Step 1: Connect to your Server

The first step in setting up a Mumble server is to connect to your Linux server using SSH. You can use any SSH client, such as PuTTY or Terminal. Once you have connected, make sure that your server is up-to-date by running the following command:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

Step 2: Install Mumble Server


After updating your server, you can proceed to install Mumble server. (Debian):

sudo apt install mumble-server

if you use Ubuntu running the following command:

sudo apt-get install mumble-server
sudo dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server

This will download and install the latest version of Mumble server.

Step 3: Configure Mumble Server

Once you have installed Mumble server, you will need to configure it. You can do this by editing the Mumble server configuration file, which is located at /etc/mumble-server.ini.

To edit this file, run the following command:

sudo nano /etc/mumble-server.ini
make changes to mumble server config
you can add server password and server slots

This will open the configuration file in the Nano text editor. You can then modify the configuration according to your needs. Make sure to save the changes by pressing Ctrl+X and then exit the editor by pressing Y and Enter.

Step 4: Start Mumble Server

After configuring Mumble server, you can start it:

sudo systemctl start mumble-server

This will start the Mumble server and you can now connect to it using a Mumble client.

Step 5: Configure Firewall

By default, the Mumble server listens on port 64738. If you have a firewall enabled on your server, you will need to open this port to allow incoming connections.

You can do this by running:

sudo ufw allow 64738/tcp

This will allow incoming connections to the Mumble server on port 64738.

Step 6: Connect to Mumble Server


Finally, you can connect to your Mumble server using a Mumble client. You can download the Mumble client for your operating system from the official Mumble website.

Once you have installed the client, open it and enter the IP address or hostname of your server and the port number (64738). You can then connect to the Mumble server and start using it.
