Google, whatever MySQL client tool you're using.
Create three empty databases:
if, for some reasons, you decide to name them differently, remember to edit your
In your sources directory, move to
copy the file
config.sh.dist and rename it to
config.sh and set
Now move to
db_assembler.shfile with a text editor and replace the first line
it will generate the databases under the
/bin/db_assembler/output directory of your azerothcore sources directory.
Go to AzerothCore\data\sql\base\db_auth (AzerothCore is folder where you clone source code) open CMD and cd it there, in my case: ( You should complete to step to cd to db_auth folder ) "cd D:\Wow-Sources Repos\AzerothCore\data\sql\base\db_auth" "D:"
or more easy UI Way is shift + right click in the db_auth folder, you will see an option "open command window here" it would give the same result above.
Now type: "copy /b *.sql nameofoutputsql_youwantrofl.sql"
Then you can get a full based db_auth file without import one by one. Don't forget to do apply update/db_auth folder. Do it the same for characters and world
Using your MySQL client tool, import the generated SQL dumps:

Open 2 terminal windows (or terminal tabs) and move to the
