How to configure a Counter-Strike 1.6 server

Header image

Configuration adapts server to individual needs of the owner and players. A person with access to server files can change almost all parameters, such as maximum number of players, password and many others.

If you want to configure your Counter Strike server follow this guide:

Go to the server panel and stop your server, then select ‘Startup’ tab.

This tab contains the most important parameters of your server – you can change them without editing the configuration file. The table below shows all variables you can change in ‘Startup’ tab.

Variable Default Value Description
Map de_dust2 Change map on your server
Server Name default hostname Assign name for your server
Max Players 10 Set maximum number of players allowed on your server
Time Limit 25 Set amount of time after which map will change (value in minutes)
Auto Kick OFF Enable/disable automatic autokick when somebody AFK/start friendly fire
Freeze Time 6 Set amount of time at the start of round to reload or buy weapons (value in seconds)
Friendly Fire ON Enable/disable friendly fire
Hostage Penalty 0 Set amount of hostages player need to kill to be kicked by server (0 = disabled)
Limit Teams 2 Set how many players can be asymmetrical to another team (0 = disabled)
Round Time 3 Set duration of a single round (value in minutes)
RCON Password password Set admin password
Start Money 800 Set amount of money player will get at the start
Server Password Set server password

‘Startup’ tab contains only some of server variables – if you want to edit variables not included in the table, follow this path: /home/container/cstrike/server.cfg

server.cfg is the main server configuration file
