Ark Installation Instructions

We offer an easy way to install Ark on any of our VPS/Bare Metal servers running Ubuntu 20.04.

  1. Download and install PuTTY on your local computer. You can download PuTTY from the official website: https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/latest.html

  2. Launch PuTTY and enter your server's IP address or domain name in the "Host Name" field. Leave the "Port" field as the default (22).

  3. Select "SSH" as the "Connection Type".

  4. Click on "Open" to connect to your server.

  5. Enter your server's username and password when prompted.

  6. Navigate to the directory where you want to download the installation script. For example, if you want to download it to your home directory, you can type the following command:

    cd ~
  7. Download the installation script by using the wget command:

    wget https://falconeye.gg/ark.sh

    This command will download the installation script to your current directory.

  8. Once the download is complete, make the script executable by running the following command:

    chmod +x ark.sh

    This command will make the installation script executable.

  9. Run the installation script by entering the following command:

    ./ark.sh
  10. The script will then begin to install the necessary dependencies, create a directory for the ARK server, download the server files, and create scripts to start and stop the server.

  11. The script will prompt you to enter the name of your ARK server, as well as the password and admin password. Enter these values as requested.

  12. After the script completes, you will see a message indicating that the ARK server installation is complete, along with instructions on how to start and stop the server using the created scripts. Additionally, the message will provide instructions on how to update Steam and where to go for support.

That's it! You now have a fully installed ARK server on your Ubuntu 20.04 server, and you can connect to it via PuTTY to manage it remotely. If you encounter any issues or need additional support, you can visit https://falconeye.gg for assistance.
