How to setup Perforce on Ubuntu 14.04 x64 server for use with Unity and Unreal Engine 4

September 13, 2014 6.5k views

I just completed setting up an Ubuntu 14.04 x64 server following both of these tutorials:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-14-04
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-protect-ssh-with-fail2ban-on-ubuntu-12-04

How can I setup a perforce repo? Here is the perforce server page:

Perforce has an installation guide on their site that is pretty thorough.

You'll first need to download the software. It's a single binary named p4d and if you copy it into the directory /usr/local/bin it will be available on your PATH You will also need to make it executable by running chmod +x /usr/local/bin/p4d Once installed, you can start the daemon by specifying the protocol, host, and port:

p4d -p tcp:example.com:3435

See their user guide for more advanced configurations.
