TeamSpeak3 server update

  • Updating is as easy as copying the new files over the old files… more or less… 😉
  1. Enter the TS3 servers working directory
  2. Stop the server instance with “./ stop”
  3. Fetch the new server files (check for latest url) “wget”
  4. Extract the downloaded file automatically “tar -xvf teamspeak3-server_linux_amd64-3.12.1.tar.bz2” into a new folder.
  5. Type “ls” to see all files and folders where you are.
  6. Move all files from the new directory to your TS3 working directory “mv /home/ts3server_working_dir/teamspeak3-server_linux_amd64/* /home/ts3server_working_dir/”
  7. All files should now have been moved to the working directory and overwritten the old files.
  8. Start the server as the ts3 user as you normally would do, e.g. “./ start”
  9. Verify that the version has changed in the TS3 client when you log in to your server.
