How to create an OWN .vdi file for my server?


Ulthar

Question

Dear Community! maybe i posted it to a wrong topic. If its, sorry.

So i have the source for client, and for the server. BUT i dont have the .vdi file.

When i rent a host for my metin2 server, i just upload my  files to their VPS.

So my actually question is: how can i create an own .vdi file? i want to run my server(while im developing it) from my pc. Equal im not losing money for just 2-3 hours a day of developing while i paying for the hosting.
Is it possible or not?

Sorry for my horrible english. Forgive me.
Any help would be nice.

Thanks!
Ulthar.

So.. Maybe this help too many peoples.. Here is my tutorial..

How to create your own .vdi (virtual disk image) with latest freebsd.

1. Now you must download freebsd from official website. 

https://download.freebsd.org/ftp/releases/i386/i386/ISO-IMAGES/12.2/FreeBSD-12.2-RELEASE-i386-bootonly.iso

You can download bootonly. Why? Because  you download only what u need from ftp in running instalation.

2. You need virtualbox.. Too you can download it from official website.

https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.1.18/VirtualBox-6.1.18-142142-Win.exe

So! Now we have all what we need..

3. Installation.. Now we install virtualbox.. I think all knows how to install virtualbox... So I skip this... :D

4. After installation.. We open virtualbox.. It looks like this.. *Screenshot

5. We click on blue circle button with text "New".. Now looks like this.. *Screenshot

So name.. Just this is name of your new created .vdi.. You can put something what you want.. After this we set type (BSD) and version 32bit.. Why 32bit? Because metin is coded under 32bit os. We can continue with button "Next"..

6.  After this we set ram whats your .vdi can use from your pc.. (if you have 8gb ram+.. You can set 4096mb (so 4gb) Not more needed. I skip this with screenshot because it is easy understanding..

7. Now we have page about create .vdi or use one exist... So we click on "Create a virtual hard disk now" and "Create" and "VDI" and "Next".. Now I recommend "Dynamically allocated" I think all knows why.. (You really dont need monster 30gb vdi..) too "Next" and set how much gb can be used.. I recommend 20gb maximal limit.. No needed more.. (!!! This is only limit.. Size is dynamically allocated..) Now we click on "Create".. So finally.. We have empty .vdi files for host your own freebsd..

8. We click on "Settings" and search "Storage".. Like *Screenshot

spacer.png

Now "Choose a disk file.." We search in pc (for me folder "downloads") your .iso with freebsd install.. We choose this .iso.. And just continue with "OK".. Now we clasically set network... We can run your .vdi with button "Start"... So lets start installation... I think all know how to install freebsd.. (Its a clasically install process..) But I dont have too many time.. I must go.. So I write more about installation too late...
