Hey forums! Today I am going to show you how to (Easily) create your own online server for people to play on! http://portforward.com/help/portforwarding.htm This website lets you portfoward your computer to make a terraria server! if your port is already 7777, no worries! Step 1. First what you have to do is download the Terraria dedicated server files from the main Terraria website. www.Terraria.org Scroll right to the bottom of this page and you will see "Download the dedicated server software (1.0.4)." Download this file to either your downloads folder, or anywhere else you please. Your desktop would be the ideal place to download it to considering you will be using it often (or not) to run your server. The dedicated server software is free to download, and it is a direct download with no install. So no worries! This picture should display the website you need to go on, and the files you need to download. Step 2. Open your terraria dedicated server file as shown below. Step 3. Now that you have opened your server you will see something like this. Press the number of the world you wish to select, and Bingo! You are on the way to having your server running in No time! Step 4. Choose how many people you want to be able to go on your server at one time. I set it to 15-20 people because I run a public server that usually has a high population. If it's just going to be you and 2-5 of your friends, just press ENTER for this step. You, and your server take up two player slots. Step 5. This, and the next steps are very simple, so you barely have to worry about anything! For this, You'll want to set your port to 7777. So just press enter. Scroll up if you still need to port-foward your computer! Step 6. For this step you can set your password, or not. I would use a password only if I am playing with a group of friends and don't want any interruptions, or if you are making an unmodded whitelist server so you can send a message to your players with the password so other people who aren't on your whitelist can't join your server. Step 7. Now that you have all that up and running, go to WhatsmyIP.org to check your IP adress, post that, and a description of your server in the "Server" section of the forums, and there you go! You are running your own server! Step 8. There is no step 8! your done! finito! finished! completed! yipeeee!!!!111111!!!!!11!!!!
