Server problems. Mac

I wanted to create a server, however there are no tutorials on youtube, and the ones that are there are from 6 years ago, I tried them and they didn’t work, I think the main problem is that their macOS is really old and so the command prompt isn’t similar. Does anyone know a tutorial that is new and works for macOS?

When I type ./ts3server and press enter it says:-
Please set the environment variable TS3SERVER_LICENSE to “accept” in order to accept the license agreement.

Alternatively, create a file named “.ts3server_license_accepted” in the working directory or start the server with the command line parameter “license_accepted=1”.

To view the license agreement set TS3SERVER_LICENSE to “view” in order to print the license to the console.

Alternatively view the file “LICENSE” in your favorite text viewer yourself

As i said above in Step 2:

Run the below command from the macOS terminal to accept the license agreement.


And then start your server. :slight_smile:
