This WILL NOT function properly trying to run a server from within the game client.. (That we are currently aware of or have discovered)
It requires either
1. purchasing a game server host that is kind enough to allow Database access (Such as this one, who has posted on this thread: BlueFangSolutions) [You're welcome lol]
2. Following these steps to create a DEDICATED server from your own machine (In simple terms: "dedicated" 99% of the time means that its only function will be to keep track of multiplayer functionality and will not be attached to a client)
the game server itself
AND a MySQL server running in the background to store the servers data
AND HeidiSQL (in this case) (Database management/viewing software)
Which there is a fairly readable guide: Life is Feudal - VPS/Dedicated Server Setup Guide
Which begins with the step of opening Steam, hover over LIBRARY, select TOOLS, and installing "Life is Feudal: Your Own Dedicated Server.
I will add some of this to the main post
SIDE NOTE: Running a (just about any..) game server and having as much control as possible when acting as admin over YOUR OWN server.. Does require some technical research and knowledge..
The good news is... Once you understand the basics of how the software, clients and servers communicate, they all run on the same principles and the knowledge can be applied to other game servers in the future..
