Installation of the FiveM Server

  1. Create a new directory (ex D:\FXServer\server), this is used for the server.
  2. Download the latest version of FiveM: artifacts server.
  3. Extract the data on your server.
  4. Download and unpack cfx-server-data in a folder, e.g. in  D:\FXServer\server-data.
  5. Create one server.cfg file in your folder: server data (here's an example: example server.cfg).
  6. Generate a new FiveM Server Key:
  7. Set the server license in server.cfg: sv_licenseKey "hereTheLicense".
  8. Turn on the server from the server-data folder.

If you use the pack from above, you don't have to force all the steps. It is important that the server has a correct key. If you want the server to be accessible from outside, enable the ports, otherwise friends won't be able to join.

Once you have set up the server, you can get down to business: Install ESX (everything is done with the pack). To do this, you set up a database and run the .sql. Then you start ESX and have a base for your server.

You can get various jobs in... Download and add FiveM Forum. A lot is finished, but often buggy or not necessarily usable. That's why it's worth getting to grips with it technically!

You can find the admin commands here.

Instructions for Zaphosting

  1. Load all the data from the “resources” folder into your Zaphosting “resources” folder.
  2. Open the .SQL file included in an editor/notepad.
  3. Go to “Find and Replace” and replace all “essentialmode” with your database name. It looks like this: “zap-xxx123”.
  4. Upload the SQL (import).
  5. Change your Server.cfg to Zaphosting. Only include the “start” or “ensure” lines that activate the resources.
  6. Start the server. Complete!
