In the World of Terraria, the choice is yours!
Blending elements of classic action games with the freedom of sandbox-style creativity, Terraria is a unique gaming experience where both the journey and the destination are completely in the player’s control. The Terraria adventure is truly as unique as the players themselves!

How to run a dedicated Terraria server on Ubuntu : Terraria - https://www.reddit.com/r/Terraria/comments/2a2gjn/how_to_run_a_dedicated_terraria_server_on_ubuntu/

So over the weekend I started looking into how to do this and found that a lot of the guides were outdated. I was able to piece some stuff together so I figured maybe this could be of use to someone. It's quite simple actually here's what you do:

  1. If you haven't already, install mono
    $ sudo apt-get install mono-complete
  2. Download the latest version of TShock
  3. You're gonna wanna go here and get the URL for the latest release
    $ wget https://github.com/NyxStudios/TShock/releases/download/v4.2300/TShock. (currently 4.2.3 is the latest release)
  4. Unzip the archive
    $ unzip TShock. -d tshock (-d specifies the destination directory)
  5. Change into the tshock directory and start the server!
    $ cd tshock && ./TerrariaServer.exe

You'll notice that starting it like this will lock up your terminal so you can't disconnect without stopping the server. There's a simple workaround for this:

$ screen ./TerrariaServer.exe

This will create a new "screen" where the process will run. If you want to detach from the screen just press Ctrl+A then press D. The process will continue to run, but you'll be able to disconnect or do other things on the server as necessary. If you need to get the screen back, simply run:

$ screen -r

Hope this helps someone. I spun up an Amazon EC2 instance for mine and was up and running within an hour (including piecing all this together from different information sources). TShock has some great documentation if you run into any trouble: http://tshock.co/xf/
