1 step: create a new user

login via ssh to your debian server and create a new user for your teamspeak 3 server.
Code:
adduser ts3server
choose whatever password you want.

now we need to create a new folder for your serverfiles and and change the owner of the folder

create folder:
Code:
mkdir /home/ts3server
change owner:
Code:
chown ts3server /home/ts3server
after that login as ts3server

Code:
su ts3server
2 step: download server files

download the latest linux server files from here: http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads
depending on if you are using x86 or a x64 linux server, you have to choose the right teamspeak server

Code:
cd /home/ts3server
wget http://dl.4players.de/ts/releases/3.0.10.3/teamspeak3-server_linux-amd64-3.0.10.3.tar.gz
3 step: installing the server

as soon your download is finished, you need to unzip all server files with this command:

Code:
tar -xzvf teamspeak3-server_linux*.tar.gz
enter the folder with this command:

Code:
cd teamspeak3-server_linux-amd64-3.0.10.3
move everything inside the folder to the upper folder with this command:

Code:
mv * ..
now we are going to start the server for the first time:

Code:
./teamspeak3-server_linux-amd64/ts3server_minimal_runscript.sh
you should see this informations now and write them down

your server is ready to run.

now that you have a working teamspeak 3 server, you want it to start automatically as soon as your server gets started too.

create a new file under /etc/init.d and call it simply ts3server:

Code:
nano /etc/init.d/ts3server
and copy paste this autostart script in it

Code:
#!/bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO

# Provides: 		teamspeak3
# Required-Start: 	$local_fs $network
# Required-Stop:	$local_fs $network
# Default-Start: 	2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop: 	0 1 6

case "$1" in
start)
su $USER -c "${DIR}/ts3server_startscript.sh start"
;;
stop)
su $USER -c "${DIR}/ts3server_startscript.sh stop"
;;

su $USER -c "${DIR}/ts3server_startscript.sh restart"

status)
su $USER -c "${DIR}/ts3server_startscript.sh status"
;;
*)
echo "Usage: {start|stop|restart|status}" >&2
exit 1
;;
esac
exit 0
set permissions for this new file
Code:
chmod +x /etc/init.d/ts3server
and now update it for autostart
Code:
update-rc.d ts3server defaults
now everytime your linux server gets restartad for whatever reason, your teamspeak server will autostart.

some commands for your server:



teamspeak start
Code:
/etc/init.d/ts3server start
teamspeak stop
Code:
/etc/init.d/ts3server stop
teamspeak restart
Code:
/etc/init.d/ts3server restart
teamspeak status
Code:
/etc/init.d/ts3server status
