How to set up TeamSpeak Server on Linux VPS?  (Step by step with code blocks)

To set up TeamSpeak server on Linux VPS, you should consider the distributions running up the system. Here, we describe how you can set up this tool on Linux VPS with an Ubuntu version. In this case, before installing TeamSpeak, you should connect to the VPS through SSH and update all of your packages using the following syntax:

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

Then, you should follow the below steps:

  • Create the new user to run the TeamSpeak VPS server using the below syntax:

$ sudo adduser --disabled-login teamspeak

Switch from Admin to TeamSpeak user:

$ sudo su teamspeak

  • Find the latest version of TeamSpeak VPS.
  • Copy the download link and put the wget command at the beginning of the link:


  • If you encounter a verification error, you can use the “--no-check-certificate” parameter at the end of that URL.
  • Extract the file you have downloaded using the following command:

tar xvf [filename]

  • Now, you have a new folder in the root directory according to your filename.
  • Create a TeamSpeak file in the directory and add this new service to the list:

nano /lib/systemd/system/teamspeak.service

  • Copy all contents of the extracted file:

$ cp teamspeak3-server_linux_amd64/* -R /home/teamspeak/

  • Now, you can delete the download file since it is not required anymore:

$ rm teamspeak3-server_linux_amd64-*.tar.bz2

Create a license file and accept the TS3 server license agreement:

$ touch /home/teamspeak/.ts3server_license_accepted

  • Leave the TeamSpeak user session:

$ exit

  • To make TeamSpeak run on boot, you should create a “systemd” service file:

$ sudo nano /lib/systemd/system/ts3server.service

  • Add the following lines and save the file:


Description=TeamSpeak 3 Server





ExecStop=/home/teamspeak/ stop

ExecReload=/home/teamspeak/ restart




  • Use the following syntax to reload the “systemd” file:

$ sudo systemctl daemon-reload

  • Set some firewall rules:

root@host-ubuntu:~# sudo ufw allow 9987/udp

root@host-ubuntu:~# sudo ufw allow 10011/tcp

root@host-ubuntu:~# sudo ufw allow 3033/tc

  • Start and enable TeamSpeak VPS:

$ sudo systemctl start ts3server

$ sudo systemctl enable ts3server

  • Using the below syntax, verify the TeamSpeak server:

$ sudo systemctl status ts3server

  • Connecting to the TeamSpeak server for the first time requires the ServerAdmin privilege key. Use the below syntax to get it:

$ cat /home/teamspeak/logs/ts3server_*

How to setup TeamSpeak Server on Windows VPS? (step by step with code blocks)

To set up TeamSpeak Server hosting on Windows VPS, you might follow the below steps:

  • Log in to Windows VPS and download TeamSpeak using the browser.

  • First of all, you should extract the files to a directory.
  • Run the installer file:


  • Accept the license agreement.
  • Now, you will receive your Login Name, Password, API key, and Privilege Key.
  • Copy all of them on a clipboard or notepad to use later.
  • Since Windows needs your allowance for incoming ports, you should allow TeamSpeak port while installing this new service.
  • Once the installation is done, you should connect to the server as an admin. This way, you can make changes, control the activities, and manage the whole process in the future.
  • Click on the Connections tab, choose Connect in the pop-up menu, and type VPS IP in the “Server Nickname or Address” box.
  • Choose the “Connect” button.
  • Once connected to the TeamSpeak server, choose “Server Groups” and change your user rank from Guest to Admin using the privilege key.

How to enable TeamSpeak permissions?

Since the TeamSpeak VPS belongs to you, all permissions should be enabled to give you full control of that server. To do so, you should follow the below steps:

  • Go to the toolbar and choose “Settings”.
  • Choose the “Options” tab.
  • Click on the “Application” as the menu opens.
