extDB issues on Linux Wasteland Server

extDB issues on Linux Wasteland Server

« posted: Nov 25, 2020, 12:41 PM »
We are trying to make an Arma 3 Wasteland server on Linux our setup:
Ubuntu 20.04LTS
Ram 32GB
8-cores
This is in an Oracle Virtual Box VM

We are running a Modded server with no problem, however, we are having multiple issues with Wasteland when trying to use extra for Parking and other features.

Here is the steps that got us here (For the most part we have followed the Bohemia Guide to a T)
  • Installed SteamCMD
  • force_install_dir ./arma3/
  • app_update 233780 validate
  • Insert Wasteland .PBO into MP missions Folder
  • Insert Server Config into root directory
  • Installed and setup MySQL Server
At this point we would have a half working server, Just no parking as a result of no extDB
From what I understand we need the extDB ServerMod and we get this from the Github here: https://github.com/A3Wasteland
This is where we are truly lost with these files as there is multiple set of the same configs, ini, .so. And in every folder the readme.txt says to dump in root directroy
We got the furthest using this method:
  • Extracted the main ZIP
  • Pulled ONLY the "A3W_extDB3_pack"
  • Dumped it into our Arma3 root Folder
  • Moved a copy of "extDB3.so" from "@extDB" to the root directory
  • Ran the "a3wasteland_db_v2.07.sql" scripted & edited "extdb-conf.ini" to match our MySQL server
  • Verified the Database was created
  • Ran server with the following: "./arma3server -config=server.cfg -name=TEST -filePatching -autoinit -servermod=@extDB"


Following this guide on the first launch will get us extdb connection errors but when we try to fix and relaunch we get this every time: 
When we change certain files or configs it breaks as follows:

Did you ever fix the extDB connection errors?
