Please read this guide very carefully! Rushing through your setup can cause many complications from mistakes that are made. Take your time!
Automated installation scripts are being developed. Once available, these will let you run a simple script to do all of this for you.
There is currently no ETA on the scripts.
So you've purchased your very own Clockwork schema. You're itching to get it running on a server so you can have a good time roleplaying with your buddies. But what happens if you have no idea how to set it up? Don't you worry, that's what this guide is here for.
Before you continue, make sure you have the Clockwork framework and your purchased schema downloaded from the GitHub Repo. You'll also need a working Garry's Mod server - hosted yourself or rented from a gameserver provider such as Nitrous Networks, NFO Servers or Xenon Servers.
We'll need to install the framework first, since all schemas are dependent on it.

When you're done, the folder structure for your server's
root folder should look similar to the image provided below:
Go to your root directory and you should see
libmysql.dll file there
Go to your Garry's Mod
gamemodes directory and you should see a clockwork folder there
Go to your Garry's Mod
lua folder, then open the bin folder and you should see
If you do not see these, re-read the steps above.
If you are still unable to get the file uploaded, and are using a gameserver provider, try using the Control Panel to upload the file to the correct folder.
Your host may not allow uploading of

If you're using a gameserver provider, you may not have access to go to the
rootfolder, or you might not be allowed to upload binary files - such as
.sofiles. If this is the case, set up a support ticket with your provider asking to put the required .dll files in the correct folders. Provide them a zip file with the binaries and specify the exact folder path that they go in to. This process may vary between different gameserver providers, so make sure you know of their policies before you continue!
After you've made sure that the framework is installed correctly, you can now start the installation of the schema you've purchased. The installation process is quite similar to that of the framework.
<schema>is the name of your schema (such as
Once that's done, you'll need to set up your server so it starts up using the schema. For instructions on how to do this, see the Configuration page.
If you have any problems with installing the framework or schema, please set up a support ticket at our store. Make sure you've read over this guide, first!
