I recommend downloading and installing an FTP client i use FileZilla http://filezilla-project.org/

In an email you should have recieved from your server provider it will tell you what your FTP details are. Put these in the top bar of the FileZilla client and login. This client works with a simple drag and drop system.

If you are using this as a match server, download the configs and maps you need then, find them on your computer in the left window of filezilla, then navigate to your server registry in the right window. Drag your maps into the cstrike>maps folder and your configs into the cstrike>cfg. Most of these will come with readmes when downloaded to help you install them. If you are using zBlock you will need to drag the specified files into your cstrike>addons folder (if there isn't one make one) but again take a look at the instructions in the downloaded file.

The same routine applies for a public server but there may be more to add in your addons folder, such as mani admin etc.

I Hope this helped, and please feel free to message me if you require any further help.

Rich.

You cant simply upload the files. You need to either have a VDS, or your own dedicated server; OR use a game-server host.

Since your using a gamehost, then you already have a working server. If what you need is an admin mod or something, use Mani Admin Plugin based on Sourcemod, upload that, and restart the server and it will work. Will need configuration. Your provider may also have an automatic install.

If he has purchased a server, off a game host, then he can access it on their servers through the FTP. I have had many css servers in the past, all worked out for me, filezilla is definately an easy client to use.

Hehe sorry, if i came across agressive there :). Yeah filezilla is good I first used it with a server from teamhost lool

NOTE: DO NOT BUY SERVERS FROM TEAMHOST. At first they seem excellent value for money, cheap and very very good quality servers however:

1. AWFUL customer service
2. After a week server randomly drops to 20-60 tick (i bought a 100 tick war server)
3. I had them issue me a new server, which was great....for a week then exactly the same happened again.

ahh well, im sure some people have had positive experiences with them.

Yes, im fully aware of that rand being completely irrelavent xD, just thought id ward you off wasting your money :)

When i had my server it was on ukgame.com, very good, you can get web hosting free for faster map downloads, it has a nice CP, really good support and cheap aswell :)

The reason i hate Gameservers.com is there CP leaves so little to tamper with i like to have full control over my servers and i find the best OS for that is linux it gives you a basic control panel and thats it a start stop utton and a instant FTP access thats all that anyone should need
