    Counter Strike Module: Install a license key.

    Hi. I am trying to install a game module (counter-Strike), However an error message apears : "Error: This module requires that you install a license key."
    I get that you dont really need one nowa days, you still need to add one in plesk.

    All the other modules on the panel in the admin login work but if it's a Game module then the error above will also be displayed.

    My questions are simple.
    1. How do I "install a licence key" for Counter-Strike.

    2. Can I use the CD key that I use to play Counter-Strike Source?

    3. I want to install counter strike source. I just wanted to double check that this option is available, is it?

    4. IF I need to buy a CD key licence from parallels for the "counter strike" module. how would I do that?

    Thank you for your help!

    Go to:


    It's $199 to buy the optional license to run a CS:S server. Don't confuse that with installing CS:S on your personal desktop or laptop... which is the client.

    If you're running a server that serves webpages, files, video, etc, you'd probably want to rent a game server from a company that specializes in it (http://www.clanservers/, for instance) rather than trying to do it all from one box as it's a little resource-intensive and it won't do both simultaneously well.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    Im only hosting the CS:S Server(s) (not website) using http://www.mediatemple.net/webhosting/dv/ I find that it should be atiquite enough to sapport multi servers. but I must say $200 for a module using Plesk to control everything?
    thats mighty steep.

    is it even neccery for me to buy or even USE this Game module?

    also I heard cPanel has the game modules for free, I believe the option to switch to if I need it. would this be a better choice?

    Thanks again!
