From my CounterStrike Global Offence setup, I realized that hosting the HLStats server online also was hosting my phpmyadmin directory as well. As exposing the database to the outside world is very undesirable, a simple change the the Apache sites-enabled directory on Ubuntu 14.04 corrected the issue.
With the CounterStrike:Global Offensive server now up and running, I wanted to see some statistics around the activity on the server. This is a post about the HLStatsX:CE plugin and the updates made to the Perl script to allow Geographical IP mapping to work properly.
CounterStrike has always been enjoyable to play from time to time. I have had a CS 1.6 server in the past, but it was time to stand up a CS:GO server. There are many steps available online to walk through this process, however they all seem to lack the end to end setup to share your private server with the community at large. Once we outline those missing steps, we will cover how to make this into a properly functioning server.
