Now you don’t have to be an Expert in OpenSim to run your own virtual world! Welcome to World Box - a reliable server solution for developing Opensim grids.
When you start WorldBox, you will see the main menu of the program. The first task is to change the main server settings. This operation is necessary only during the first start of the server. Select the SETTINGS button.
On the next menu click "SERVER CONFIGS" button to get access to the main configs...
Click "EDIT SERVER CONFIGS" to open ini file for Robust server editing. Robust- it is your main server. After you click the button a txt document " Robust.ini" will appear on your screen. Here you will need change some details as your IP and ports. By default you can see localhost IP in all settings. You need change all "127.0.0.1" with your IP or domain name. Use hotkeys Ctrl+H to changing it faster.
Secondly, you need to change the login data in the [DatabaseService] section below. By default, you already have a portable MySQL in UsbWebServer. For the security of your server, you also need to change this data. If you use WorldBox for experimental purposes, you can ignore it for now.
The next thing you need is to change the name of your grid from "WorldBox" to your own. Go to the [GridInfoService] section below the document.
After that you need to save and close this document. Then the file "GridCommon.ini" opens for editing. All you need to do here is change “127.0.0.1” to your IP or domain name. Use hotkeys Ctrl + H to do this. Good. Now you can save it and close it.
Click "APPLY SERVER SETTINGS" to apply them.
Return to the main menu and click "RUN WAMP". Your portable database will start. Please wait until MySQL and Apache start up, and green checks appear next to these options. See the USBWebserver Menu below. When this happens, press the “RUN ROBUST” button. A black robust console appears.
Please do not interrupt the database creation process. When process will complete you will see how Robust will stop printing in console and "R.O.B.U.S.T. #" in last line.
CONGRATULATIONS! YOUR MAIN SERVER IS UP!
The Diva WIFI home page will open in your browser. Now you need to install it on your server. Click "INSTALL WIFI" in the upper right corner of the page to start the installation. A new window will appear in which you must enter the password for the administrator account. Your administrator account is “World Admin” and the password you will set here.
This is the last step to launch your own universe! Your database and Robust should be running when you create a new region. Just click on the “RUN REGION” button and your first region will be launched! A black console Opensim.exe will appear on the screen.
Here you can see an example of how to connect to your OpenSim virtual world. But you must keep in mind that your grid address is http://your_ip_or_domain:8002. If you use same computer where your grid installed then your address will http://localhost:8002.
