[How-To] FX Server Setup For Dummies


  1. First you need to create an FX server, follow these rules created by the FiveM team: https://wiki.fivem.net/wiki/Running_FXServer

  2. Set up essentialmode: [Release] EssentialMode base or use a framework like ESX:[Release] [WIP] [ESX] [Base] or vRP: [Release] vRP Framework or spend weeks creating your own framework.

  3. You will also probably need MySQL-Async: [Release] MySQL Async Library - v2.0.2 Fxserver too

  4. If you want custom cars, textures, maps, weapons, etc. then go to GTA5MODS: https://www.gta5-mods.com/
    Learn to stream addons from here: [How-To] Add-on Vehicles (Detailed)

  5. Lastly if you want scripts, search FiveM Forums: https://fivem.net/ or get a developer also using FiveM Forums: https://fivem.net/ by creating a topic under Server Bazaar (But make sure it’s under FiveM’s Terms of service) https://runtime.fivem.net/fivem-service-agreement-2.pdf

Thank You for reading the guide to building an FX Server For Dummies!


This is a guide, yet all it is is a bunch of different links.


what, no.

or just, like, use none?

like, no?

except it wasn’t a guide. more like a link to some frameworks and other tutorials?


can you help me when i join on my Server ist´s a failed:Failed to conecting to server after 3 attemps can you help me i use Vrp Dunkos version 6.2


Look at my add-on car tutorial (the one you used). Take notes…


I disagree with everyone saying this is not helpful. I’m starting out and this was a good and simple starting place to give me an idea of what the server/frameworks do. I’ve done enough messing over the prior week to figure out how to setup fiveM and play one some servers to realize that the mods are not simple to add. So I thank you for this starting point.
