Getting Started

This is an example of how you may give instructions on setting up your project locally. To get a local copy up and running follow these simple example steps.


  • Cloud Hosting or Virtualization Service
    Digital Ocean (Highly Recommended)
    Google Cloud Platform
  • Ubuntu Install
    Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Putty 64bit for Windows User
  • WinSCP 64bit for Windows Users who wish to transfer world files from one machine to another.


  • SSH into your newly Created VM
    From your home computer, connect to your Ubuntu VM via SSH using putty or another method. (Putty is recommended)
    If you can connect via Putty/Terminal, then you have setup at least one firewall rule setup correctly and later you can just added the required ports for Valheim.
  • Minimal Requirements:
    2 CPU and 4GB RAM 
    You might be able to get it work with less but its a dice roll with any Cloud Services.  
    Also, once your world starts becoming explored and you start building stuff... You will wish you had the minimal requirements.
    Think about this like a Minecraft Server.... Your database will grow as you continue to play.
    Therefore the need for additional CPU and RAM resources will grow.
  1. Verify GIT and Net Tools is installed =
sudo apt install -y git net-tools
  1. Change directory to OPT for installation script (Advance User do what you wish) =
cd /opt
  1. Download Easy Installer from Github - Nimdy (Zero Bandwidth) =
git clone
  1. Change directory to Dedicated_Valheim_Server_Script =
cd Dedicated_Valheim_Server_Script
  1. Give the script to execution permissions =
sudo chmod +x
  1. Launch the Menu System (Please run this as root first or a true user account with sudo permissions | DONT USE sudo -u | use sudo -i ) =
sudo ./
  1. Select Option 3 - Install Valheim Server or Add another Valheim Instance

  2. Enter a Password for the newly created NONROOT local Steam account (This is not your Steam account, just a local account to run the Valheim Server)

  3. Enter what you wish your Public Valheim Server display will be called

  4. Enter your local world name. This is the name your map data files will be called and what your World is called for those who play in it.

  5. Enter the password required to connect to your server. This is required.

  6. Your information is now saved for you later. A lot of people seem to forget this, so we added a little reminder. Keep this safe.

  7. That's it for the install! Now you need to setup your firewall rules.

  8. Now configure your firewalls to allow the game to connect. Click the wiki link listed below. Allow ports 2456,2457,2458 (TCP/UDP) on your server. This might take you a while, if you never done it before. Don't worry, members in my discord and myself can help troubleshoot later (DO NOT OVER LOOK THIS STEP)

If running in a Cloud Server, please check the WIKI for configuration steps.
