Obtain the MySQL Group version from right here from the windows mysql installer or simply google ‘Obtain SQL Group Version’

In that hyperlink there are two choices, use the highest one its 1.7mb and is an auto-installer simply hold every part default. It’d ask what MySQL instruments you wish to set up. I clicked full set up, it’d ask you to put in python you may ignore it. Ultimately it’ll need you to put in the instance sql information I simply canceled the setup for that and moved on you don’t want it.

This hyperlink was fairly useful with footage however kinda dated, the MySQL Server + MySQL Workbench is advisable if you happen to select customized set up. This is a step-by-step guide for the install

There are many totally different MySQL ‘workbench’ apps that create a straightforward to make use of interface for viewing and managing your SQL database. I HIGHLY suggest you put in the MySQL workbench included with the installer or get your individual, you received’t have to make use of that home windows CMD console to handle your stuff as pictured within the information.

Now that MySQL is put in we now have some floor work to handle earlier than we are able to get our server launched and essentialmode working. If you have already got FXServer working you may skip this a part of the information.

Get the latest FXServer here is the link to the Windows Server Download

Lets create a .bat file so we are able to simply begin our server and cargo sources.
I exploit Notepad++ for this I like to recommend you obtain that too.

  1. Make a brand new textual content file
  2. Put it aside as .bat file | File > Save As> Save As Kind: All Recordsdata (All Varieties .)
  3. File Title: serverstarter.bat
  4. Click on save
  5. Go to your new .bat file, proper click on and edit it with notepad++
  6. Paste this textual content after which paste your FXServer file location into the textual content.
cd C:UsersServerDesktopFXServer
C:UsersServerDesktopFXServerrun.cmd +exec server.cfg

As soon as that’s pasted in, save the file and now double click on the “serverstarter.bat” file as well your server.
Once more, C:UsersServerDesktopFXServer is my FXServer file location, it’s worthwhile to change this with the file path YOU have FXServer put in to.

Now we have to create a server.cfg file so we are able to inform the server our settings and what sources to start out up.
Go here and copy+paste the server.cfg that the devs were kind enough to supply us with.
Be certain that the server.cfg file is in your FXServer folder.

Boot your server up so it creates the citizen, sources, and cache folders in your FXServer folder.
If you happen to double click on the serverstarter.bat file and it sparkles however nothing occurs it’s worthwhile to learn my directions once more.


Now that we now have a working server we are able to get essentialmode put in on it.
Download the latest essentialmode from the forums here.

  1. Extract the .rar so we are able to entry the ‘essentialmode’ folder and ‘es_admin2’ folder.
  2. Paste the ‘essentialmode’ folder into your FXServer/sources folder.
  3. Paste the ‘es_admin2’ folder into your FXServer/sources/[essential] folder. If that doesn’t exist see step 4.
  4. If there isn’t any ‘[essential]’ folder simply make a brand new folder and title it [essential] with the brackets, then paste the ‘es_admin2’ folder into it. So it needs to be FXServer/sources/[essential]/es_admin2 as the ultimate file path.
  5. Edit your server.cfg file and add begin essentialmode and begin es_admin2
    It ought to appear like this:
# Beginning server fundamentals
begin mapmanager
begin chat
begin spawnmanager
begin fivem
begin hardcap
begin ■■■■■■■
begin scoreboard

# Beginning Essentialmode
begin essentialmode
begin es_admin2

You shouldn’t must edit something contained in the essentialmode .lua information. We’re nearly performed however now we have to set up and configured mysql-async earlier than we are able to use the essentialmode-MySQL_plugin.


Obtain MySQL-Async-Library from the FiveM Boards
mysql-async-library for fxserver

  1. Extract the folder and it needs to be named ‘fivem-mysql-async-2.xx’
  2. Rename the folder from ‘fivem-mysql-async-2.xx’ to mysql-async this is essential!
  3. We have to edit our server.cfg file once more so open that once more.
  4. Paste the next into your server.cfg file:
set mysql_connection_string "server=127.0.0.1;database=essentialmode;userid=root;password=PASSWORD"

# Initialize System Fundamental Recordsdata
begin mapmanager
begin chat
begin spawnmanager
begin fivem
begin hardcap
begin ■■■■■■■
begin scoreboard

# Beginning Mysql-async
begin mysql-async
begin essentialmode
begin es_admin2

This may allow mysql-async and inform it to make use of our essentialmode database in MySQL.
Make sure to change password=PASSWORD along with your password!


 set mysql_connection_string "server=127.0.0.1;database=essentialmode;userid=root;password=YourPassword"

^^^ This line is essential, it’s worthwhile to place this above essentialmode stuff and your system important information.

That’s all we are going to want for mysql-async, now we are going to obtain the plugin for essentialmode that permits it for MySQL and we are able to get our database imported.


Obtain esplugin_mysql from the boards it’s possible you’ll must scroll all the way down to the place it says “Customized information plugins”

Be sure you have MySQL-Async put in and dealing earlier than putting in esplugin!
esplugin_mysql for essentialmode

  1. Extract the file so we are able to entry the esplugin_mysql file
  2. Paste the esplugin_mysql file into your FXServer/sources folder
  3. Edit your server.cfg file with the next data
set es_enableCustomData 1
set mysql_connection_string "server=127.0.0.1;database=essentialmode;userid=root;password=PASSWORD"

# Initialize System Fundamental Recordsdata
begin mapmanager
begin chat
begin spawnmanager
begin fivem
begin hardcap
begin ■■■■■■■
begin scoreboard

# Beginning Mysql-async
begin mysql-async
begin essentialmode
begin esplugin_mysql
begin es_admin2

we added set es_enableCustomData 1 to the highest of our server.cfg
and we added the beginning esplugin_mysql

We simply must import the .sql database and your server needs to be able to go!

Now open your MySQL server by means of the MySQL Workbench (has a dolphin icon) you may import the ‘.sql’ script that comes with the esplugin_mysql obtain. Comply with this youtube video to import the script into your sql database. Make sure to click on refresh to see that your SCHEMAS has been up to date after working the script.

The .sql file is situated within the esplugin_mysql folder
C:UsersServerDesktopFXServerresourcesesplugin_mysql
If it asks you to call the database you may go away it clean and the script ought to title it essentialmode robotically. If the database received’t title itself then name it essentialmode


That’s it you’re performed, if you happen to have been switching from couchdb it’s possible you’ll want to inform your scripts to make use of mysql-async


This isn’t a assist thread, you received’t recieve help right here if one thing is fallacious. That is merely a information to assist out people who find themselves new to establishing servers and putting in these sources. At all times go one step at a time, check every new useful resource separately, and at all times make a backup earlier than you make edits.
If one thing is fallacious with my tutorial let me know and I can repair it.
