Once MultiTheftAuto 0.5 is downloaded, you will have a file called mta05_full_installer_repack.exe. Run this program by double clicking on it and follow the on screen instructions to install MTA.

Step 3: Choices...
The easiest way to run a server is through the MultiTheftAuto 0.5 client. To do this, just launch the client, click on the "Create Server" tab, change the server details (if you wish) and click "Start Server". With this type of server, you have to be connected to it yourself, and if you close the client, the server will close with it. This is recommended if you just want to run a server quickly for some friends or aren't used to running servers.


If you want to run a dedicated server, you should run the MTAServer.exe that is installed in your MultiTheftAuto folder. Before you run the server, you should set up the config file - MTAServer.conf - that is in the same folder as the MTAServer.exe. The easiest way to do this is by using the MTA Server Config Tool (MTAServerConfigTool.exe) that is found in your MultiTheftAuto folder. Just run this tool and follow the on-screen instructions. Once you have completed either the "Wizard" mode or the "Classic" mode, you'll have a server ready to go.
