[Guide][VIDEO]How to download, compile, and configure MaNGOS with UDB


Recommended Posts



You will need:


Tools.rar: http://www.mediafire.com/?lxrnntztyd2 (simply contains a no-install distribution of MySQL, a mangos restarter, and a couple little batch scripts)

http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/ (GIT)

http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ (TortoiseSVN)

http://www.microsoft.com/Express/vc/ (VisualC++)

The real purpose of this guide is simply to make life easier for beginners who want something more than using someone else's repacks, and want good clean mangos as soon as it's available. There are text/image guides on this website that offer vaguely the same thing, but I myself found them to be a bit convoluted and difficult to understand my first time around (no offence, Le Froid, you were a great inspiration).


Things to note: UDB doesn't always have an up-to-date database ready for download. Keep an eye on their forums to make sure the current revision or update pack is compatible with the newest mangos revision. It usually takes several days after a new mangos release before the guys at UDB have a new update to match. The mangos team always includes updates so that you can update your database when updating your server, however, these updates haven't been completely reliable, and frankly, are a bit of a mess. Again, I mean no disrespect, I can't code to save my life, and the mangos/udb devs are my heroes. I just want to let you guys know that it's an ongoing project that nobody is getting paid to do, so it's a little rough around the edges at times.
