You need a web server. Once you have webspace, upload all of the files you want your clients to download (and I mean all of them, even the cache folders or your server will spit an error at you).
Then go into your server.cfg and put:
sv_downloadurl “url of webspace”
Remember that if it’s a custom model or something like that you need to add it to the resource.lua.
That is not existent by default, go into lua/autorun/server and create a new file, name it resource.lua
Then, you must manually add every custom file you want your clients to download, like this:
resource.AddFile("<completely file path here>")
There is an easier way, to add by directory, for that, go here:
yea but how do i upload the files?
FTP. Your webserver provider should give you all that information necessary.
You know the path, does it have to be garrysmod/models or only models/
for all files in the model directory?
For setting up a new server, i have everything all set except users download the server files from the server at 20 kb/s. I am trying to set up a new fast DL server using FTP. I have the filezilla FTP server installed on the same computer that the garrys mod server runs on. I can access the gmod server files from 127.0.0.1 from the local system, but I cant access the FTP files using my external IP. I’ve port forwarded all ftp requests to the server’s internal IP but still no luck.
Is using the setup I have even possible? Thank you for your reply.
