Setup alt:V server for Linux

You can run alt:V server at least on Debian 10 or Ubuntu 18.04.

If you want use JavaScript for server-side you should install NodeJS firstly, same thing for C# .NET Core and .NET Core SDK If you want to develop them by yourself.


As a preparing to install I recommend you use altv-serverupdater to have easy downloaded server-files (and in future updated). Remember that you need to have installed dependencies on your linux for that updater (coreutils, wget, >=jq_1.4).

apt-get install libc-bin #(debian only)
mkdir server && cd server
curl 'RAW_LINK_UPDATE_SH' > update.sh
chmod +x ./update.sh
chmod +x ./start.sh && chmod +x ./altv-server

Creating a config file

Make a new file in server root folder named server.cfg and paste this:

name: 'alt:V Server'
port: 7788
players: 128
#password: ultra-password
announce: false
#token: YOUR_TOKEN
gamemode: Freeroam
website: example.com
language: en
description: 'alt:V Sample Server'
modules: [ node-module ]
resources: [

Starting a server

Now you have ready all server files that you need. Let's try to start server with start.sh


If you get error about libatomic library just install it via your linux package manager.

apt-get update
apt-get install libatomic1

Done. :)
