I’ve recently been trying to set up a HL2RP server for my friends. I have configured the MySQL file with what I think is the database I created at http://www.xeround.com/,
// This is the MySQL configuration file for the OpenAura framework.
// Simply edit the values below and stick to the format of the example.
force mysql_characters_table = characters;
force mysql_players_table = players;
force mysql_username = Hazzer;
force mysql_password = xxxxxxx;
force mysql_database = HL2RP;
force mysql_host = instance12657.db.xeround.com:8576;
However when I load it there is simply a grey screen stuck at “OpenAura is initializing”.
I am not sure, but you should goto Cloud 16 and ask them about the issue, if I had to guess I would assume that there was another option you would have to add for the port as you’re probably not supposed to use the port in the address line.
MySQL is a type of database mostly used on the internet on web servers. Try getting a free database from http://www.freemysql.net/ if you really need one, I have successfully used one for testing purposes before.
