Creating your own WLM 2009 server the easy way

¯\_ (ツ) _/¯

I can confirm that it does except for the user creation part. You only have to enter the email there(with no braces), it asks for the password later.

Will WLM 2009 ever be available to download through escargot like WLM 8.5 and 8.1? Creating your own server involves too many steps in my opinion.

I think we will get WLM 2009 by summer. You just have to be patient.


Any can share guide for Linux? :smiley:

You have to do it on Windows.

AFAIK the OP does not know how to run it on Linux.

If you’re having issues with HLL, use this installer:
visualcppbuildtools_full.exe (3.1 MB)
You will need 3 GB of free space for the install.

The server is down! i changed the host file - i did all the steps but ist still writes:

(HELP PLS :frowning: )

It appears you are using the older, incomplete, and possibly buggy branch of Escargot (feature/wlm2009), so I’d suggest not using that and use the master branch instead. However, the main server is done and my next step is convincing valtron to get on board with client patching, so that shouldn’t take long. You can probably wait a couple months for WLM 2009 to officially be supported, assuming things go as planned.


Why is the branch still there?

To keep a record of all the major changes. That’s what the other branches seem to be there for anyway.

Does this tutorial still work? It has been since January that this tutorial was written.
