Install Procon 1.5.1.1 for BF4 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

I been looking to install this on one of my Linux server. Finally found a tutorial and will share here how I have successfully have it running.

Setup:
VPS with Ubuntu 14.04 64bit OS, 128MB will do.

If you don’t have a VPS, I highly recommend RamNode. They have a $15/year OpenVZ SSD and is available in different locations: NYC, ATL, SEA, LA and NL.

Login in as root to SSH.

Then get the packages below:

Create directory to where we will place our files:

Download & UnZip PRoCon:

Run the Procon.Console.exe to create the configs:

It will generate some output, stop it by pressing any Key.

Now go to the “Configs” folder and open the procon.cfg

It will look like this:

At the end of the line, add your BF4 server details:

NOTE: Change 1.1.1.1 to your gameserver IP and 12345 to your RCON port. RCON-PWD to your RCON password.

User32 can be anything, we will create that in user cfg in a while.

IMPORTANT
As of Procon version 1.5.1.1, you can copy the procon.cfg above (except for the servers details, of course)

or change this manually:

Set the languges:

And set those lines to “False” otherwise it will crash

Note:
You might change the sandbox setting to false.

Save.

Now you need to create the server config file:

NOTE: Change 1.1.1.1 to your gameserver IP and 12345 to your RCON port.

Paste the content below:

Save.

As mentioned before, now we create the username to access the ProCon layer.

Open the accounts.cfg

Paste below:

Save.

Now open again the server config file

Before:

Add:

Save.

Config files is done, now we go back to the main directory where your ProCon files are.

Run the Console and try to connect to it:

It will return an error. Leave it.

Now we create a script so you can have a way to restart your ProCon.

Start script:

Place the content:

Save.

Make it executable:

Stop script:

Place the content:

Save.

Make it executable:

Now run the start script:

To restart the service just run the stop script and then start script again.

That’s it.

You have to run the stop/start script every time especially when you are adding Plugins.

This is made possible by and credit goes to XpKiller. Original thread is available at myrcon forum.
