How to Install SteamCMD on Your VPS

Recommended Posts

In this tutorial we will install SteamCMD. SteamCMD can be used to download and install a lot of Steam game servers, such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), ARK Survival Evolved, and many more. Some games require a paid subscription/purchase before you can download their configuration files.

Prerequisites
