Help with understanding what a someone is asking me

What my predicament is:
I am assisting a server owner in installing addons to the server. However everytime I install an addon, he tells me I need to also install the files to the gamemode/terrortown folder. What does he mean by this?

What I would prefer in the answer:

  • What is he asking for me to do?
  • How do I do what he is asking?
  • Why do I need to do this?

My knowledge level:
I am new to running a gmod server, but I have past experience with running a minecraft and a WoW server. I understand basic programming/server concepts.

Additional Info:
It is a Linux server that is running gmod (with TTT), and is managed with the TCAdmin panel.

Please tell me if you need more information.


Unless you’re installing custom weapons or the instructions specifically are asking for it, addons should just normally go inside garrysmod/addons. What sort of stuff are you putting on his server?

I was installing the following addons:

Damagelog -

MapVote -

Drag and drop the addon folders into the servers addons directory. Also make sure the folder names are lowercase because it’s a Linux server.

After doing this and restarting the server is there anything else I need to do?

No, you don’t need to do anything after this.
