Hey guys... Basically I have a beefy dedicated server on CentOS 5.3 x64 running a website game I'm developing (won't post link but if you want you can PM me).
With it running only Apache/MySQL as a web server for the game, I don't think it uses ANYTHING to run as its nowhere near popular enough yet (about 1-15 players online at any time browsing pages of the game)
So I'm looking at advertising the game using an NS1 or NS2 server. Something that appears in the server browser and a popular quick UK server for players to play on as I think good servers are quite scarse.
What I'd like to know is, is this viable to run NS1, or 2? on what I have, without lagging the game that it's running? and perhaps what would be the best way for me to get this setup and admined? I've played NS and CS for years and I'm sure I can find a clan to sponsor or some people who would love to admin a free public game server.
Thanks, I'm looking forward to hearing from you :)
