Hosting the control panel website separately

Requirements

If you want to host the control panel website on a separate server without requiring an additional license you will need:

  • Remote desktop or SSH access to the web server
  • TCAdmin 2.0.152.1 or greater
  • TCAdmin configured with a MySQL database
  • Low latency from MySQL to the web server

Limitations

  • When you update TCAdmin the web server needs to be updated manually
  • Built in DDoS protection for the control panel is not available

Configure the master to accept connections from the web server

  • The master should already be configured and have a working control panel.
  • Go to Server Management > Servers > Master > Server IPs. Add the web server's IP but disable game and voice servers on it.

Installation on Linux

  • Install Mono and TCAdmin as you would normally. You don't need to run the configuration utility to enter a license.
  • Download the File:Hosting.zip, extract and edit with notepad.
  • Update the value of "TCAdmin.ConfigUtility.Database.ConnectionString" with the information required to make the connection to the MySQL server.
  • Save your updated Hosting.config to your web server in the path /home/tcadmin/Monitor/Hosting.config
  • Restart the web server's monitor:
/home/tcadmin/Monitor/monitor-service restart
  • After restarting the monitor you should be able to log in to the control panel and test the connection to the master in Server Management > Servers > Show Versions.
  • After the control panel is working correctly you can configure the control panel website to run with Nginx for improved performance.

Installation on Windows

  • Install TCAdmin as you would normally. You don't need to run the configuration utility to enter a license.
  • Download the File:Hosting.zip, extract and edit with notepad.
  • Update the value of "TCAdmin.ConfigUtility.Database.ConnectionString" with the information required to make the connection to the MySQL server.
  • Save your updated Hosting.config to your web server in the path C:\Program Files\TCAdmin2\Monitor\Hosting.config
  • On the web server go to Start > Services and restart the TCAdmin Monitor service.
  • After restarting the monitor you should be able to log in to the control panel and test the connection to the master in Server Management > Servers > Show Versions.
  • After the control panel is working correctly you can configure the control panel website to run with IIS for improved performance.

Disable the master's control panel

Execute this command on your database if you want to disable the master's built in web server.

DELETE FROM tc_server_enabled_components WHERE module_id = '07405876-e8c2-4b24-a774-4ef57f596384' AND component_id = 2 AND server_id = 1;

If you ever need to enable the built in web server again execute this command.

INSERT INTO tc_server_enabled_components (module_id, component_id, server_id) values ('07405876-e8c2-4b24-a774-4ef57f596384', 2, 1);
