Installation on VPS

Postby zahimezher » Fri Jan 22, 2010 6:42 am

Hi I recently purchased the poker mavens gold version and also purchased vps hosting from 1and1.com
I have the application installed on my desktop and connected to the vps using

Appliance Admin URL https://74.208.192.54:4643/vz/cp
Appliance Admin User Administrator
Password See initial password

i have no idea how what and where to upload files( i also have no idea what files to upload)
in order to run the application on my purchased domain and hosting package

help is greatly appreciated!

Use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to your VPS from your local machine. Configure it to share your local drives. Then use Windows Explorer on the VPS to copy and paste the Poker Mavens setup file to the VPS. And then run it from there.

You might need to login into your 1and1 account and restart your VPS via the Virtuozzo panel.

The Windows 2003 interface works just like a normal desktop version of Windows. After you run the pg278setup.exe file, you should see the green and gold "PM" icon on your desktop and the program installed in the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Briggs Softworks\Poker Mavens 2\" folder.

ok and then how does the user find the game when they enter the url. or will it load automatically?
and i was also planning to build a website consisting of a couple of pages and one of the menu buttons loads the game is it possible to do that?
I mean if i want to put a regular website on my vps where do i place all the files and index page on the desk top?

Once you click the Start button on Poker Maven's System tab, the game is now online and acting as a mini-web server on the file port. So if your IP is 74.208.192.54 and your file port is 8087 then anyone going to http://74.208.192.54:8087 in their browser will connect and return the flash client, which will start automatically. The client connects back to the server on the packet port with a persistent connection for exchanging packets. If you have your own domain name, you substitute it in instead of the raw IP. You still have to append the file port number however (unless it's 80). If you set "Directory listing" to Yes in the System settings, you can list your site at http://www.pokermavens.net. If you set a site password, it will go in the Private Server list.

Yes you can do that. You can use the IIS web server that came with your VPS or you can use another web site located anywhere in the world. Just have that button or link point to the poker server URL as described above. You can also embed the poker server URL in an iframe tag if you want it to appear inside an existing web page. I disabled the IIS web server on my VPS so I'm not sure where the index.html file goes. You'll probably have to check the Microsoft docs on that. Or if someone here knows, they can chime in.
